Web design is one of those hobbies that gives me just as many headaches as it does feelings of accomplishment. Sure, I am proud of all the things that I have taught myself about building a website over the years, but there are still so many things that I have no idea how to do! When I get a vision for a design in my head, nothing is more frustrating than not being able to accomplish it because of my limited web design knowledge. Someday I will have to take a real web-design class so that I can do everything.
All complaints aside, I have, after many hours of work, managed to make a few important changes to the website. First of all, I have redesigned the header, and got all of the background images for each design field to line up! Yay! I also decided to add my latest two (relevant) blog posts to the homepage of the website. Now, I have been looking for ages for a way to have my blog on the homepage automatically, but I can’t figure it out! So for now I’m going to have to copy and paste each new post to the home page. I’m hoping that it will save visitors a little bit of time; they can go to the homepage, and get all of the latest news right there, instead of needing to redirect to my blog to find out what’s going on. When a blog post is exceptionally long, I may put part of it behind a link, but I am going to try and avoid that as much as possible.
There were other minor changes to the styling of primary images and I updated my age on the about me page. I just had a birthday!
In other news, today I have received a “versatile blogger award” from johnkpatterson.wordpress.com Now I have to work on my own versatile blogger post…. Maybe tomorrow! I’ve been on the computer all day and there are some things that I want to start sewing.
Now for your enjoyment, here is picture of my Christmas tree:
