milliebot website up and running!

I did it, I finally finished enough of my website to launch it! I am so excited. It feels amazing to actually have a website for myself that I designed, rather than a simple blog. Woo! Of course, there are still tweaks that need to be made, but it’s functional for now!



I’ve been side-tracked from my own website because I’ve been working on a website for a DJ that we know.

Nothing is finalized at the moment, but hopefully he will like the color scheme and header (I know I do!) Nothing crazy for the layout, just a clean, simple design that gets his information across. I am obsessed with rollover images, so I am having a lot of fun with those right now.

I am planning on getting my site up and running within the next week or two. It’s not fully finished, but I have enough to get it out there. Basically I just need to finish resizing and saving my artwork for the web. I don’t want that tedious work to keep me from actually having a real website up and running, so I’m going to do something about that soon. Plus, having my site up will keep me motivated to continue uploading my images.

So I’ve been working really hard on my website lately. I’ve got the general layout done, and now I am figuring out what projects are going to be featured and optimizing the pictures for the web. I’ve still got a ton of work ahead of me, but I started in the easiest place, which was the photography page. I’ve got that all finalized, and with some Javascript (which I am going to work on learning), I’ve got a gallery that looks just the way I want it to.

When you click on a thumbnail, a window expands to show the full image, and from there you can browse left or right through the entire gallery on that page. Yay for Javascript!

Now I just need to work on photographing something other than flowers/nature. Feel free to volunteer as a portrait test subject. ;]
