Disclaimer: I've grown up a bit and learned a lot since this blog was started. In the beginning I took tips from the likes of John Chow and Shoemoney and tried to write titles and content for Digg and Reddit. In the end it didn't do me much good and most of it just seems silly looking back. If you're interested anyway, here's what I wrote back then, but take it with a grain of salt.
Ah, creativity. As always, I’m in search of a muse. Now I have a rather plain looking website just begging for some style. I’m moderately happy with the markup, and I feel comfortable enough with WordPress’ theming capabilities that I’m ready start making this site look like something. The problem is what?
I’m a t-shirt and jeans type of guy, so it can’t be too formal. Musically, I’m punk-rock influenced with a touch of emo and an appreciation for the classic rock and jazz of the non-smooth variety, and I’ve been known to let my musical influences define me, which makes me think grunge may be the way to go. I’m 100% Web 2.0, so a little bit of shine is a must, but not so much to be cliche.
What does that leave me with? I don’t know. I guess it’s off to Smashing Magazine for some ideas.
