Well hello ladies and gents! I’m pretty excited about todays post – though for those of you who were curious to see how I’ve revamped my apartment you’ll have to wait until next week – because I’ve got some pretty big news that I mentioned originally last month but got a little side tracked from…
I have a website now! For those of you who have followed my on tumblr or my wordpress for awhile or however long, I’m no longer a subdomain! Thanks to a lovely donation of some server space from a friend who practically forced me into it (yeah, looking at you Josh, I wasn’t really given a say in the matter, ahem!) relevantsurroundings.wordpress.com is now just relevantsurroundings.com! Except its not just a blog website, I’m going to be using it for a lot of things most likely.
Of course first and foremost at the moment is the blog, which can be found by either going to the main page or simply adding /blog to the end of the site. Its powered through wordpress itself so followers no need to worry! You’ll still be able to get updates and the likes and you won’t have to navigate another new layout (that was step one, getting my wordpress layout situated so I could follow through on making the rest of the site blend with it).
It also has a revamped About Me section and a Photo page as well that will eventually hold photography, sketches, and graphic design done by myself – but for now its just another little fox sketch that links through to my Flickr and gives everyone a little apology for it being under construction!
Sorry to break it to that person who thought my sketches were ‘flat’ and ‘like an 8 year old drew them’, whoever you are anon, I warn you! You won’t like the site! It happens to feature my favorite sketch I’ve done so far – Bernard, a fox that was inspired by my own foxy little dog Pickles. I did all the work on the site myself, with a little guidance on some backend things from my generous friend Josh – but all the coding itself and sketches (of course!) were done by me, which is something I’m rather proud of as I haven’t really built a website since high school, at least not anything more then coding some images onto a page for my online journalism course. Its pretty simple for now but I’m still proud of it! It was a good practice exercise to get myself back into being able to code html and use Dreamweaver.
Hopefully in the next month the Photos page won’t be too much of a project for me and Josh to somehow tackle before my Dreamweaver trial runs out (whomp whomp whoooomp). All in all, I’m pretty stoked!
I’d really love to have everyone’s thoughts on it! Questions, comments, concerns, typo’s I overlooked because I wrote the About Me on no sleep, no caffeine, and having just written two Anthropology papers!
PS. Please ignore the wonky, randomly doubled up posts on the site blog for now! WordPress went a little overboard with the importing…
