Late post tonight but it's pretty much because of this. My new layout is finally up and ready to go. I'm posting this before I fix all the links so bear with me for like the next half hour or so and hopefully it'll be totally good to go. I also officially became a grad student tonight so that took a little time too! We got out super early because it's snowing like crazy here but I'm glad I at least got my first class over with. It feels real now.
A little insight into my mind about the design.. everything that deals with me is on the left sidebar and the right is devoted to others. Or should I say will be devoted to others. Right now I just have a bunch of placeholder images from past posts but soon I hope for those spaces to hold ads for other blogs and shops I particularly like. Not google ads or anything, strictly things by other bloggers/independent artists that appeal to me and therefore hopefully my readers. I know it's quite here at times but my analytics don't lie, you guys are out there ;). Just don't be too shy to chat it up! I'd love to hear your thoughts. :)
I also broke down some categories on the left on banners i created. They link to related tags but I left the categories feature for a more specific breakdown. I put a shop ad at the bottom too but that doesn't exist yet :/ I just wanted to have a place for it. The link goes to my etsy but as you'll see I have a little "vacation" message up for the time being.
I updated my about section too including a ridiculous picture of me so you can kind of see who I really am (I hope that's good thing). My 101 things has moved down below the shop ad. I'll link to it though as I update the list.
I think that's about it for now. There may be minor changes in the next few days as I see how things work but I'm pretty happy with the facelift. What can I say, I'm a designer.. I get excited about these things :).
Well I hope you like the news digs! Feel free to leave some input below!
