New Site: Mellifluous!


Mellifluous
a music tributes site

I vastly expanded my old “WMW.org Radio” site to become Mellifluous, a music tributes site featuring “new to me” songs, all time top favorite tracks, and five 20-song Youtube playlists assembled according to various themes. It’s got plenty of room for expansion as I add more favorite songs and create new playlists, but for now, enjoy what I have uploaded so far!

Revamped: Lux Perpetua!


Lux Perpetua

This little site now has a new(ish) layout design, with a new color scheme and lots (LOTS) of little polishing touches! (I plugged my WIP on Discord last night and finalized everything today!)

I’m so glad to be finally content with this layout…it only took me a year and some change to figure out that the image of Dove needed to be the lightest and brightest thing in the design! Once I realized that, then the darker color scheme quickly took shape, and I started getting more excited to fix other things about the layout. Now the code has also been updated and some writing has been tidied up as well! WOO! (Just goes to show you how a little spark of inspiration can set my whole mind ablaze with productivity!)

Revamped: The Impossible Dream!

The Impossible Dream, an unusual Olaf site

After 2 years and several (SEVERAL) revisions, this little site is finally ready to show off! What was once a tiny site of 5 pages has now been rewritten and expanded with 5 brand-new articles to round out the content, including an introduction to Olaf as a character. I think I’ve finally nailed everything I wanted to say about Olaf and why I find so much to love about his character in the film!

(Fun facts: I actually had this revamp technically done on the 20th, but I waited a couple of days to see if I wanted to add anything more before officially plugging it here…also, I am still open to suggestions, especially about design choices!)

Revamped: Novel Progress Page!

Novel Progress

My third project of 2017 is live! (Actually, I even completed it yesterday–thank you, snow days! xD)

Now this little page shows the current state of my novels…yup, that’s right, novels! I took the one big book I’ve been working on for YEARS and officially split it into three books. The second and third books are novel-length already (over 75,000 words), and the first book will be as soon as I beef it up with more story and description. At least…I hope so ^_^;

Anyhow, take a moment and check out the new and improved-ness! YAY PRODUCTIVITY AT LAST 😀

Relaunched: Ephemera

e p h e m e r a
an unusual Clefairy site

My first official project of 2017 is complete! What was once “Elusive Enchanter” has been reborn and completely overhauled as Ephemera, a much better fansite for my favorite little Pokemon.

The site now features:

  • All-new seven-part info section about Clefairy in the anime & games
  • Expanded mythology articles
  • Larger poetry section, with five original poems inspired by Clefairy
  • Expanded music article and broadened song selection (each song has its own page now)
  • Images to enhance and illustrate content
  • Completely redesigned layout, including two tricks I’ve never tried before: a shimmery text effect in the top bar (thanks to Masao for helping me debug!!) and a partially-transparent cloud image floating atop the layout.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

(I am also still trying to make the shimmer text effect work in IE, to no avail–I have tried some fallback styles but I don’t think I’m doing them right. Any advice is greatly appreciated, as always!)

November Nouveau, Round 5: Declutter!


Declutter
a philosophy

Just as I did with Unspend a few days ago, I edited and reworked this little site as well! (The decluttering advice is better and so is the formatting, thank God, LOL)

(By the way, have I ever told y’all how much I love Google Fonts? Because I really do. They make my life easier and thus I can be the lazy efficient designer and developer that I want to be. ♥

November Nouveau, Round 2: Good Ol’ Ev!

Hooray! Another November Nouveau, because apparently all my productivity has come back in droves!

Today, I bring you a small revamp:


Good Ol’ Ev!
a fansite for Evinrude from The Rescuers

This little site didn’t need any work on its content, so I was able to just shine up and polish the design. Now armed with Google Fonts, better color selections, and some formatting changes, this site hopefully reads and looks much better! 😀
