HI HI HI. Like my new header? I’m super into it. I’m super excited about it. I made it. I drew/painted each graphic separately by hand and then I uploaded them all on Pixlr and then I made a collage. It took awhile. My header before was also handrawn, but the graphic was so small that it looked super pixelated and poor quality. I’m so proud of this header, and I hope it is here to stay!
One of the reasons I didn’t post this last week was my frustration with customizing my blog. I had little motivation to post in an outlet I wasn’t excited about. I just wasn’t into my blog layout, header, design, font, etc. Everything about it seemed wrong, and I don’t know enough about web development (html and css) to change that.
So I spent the last week educating myself. I’m still pretty much a nube, but at least I know how to make a webpage that says. “Hi World, This is Louisa.” No but actually, that’s the only thing the webpage says. In Times New Roman.
In an effort to alleviate the boredom that has set in during this last week of summer vacation (I’ll curse myself for saying that come November), I even bought an “HTML for Dummies” book.
But as we all know, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Nor was my future superblog. Because that’s what it’s going to be, once I better understand markup and stylesheets and do more with my life than sit at home watching reruns of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Bruuuuuuuuce.
There’s also a ton of organization that goes into blogging. Who knew. But all the really intense bloggers out there, so I’ve read, are all incredibly organized with their themes and posts and material and designs and general lives. I’m not saying I’m a disorganized person, but I write very little down. I archive very little. I hate saving old papers and I hate checking things over. I’m realizing there is still so much I need to develop, like my blog purpose, my intended audience, my site design, and my material. I need to get on this, the quality of my blog is at stake!
I have no doubt we’ll all see some upcoming changes. And upcoming updates. I go back to school next Monday, and all that’s left between now and Clinton, New York is a few appointments, 7 hours left of summer employment, a computer software upgrade, and a special appointment on Sunday. On Monday morning, I’m outta here.
Eat yo’ veggies!
