Where is this heading

If I ever wanted to blog professionally, I’m pretty sure all thoughts and considerations have been shot to hell.  I’ve learned so much about myself just from creating a header, it’s actually ridiculous.  I’ve always known that I’m an indecisive person, but after this I now know why I have commitment issues with every aspect of my life.  The fact that I had to change the entire layout of my blog just to fit/match/coincide with my header is beyond me.  My sincere apologies- especially to myself- to those who liked my previous layout (which was my absolute favorite) because I had to change it so my entire header would fit and not be a cropped version.  Don’t get too comfortable with this one either, no promises that it’ll still be here next time.  Who knows the next task might have to force me to redesign the entire thing again…

Other than my horrible indecisiveness and my inability to commit to anything, I’m also really bad at working the internet.  I honestly couldn’t figure out Pixlr for the life of me.  I feel like it’s unnecessarily difficult for no reason, I don’t know maybe it’s just me.  I ultimately just picked the original picture I had for my previous header because I really liked it and was upset that I had to make another one, so I decided to combine it with a the New York skyline because that’s where the show takes place.  After figuring out how to add a separate layer, which took maybe about 20 minutes because I’m just that clueless, I started playing around with all the buttons I really had no idea what they meant.  I tried to resize a bunch of times, still don’t know if I did it right.  And I pretty much just ended up with this effect that I have now and I probably couldn’t even tell you what I did to get here.

I feel like this was a very cynical sounding post, but only because this was a frustrating experience for me.  I promise I’m not always this miserable.  I really do like the outcome of my picture, even though it looks kind of weird stretch out and expanded but whatever.  I really do hope that I don’t have to change my entire layout again so cross your fingers!!

Blogging 101

 

 

 

ImageThere’s been so much hype lately, figured I might as well join everyone else in making one of these.  I feel as if there’s always a weird connotation or vibe when someone says they have a blog or “blogging”.  Like, if someone were asked what they were up to that day and they responded with, “Oh, nothing.  Just blogging.”  One would either assume they’re way self absorbed and full of themselves or they have no social skills and hate going outside and/or seeing people so they just stay indoors all day to avoid physical contact.  Which may be true for some people, but hey, I’m not judging.  I find it a great way to express someone’s inner most thoughts with the anonymity of being on the internet, blah blah blah.  I mean, Hannah has one to express her feelings and to write down stories for her memoir, so really how bad can these actually be?  Blogging is the new thing, right?  But contrary to popular belief, it isn’t as easy as it seems.  People blog all the time making it look so simple, but I was having trouble just getting started with this thing.

Creating this was the most stressful experience.  I spent more time than I would have liked just picking out what freaking theme to use- I’m pretty sure I sampled every sample theme this site has to offer.  Kind of frustrating that the blog only allows you to change certain things but other parts of the theme are fixed and can’t be changed.  What if my font doesn’t match my background?  What if I want to add my own header picture?  Guess I’m just shit out of luck :/

Other than me being a perfectionist when it comes to this stuff, who actually has witty/funny thoughts or even anything to say for that matter all the time?  I guess once I start getting the hang out of it these thoughts and feelings will just come to me naturally, but until then I feel kind of strange kind of just sitting here and virtually talking to myself in head to no one in particular.. But I’m keeping an open mind and taking advice from Hannah as she once said, “The worst stuff you say sounds better than the best stuff that some other people say.”
