The New Transmission
As you can see, new layout. :) I don’t really like this one and it’s a bit of rubbish really. I became inspired by sticker photos, and combined it all with a scrapbook look. It doesn’t look great, but I’ll leave it up to you. I’m most proud of the navigation and the links. James helped me out with the navigation idea. It looked absolutely terrible before.
I got the background from Noctua-graphics from a Google search. I wasn’t originally going to use the woodgrain but then I remembered someone mentioning that woodgrain works with the scrapbook look. The photos are of Lilian, me, and James. I drew on the little hearts and decorations myself. The font I used is called Pointy.
I had trouble getting the thing to work with a transparent PNG, so I hope that because the background is non-fixed, it won’t hurt your eyes or anything.
I recently switched most of the visitor section to WordPress so if you notice any glitches let me know. Also, I accidentally deleted my affiliates page so whoever was on there – sorry. I won’t be adding any more people back. I only link who I want to link from now on.
My sidebar is a big mess, I know, so if you have suggestions for me, let me know. I want to actually put a little blurb in my sidebar.
Well… speaking of cleaning things, James cut down his contact list on MSN some time ago, and told me to do so too. I thought of doing it, since I have about 300 on there. Most people on there have also changed email addresses. I deleted about twenty then gave up. But it’s a start.
I used to try and add every person in my grade on MSN. I don’t know why, but it wasn’t really the “cool” thing to do. I just thought it was handy, in case I needed to talk to these people. In other ways I guess it’s not; you get invited to mass conversations and such.
The point I’m really trying to get at is the lack of personality through MSN. Sure, I talk to close friends like James and Lilian and some of my online buddies. Every now and then I add another person I know online, or don’t know too well – but the fact is that I know them.
I don’t like it when people annoy me when my status is on “busy” or “away” – but I’ve ranted long and hard about that, and I want to move on to something slightly different.
Making conversation. It’s what you do, naturally. But isn’t it weird when you get a little conversation that goes like this:
You: Hi. :)
Person: How are you?
Person: Haha cool.
The conversation ends. /hmph Look, I don’t mind you talking to me, but if you’re going to ask how I am, thank you for asking. But if we’re going to have a conversation like that, it’s a little bit strange.
And kind of annoying. Please don’t say “hi” if you don’t plan on talking about anything. It’s really weird. @_@
