Three years after publishing this blog, I’ve decided to make a minor change to the title. It’s gone from 반짝반짝 to 반짝반짝 한국어. I think I’ve subconsciously thought of my blog as the latter for a while now; it reflects the fact that it’s a blog about Korean (mostly) and that the journey has been a lustrous one (…mostly). I think my happiest experiences in the recent years have had something to do with Korean so the title is fitting in that sense. In retrospect, I kind of regret choosing a Korean word as my site name because it may make it more difficult for people to remember and/or type into a search engine, but I don’t want to change it at this point. Plus I’ve noticed that a lot of Korean language learning blogs have popped into existence in the past couple years and it’s getting more difficult to tell them all apart! A unique blog title does help in that case.
Speaking of blogs, I started a new Weebly site to write more generally about other stuff in my life. I’m kind of going for a scrapbook/portfolio type thing – that is, a space where I can showcase projects I’m working on and also write longer personal posts. As for Weebly itself… I actualy don’t know much about it. I mostly wanted to start a website where I can practice messing around with modifying and creating new themes for free. Unfortunately, there’s only a limited amount of theme customization you can do on WordPress when you have a basic account. On the other hand, Weebly has some aesthetically pleasing (free!) templates already and allows you to modify its HTML/CSS quite easily. Also, Weebly is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get website builder comprised entirely of drag-and-drop widgets that you can use to build your site without any knowledge of web development. The whole setup is quite different from the WordPress content management system. I don’t know much about different CMS but WordPress seems to cater well to people who focus on content on their blog, whereas Weebly is quite nice when you want to consider aesthetics. In any case, if you want to check it out, here’s the link!
EDIT (7/18/2016): I’ve deleted this blog.
Your decision but I think 반짝반짝 is good enough, I guess because people will already see your url and assume that’s the name however it depends on you of course :)
Hi Archana! Sorry but I got a 404 error trying to access your Weebly :_(
BTW my fav k-word is 파이팅! And i do like to write with 파 rather than 화, perhaps that can be the subject of another 반짝반짝 blog post ㅋㅋㅋ
Oh, I deleted this blog a long time ago haha. I should probably update this post. :)
