So I’ve been working on the Gallery most of the day and I’ve simply fallen in love with the simple design and admin of Zenphoto. I’ve gotten most of my theme done. It’s obvious I need to skin a whole bunch of the pages before I’m done and fix a lot of colors but I’m adding the link to my blog here. It is simply divine. I love dynamicness of it all! Really I find the default theme far better then most galleries I have used. If you have a site and are looking for a nice stand alone gallery please go for this one! Check out mine to see how nice it is.
Skinning is PHP and HTML heavy in the same way that WP is so if you use WP Zenphoto isn’t much different.
Unfortunately my headache has me buckled in for the night. I’m probably going to bed early. Have a good night every. <3 ya!
Alright! So I wanted a Photo-Gallery to put pictures, organize them and all that jazz. I have found a very nice one I think. It is called Zenphoto. It looks really nice and it has a layout that I think I can mess with adequately. I am going to install it here in a little while and see how I like it. From the demo I think it is going to be perfect! It looks very clean and exactly what I want. It will take some effort on my part because I like to text my pictures and its difficult to find a software that will do that but it’s okay. I will have fun doing it I’m sure. ^_^
Since I’m uploading the gallery today I will be working on the layout so the splash page is being postponed. Not that bad because I still have to make all of the icons for the splash page so that means I have to figure out which ones I want to link to on my Spalash page. Most likely all of my links here on the right will be added.
Coming soon!! I am going to be making my pages of, Reasons why I love my friends, and I will also be adding some of my favorite site that I like to frequent. Soon you should be seeing Links to DA, Twitter and Facebook appear as image links.
I would also like to apologize for the ads but maintaining so many websites is getting a bit overwhelming financially so I’m hoping it will help offset the cost a little. I <3 you guys. Now time to make lunch, spend time with my chicklins and then put them down for a nap. After that I might be able to work on the Zenphoto gallery. ^_^
Today was filled with cleaning and being a little upset. I guess I just find things unfair when you expect certain leisures to be reciprocated but they aren’t. Le sigh. I’m just a bit on the grouchy side. I’m trying to find a Yoga tape or something I can do with my kids in the morning. I think if I do some exercise I might feel better and not be so grouchy all of the time. It’s a hope and I think it would help me lose a bit more of that weight that I’d like to lose. Really I wish I could find my Wii Fit disc and all of my cords and things that miraculously disappeared – which I’m very upset about, Wii-motes are not cheap – and get my Wii up and running. I really adore the Wii Fit game as I am able to concentrate and I really find it relaxing. Maybe I’ll just give in and when I get a job, buy a new one. If I ever get a job. 🙁
I sent a few pictures to TwitPic today. The one of me – or half of me as it were – was taken by my daughter Fae. The rest were random ones, some I took a few weeks ago, The eyeball ones I took today. 😀 I think – if I can convince my mum to pay for the development of the pictures and the Digital disc – that I would like to take all new pictures of Fae and Troy for the Faerie-Reverie site. I am still working on MM, I’m actually in process of making animated gifs for my splash page. I am looking for a nice gallery software, if anyone has suggestions I would love any. I would like to be able to easily skin it and feature pictures. I would mostly be putting pictures of me and my kids and then any art-work that I post on dA.
Well I love everybody. I hope you are having a fantastic day! <3
So last night, after my children went to bed, I went to work on my main splash page for Morrigan’s Madness. I haven’t thought of all the links yet but I finished the main image and plan on making little trinket danglies that maybe spin when you hover over them. Currently the links that I know I need are one to here and one to DA. I’m thinking about making a gallery page for pictures of me and then I will need to make links for my other sites, like Faerie-Reverie, Cheesy Genius, and Wootflakes. Not sure how I want to link my brother’s and my mum’s site. I also might make a secret link that shows me naked….. j/k. I wouldn’t want to scar you guys like that.
So today’s agenda? Play with the chicklins, work on websites and clean…. Hmmmm, I think this is startingg to become a routine. Maybe I should change it up by adding in something different…. Like……. Going outside to jump in puddle with my daughter. Yus, I might just do that. ^_^
Have a good day everyone. I will update later.
Well I’m posting a mid-day update. I think I have the layout tacked down pretty well. I really like it and it appears to look good in both FF and IE! YAY!
So that being said I need to do some content updates, fix the About and Contact pages as well as adding a few others, and vuala all will be ready. I will probably be adding Google Adsense so that I can hopefully earn enough money to keep my websites going while I’m still on a job hunt. I think I will be looking into working for Census, if I can get a job there it will get me something for now.
I still have to add some links and stuff to my sidebar, specifically to sites like, Twitter, DeviantArt, Facebook, a Gallery for pictures of me, my main site and I think that would be it. So look for those links!!
Maybe I’ll put up a poll to choose my next site to work on and complete. Which would you guys think? Wootflakes, CheesyGenius, Faerie-Reverie, CorruptedCarousel, Dragonheart-Costumes, or another page for Morrigan’s Madness? Comment or tweet me @captainmorrigan
So I started this up tonight and hopefully I won’t lose momentum and stop doing it. I have a lot of websites to get done and I’ve been neglecting them for months. I really just need to get my pansy ass in gear and finish them. I need to create a banner and layout for My brothers site, My daughters site, My Mom’s site and 3 of my own sites. I have so much stuff to do and yet I don’t do it though I’m sure I could get it done in less then a week if I put my mind to it.
On that note I’m also going to try and bunker down, get my books read and find a job. I’ve been looking, like a mad-woman, but still nothing. T_T It’s so depressing that I can’t find anything with my decent amount of computer skills. I mean the least I could do is maybe get a job tutoring people on how to use their computers since I’m pretty crafty like that. So if you need a computer tutor please contact me. >_> I have to make a living somehow.
I’d appreciate if you are looking at the site to tell me what you think of the layout. I got the idea from a free WordPress layout but I did all of the images and stuff by myself. There are a few graphics and brushes that I don’t have the original authors site to anymore so please let me know if you know where to find the links to the sites for anything missing a credit.
Soon to come still will be a completely finished layout. More pages. More Links. Links to my other sites with images…. Fantastic more stuff. I don’t want to list it because I think having a goal sometimes feels foreboding so I never finish things.
Once I get Morrigan’s Madness complete I will work on my other sites so stay tuned!!
