Site updates

With the recent events unfolding in Japan I took some time off from blogging in respect for Japan. But in my blog’s down time I decided to do some behind the scenes work on my blog and give it a few updates.

The first update being the navigation menu. I don’t know if anyone remembers, but the old layout of my blog had links on the top of the blog to click to home, about, and contact. But after I switched to my new layout for some reason the code didn’t take with the new layout and automatically created a links section on my side bar. Since the links section worked just as well, I didn’t really feel like messing with it at the time. Instead I always kept in mind that I needed to fix it. Of course I always put it off because I am terrible at HTML, and I have to find a premade HTML code. But it’s extremely difficult to find I premade code that is actually nice looking, and that I can easily manipulate. But I finally found one that matched my layout and was fairly easy to adjust the colors. Also, for some reason my blog’s name is written across the nabigation menu, and I ave no idea how to fix that. If anyone knows a way to get rid of that, that would be a huge help.


And of course the second update I did was add more banners. I’m like addicted to making banners. Because they are cute and set my blog apart from other blogs. With the ones I just made it now brings me up to 35 banners. You think that a lot, but I’m not where near done. I still have to make a new Momusu one featuring the 9th gen, and after I know more about a few other idol groups I want make banners for them. And I eventually wanted to make Morning Musume generation banners as well as Team banners for the 48 groups. The banners I made now were subgroups, and groups I’ve been putting off making because I don’t follow them that closely.
So here are the new banners:

Watarirouka Hashiritai


no3b

Not Yet

Mano Erina


NYC


SDN48


YuiKaori

Kanjani8



These aren’t even all the updated I have in mind. Eventually I’m also going to add twitter because a lot of other blogs have twitter. I actually already made an account but I haven’t done much else to it, so I’m not posting it yet. XD


And I also wanted to say that I have officially returned to blogging. Since a majority of bloggers have returned as well. And even Japan seems to be getting back to the swing of things with Music Station making its return. So, my next post will be my return post. 😀

Even more banners!

I swear I’m like super addicted to making banners for this blog. So of course I made to make even more banners. Bringing me up to 27 banners for this blog. I think I need a better hobby. XD Anyway here are the new banners I made. Please don’t laugh at my noobshopping lack of photoshop skills.

First the official group ones.
SKE48:
Momoiro Clover:

And I made some more wota friendly ones. 😀

Nishikido Ryo:
I had to do Ryo’s Boao shoot. It’s so hot! XD

Kusumi Koharu:
Koharu’s actually came out the best. Mostly because I found a great picture that had room for me to blend 3 other pictures on the left.

Konno Asami:
I had to make one for my beloved KonKon! Though this one came out the worst. Since I used different pictures, I had no idea what to do for a background. So I just made it her group color. XD
Yamapi:
Of course I had to make a Yamapi one.
Suzuki Airi:
This picture didn’t even need blending effects.

AKB48:

I found this picture randomly one day when I was looking up AKB48 pictures, so I had to make a banner out of it. XD
Akanishi Jin:
I made this Jin banner long before it was ever announced he would be leaving KAT-TUN. I wonder if he still counts now? XD

So yeah 27 banners, you’d think that would be enough. But I haven’t even scratched the surface of what I want to eventually have. I still have to make one for Canary Club, Kanjani8, Idoling!!!, YuiKaori, and solo ones for each of my favorite idols. Which is a lot. XD
