la-la-lada-la ~ version 16

Okay, so wasn’t really what I originally planned… but it doesn’t look so bad does it? I only like the header, and the purple navigation. Otherwise, it’s kinda… meh. And I’ve organized everything (especially the tumblr and tutorial page) so that it’s much more efficient and accessible. Anyhow, I stayed up late setting everything up and answering a couple questions about tumblr photosets and other fun stuff and now, I’m super tired so I think I’m going to go sleep.

Anyhow, since my last post, I’ve actually updated… a lot.

tutorial on CSS smooth drop-down menu
2 texture pattern set
2 new tumblr themes
re-coded tumblr theme 01 and 05
added an alternate version for tumblr theme 13
added infinite scrolling for tumblr theme 13 version 2, theme 14 version 2 and theme 10


tumblr themes

So I have a question guys… should I make a tumblr for my themes? I mean, at the moment, I only set up an Ettudis tumblr site for people to ask questions and make comments but should I release tumblr themes on it? The reason why I originally didn’t want it is because I wanted the themes to be an extension of my site, but if I make it a tumblr site, it would become seperate… does that make sense?

Like, I found that many people are just linking directly (in reblogs and stuff) towards my tumblr theme page, not my actual site homepage. And I feel that if I just completely move all my themes to a tumblr site, they will just completely ignore my site… so yes, the main point of this topic is how I want to direct traffic to my site.

Anyhow, I need suggestions. Making a tumblr site for my themes would popularize my themes but de-popularize my graphic site. In other words, traffic will be directed mostly to the tumblr site instead of my site. In a way, I don’t want that because my site is my priority.

I dunno. I’m thinking, of maybe post tumblr previews on the tumblr site, but have them direct back to the main site. But that’s soooo complicated.  I mean, as a visitor, I would hate that. gahhhh *tears out hair* I don’t know what to do!!!!!!

On a side note, sorry if I have been neglecting my actual site comments. I’ve been somewhat busy and lazy on replying to people. But I have answered any questions regarding tumblr themes HERE.

EDIT: Also, if I did make a tumblr for my themes, I could also post some “found” resources, and direct more questions there. Like, the whole set up would be nice.
