I can’t find it now, but a little while ago I read a post on World of Matticus that discussed the importance of having your own website. Not one of these free ones that simply allows you to post and a few other options, but a real, professional, stimulating, and (most importantly) unique site. Matticus, in so many words, stated that he bought webspace simply because he had to to take the craft of blogging seriously. I have to agree with him, while at the same time saying that I can take blogging seriously on a free site… but no one else will. For that reason, I am here today to tell you I am currently building a professional site with a real domain and everything! Joy!
Hell, how many failed blogs have been on wordpress? That’s not hating, but in order to be serious, I need a place that allows me to expand my creativity beyond where free blog space can put me. I know it’s like, what, three posts in? Yeah, but blogging is going to be something that I continue for a while. The fine people over at Project Lore have ads in their videos now for squarespace.com. If you haven’t seen the site, I recommend checking it out, it is absolutely mind-boggling the shit you can pull off on that site. I’m currently in the infant stages of setting up the blog the way I want it. As you can imagine, my needs for the blog are, I think, unique – so dropping a mere $7.20 a month (with using the promotion code on the PL website) will afford me everything I need to make the kind of site I crave.
With that being said, I need YOUR help! I need someone with photo-shop skillz to help me create my banner and background. I have ideas for both and already have the screencaps that I want to use. Essentially, I want this to be a professional endeavor. MSPaint Pros need not apply. After finishing the job, some sort of financial compensation will be given. (I am looking at about 25-75 dollars for both background and header) Drop me a line if interested, or if you know anyone that is.
P.s. – in case I didn’t make this clear (I didn’t) please send examples of your work. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
