Geeky me

Although never my forte, I have been dabbling a lot with website design – out of part desperation, part curiosity.

I happen to know exactly what I want in my sites, and I find website designers either too expensive or too scarce. I also thought it was quite fun doing web design, so I went about building the sites myself.

To make up for it, I had to scour Support Forums for plugins I needed to customise my sites. That was a major pain and extremely time consuming. Whenever customisations needed me to change the coding, I would always paste the original code in Notepad and do the edits with trepidation.

Here are sites that I have “designed” so far, with the help of free themes, free plugins, free support from forums and minimal coding (yay to that):

Not anywhere near professional, but I am happy with what I see.

Logo Manager

Adds a logo to your site, fuss-free, works wonderfully


Gives you all the good stuff provides in one package – stats, sharing buttons, easy media embedding

Follow button (your site must be Jetpack-powered for this to work)

Lets people subscribe to all your new posts – and they can choose to receive updates on a by-post or weekly basis – how cool is that! No need to manually create EDMs!!


Create collapsible content blocks with simple shortcodes, like in

Date Remover

Remove uncool looking dates from all posts and pages

And for people who are looking to hide ‘No Comments’ in the Imbalance 2 homepage: this is the only feasible way that I managed to find after hours of searching –
