Hello, Arraday

Wednesday, June 01, 2016


Hi hello how are you? :)

I have an exciting announcement to make! I finally got my own custom domain name - arraday.com!

YESSS~ I'm very excited to have my own 'brand' eep! I also changed my blog name from 'Nana's Notebook' to 'Arraday' accordingly.

What is Arraday?
Arrada (my first name) + a day in my life = Arraday! Find out more about the blog and me in my brand new About page :)

Where did I register my domain name?
I registered my domain name with GoDaddy.com with a good deal! (Shoutout to the wonderful Kandice for giving me helpful tips about domain registrations :D Thanks girl!) I also used this guide to help me set everything up.

Blog update:
I've never said this before but I've never been satisfied with how my blog looks and functions.. until now. After getting my domain, I tweaked a few things here and there, and I'm very happy with the results! My blog actually feels like my personal online space now :')

Life update:
It's exam season which means I've been swamped with revision, so I haven't had time to post a lot. Sorry about that! However, I'm fairly active on my instagram (@arrada.jpg) and snapchat (@nanafinale) if you want to know what I'm up to on a daily basis! Let me know if you added me on snapchat :)

So, what's next?
My blog contents will still be the same (personal/lifestyle), just with a brand name hehe. I bought the Adobe Creative Cloud recently so with more advanced editing programmes, I hope to improve the quality of my photos & videos!

I'm also going to integrate my brand to my youtube channel, feel free to subscribe! To celebrate my lil' blog achievement, I have a few cool posts queued for the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

What does your blog name mean?

With love,

  7. Congrats on your domain name and on how you ended up choosing it! I chose my domain 'richelgoes' because it can mean many things: richel goes on an adventure, richel goes to a concert, etc.! :)

  12. Congratulations, Nana! I see that you obtained Adobe Creative Cloud. I forgot to mention in my blog post that I use Lightroom in editing most of my blog photos (if taken with my mirrorless camera); otherwise, I just use photos I took with my iPhone. I only use Photoshop for minor editing and adding text overlays. :D

    1. Hii Jae~ thank you so much :') Ohh I see! Perhaps I'll try using Lightroom from now, it looks a lot simpler than Photoshop. Thank you for your advice!

  18. Congratulations on getting your own domain name! There's certainly something so satisfying about getting your personal domain sorted out and making a layout that really suits you. I find this sort of tidying of the space really inspires me to fill it.

    Thanks for stopping by :) Looking forward to what you'll do to your renovated blog!
