New Look at Crooked Glasses!

YES! After four long years of staring at my noobish WordPress layout over on my blog, Crooked Glasses, I finally bit the bullet and switched the theme to the prepackaged Twenty Fifteen look, editing only a few colors and widgets to get it the way I wanted.

The FAQ and Links pages have been cleaned up and reworded to feel more professional. I’m also using an Archive widget instead of a custom page now, and I got rid of my feeble attempt at an Article Series page because I really don’t have any idea how to make it work anyway. ^o^

…And now I officially win the “Super Lazy Designer” Award! YAY!!! ROFL

New Site: Declutter!

After a whirlwind of inspiration hit a couple of nights ago, here is my newest baby site: Declutter! It’s GIF-heavy, hilarious, and inspiring all rolled in one little HTML page.

Declutter was born from the year-long project I’ve undertaken at my house, to finally purge my closets and house of all the junk that has accumulated over time. It’s taken a long time and I’m nowhere near done, but I’m already feeling better, and hopeful about getting it all done by the end of the year.

I hope that this little site will serve as a funny bit of inspiration for those who want to start decluttering but haven’t quite worked up the energy to do so. YOU CAN DO IT!! If this hoarder can be reformed, anyone can! XD

New Exits Page!

My “Contact,” “Affiliate,” and “Link-Exchange” pages have finally been edited and combined into one tidy single-page site: my Exits page! Give it a look-see! 😀

Also, I still am working behind the scenes on stuff in my projects list…it’s just been a weirdddd few months. ^_^;

New Site: The Impossible Dream!

olaf_joyful WOOT! Today I am happy to announce that my unusual Olaf fansite, The Impossible Dream, is officially launched! (And it’s 32 days ahead of schedule! :O!!) Click the link to see how this English major breaks down Olaf’s functions in the film, plus read analyses involving Don Quixote and the Bible–if it sounds weirdly cool, that’s because it is! 😀

(Also, I apparently love exclamation marks!!! LOL)

New Site: SiteMotif!

I am happy to announce that my old, outdated webdesign tutorials site has been reborn as SiteMotif, a curated links list of helpful webdesign resources. Check it out–it’s a single page wonder!

Also, apparently giving myself super specific public to-do lists makes me hugely productive. This is my 5th February update! :O I should make public to-do lists more often… xD

(Note: I tried to sweep my domain clear of old links to the webdesign tuts site, but if I missed a link, let me know 😀 Thank you!)

Layout Archive Revamped!

Disguises, my layout archive for WithinMyWorld.org, has received a full makeover! It’s now pretty, mobile-friendly, and pictorial thanks to Bootstrap. Bonus: I didn’t destroy anything or go batpoo crazy on anybody while debugging the Bootstrap layout! Also, there’s already a page up about Version 14, so I don’t have to quickly make that page before switching to Version 15 later. (YAY for not procrastinating ^_^)

Check it out and see how WithinMyWorld’s “disguises” have become much more skillful over the years! This is a really cool site that reminds me just how far I’ve come since I started poking around with design way back in 2003. 🙂

Fixed Up Links Page

I did a major sweep on my links page, adding, updating, and deleting links until everything is current and useful again. Plus, I put up a “Featured Sections” part on the main page so it doesn’t look so empty. 😀

Check it out, especially the Domains/Networks–I added sites from all the lovely people at Amassment.org. Give them a visit–they work just as hard as I do on their sites, if not harder!
