New blog header/designingSaturday, February 23, 2013
I felt like i needed a change, i'd had the previous header on my first wordpress blog too. I design my own headers and I use Photoshop to create them. This time i decided to go for a more simple blog header rather than a busy more pigmented one that I had created before. This time i've also included a blog button which you can find on the sidebar.
I've been graphic designing since i was about 9 or 10, i know that's early but I first started using paint (obviously) then photofiltre, then gimp and then photoshop which is of course, what i use now. Up until late 2011 i used to create graphics by using celebrity pictures for fan sites and such, I had a few of my own but mainly the websites I created were design sites were people could order custom designs made by me. I really enjoyed this and as i have said i've always been a creative person. I no longer have any websites that are active, i'm sure there are many that i've forgotten to delete as i made TONS, specifically using webs.com. I haven't grown out of graphic designing though and now i have a reason to create designs again - for my blog, i'm so glad about this.
I've been thinking of having a go at creating a blog layout with html included as i too used to be able to code layouts including image mapping. I just felt like making this post, in case any of you were wondering (then again, you probably were not). I learnt html at the age of 11 (i think) and I loved it. It's been a good two years since i designed and coded full layouts but I still remember most things, the tricky thing is, is that blogspot layouts are a bit different than the layouts that i'm used to coding for webs.com and such, so, that's the only downside. Maybe when i have some spare time i will try and teach myself the ways of a blogger layout and have a go at it, I always like learning new things even though I can get quite frustrated with myself, if i stick to it i'm sure i'll get the hang of it.
