^the inspiration behind this whole thing.I spent the last three days redesigning this puppy you and I call my blog. It's been fun, it's frustrating, but I love the final product. I can honestly say it was totally worth it. I am once again in love with the way my blog looks.
When I first began graphic designing (if you even want to call it that), I had no clue what to do, what looked good, what was "in" for designing. But then I learned something. It's not about what other people think, it's about what you think and what you want. Sure, it helps if it's pretty and if it's eye catching, but I thinking of a blog's design as clothes. It helps me at least, because I love clothes so much.
Anyways, I did a lot here. When the thought first entered my mind that I should redesign my blog, I knew what I wanted. I wanted it simpler, easier to navigate. I wanted it warm and friendly. I wanted the posts to really stand out, aside from the sidebar. I knew this was a lot, but I could do it.
And now, it's finished.
There's a new banner-- courtesy of the sunflower picture here.
There are three navigation links right below the banner.
There are new colors-- yay!
There's a border around my posts that separates them from the rest of this blog. (I got help from a tutorial here.)
And, the sidebar is simplified, which makes me so happy!
Also, the about section and the links section is updated. This makes me happy too!
Actually, this whole change makes me happy and excited. I hope that with this make-over comes more time to write. I have my fingers crossed.
And I am going to bed.
