I like to mess around with designing websites sometimes. I would love to work with a stallion owner, setting up a website and promoting him...maybe someday, I just do not know anyone who needs it right now. I also do photo editing and whatever else.
Here is what I have done so far:
I have designed Highland Grove Farm, a website for our farm. It has information about our farm and animals. I have quite a few pictures on it for interested parties to see. I made this website to be really simple and easy to use. It is basic HTML with no CSS style sheet.
I also designed Olson Quarter Horses, for a horse breeder. I actually recently changed this in Spring 2011, I used to have it as a website hosted on 110mb.com, but I felt their service was declining greatly as often times the page would come up "page could not be found" and it was going slower than when I originally put it up. So I did the website on blogger. Yes, blogger and it seems to be working quite well and looks quite nice. I am happy with the results and I think it is easier to navigate for people coming to visit.
So, you guys can go and look at them if you like, and maybe give me your opinions. Lately I have been itching to build some more websites, but I am not sure who needs them. I have also got creative with other forms of design, such as the link to my website images, making business cards and messing with photos so that they could be used for advertising, like in a magazine or on the web.
All Around Horses (my blog/website)
I decided I was not happy with the templates for blogs out there, even the ones on external websites that you can upload to blogger. I have tried wordpress.com and I do not like it. I have not tried wordpress.org but I may someday if my blog gets big enough for it to be worthwhile. The reason I finally changed my blog was because I was really unhappy with the loading speed of the template I had before this. I liked it otherwise.
Not Quite a Hobby Farm
I made a background and chagned some of the elements and post width ect. I am really happy with how it turned out.
For doing the blog editing, I was glad to find some great websites that had tutorials and information on how to edit the HTML code of the blog. They were:
The Cutest Blog on the Block
I have thought about writing up tutorials on some of the things I have done on my blog, but this is an equestrian blog, not a design blog, so this is all for now. The websites mentioned above have great resources anyways and for now I think I will leave it to them.
