Good afternoon, readers! As you can see, I am in the process of jazzing up my blog (finally!) so things are going to look a little funky while I get it just right. I do things in phases to sure I like something and to make sure it works before I move onto some other details. This will ensure that things work correctly and look totally kick-ass when I’m completely finished. Obviously, things may be a little wonky for a bit but I’m hoping that I can knock it out and officially relaunch LAURENACARLTON.COM in the next few days.
Why am I bothering with this, you ask? As a writer it is important to take of the space where I keep my work. Granted, I don’t write in my blog as often as I should but I’m going to change that. See? Lots of exciting changes are happening. My goal is to get my writer’s portfolio all shiny and presentable and host it on my blog and in order to draw in potential clients I figured that I should make my blog and portfolio attractive and functional. Right now, my blog lacks personality and it’s definitely not as functional as it could be. I haven’t tackled this until now because I simply haven’t made time. This doesn’t mean that I don’t have time, I just haven’t made the time. Trust me, I have time. Hell, if I’m going to take on freelance work I better have the time, right? I want to broaden my horizons and attract the right clients to help me do that. Having a great-looking blog will certainly help. At least, it can’t hurt, right?
Forgive me for making a mess but hey, it’s my blog! If you like something I’ve changed I suggest that you don’t get too attached. When I’m working on a design (for myself or a client) I tend to fall in love with an idea and once I act on it I fall out of love. Perhaps, at least with my own personal-use designs, I’m a commitment-phobe. I can’t help it. Maybe I should start doing blog and web design again so I can have an outlet for my once-loved ideas. I feel like my graphic design skills have improved a lot since I last took on projects over a year ago. Maybe I should consider that professional avenue too. See? THE BRAIN, IT NEVER SHUTS OFF!
