All right, I told myself I was going to do this and now I will. Just watch me.
For a long time now I’ve been realizing that my blog hasn’t accurately displayed a really important part of me, and I am slowly realizing that this isn’t something I can hide or ignore. We all have feelings, hopes, dreams, and while I have always been too scared to show it off before, this is my day to shine.
I want to be a web designer.
This may come as a surprise to many of you because you have not seen any evidence of my craft, and I’ve never posted about it. I assure you, I’m serious and I can’t keep it in anymore! Not only do I LOVE drawing and creating my own blog designs, but I know I can help other people on their own blogs. Because I’m enormously talented.
I decided that to celebrate my big day, I would redesign a few other blogs and show off what I’ve got. I know that these bloggers are already proud of their own work, and they should be—it’s just that I’m so kind and generous and much better.
So, I’ve done some design tweaks, shined up the blog themes, and gotten a few testimonial reviews of the pitches. Be sure to let me know what you think, and enjoy!
We can take over the world with cyborg opal squirrels.The devious Opal decides to put everything on hold and begin to take over the world with opal squirrels of her own ingenious design. With the assistance of her mighty cat Hunter, she wields a pen and nuclear weapons, and details the progress of her world takeover in an online diary. Merry takeover, everyone!
“I never thought I would want to live under the maniacal control of an evil dictator, but after reading Opal Squirrels I can see that the world is in good hands!” –Timmy Big
“The squirrels are so cute and I’m just sure that this plan can’t go wrong. Hey, what does this button do?” –Opal’s Grandma

If you don’t have anything nice to say, grab a pint and pull up a chair.Imogen reopens her blog as a hub for our favorite fictional fiends—a safe place for villains and other dastardly figures to complain about the hazardous heroes of their own tales!

“It’s hard being the Dark Lord. I know that when I come here I’m among friends, and no one will make fun of me for being defeated by a baby. Drinks on me!” –Tom (“Voldemort”) Riddle
“I had the perfect plan. And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for those meddling kids and their stupid Raven!” –Anastasia Furan (on her third round, so we can assume she liked it)
(formerly Gossiping with Dragons)
Serving takeout: greasy, buttery, tasty and obesity by Alyssa Carlier since 1940.Alyssa approaches a stage in her blog where her takeout no longer pertains to dry old books but the moist comfort food that nourishes us all. Whether she discusses the latest meal she’s decided to share or the morality of eating the Devil’s food, you’re sure to leave satisfied. Come hungry, leave sinfull!
“The takeout sporks have become more than a meal—they’re a way of life. If hell is a fast food chain then baby, you can have my soul!” –Mickey Donald
“They serve bacon here. That’s all you need to know.” –Wendy King
(formerly The Devil Orders Takeout)
Do you hear the people fart in your general direction?Aimee explores both comedy and tragedy as she uses all her powers of snark and sarcasm, and of course unending sympathy, as she examines some of the greatest pieces of musical literature and film in France. One shrubbery required for every entry. Be sure to visit; we don’t want any empty chairs at empty tables!
“I laughed and cried at the same time—there is a grief that can’t be spoken because we’re all alone, there is no one here beside us. We just have to always look on the bright side of life and remember that every day we walk with stronger steps, we walk with longer steps, the worst is over.” –Arthur P.
“You won’t want to look down, because this is the blog that goes like this!” –Jean V.

Now, because I am a gracious and generous web designer, I thought it would be fun to have a vote! Many bloggers have seen or heard of Madam Cait from Paper Fury, but as I’m sure you’ve realized by now she is not living up to her full potential. Will she find a new and creative way to deal with the paper products in her life, or join the brave new initiative to save the world, square by square?
The choice is yours!
