For many reasons, I haven’t updated this site enough. And here are my crappy-ass reasons:
– I’m A Freeloader.
I piggy-back on neighbor’s wi-fi since I’m out of work and can no longer afford the $60.-mo. And their connection mysteriously disappears whenever it snows or heavy rains falls, which is frequently these days.
– I’m Researching Like A M-F.
Just when I think I’ve got the handle on SEO, surprise! There’s more tutorials to learn, more handy websites full of pertinent information, and more YouToob videos to drill into my skullmeat.
– My English-Speaking Skillz Are Being Requested.
Mami & Papi need me to sort out their bills and shit. Don’t be fooled; free rent has it’s price and it, is steep!
– I Am Not A Website Builder.
I know not of coding/ HTML/ CSS/ PHP/ SQL/C++/JAVA/Dreamweaver,
and so, it becomes that much harder to make necessary changes to this site’s layout.
Quite frankly I’m on my own on this as I know of nobody who knows how to do this shit. And I’m a bit slow to learn but once I master it, watch out world!
– Health Concerns.
Lacking healthcare, it gets kinda hard to maneuver around with your body developing an everlasting list of ‘issues’. So you turn into both Scoobee AND Shaggee, and solve your own Nancy Dru mysteries.
So you read a ton of articles and ask around and cut & paste valuable information and try out every suggestion out there. Sorta works. At least enough to get you going. And typing. Like now.
– Lastly, Drawing!
It’s what I do; drawing is what I was born to do. And that takes time. From ideation sketch, to scanning, to rasterizing my file, to cleaning up in a program similar to Photoshop, to coloring it in, to adding filters, to jazzing it up and saving it into diff. file formats and uploading to site.
So! An avg. freelance illustration gig takes anywhere between 30-70 hrs.
A typical work week is 40 hrs. So, yea. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Please understand that as I teach myself all this crap, there is no one single website that has everything i’m looking for. I have to peruse about 5-7 sites just to get that one piece of information because they’re all written in different contexts, or only supply a mere fraction of said topic. That’s really what takes the ever-loving soul draining out of me.
Presently I am working on a post on RSS Feeds and how you can p0wn them.
That will take some time as it is not a short topic.
But I’ll keep adding other stuff as I go on. Stay tuned.
