One Hundred Days of Happy - Day 22  
I kinda let this little 'event' slip, but I really need a touch of the happy today. It's not like anything heart-rending has happened, nah, but I've gotta stop catching whiffs of fandom pettiness on Twitter (usually not from my own timeline, but trickling in from the periphery) and I'M WEAK AND HAVE TO SNOOP and then I see things I'd rather not. So. Snuggle me in your mothering arms, LJ. At least for today. ;)

Anywho, some happy! I've always hated my 'pro' website because 1.) it was ugly and 2.) um, well, it was ugly. And also, kinda scattershot and too full of fandom things for professional uses. It's tough for me to brand myself and I'm a pretty dubious web designer, but I found a free site that's user-friendly and not too obnoxious, so I cooked up a new, streamlined, greatly improved portfolio site: quickreaver.com.

Feel free to check it out and leave me a critique! Test the links. Suss out bugs. Make suggestions! I have yet to add a shop with non-fandom work; I don't have much stuff to peddle yet, but it's forthcoming. For the time being, I'm happy I made something that's usable, somewhat professional, and not boring or (hopefully) over-the-top. Eventually, I'll upgrade to the paid version and get rid of the ads, and as I hone my brand (whatever that turns out to be), the inventory of images will grow and evolve into...something? Apparently I have a lousy time taking myself seriously as a professional, yep.

But I'm happy I finagled a portfolio site, so there's that!

I was viewing on my work desktop computer. I wonder if the word-splittage maybe has something to do with the paragraph alignment? It looks like some of the spacing within the paragraph looks kind of funky, like maybe it's aligned using Justify.

Haha, it won't take long to devour - it's not even 2k! But I do hope you enjoy it. And you're kinda [really] awesome too ^_^ ♥

Can you take a screen grab of the issue for me? I fiddled a little more today. Thanks!

Sure thing, boss ;)

DRAT. I aligned using the site's Justify tool, yep. The parenthesis must flummox the derned thing. I'll change that. Thank you! (And I enjoyed the heck out of your fic!)

Happy to help! Good luck with the fix!
