New Design and updates!

So about a month ago, if my readers haven't noticed but my posts have been scarce. Since I started my blog, I have been going back and forth about my design and layout, seeing what I wanted from other sites, but not knowing how to put it on my site. Jasc Photoshop is only SO helpful.
Vector Graphic me!

I tried dabbling in paint and couldn't figure out how to make my site look more the like that E-surance commerical!

What I wanted on my site was called Vector Graphics, and I learned that graphic designers can make up to $35/hr and I was not going to pay that! So I did what I always do. I started researching, watching tutorials, and even started going into chatrooms where I met some very helpful people that are so smart!
So yea, making Vector Graphics is no walk in the park. It's time consuming, tedious, and very detailed.

But I finally made my banner after a few attempts and practice pictures. I still am going to continue to learn and get better. But I think I am going to start focusing more on my blog posts for a while, and try to work on it all evenly.
