Text: Hello everyone! Happy New Year!
I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still alive. I'm working on a new project which I find very exciting and takes up the little bit of freetime that I have every day at the moment. Once I finish that project I will work on an easter pixel set and other graphic updates for this website here. I will link that project on the intro page when it's finished as well so you can check it out.
If you visit my blog too you probably know that I already made a spring layout for ARW. I would love to already use that layout, especially because many of my affies have a new layout too. But it's still way to early for a spring layout, so I will hold back for now. I might have to fix something about it anyway. I think I want to display the listings different this time, but I'm not sure how yet.
On saturday I also received bad news. My colleague has the Corona virus. We all had to get tested today. We will get the results on wednesday. I'm really nervous what the results will be and didn't sleep much because of that (almost falling asleep while writing this ). Sadly our employer insisted that we still work in the company instead of from home before. Now that someone is infected we are allowed to switch to home office... I wore a mask and washed my hands religiously all the time so maybe I didn't catch it. Let's hope for the best. I hope you all are safe and healthy.
I wish you all a great evening!
Text: Hey everyone,
I finally get to write an update post now. It's been some stressful days since the last one. I had to get a lot of stuff done before christmas and work was very stressful too. Somehow the customers are crazy this year. Probably because COVID19 is getting worse now that it's winter time.
Maybe you noticed some changes here on A Random Website in the last few days. Whenever I managed to work on the website or got stuff done for it I uploaded whatever I had just finished. For example I've placed two boxes below the navigation and moved the affiliates and listings there. I think they looked out of place before. Now they have their own spot. And I finally managed to pixel some smilies, yay. I also created a Christmas & New Year's pixel set. The set took me a while but it looks better than I thought it would. Especially the chistmas tree and the mistletoe gave me a hard time.
Here is a little overview of the upadate:
- Christmas & New Year's pixel set (12 items)
- Smiley set "Pink dot" (10 items)
- Smiley set "Green dot" (10 items)
- Smiley set "Yellow dot" (10 items)
- Smiley set "Blue dot" (10 items)
I'm totally worn out at the moment and feel a little sick. I have to work a few more days around christmas and new year so I think I will use the holidays to relax. So I think this might be the last update for this year.
I wish you all a merry christmas and a happy new year. Stay healthy everonye!
Text: Hey guys, I have a little update today. I made the layout lighter because it was barely possible to read the texts on lower display lighting on most mobile devices that I checked. Only if you set it to an unhealthy level. You also couldn't really tell the difference between the shades of some parts of the layout. Now you can at least read the texts and see a little difference. :) (You might have to clear your cache to see the changes.) When I started webdesign over a decade ago I didn't have these problems because not many people used smartphones to surf the internet yet, haha.
I also had to replace the forms because the provider blocked them. I somehow overlooked that they were only free for 30 days, oops! I will have to replace them on my new website at some point too, but creating forms on the old provider was soo difficult so I'll keep them a few more days because I don't want the effort to be in vain.
Which leads me to the next topic: I spent the last weekend creating a blog & link collection site. :) I have so many ideas for websites at the moment. The new site is nothing special and very small. I tried to make the layout winterly and looking at it now it makes me freeze even more in my room so I guess it worked. :D It's an anime layout as well. I'm looking forward to make more of these. I already have an idea for another website. I think I will make a fanlisting or fansite for an anime / anime character. But I also really want to create christmas related pixels for this website here.
By the way, the last message that I received before the forms were blocked was an affi request from Kouyou Design. Luckily the message was still transmitted to me. It would have been sad to miss out on such a cute affi. *_* So if anyone else submitted a form on 6th or 7th of December it is possible that I didn't receive it. Please send it again if you didn't receive an answer from me till 8th of December.
That's everything for today. I wish everyone a nice day. :)
PS: I need to pixel myself some smilies. :D
Text: Hello everyone! Got new uploads! :)
- 2 icons
- 9 icon textures
- 1 texture
- 1 layout
I also added the affiliates to the layout. Since many sites link them on their layout where they are visible at any time I thought it's only fair if I do that too.
I would like to mention my two new cute affiliates Snow Drops and Sleety as well. Visit their sites!
That's all for today. I'm very tired and will go to bed now.
Good night, your random webmiss :)
Text: Good evening everyone! Today I have a huge update for you. You surely already noticed the new layout. ;) As planned it's a divider type layout this time which looks a little more accurate on mobile devices. Aaand we also have someone on the header: the girl is my Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet character. What bothers me is that she doesn't have her "natural" hair colour there. The effect made her hair a lot darker and more red than it really is. You can see the original hair colour on my icon on the left. But I thought the effect that I added to the header gave it a cooler atmosphere. It looks like she just won a battle during night time and the "particles" of that person are flying around. If you watched the Anime Sword Art Online you probably know what I mean. :) I think the bullet that I pixeled for the seperation-line also looks a bit funny... *cough* oh well. But the colours remind me of Ren from Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online.
What else is new?
- Added an "About" page with information about the website and me
- Added new resource categories "icon textures" and "textures"
- Uploaded 4 icon textures
- Uploaded 2 textures
- Added 2 more buttons in "link exchange" which can be used to link my website
- Split the "photography" page into two for faster loading
Since I create most of the textures that I use myself anyway I thought I might as well upload some of them here. :) I would also like to mention the first affiliate: Heartbliss. Thanks for the request!
That's everything for today. I hope you all like the update.
Best regards, the webmiss
Text: Hello everyone! I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Halloween! Unfortunately we can't have Halloween parties today because of the whole COVID19 situation, but I'm trying to make the best out of it. I decorated my home Halloween-like and listen to some spooky music. To celebrate this day I uploaded the first free layout. I hope you like it. I'm totally in love with it. Okay I think I'll check out what Animal Crossing New Horizons has to offer today now.
Have a spooky evening! Best regards, the webmiss
Text: Hello everyone! I just noticed that the current layout is not compatible with mobile devices. I'm no professional at website coding, but it seems the problem is caused by the table commands. I tried to find a solution for that but I couldn't find one. I will keep the layout how it is till the Halloween season is over and try a divider type layout next as these seem to be less problematic.
Have a nice day! Best regards, the webmiss
Text: Hello and welcome to my little website which just went online today! Starting here with a nice and simple Halloween themed layout. It was my first time making a table layout, the code is probably a mess. But I think the outcome doesn't look too bad. I kept it simple on purpose for starters. We will see what the next layouts will be like. I might do something more elaborate at some point. This website is going to be a creative outlet for me. I used to do a lot of creative things like webdesign about a decade ago and would like to get back to it because it is a passion of mine. The reason I stopped being creative was because I entered worklife which resulted in me having not enough energy left for that. But I'm trying to find some time and energy for that now because I really missed doing something creative. I already filled a few pages with some graphics. Here's what can be found so far:
- 3 Icons
- Halloween themed pixel set (10 items)
- 16 photos
You might notice that I'm trying to use as many self-made recources as possible. For example all graphics you can find here so far are made with photos that were taken by me. I'm not sure if I will stick to that though, because unfortunately I still don't have much time and don't know if I can take new photos etc. very often. I also have a passion for anime and would love to make some anime related graphics. We will see what the time brings.
Best regards, the webmiss
