Chris helped me re-do the old blog. Here is his funny play by play below. :)
When my wife said she wanted a new blog design I knew it would be like most projects. She would give several ambiguous directions and then shoot down my feeble attempts to please her. I feel it's a common strategy for women.
After looking at a few of my ideas, she decided go to a lady on Etsy. Bullet dodged. Or so I thought.
The etsy lady merely emailed directions for a blog design...what? That's like me ordering a cheeseburger and someone sending me the recipe. That's a lot of stuff to do. If I wanted to workout, I'd go to the gym.
So, I was back working for Holly...on a day she didn't get 12 hours of sleep which only adds to the pressure. Ha
Luckily, I got the updates done pretty quickly...but of course my Internet socialite wife wanted other things done that she had seen on other blogs. We've got to keep up with other ladies taking pictures of food or we will be a laughing stock. (don't get me started on the non-HD Vlog. Apparently I am supposed to hire Tim Burton for all future times my wife wants to make a video talking about shoes and candy.)
The blog design conversation went like this:
Holly- make it look like this blog.
Chris-ok what picture do you want me to use?
Holly- I don't know something cute.
Chris- I don't know what that means. What do you want the text to say?
Holly- I don't know. This is hard.
(Then I show her what I made based on those instructions.)
Holly- No, I don't like that.
I felt like the nerdy high schooler tutoring a jock..."Yeah, I don't care about the equation, I just want this homework done."
But, this experience brings me to the conclusion that I could "design" blogs professionally if that means sending a Word document with instructions...so I will do that.
