Random thoughts and plans
Now that my site has been revamped massively in some way for the third time, I'm going to pour my thoughts out about what I want to do with the website.
The site theme
I like the Hypercard theming, but the background dither has to go. It's borderline strobey at times. I'm doing that right now.
Secondly, I think I'm gonna center the theme a little more. Putting it off to the side is annoying me a bit. I'm doing that eventually.*
Thirdly, I need to do the mobile theme. That comes even later.
Fourthly, I might want to redo the theme entirely? While I love the "old MACOS" aesthetic, the grayscale isn't really fitting for me, I think. I would like a more colorful theme and the hypercard thing is sort of holding me back here. I might also make it a more open theme instead of being such a tight container theme.
I might give different sections of the site individual themes, like the blog theme being more blog-like in appearance.
The site content
I would like to get into the habit of writing down SPAWO lore instead of sitting around waiting for it to be written. I have some templates I've been putting together for organizing character lore, and it's been awesome working with my friend Pavizi on that.
I would also like to use my blog a little more, especially making resources.
I might drop the full grammar thing because this is actively straining to write for extended periods of time, especially since my keyboard is breaking pretty terribly. I would love to avoid typos too, but I might have to compromise. In the future you might see my unfiltered thoughts typos and all.
I might add a Gallery section for my art. I rarely make complete things, but it would be good for archival.
I would like to set up a portfolio of my creative and tech works too. IRL pressure is mounting on me steadily and I will NEED to get a job. Ideally I would like a tech-related job, but in the meantime I would also like to do art commissions on the side, and I would like to have examples ready for those.
The Blog section needs a lot of spice, I think. I might add a comment section and/or a shoutbox to the site somewhere, and maybe the ability to add polls. They added polls to Tumblr recently and they are so good.
Some contact information. I would like a way to talk to readers.
I would like this place to be presentable. There are a lot of places I don't feel comfortable linking my site to directly and proudly claiming it as mine.
