Making this an actual website.

I’d love to provide before & after photos but I’ve been working on certain parts of this website over the last few months and never took photos before.

So the first thing I noticed was that my banner photo looked fine when viewed in 1920 pixel width on a computer (90% of website traffic). But when viewed vertically on a cellphone it looked weird. My title also acted weird. A few weeks ago I changed it to a fan art photo of one of my favorite shows;the artist posted the vector image for free use so i used it also. It loos like this now:

Another thing I did to the site was make the 1st page an empty title page, sorta like a sticky. I did this when I first designed the website. I did this so after the title and banner there’s a white divider then it shows my posts. as you can see by the first photo in this post. To me it looks like this:
80903f8cb9fc80e72b7feb9bf37d723c
It has an edit option cause it’s technically a title card. It bothers me but only I can see it. This site is also set to go to that title card when first visited at http://www.villaindiv.com or when clicking the banner. this way you end up navigating exactly where I want you to.

In the sidebar on the right there is a better navigation center, I took out all the useless options that litterally noby will ever use

Another thing I do to every post is disable sharing options because I feel as small as my viewership is at the moment, it isn’t worth the bulk at the bottom of my page. I also categorize everything. I oddly send links to people often. I never realized that having a place to host my ideas or explanations for things would be so nice. In the future , when my year licence runs out on this domain ill probably move it over to square space. I’m not a big fan of WordPress but it is really easy so ill give it that.

I feel like the end of my page is totally out of order but it isn’t something I’m allowed to change.
Current order:

  1. an ad(seriously?)
  2. reblog/like
  3. related
  4. previous/next post
  5. leave a reply
  6. recent posts.

This makes no sense. It should be

  1. leave a reply
  2. like/reblog
  3. previous/next post
  4. related
  5. recent

This way it’s more intuitive and makes sense.

Another thing I never do is post a photo to the side of words. It looks okay on a computer but the second you are on mobile you get this weird text problem. The photo takes priority and the words get cut off or split and that’s annoying.

I know I cuss and stuff in my blog. I know some individuals may not like that. I’m sorry. I however have never worked in a professional place where I can’t cuss talking to coworkers and stuff. I understand not cussing around customers but I have no desire to work at a place where I cannot use my normal vocabulary. (lol double negative) . A lot of my blog is inspired by the devblog by on http://www.playrust.com . He talks to you like he is talking to YOU. It’s personal, its perfect. He uses a lot of photos and he isn’t afraid of telling his opinion.

The biggest thing that annoys me is that there are like 8 color options for my accents. All links on this page and all buttons at the bottom of this page are some weird ass salmon color. 8 “free” colors not containing a purple but containing 3 different versions of puke green? awesome.

I also assume there’s an ad at the bottom of my page.

Remember my post about my Serverus 1.0? I suppose I can host my website on it myself. Thanks for viewing guys :)
