Finally a good homepage header image

10/18/2009

I found this cool image at istockphoto of polaroids on a clothesline. It came complete with clipping masks to be able to mask images to fit within the borders.

Need some oomph

Large portfolio image

Home page definitely needs something.  I do have an image of what could be a randomly pulled feature.  But that is rather small and not very eye-catching.

It’s better than the thumbnail version which is soooo small.

The problem is that a lot of these sites no longer exist with my designs. That is a big problem with portfolios. I have to look on my backup disks and see what kind of screen shots I have.

Blog header now matches site

07/28/2009

Got rid of that crazy sphere picture that was on here. Put together a quick header with the background image from my website, logo and the “aka MsWas” line added. Now we are coordinated. One thing at a time…

Backing up and launching

07/11/2009

I’m going to put my redesign live today this weekend. Right now backing up entire site to my external hard drive.

the old portfolio page will still be accessible – have to make sure that I don’t overwrite the existing CFM pages.

i can do a lot without even working on the db. my portfolio data really needs to be updated. I’m sure a lot of links are dead.

Mind, body, soul and web design

06/15/2009

I’ve decided that those are going to be the new categories here, and I’m going to try to blog on topics within those divisions regularly – certainly at a much greater length than I’ve been writing so far.

That means I’ll have to carve out more time than I have right now!

Getting Google analytics

after about a million years, looked at the webstats on my site. How limited.

Off to get google analytics. Also need them for sptsnj.org.

Blog CSS annoyance

05/31/2009

I wanted to match my blog to my website, but to show custom css here, i have to pay $14.97 a year. That is totally frickin’ annoying and aggravating. 

I guess I can follow lgesin’s blog format and put a header at the top that I like that is reminiscent of my site, but I was hoping for better integration between blog and site.

So I picked a theme that has a dark blue gradient background and a very strange picture at the top. It looks like a steel whiffleball that has light shining through it. Bet it would hurt to be tagged out with that ball!
