Transforming Your Blog Without Breaking the Bank

Hello, gorgeousness! It's been a hot minute since I hung out on this site. Honestly, I took a little break because, well, the blogging vibes weren't hitting me right. But hey, I'm back and feeling even better.

So, I'm here to spill the tea on how you can give your blog a boost without burning a hole in your pocket. I totally get it – when I first started, I was all about not spending a single dime on my blog. I mean, who wants to drop cash on things you can't even touch, right? But guess what? Times have changed, and so have my views.

Nowadays, I'm all in to make my blog pop and look pro without breaking the bank. If you're itching to take your blog to the next level but want to keep the wallet happy, you're in the right spot.

Transforming Your Blog Without Breaking the Bank

Say bye to boring fonts

First things first, let's shake things up with your fonts. Ditch the default and give your words a fresh look. Google Fonts is the MVP here – it's like a font paradise, and guess what? It's absolutely free. Find something that screams 'you!' Some of my faves are Karla, Lora, Jost, and the classic Playfair Display.

Free stock images FTW!

Spice up your blog with snazzy images, and you don't need to pay a dime. Unsplash and Pexels are my go-tos. Type in a keyword, and bam – a whole gallery of freebies! Your blog will thank you.

Aesthetics on a budget

Let's talk aesthetics. It's like a makeover for your blog. Switch up the layout of your blog, maybe add a fresh, new header. Canva is your BFF. Aesthetic vibes don't have to come with a hefty price tag.

Colours are everything

Colours matter, fam. Choose a chic color scheme – think beiges and grays. It's like giving your blog a cozy sweater for fall. Subtle, classy, and oh-so-in right now. Look at your blog; imagine it in those Insta-worthy tones. Can you see it? That's the glow-up talking.

Give old posts new life

Don't forget the classics! Evergreen content deserves a second chance. I revamped some old posts, added new insights, and boom – they're back in the spotlight. Recycling isn't just for bins, folks! I always went through my old posts and gave them a facelift. Updated information, new images, and a sprinkle of my current writing style – it made my old content feel brand spanking new.

How are you planning to revamp your blog without splurging?


  1. That's a good point Lenne :D Apa opinion Lenne abt language for blogging? Kalau tak berapa nak pro sangat English, better in malay atau macam mana?

    1. It's a complicated question to answer. It depends on your goals with your blog and which language will give you the most secure feeling I guess? Lenne banyak je stumble upon malay written blogs and they're doing so well and cara dorang write is not so baku but tak jugak rempit lol and I like it. So yeah, it depends. Either way pun still boleh tarik audience, readers and dapat banyak brand deals :)

  2. Checking old posts and if there are grammar errors is my way to improve my blog.

    1. That is one great advice, rasya! Definitely my method too sometimes.
