There cannot be a crisis today; my schedule is already full.
Web Design, Development, Blogs, Shopping Carts — Business info and tutorials
I have been reading a lot of newsletters and blogs about design trends. One of the most noticeable is the use of White in both design and in basic white space within content. I personally like it but I’ve heard that some Decorative Painters think it’s ‘plain’. I think that because we work SO very much with color, that white seems very blah by comparison, but think about it for a minute. Often a blah background will more effectively display your colorful works of art.
Even if White is far too boring for you, maybe it’s time for a wee bit of a redesign. Think of your website in the same context of a shop window of a bricks and mortar store. If it never changed, there would be nothing new to look at. If you’ve had your website for a couple of years, chances are you are not aware of the changes, new features and updates that are currently available. Look around. Do a bit of surfing. See What’s New.
I’m quite new to blogging so I try to learn a little each day. What I learned in my limited time last week is that blogging is taking the internet by storm, and that there are many styles of blogs. There’s a plain blog, like this one, there are magazine styles, which look a lot like a newspaper layout, and photograph gallery type blogs – used mainly to display images. I only know a little about widgets but I’m getting there. 🙂 I will pass on my learning experiences to you and try to answer any questions you might have.
I’ve learned that blogs come RSS enabled – RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and you can subscribe via your browser. Of course, that’s another lesson but it’s fun learning new ways of doing things.
I have this blog set up so that you can register but be sure to use your full name as I will only be approving people I know.
