Introducing: New BCBW & New Cute Look!

by - Sunday, July 04, 2010


Hi, buddies! ¿Cómo estás? Yeayy!!! I wanna sing first - I'm soooo happy! My template project is finally done, you can see the result :D. Do you like it? Hehehe. Yup, back to blue again and bye bye pink. It was so dizzying when I was trying to modify the commenting system and highlighting the author's different commenting box, but it feels so worthy in the end when I did it :D. Doing this project is one of my reasons to being away from the bloggersphere these past few weeks. I also re-edited the watermark of hundreds of photos *you know the reason lah - I don't want that my photos will be stolen again and published in a cook book without my permisson :D*. The other reason is I'm a new teacher and the recent student final examinations is my very first one as a teacher. So, just like editing this new template, "editing" my students' scores was also dizzying and "exhausting", LOL!

Okay, back to new layout bussiness again. I can say that this new layout has fulfilled the 90% of a-dream-blog-design-of-mine :D. I've always wanted that blogspot's commenting system is as friendly as wordpress' - Wordpress: (sometimes) different background comment of guest's comment and author's comment, and sometimes with already-available-emoticons, and of course it doesn't need you to sign in first. I have already "studied" to use blogspot and wordpress, and blogspot is way easier for me to operate and modify *even when I was a starter*. Both blogspot and wordpress have their own advantages and weakness. Wordpress is more difficult to be modified (for me, even I gave up hehe) but it has very friendly commenting system and more efficient in dealing with spam. Meanwhile, blogspot is quite easy to be modified but it's commenting system is susceptible to spam and somewhat complicated (it actually can be managed to be friendly as wordpress', but I don't know how to do it hehehe LOL!).

Oya, my blog's name also changes - it's "Bonita's Cooking & Bento Wonderland" (BCBW) now :D. It feels quite hard when I decided to change the name since many people know and remember me as the author of a blog by that name. "Bonito's Cooking Wonderland", the word "Bonito" was suggested by my friends. Initially I was going to go with "BONITA's Cooking Wonderland", but my friends said that BONITO was "cooler" and since this word is familiar with us. In Indonesia, there's a well-known instant milk product whose brand's name is "BONEETO" and my friends' suggestion derived from that milk's name hehehe LOL! Later, when I checked my Feedjit to see my visitors, I noticed that there were some visitors landed on my blog from Google by searching for "bonito" and "cooking bonito" hehe. I was curious to know what is "bonito" meant by them and later I found out that "bonito" is a name of a fish (mackerel) ha ha ha - silly me and my friends! But it's okay lah :D. And the added "bento" name is because now I'm also posting more bentos :D.

For commenting system, I added some emoticons so that you can express your emotion in a cuter way hehe - images say louder than words, right? ;D. Okay, no babbling anymore - don't you want to try sending comment with cute emoticons? It's so easy, you only need to type the code on the emoticons' left side to use them - for example: if you want to use the "grin" one, you only need to type :a:

See you and thanks! :D

  3. @Lydsey: Yeay! You're the first! Thanks a lot Lydsey. I can see that the emoticon works on your comments but I've done some trials and it didn't work. It seems that the emoticons only work for "guest's comment", not for me sob sob sob
