Hello there :)

Angela I'm Angela. I've been blogging on and off, but I've always been around. I like rambling about anything that strikes my fancy, be it personal endeavors, geeky pursuits, books I'm reading, writing attempts, occasional travel, and the games I play.

 

Blogging

My blogging here is rather sporadic, something which I’m quite sad about. One reason for that is probably that I’ve grown disenchanted (again) with my layout, for all that I loved it when it was new. I’m still trying to come up with a new layout, but it isn’t easy.

I’m trying to get more into blogging, though, and I’m sure as soon as I actually decide on a new, better, more readable layout for Seasonal Plume I’ll be back in the game. (I’m actually thinking of going so far as just downloading a theme and using it… I’m trying to resist, though.) However, I do have two new “blog projects”.

The first is Frontend Friday, over at my tech blog, where I talk about various things related to frontend stuff: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and other frontend issues. I’m still trying to feel around as to what topics are interesting, so feel free to suggest.

The second is I’ve just accepted an invite from Tech Blog Philippines to be a contributor, and in time you should see a couple of posts from me on there, probably revolving mostly on things I find interesting but wouldn’t exactly fall in the realm of what’s “bloggable” in Indiscripts–I’m sure there will be some overlap, but not by much.

As for creative writing…I’ve fallen into a funk again. Sigh.

  • @Julie:

    Over the years (!) I’ve tried all kinds of things that I thought would enhance UX, like sidebar on the bottom, blogroll tucked away on a separate page, just one post per page, etc. etc. At last I’ve come “full circle” — a very traditional layout — and I swear my traffic has increased because of it.

    I wouldn’t know about the increased traffic, but I’ve been through that, too! I’ve been experimenting a lot with different layout types for this blog more than the rest, but I’ve ended up going with the traditional layout as well. I suppose there IS a reason why most blogs have this sort of setup!

    @Court: Thank you! I was wondering if FF was useful at all to whoever reads my tech blog, so I’m glad it’s good for you! Y! is certainly teaching me a lot of things, for sure. As for a design blog–you should start one! :D (…says the girl who can’t seem to keep up with blogging, lol)

  • Wanted to let you know that I’ve been quite enjoying Frontend Friday – especially this past week’s one! Never thought about using one large background image quite like that for a navigation menu, but it makes a lot of sense. Will definitely be keeping that in mind in the future. :) Have been debating starting my own design blog, but can’t quite make up my mind about that or not… Hmm.

  • I really like your current design, but believe me I know how a new one can revive one’s interest in blogging! Over the years (!) I’ve tried all kinds of things that I thought would enhance UX, like sidebar on the bottom, blogroll tucked away on a separate page, just one post per page, etc. etc. At last I’ve come “full circle” — a very traditional layout — and I swear my traffic has increased because of it. And of course, my blogging inspiration has increased too.

    And now… I’m off to check out Frontend Friday. :)
