chapter 16 blog
I'm not sure if anyone noticed, but I have a new image for my background:
It's part of my whole "personalized graphics" thing - but it's still only a placeholder. This is my standard writing image which I originally acquired just for my tumblr page, but I was really happy with how it turned out.
It's currently the background image for this site which has some pros and cons. It's a little more personal (and in my opinion a little more aesthetically pleasing) but it has made the text a little bit harder to read - which I'm sure is probably pretty annoying. It's something I'm playing with. Part of the issue is that I haven't decided whether or not I'll be keeping this exact layout and I don't want to spend a ton of time arranging everything perfectly only to need to start over when I switch templates. I'll be making some decisions about that soon though, I promise.
First up is my portfolio site though - which I'm still designing. It gets priority because it's still sort of a mess right now and I'd like to have it up and running within the next week or so. If I can get my sample templates finalized today then the next couple of days I can go in and just replace my filler text with actual content and I'll be right on track.
Today's agenda is pretty much working on that, finalizing my edits for this week's submission piece, cleaning out my office and trying to stay awake for Game of Thrones. It's an exciting plan, huh?
One last thing, I just want to thank everyone again for your interest in this. I've been really surprised with the attention that this project is getting and it really does mean a lot that people are checking this out even as I'm still getting it set up. So far all the feedback has been pretty positive and it's making me very hopeful for the future of this. You guys are seriously all the best.
