I am at it again… I’m messing with the look of my blog again but not too much this time.
If you’ve been around for a while, you may know that I go through a visual overhaul of this place about once a year… well that’s the plan but it ends up being 3 to 5 times a year.

I actually really like my layout this time. It’s flexible and it’s not too heavy to load for most people. It suits my needs well. I’ve also stuck to a rather spartan black, white and soft pink palette since the beginning and I’m not ready to move on.

Instead, I’ve decided to change up my avatar. First, let me just say my last avatar was and is absolutely gorgeous. It was created by an artist called OOPARTZ and I strongly encourage you to see their work. I chose it because it sort of looks like me… (I wish!) I mean she has the same hair cut and colour as well as the same eye colour and general complexion. I always loved it.

However, I was playing around with a character creator and decided it was time to try something new. I really liked a few of the templates and I especially liked that I can create a whole range of expressions and poses to really bring my avatar to life. I spent way too much time creating versions for every occasion and I would like to use her in posts from now on.

In my head, I call the avatar Rini which is one of the ways my dad use to call me.

I hope you like her as much as I do:

  1. I love it so much! I’m excited to see all the personality your posts will have with all the new pics! 😀

  2. The avatar looks great. An amazing piece of software, if you can make something this varied on a template. I’m most surprised by the doggie picture.

    1. I’m not quite sure how to make that fit in the context of a post but by golly I’m going to try.

Leave me a comment and make my day!
