I use the nom de plume Val Josephine for my creative endeavors. I created this website as a personal blog to pursue my many creative endeavors including writing, music, crafts, and more.
Because of my many interests, Val Josephine serves as six blogs on one website:
- Crafts & DIY
- Social Issues
I needed my personal website to host content in all six of these areas.
I installed the Extra theme by Elegant Themes. With that theme, I was not only able to create a home page featuring my articles from each of my six sections, but I was able to create a custom category page for each of those disciplines.
Each custom category page features its own icon, and many contain custom sidebar information; for instance, the Knowledge category contains a feed of National Geographic’s tweets.
I also completed all graphic design elements on the site, i.e. the logo and site icons.
