It’s been a while…
and I put it off for way too long…
but eventually, there was no way around it. The 2dgameartguru.com website/ blog had become a proper mess. Consequently, it stopped me from posting – among other things. There was no easy way to fix it in blogger.com and I made the switch to WordPress last August. It took a while to find enough time and motivation to learn it. The approach is similar yet different – but with a lot more possibilities. I finally worked out how to format the tutorials in ways that will make it easier to read them on mobile devices. I at least I hope so.
Pushing myself to become active again
Daily routines and unforeseen events put the project on the backburner again. It took months before I finally revisited the WordPress tests. I had not posted anything new for a long time. It was supposed to go into the “shiny, brand new” design. The unfinished new design leads to no new tutorials and eventually made me cranky. I was stopping myself from having some fun with the blog.
Eventually, I made the switch. Unfinished, rough and lacking a lot of the features I was hoping to include – for now. The blog is out there in its new look and there is no excuse anymore.
Going back and reworking the blog
At the moment I am still going through the old tutorials. I am reworking the newest and most important ones. Exporting the images again, adding information and fixing a lot of spelling mistakes. 🙁 There is a lot of optimization needed and it is time-consuming. It’s not much fun for a creative person like me either. Nevertheless, I plan to work my way through it and start posting new content as soon as possible. Bare with me and I hope I can reward your patience with new tutorials on Inkscape, Affinity Designer, Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw as well as integrating some of the translations into Spanish, French and German.
