He also wants me to design him a logo. I know nothing about logo making and I have not studied a damn thing about graphic design other than some reading on the internet and some things that I've pinned on Pinterest. I don't think I'm qualified for the job but I'm flattered that he thinks I am. (I don't know if he actually thinks I am or if I'm his only option, hehe).
If I've learned anything throughout this experience, it's that designing websites/graphic design isn't something that I want to do with my life. Funny though, because when I was graduating high school it was a path I was considering. Glad I didn't follow through with that!
Anyway, the process has somehow inspired me to do some revamping of my own. I found this article, titled "How to Make Your Blogger Blog Not Look Like A, Um, Blogger Blog" and even though some of the tips are subtle, they do make a difference! I didn't realize getting rid of the Blogger navbar at the top of my page would make such a difference, but it did!
So, hats of to all of you website and graphic designers. I don't see how you put up with the demanding clients constantly changing their minds and acting like you have nothing else to do in your life *glares at boyfriend*. It's fine though, I'm happy to be part of his website!
