New Theme (Orca)
Hello again! I recently took my site offline for a few days while I changed the theme and made changes to many of the pages throughout the site.
The theme is awesome. It is called Orca, created by EckoThemes and purchased via Themeforest. I love that it is very spacious and ‘clean lined’. I wanted a design that was new, fresh and squeaky clean. I had intended to create a theme of my own the next time I wanted a change… maybe after this one.
Free WP Theme: Santa 2013
I have made a free Christmas inspired WordPress theme of Santa that is free for anyone to use. The design is rather simple (as I have not designed with WordPress for a long time), but I still wanted to share this. If you notice any problems, please let me know (preferably via email – firstname.lastname@example.org). I hope that anyone that does use it will enjoy it. *hug*
You can see a live preview of the theme or download it and use on your website?
I plan to make some more free themes, maybe even another christmassy style one as well. It was fun to make this. It was much like making an interactive illustration in a way, that people could use in a cool way.
Blog shuffling again
So I decided to shuffle things around again and now have my blog back on a self-hosted WordPress and plan on using it as a personal blog, as it has been for a long time. I was rather inspired by Liz and how honest her blog is and thought that I should really do that too. I also decided to restore all of my old blog posts (from 2003 onwards). Many of these older entries are pretty crazy, but they are mine and I shouldn’t hide from them, at least I know I have grown as a person (… hopefully).
Because I haven’t designed a website for a long time (let alone a WordPress theme) I decided to purchase one. So I brought Keilir which I think is rather awesome and should work well until I decide to make my own theme again.
I have kept the previous posts I was making of daily inspiration/creative things and moved those to moon.nu which I will still continue to work on.
There hasn’t been a lot going on at the moment, or rather nothing exciting. I am trying to deal with a lot of mental health issues, that I might address later.
This is just a quick blog to point out the fact the layout has been changed. I had actually brought a theme, then decided to use a HTML template I had made a little while ago and turn into into a WordPress theme and add some features. It’s simple, but I like it (so far). I might consider offering it for other people, but not sure if anyone would use it? :i
I have a blog post planed, mainly about reflection and what I want to be able to do in life (break free of the fear). The inspiration for it? My birthday is tomorrow and I am turning 24, feels so weird. o_0
I am working on revamping the content. So far I have fixed About me, 50 books, domains and geek. I want to finish off the me section and get into the goodies as well. That is really bad and has a number of dead links.
I have been trying to make a new theme for the blog. I purchased a very cute image on istockphoto.com for it and I have 90% of the general structure done, I am just lacking inspiration and motivation to finish it. _x
I have been lacking motivation in many areas of life at the moment, I hope to fix this (and kick myself up the bum) soon. 4_4
Dad went into hospital again, he seems to be doing okay, but it may take a few days before he is home again. It really puts your mind into trauma/shock when someone you love gets sick and taken into the hospital many times. I know I am not the only one.
My Mac should be shipped tomorrow. I hope hope hope! 3_3
