Along with the new logo, stationary and information sheets... I have been working on a new blog for painted with light. I am really pleased with how the new look is coming along.. and despite beginning work on the blog in Jan! (yes i am slow).. it is only JUST coming together now.
I like typepad for my own blog (although this one may be moving soon!) and... I do love blogs like Becker's B-School.. and the Image is found's blog.. these are not the kind of blog I was looking for.
I wanted something different to the typical .. scroll down the page and read kind of blogs. I have this blog for life blogging.. long run on sentances and too much text..LOL I didn't want that kind of blog for PWL. I also find the same old same old.. with new colours or a new kind of gallery etc.. .well.. a little .. repetitive and overdone.
I was lucky enough to have Kylie make me a customised blog. She was FABULOUS! I sent her drawings in Photoshop.. and scrambled emails and poorly thought out posts via IM and she made me exactly what I asked for...and then.... when I changed my mind.. she changed it. (repeat several times!) ... patience is certainly one of her virtues. She created exactly what I wanted, and I could not recommend her highly enough... she is a lil busy but def worth the wait.
I now have EXACTLY what I wanted! It is more than a blog - it is a photo journal. It is nice and clean/minimalist... and includes a which has a photo.. (complete with two rounded and two straight corners ;) and text.. in my font! AND.. has one post per page... just like a proper book!
I wanted it to match the website, but be a little more personal and casual. I am learning my way around wordpress and can now post really quickly. I will be able to share a favorite image from sessions and life in a matter of minutes.
We are still playing with the navigation and tweaking a few things... but you can have a sneak peek here... and you can navigate - this way... or that way :)
I have posted some pages to kick off with and look forward to sharing some new sessions in the coming weeks!!
(let me know what you think!!)
