Suddenly today I'm all, this is plain! Too plain!
When I set up LG I just wanted a place to write. I chose a very basic template, because I prefer a white background, and I didn't want distractions.
Also, while I am quite proud of some of my designs on fabric (Indian flavored scarves, bags, and more scarves), when it comes to graphics, web page layout, etc, I find it really difficult. I do much better when I can pick something up and feel it and turn it around, and manipulate it physically. If I can't touch it, it's hard for me.
I can look at a site and think it's pretty, or cool, or works well, but I don't know how to come up with one. But I have colleagues who do this kind of thing on the side, who I could pay for help. I just haven't, because it hasn't been a priority.
But now I'm wondering if LG is boring? Maybe I should add color on the sides? Add a masthead at the top?
What's kept me from it, mainly, is that I have no idea what I want. None. What would be very LG? I don't know.
If you have any thoughts, I'd love to hear them. Thoughts on graphics or personality or anything that I could use to shape ideas.
