If you enjoy blogging, chances are you’ll enjoy this word game that has taken us by storm!
Yes, you probably guessed it,
Wordle by Wardle
Originated from a Wales developer, Wardle, it is now bought over by the New York Times (hence the US spelling).
You’ll need to guess a 5-letter word in six tries.
Too simple for you? Try this version:
Quordle. It’s four times the difficulty with four games at a go! You have nine tries for this one.
Still too easy? Then try this
In the meantime, you can also improve your geography with this version:
Bonus: Here’s a
Harry Potter version!

Here’s a list of hidden meaning for work end greetings!
Before I continue,
I say this in jest (disclaimer for woke keyboard warriors, you never know with the amount of triggered people today) No offense! 😛
Yours truly – I don’t know you well and it’s done unwillingly
Yours sincerely – because
it’s never sincere Best regards – default face
Warmest regards – I want you to know that I like you or that I’m the friendliest person on Earth
Warm regards – because I like you but not enough for the next level
Kind regards – same as
warm regards but an attempt to sound friendlier Regards – getting chilly here
Cheers – it means chill, nitwit!
With appreciation – at least I have manners
Yours respectfully – I’m traditional
Cordially – I’m warm but pompous
Best wishes – I hate formality
Thanks – another default face
Looking forward to hearing from you –
don’t waste my time All the best – more sincere than
yours sincerely With gratitude – I’m old-fashioned
Faithfully – used when dealing with unknown strangers

Hi guys! I have started working on a personal illustration again (after goodness knows how long haha – too busy yeah). In the meantime, what I’ve observed as a web design trend in 2014 was plenty of parallax websites.
I’m not saying they aren’t creative, it’s just that someone with a short attention span like me or just happens to have shitty internet, will not appreciate them as much and just want to get the nitty gritty details in a flash.
Hence in 2015, my prediction of web trends (to name a few) is as follows:
Parallax websites will still increase but probably not as much hype as it was in 2014
Simplicity is key; designs that are suitable for all screen sizes, responsive ones will be evident.
Typography. In the past due to limited web technology, there can only be so much choices for fonts until now. Larger text too. People are complaining about their eyesight. Jokes. Google Fonts will be your best friend:
https://www.google.com/fonts Flat designs, introduced by Microsoft, Apple and Google. This year, we will be introduced to Windows 10 which I am sure will feature more flat designs. Read more here:
http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/google-apple-microsoft-flat-design/ UI animations even minor ones, anything to bring your short attention span back to them.
Full image backgrounds. Videos for backgrounds. Or the exact opposite, nothing for backgrounds. It’s all about backgrounds.
Hidden menus. Like a ninja but an unsuccessful one.
Performance and speed is key here. Sometimes you can’t help it through a third party hosting though.
Here are several insie winsie examples:
Ruthless Spartans vs Cuddly Hipsters
The cute designs and funny title won me over.
It’s shopping. Need I to say more?
A creative play on the website link. Also, nice drawings.
I am sure there are plenty more web design trends to come, feel free to list them out.
I know my website is also due for an update (site design and projects) but I will get to that..eventually. One fine day. Haha.
