Creative Juices are Flowing

Thursday, April 18, 2013

When I first started this blog, it was because I wanted to get back into writing. I loved to write in school, and I always had this dream of becoming a writer. After graduating though, I let it all go by the wayside, and I didn't write anything for a long, long time. I don't think I realized how much I missed it until I started again, and I've been having so much fun with it!

Since I've gotten more into this whole blogging thing though, I've noticed my interest is being pulled in another direction. Something that I think I would really love to get into.

I'm talking about graphic/blog design! I love things that look pretty, and when I see some people's blogs, I am just so curious about how it was created! Not that I want to copy what anyone else has, but there are just so many cool things you can do to make your space unique.

After poking around a bit, I realized the source of most of this awesomeness is Photoshop (duh). But, you see, I can't really afford Photoshop. If I thought I was going to be able to make money off of using it, then I would invest, but that's not something I see happening anytime soon, if ever.

Luckily, I found something for poor little girls like me, and that would be pixlr. I'm sure a lot of you probably know what I'm talking about, because it is the coolest thing ever. You get the professionalism of Photoshop, with an even better price tag! In case you were wondering, that price tag is free.

I'm sure that overall, Photoshop probably runs circles around pixlr, especially in it's newer editions, but I'm really loving it anyway! There are a lot of things you can do, and I'm having a blast messing around and editing graphics. I would love to re-design the whole look of my blog to make it more custom, but there's still a lot I don't know yet. I'm definitely working on it though, and I hope to have a new look sooner rather than later.

So, if you're looking for a good place to edit photos, I would definitely recommend you check it out!

On a totally unrelated note, don't try to make boiled eggs in your microwave, or this will happen.

I wish I had read the comments section first....
