Hi everyone! I have a little secret that I’ve been hiding for a little while but I can’t keep it contained at the moment. I’m currently working on a new blog site for myself and will eventually abandon blogger. It’s a decent free service and all, but there are features that it lacks. I’ll be getting my own site up soon using the ever so popular WordPress, which means I will be able to use expandable posts. I realize that I like to post a lot of pictures and it must make my blog lag on Blogger. There will also be threaded comments, so that means I (and others) can actually reply to your comments in an organized manner!
It’ll actually be maybe… 70% personal blog and 30% beauty blog. It’s mostly for me. Sorry, I know that sounds selfish. I’ve started realizing how much I like writing about things that really don’t matter
Something that I’ve never told anyone is that I started fiddling with web and graphic design in middle school. At the time, WordPress did not exist. It was all about b2! Well, I had a good amount of fun for 2 years and got bored with it.
Anyway, this time around, I’m not going to be doing any of the designing or coding. I’m calling in the pros. I’ve commissioned an artist on Deviantart to make an illustration for me. I basically had a vision, explained it thoroughly to the artist, showed some examples, and it’s the artist’s job to turn my vision into a visual image. Well, the artist just sent me the sketch this morning and it looks AMAZING! I’m so happy so far and I can’t wait until she finishes the illustration.
After that, I have a designer who will design and code the overall WordPress template. Her work is amazing as well. She has created some popular free wordpress templates.
Everything pretty much is made from scratch so there will be no premade templates, no stock vectors that you see everywhere on the internet. Everything will be unique and 100% me! (except I didn’t actually draw, design, or code anything :P)
Things should be completely done in 1-2 months. I’m so exited!
