I started the 365 Pictures Project and here is my picture for day 1. Look at my progress as the blogs go by or if I don’t update my blog everyday, just go to my Fotolog(CLICK HERE). Here is the Day 1 Picture:
Its a few buildings near my house and I felt like it was an amazing angle. You can’t really tell where I’m looking from.
Before getting into my fabulous idea, I would like to say I hope all of you had a great holiday, and I hope everyone is safe.
Now, onto my great idea: this is probably going to seem lame because great and fabulous are not two adjectives that would probably have been attributed to this idea if I say it out loud, or if you just read it here and now, but I think it is sort of smart. Considering I am limited to pre-made wordpress themes that come along with a free blog, as well as the limitation of editing CSS and header images for certain layouts, I feel very restricted and unable to express my creativity and knowledge on web and graphic design. I want to learn more and more about the codes that bring a layout, or in this case a wordpress theme, to life, as well as grow in the ability to create masterpieces with photoshop. Seeing that I cannot show my creativity by the limitations a free blog brings, I may be considering renewing my hosted space from my domain, but changing the name to something more secretive so that my identity stays hidden. As much as I hate paying for space, as well as a domain name, I feel I would be happier with the freedom that paid space brings.
As less stressful as it is to just not worry about coding that works, and a graphic that plays well with what I want to show the world wide web, I still want to use my creative juices for this world, and not forget what I know.
I have owned a few domains for the past maybe, five years? And every time I would get a new domain, some time would have passed in between each domain, and I would forget a lot that I know. I don’t want that to ever happen again because, instead of renewing and reminding myself how certain codes work, and how certain images can be made, I want to learn even more than I can remember.
I don’t want to float on my already taught knowledge, I want to swim to greater pastures of html, php, c++, and graphic bedazzling. <–Corny eh? Yeah I don’t know why I just wrote that in such a cliche and metaphorical way, but it explains greatly how I feel.
Anyways, right now I am going to comment people back, and then go to sleep. It’s already 4am where I live so I better hurry because I cannot deprive myself from sleep on vacation, that is just wrong.
Night all! (Good morning in other time zones! =])
I’m getting a lot better at my instrument so I’ll be posting audio clips of me playing it really soon and until I decide whether or not renew web space and buy a new domain, I will be using my creative juices by making you guys wordpress themes, and I will gladly do them by request if need be. =]
