The Birth of Some Icons

So you're back then? Great, I was hoping you would be, as I've been making icons for you and finalising my Blog layout. Actually I've been doing that for the past few weeks - I'm getting waaay better at this.

Anyway, I mentioned last time about there being some changes to the layout of the Blog. My posts are now going to be laid out in a certain way. Instead of waffling on for paragraphs about it, I'm going to let the pictures do the talking. Then I'm going to talk a little bit anyway.

Features - You remember the posts that came in groups and took forever? Those were my
features, and they're back. And this time it's personal (no really, it is; I write them myself about personally chosen topics). All joking aside, there will be features and many more of them. On my side this time I have several contributors, all of whom can be found in my new look links bar (see "You Should Read These") from photographers to musicians.

Yeah, I'm not getting rid of these. As a woman I reserve the right to rant and rant until the day ends, and then come online and do it some more. Let's face it: you seem to like them, I haven't got in trouble yet and I quite enjoy getting my teeth into something now and again (HUR HUR HUR). Plus there's plenty of things out there in the great wide world that sometimes make me want to explode and spew molten loony all over the place, and I would really like to not do that.

You may have noticed that these things are crappily rendered in MS Paint. While that may be true, nothing will tarnish the love and care that went into these. At the very least they convey what they're meant to, so I'm quite happy with them. The little one on the top is a Media review. That denotes anything that can be seen, listened to, watched or played. And its little brother on the bottom there means that the post will be a product review (see the little handbag? I have an A Level in Graphic Design, damn it). As this is a blog aimed mainly at women, it is most likely to be an item of cosmetics, perfume, maybe a ladies' brand such as Bravissimo or No7. I like to think I am more than fair to you guys, so you can just ignore these (although please try and read them; they might help if you have a girlfriend you like to buy treats for, or they might just debunk a few myths and mysteries).

So there you have it. Also, for those of you on Facebook, why not become a fan of us there: don't act like you're too discerning, I've seen you liking "The Original Power Rangers".

Happy reading!
