3 Ways You Can Use Divi’s Hover Options to Creatively Emphasize CTAs
Every week, we provide you with new and free Divi layout packs which you can use for your next project. For one of the layout packs, we also share a use case that’ll help you take your website to the next level. This week, as part of our ongoing Divi design initiative, we’re going to show you how to creatively use Divi’s hover options to emphasize CTAs throughout your pages. We’re using Divi’s Laundry Service Layout Pack and we’ll handle three different examples of putting your call to action in the spotlight.
Let’s get to it!

Before we dive into the tutorial, let’s take a quick look at all three examples we’ll create:

Add New Page Using Laundry Service Homepage Layout
First, start by adding a new page to your website and upload the Laundry Service Homepage. All three examples we’ll create will be based on this layout. Once you get the approach, you can apply these examples to any layout you’re working on.

Creating Example #1: Using Another Element’s Hover to Redirect Attention to CTA

Clone Text Module
Let’s get started with the first example! We’re transforming an existing Text Module into an incentive on hover. This approach will only look good on desktop, that’s why we’re cloning the initial module to allow it to appear on smaller screen sizes without hover effects.

How to Wake Up Early (and Why You May Want to Start)
You’re probably tired (pun intended) of hearing the discussion around how great waking up early is. The problem is, your bed is a pretty nice place to be too, so it’s often a struggle to get out of it. However, we can’t deny there are undeniable benefits to seizing the day, and you’re missing out on them by hitting the Snooze button.
The earlier you wake up, the more time you’ll have to get stuff done – it’s that simple. Learning how to wake up early and sticking to it can make for a drastic change in your life. In this article, we’ll go over four tips to help you catch the worm.
Let’s roll out of bed!
Why It Pays to Be an Early Riser
Let’s face it, given the choice, most people would prefer to lounge around in bed for a while before getting up in the morning. However, this isn’t a productive use of your time. The math is simple – the earlier you wake up, the more time you’ll have to do stuff, like the following:

You’ll be able to dedicate the time to cooking and eating a healthy breakfast.
You can sip your coffee or tea in peace before you have to rush to work, maybe while catching up on personal emails.
There’s an opportunity to get a head start on your daily work.
If you’re one of those people, you can get some exercise done in the morning to start your day off with a burst of endorphins....

What’s an “inode” and How Does It Affect My WordPress Website?
One of the most common (and misunderstood) elements of a website and web hosting is the inode. If you run your own website or handle maintenance on any level at all, you will deal with inodes at some point. Whether that is through routine maintenance or attempting to fix an error, knowing what an inode is and how it affects your WordPress installation is imperative to your long-term success.
What is an Inode?
In a very general sense, an inode is a single file within your file system. For most users, that’s enough information to deal with almost everything that they will come across.
More technically, however, an inode is where the metadata for files is stored on UNIX systems (Linux servers and Apple computers are UNIX based). Inodes are the table entries that are linked to by directories and files Inodes contain all sorts of information:
This metadata includes (1) the size of the file (in bytes) and its physical location (i.e., the addresses of the blocks of storage containing the file’s data on a HDD), (2) the file’s owner and group, (3) the file’s access permissions (i.e., which users are permitted to read, write and/or execute the file), (4) timestamps telling when the inode was created, last modified and last accessed and (5) a reference count telling how many hard links point to the inode.
Because most web servers are Linux-based, inode management...
Divi Design Showcase: New Submissions from November 2018
It’s time again for our monthly Divi Showcase where we take a look at 10 amazing Divi websites made by our community members. Each month we showcase the best Divi websites that were submitted from our community and today we want to share with you the top ten websites for the month of November. Throughout the post, I’ll point out some of my favorite design features that draw me to each of the websites.
I hope you like them!
Divi Design Showcase: New Submissions from November 2018
1. Pivot Medical Coding

This site was submitted by Leslie Tagorda. The site uses a nice color-scheme of green and orange for text, background elements, icons, and within an interesting call to action in the menu which includes the date of an upcoming event and a button to register. The background elements are made of hexagons and hard angles. The icons also use hexagons. The header and menus also use a dark blue with a pattern to stand apart. The site makes great use of text and color.

2. INSNAPSYS

This site was submitted by Dinesh Milani. It uses warm colors to create a gradient that stands out against the gray background. The warm colors are also used for the text and graphic elements, buttons, overlays, and blurbs. I like the layout for the services, which displays a circled image next to an icon and text, with each service alternating down the page. The portfolio uses an interesting ...
How to Change Yourself for the Better
Change is almost always scary and seldom simple. The more significant that change is, the harder it can be to take the first step and stick to the course. However, learning how to change yourself for the better is an important skill to cultivate for success, both in your personal life and in business.
The key to improving yourself is to approach the process methodically, instead of hoping that success will fall into your lap. In this article, we’ll talk about why change can be a positive thing. Then we’ll go over five approaches you can use to change yourself for the better.
Let’s get to it!
Why Personal Change Can Be a Good Thing
A lot of us get stuck in our ways once we hit a certain age. Past that point, breaking out of our old habits and making to an effort to improve ourselves can become much harder. However, even a little push when it comes to changing yourself for the better can make a significant difference.
For example, imagine you decide to make an effort to wake up earlier in the morning each day. Here’s how that small change could have a positive effect on your life:

It can make you more productive since you’ll have more time to get things done.
You may develop a more positive outlook on life due to healthier lifestyle habits.
Better sleeping habits can improve your mood and energy levels.

When people think about personal change,...

How to Set SMART Goals (With 5 Examples)
When setting personal goals, specificity is king. For example, just challenging yourself to “do more work” is way too vague, as you’ve got no way of tracking your progress, and no endpoint. Simply put, if your goals aren’t quantifiable, achieving success can be challenging.
SMART goals are the answer, as you can break them down into five quantifiable factors. We’ll explore this in more detail shortly, but before that, we’ll talk a bit more about the importance of setting goals. Then we’ll discuss how the structure itself works and go over some examples of SMART goals.
Let’s get to it!
The Importance of Setting Goals
Setting goals for yourself is important, no matter where you are in life. Without clear goals to drive you forward, you won’t know if you’re making progress in the activities you consider most important.
The goals you set for yourself don’t have to be overly complicated either. After all, there’s a lot of middle ground between ‘taking over the world’ and ‘losing five pounds’. However, in our experience, those who set clear goals for themselves tend to enjoy greater success more consistently.
By “clear goals”, we mean examples such as “losing five pounds”. This kind of goal is achievable and quantifiable. In other words, you can track your success...

12 Best Kids Fonts for Children’s Websites and Design Projects
Designing for children can be a lot of fun. You’ll get to play with a lot of whimsical elements that are otherwise out of bounds on more ‘serious’ projects.

Fortunately, there are plenty of child-friendly fonts online. In this article, we’ve carried out some research to curate 12 of our favorite kid fonts you can use on your next design project. We’ll also talk about what makes them special and when to use them, so let’s dive right in!
12 Best Kids Fonts for Children’s Websites & Design Projects

First up, Frosty doubles as both an excellent pick for Christmas and a fantastic kids font. Even though its design is simple, it’s still fun due to the unique shape of each letter.
