I know it has been a while since I have even written anything, I decided to take a rest, as I was tired beyond belief. I have however gotten my rest and I am going to do a small review of the 2012 year from beginning to end and give you some words of encouragement.
Well at the starting of 2012 I was in between blogs, and I was deciding whether to give up blogging all together or start a new blog. I decided to not start blogging right away, but I had various blog accounts. I started using my twitter account and soon my followers increased.
I created my wordpress.com account but was reluctant as to what I should post in it or use it for. Close to the end I started actually posting in the blog. At first I was posting funny pictures and a couple of designs, well bad Photoshop pictures
This was the original logo for sometime.
I decided to stop posting funny pictures as it felt like a chore and not enjoying at all, which reminded me of a lot of my previous blogs. I posted a couple more designs and started posting my opinion on different topics.
these are more of my designs, I liked them but I had known very little about Photoshop so there was no fancy effects and customization.
These designs were the beginning of my designs and I set out to learn as much I could about Photoshop, to try and get better at it
I continued posting my opinions but I was starting to think about expanding my blog, because it seemed one-sided and boring. I also continued my designing and started getting better at it.
These designed gave me even more inspiration to continue my designs as I realized that I loved designing. My blog had gotten very popular during this month mainly due to my designs. I also decided to add written quotes to my blog close to the end of this month.
It was my birth month but I had exams so I had to pause my blogging and make sure that I passed my exams. After exams had finished I looked into an image lightboxing code which everyone including myself was having problems with, mainly because there was no video player and adding a video player was very complicated. I also participated in a designing contest and came up with these designs, i did not win however but the winners deserved it.
I also started movie reviews, and added in the music reviews category, and started the journal / diary category before rapping up the month.
This month I hardly blogged at all, I did one design which was a fan art design and posted a couple of movie reviews.
I also did very little this month, as I went to camp and also was using this month as more or less a resting month. I did do two designs as I was trying to come up with a background/ wallpaper and also a logo that I could use as a symbol. Sadly I could not come up with a logo.
This was probably my busiest month as I did a lot of movie reviews and also a lot of designs. I decided to change from text quotes to image quotes as they were more interactive instead of the plain old text.
This is the logo I came up with for my blog and started using it on all my designs above.
This saw the official starting of my journal posts for everyday, as it served more or less to give you an insight into my daily life. I also came up with a few designs which continued the series of custom car designs/ paint jobs.
I took a break from the designing as I was behind with my movie reviews and was also contemplating whether or not I should even continue blogging. I decided to continue and I also realized that it had been a while since I had posted an image quote. Close to the end of October however my blog had a spike in views but it was nothing so I continued posting as normal.
This month was my busiest month to date with close to half of my overall blog views coming from this month. Apparently my image quotes were well received on Pinterest and in no time I saw my followers move from 0 to a little over 600 by the end of the month. I decided to come up the blog schedule which would spread my posts out through out the week so as my blog would be updated daily. I also did a couple of designs because I had gotten inspired.
These last couple of designs were inspired by a tutorial I had seen and decided to start posting tutorials like those to the blog to help aspiring or new designers like myself get better in Photoshop.
This month saw my second highest amount of views during this month, even though I had to stop posting for a while because I had exams during this month and then I had a week of work which served to tire me out further. I did come up with one design mainly because I was experiencing a block toward designing.
This was probably one of my best designs and I cannot stop looking at it.
This is the year 2012 from the way I experienced it, a lot of things were left out because I cant remember and also the date is a bit sketchy. I hope you have enjoyed the year like I have and I hope to see you in 2013, which will see the resumption of my Daily Journal. Before I leave you to go and enjoy the rest of my day Here are some of my most popular quotes of 2012.
