Hi and welcome to www.tinkererofwords.com. 🙂
This is definitely the biggest blog update, EVER. I’m still so giddy so it’s hard to remember to sound eloquent but LOOK I HAVE A DOMAIN NAME NOW! ISN’T THAT CRAZY?! (a recap if you’re new: I blogged before at www.tinkererofwords.wordpress.com and this is the newer + nicer place..)
The decision to move to a self-hosted blog was a long time coming. I’ve been blogging for 2 years now and yet the thought of migrating to a better platform was uh, daunting..to say the least. It’s not easy investing any amount of money because I guess when you work to improve something, it becomes all the more difficult to abandon said thing without feeling like you’re betraying it. Of course, I wasn’t EVER going to do such a horrid thing but the unexplained feeling of commitment can still be frightening. Nonetheless, this is a change I’m excited about. (WHOM I KIDDING?! I’M 923920304% THRILLED ?). It is just the sort of creative push I was looking for. An urge to work towards a, hopefully, brighter future. 🙂
Okay, now the fun stuff. I hope you’ve noticed that I’ve updated the logo and theme. The categories are all the same so far (besides subcategorising the posts tat are part of an on-going or finished series to ‘Series’). However, if you click on each of the category, you’ll notice something a lil’ cheeky that took far too long to properly configure. Please go check it out and come back to this post and I’ll wait a minute…………or if you’re too lazy/excited read ahead
Alright welcome back if you actually did as I told to do in which case please know you’re a really precious human being and the world should be cherishing you and remember to never change, K? K. ? ANYWAY. Where were we? oh yes. The cheeky thing. So ahem, the logo color changes for each category! The default one’s pink but then every category and all the posts in THAT category have got their own designated color. Kewl, no?
Here’s a basic chart to help ya’ll out:
The design process for these has been full of confusion and fun. I’m still a newbie but I’m getting the hang of photoshop and logo design and choosing the right colors like a sensible being. ? I will be sure to write a post on the process of design from the perspective of well…me (who else?!). Eh, maybe it’s something you fancy? Just let me know in the comments if any of you good cookies are interested! ☺️
But yeah, that’s all I can think of saying right now and it’s about 2:30AM which means I’m drowsy….thus I’m going to contradict the voice inside my head telling me to think of a better way to end such an important post..and just say bye. ?
‘Till next time..take cares.
