Auto Dark Mode for my Website

Recently, I have redesigned my website with Blocs 4.2 beta, so it gets the perfect score on GTMetrix and PageSpeed. During the redesign process, I have changed the theme of my website back to 'Light'. I am not completely happy with the light theme, because I like to use a dark mode on my devices. So, how do I make my website look great...

Blocs Master Email Newsletter

After testing it out for a few weeks, I have decided to move my email list to HEY World. As you can see from my HEY World page, I am posting multiple posts per month, but not all posts will be sent as emails. I will only send 1-2 emails per month, as I did before.

Apple.com Mockup in Blocs 4

A couple of years ago, I have recreated Apple's Mac mini website in Blocs 3. I did it for fun, so I was amazed at how much interest this project spurred across my followers and even people who have never heard about Blocs. Since then, the developers of Blocs have introduced the next version of my favorite web design tool, Blocs 4. So, ...

Get Inspired by Work of Other Designers

During these years, I have shown this collection on my website, Blocs Master website, or a dedicated website for sites made with Blocs. A few weeks ago, I have finally updated the Built with Blocs website to include all of the latest submissions. I have man...

At the time, I have promised to share a tutorial explaining how to create a vertical navigation menu in Blocs 4, and today, ...

It's not something critically important for me, because Blocs 3 templates are working fine in Blocs 4, but it is something I want to do for all of my websites. The list of updated templates is as follows: • Music • October • Enterprise • Designer •...

Everything Starts After 2AM

Sleep is very important for humans, and I highly recommend having a good sleep every night. I am never able to sleep well because I can’t turn off the thinking process in my head. Even when I am tired, by the time I get to bed, I start to think about the past or the future. Dozens of ideas will overwhelm my brain every night, making it...

Blocs 4 Website with Vertical Navigation

I have built 100s of beautiful and responsive websites with the Blocs app, but only 3 or 4 of them have vertical or sidebar menus. I have also collected many 100s of websites from other Blocs designers, and I rarely see any websites with vertical navigation. The main reason for this is the fact that Blocs 2, 3, or even 4 do not nativel...
