messing with website

Boy I am so relaxed between classes. I really do love doing college online, but the time crunch is so hard! I just can't keep everything up. Something has to be let go. I had forgotten what having a couple hours to myself feels like.

I've been fiddling around with my website to show off my class results (Media 111 and Media 204) and then somebody gave me the idea of Google Adsense... just for fun I submitted my site. They turned it down because they only accept finished websites. What was keeping it from being finished was mostly a state of mind and the "under construction" text on the front page. I removed the offending text, resubmitted it and they accepted it within an hour.

Then I messed with page layouts, changed all the graphics, etc... eventually just added a white content box, cleaned up the dust again and put ads beneath.

Mainly I just wanted to show you the banners I was working on. They're very pretty, so was the layout. But I went back to the Russian Flowers theme again because it's familiar and feels like home.

The biggest problem I was having with that was trying to think of what text to use!

If I get into web design my ideal client will be the type of person who knows pretty much what she wants her website to look like and I just have to accomplish it. I'm not all that creative / original designer type. I'm a problem solver! Tell me what you want, I make it happen.
