Keep on keepin’ on…

I’m not going to lie, I think the only reason this domain is still around is based on the fact that I keep it on auto-renewal. The problem with that is I have a tendency to completely forget it’s even here. I’ve actually been blogging more on krissy.nu lately, but that’s due to all of the random personal things going on that I just need an outlet for.  I’m still working hard via AGn Designs, work has out-weighed anything I’ve wanted to do with this domain. There’s a few PSD’s put together for new themes, and I’ve even been tempted to pay someone to code them for me because I’ve been too busy working for other people. Knowing that I’m a control freak when it comes to code… that’s just not going to happen. So for now this domain will…

Times ticking down…

Things have been more than hectic lately, my biggest gripe about all of the pending work to complete is the fact that I’m  typically working in two different locations all day long. This is putting a damper on my ability to get things done by their deadlines due to the inability to just setup and go after I need to switch, it takes me a bit to get back on track due to other circumstances (not to be discussed).  Right now I’m in the process of designing an employment agencies site via wordpress for one client, a very detailed and customized mommy blog, an art portfolio and the outstanding one to trump them all I converting a rather large name company from html to wordpress. Sean and I worked to code the initial pages, but when we were given the…

Up and running!

It took about a year for me to get back up and running, but I’m happy to say that AcidGloss.net is back! The theme is up, and some content has been loaded in.  Over the course of the next couple weeks I’ll be blogging (a lot more), and hopefully able to get this domain back to where it used to be. There will be sponsored posts, but I’ll be sure to keep them limited so that it doesn’t take away from everything else.  I figured a very simple CSS design would keep everything flowing.  Eventually I’d like to turn this into more of a magazine kind of setup but for the being I’m very happy with the result and moving forward with it. The last few years took me away from the internet due to landing myself a very crappy…

Getting there…

I renewed this domain, even though I hardly use it the $9 a year to maintain it s fine by me. I couldn’t give up this domain no matter how much I really thought about it. There have been domains that I’ve lost interest in completely and just let it die – I can’t bring myself to do that here. I still haven’t started on the new template for this site so I’m going to ask something of any visitor that’s still floating around… If you happen to come across a free theme that blends well with the technology/business kind of a theme – please feel free to comment and send me a link towards it. Hell, if I like it enough I’ll even list you in the credits. I don’t have the time to float around blogs or template…

Where are you?

OK… so I haven’t kept up with things the way I’ve intended to but that’s due to the fact that lately I’m working six days a week and I’m just too tired to blog.  I have a lot of plans for this site, I just haven’t gotten around to doing them yet.  I haven’t read up on any new technology, I don’t have any ideas for new business techniques and I haven’t got the time to really sit down and write either.  I randomly jot a few ideas down but unfortunately that paperwork gets lost with the stacks of everything else that I’m working on. As far as the web hosting is concerned, I’ve completely handed that over to Sean (lepslair.com) so any questions you can take it up with him.  As far as my design business goes, I want…

Making Changes.

It’s been quite some time since I updated this template.  There are numerous plugins that do not work with the newest version of WordPress and it’s causing some trouble with a few of my sponsored links, as well as the bulk of my sidebar in general.  I’m going to spend some time fixing these problems and when that’s said and done I’m going to then begin working on a new template for this site.  I do like the general look and feel of the sidebar, this is why I’m going out of my way to fix it due to the fact that it may be recycled to the new template.  Either way there will be bits of downtime with this site over the course of the next few hours so if you show up and there’s a huge array of…

Inspration Required.

Work has been going pretty well lately, it’s proving to be a bit difficult on my inspiration though. I have the stamina to complete the tasks I have, there’s no question about that. The issue is where I’m unable to come up with ANYTHING for the new clients coming in that hasn’t been done before. I know there are some very creative people out there but it’s one of those situations where once you’ve seen it done before, you know it’s wrong to go out of your way to recreate it and then pass it off as your own. Of course, there is an exception to the rule. If a client asks you to recreate a template that they liked (paid or free, or just on someone else’s website) then you have to do what the client wants – without…

Happy August

While it’s only about 1:30 in the morning, it’s officially August.  July went by rather quickly.  I’m still in New York, I’m still searching for a job and I’m still working on straightening out my head so I can figure out exactly what I’m going to do with my life.  Numerous family members are sick, and while Sean and I have been at my father’s house this entire time, my father doesn’t seem bothered by the fact that we’ve both been here for as long as we have.  We’re hoping to figure things out as soon as possible but of course that requires some kind of a call-back from any of the positions I’ve applied for. Today was pretty busy for me.  I put in a lot of applications and I spent about six hours (straight – no breaks) working…

Moving things around…

Sean and I are in the process of moving things around. Not only are we cleaning the heck out of the office but I was also able to locate a new hosting company and I’m going to slowly transfer everything over within the next couple of weeks. I’m getting a great deal on excellent resources and there’s literally no turning back at this point. I’ve filled out my FAFSA and I’m working on getting things together for admissions at the University of Phoenix Online. I’m going for my bachelors degree and I hope to be able to bring in enough money so I can afford to complete the degree. If I had no student-aid to back me up I’d have to shell out a little over $60,000 to complete the course. Since I don’t have that to just throw around…

It’s pretty nice…

For the past three days I’ve been working pretty hard on balancing a few different clients.  I’m happy to say that a few of my bids were accepted so this month is probably going to be pretty nice – money wise.  I can’t wait to dump all of the money into the bank account so I can visually see my going up to New York at the end of June being a definite possibility.  It’s been difficult though, it’s hard to juggle so many different ideas and attempt to remember which client they’re connected to.  If it weren’t for the Stickies with my iMac I probably would have everyone completely confused.  I also have to say THANK GOD for being able to choose multiple colors with the stickies.  Each client has their own color and it makes life very easy…
