On Tuesday I made some changes to my website to improve the overall user experience.
- I cut down on how many posts will be featured on the main blog page, so you should experience faster load times. Since my posts are especially picture-heavy, I expect mobile users will see a significant improvement!
- Archived my previous blog posts organized by month as well as categories. It's hard to believe I've been blogging every Monday & Thursday for the past 5 months! While I haven't had every post ready the night before, I'm happy to say I've only truly missed one post since I started. I posted the next day of course with my regrets, and while coming up with ideas twice a week isn't always easy, I'll continue to do my best to keep posting timely & relevant content.
- I added a Speed Paint Gallery on my blog page that links to the miniatures I've painted within 4 hours over the last month. I also created a button that links specifically to blog posts about Speed Painting. Voila!
- I merged the "About Me" and "Contacts" pages. Have a question? Want to share ideas or suggest a topic for future blog posts? Feel free to drop me a line!
I have some fun news to share: I just found out I won 2nd place for my Alien Hunter on a Reaper forum contest-- awesome! It's humbling with so many talented artists out there, and I love learning new things from each one. The community I've found inspires me to keep painting. That being said, I want to take the time to sincerely thank each of you for your involvement! From brand new painters with questions to full-time professional painters sharing their tried-and-true methods, I appreciate you all-- thank you for your support and interest. As I continue to learn and grow, please don't hesitate to reach out!
In the meantime, I'll be enjoying the weekend after a very long work trip and I can't wait to paint in the comfort of my own home. As beautiful as this stormy-and-sunny drive was, I'm glad to be back.
I'll be painting and playing a little D&D 5th edition this weekend. That's right, I finally gave in. I visited a really cool bookstore that featured games & comics-- I'll write more about that next week! However, I broke down and bought this:
We'll be rolling some brand new 5e characters this Saturday. I'll let you know how it goes! Until then, have a great weekend!
