When you already work in a field that requires you to stare at a computer screen for 8-10 hours a day, it probably seems slightly insane to then go home and stare at another computer screen for a few more hours. I have had many online journals and blogs in the past —GreatestJournal (A LiveJournal clone that sadly is now defunct), Blogger, etc. I was determined to finally step up and have my own domain on WP. org, and now I do. It’s been a learning process, for sure. I wasn’t sure what to do with my logo; I ended up drawing the eye and crown myself and putting it over the i, which I think doesn’t look too bad. I went to bed last night with my eyes bloodshot and burning and stinging, and I still wasn’t pleased with the layout. However, this morning, fueled by coffee and rested eyes, I found a theme I liked and I am quite happy with my blog. I may pony up the money to get the full version of this theme, but for a free one, I like it. It’s clean and simple, which is what I was after.
I think anyone who has even a drop of creativity in them knows the feeling of constantly thinking about a project, the restlessness that settles into you until it’s done, or done for now. You always look at what you made, thinking, “Well, it’s almost right, but what if this was like this?” or, “Maybe I should just redo the whole thing.”
Today, I will settle for things looking right for now.
