Nyobain WordPress Berbayar / Paid Plan!

Minggu lalu, aku memiliki domain baru untuk blog ini yaitu clumsyyellow.com ! Biar apa? Biar keren aja sebenernya hahaha. Setelah bikin blog ini, aku jadi ingat bahwa dulu aku pernah ingin punya situs dan domain sendiri, walaupun belum tau kontennya apa dan bagaimana caranya.

Nah, kata Google, pilihannya adalah antara pakai fasilitas paid plan / paket berbayar yang sudah disediakan WordPress.com, atau self-hosting (cari jasa hosting sendiri dan bisa pakai WordPress.org). Setelah galau dan bolak-balik cari ilmu di Google dua minggu sebelumnya, dengan berbagai pertimbangan, akhirnya aku memilih paket berbayar WordPress.com.

Tertarik untuk pakai paket berbayarnya WordPress.com juga? Baca ke bawah ya 😀

Oh, I am not a tech-savvy, jadi tulisan ini kubuat sesuai apa yang aku tangkap dari artikel-artikel yang baru-baru ini kubaca, dan istilah-istilah di sini memakai bahasa awam sesuai pemahamanku. Tapi semoga bisa dipahami dan menambah wawasan untuk kamu yang penasaran dengan paket berbayar dari WordPress.com ini!

Remote Working, Enak Gak Sih?

img_0232-3
Sejak awal tahun 2018, aku bekerja secara remote, alias aku bekerja tanpa perlu ngantor. Aku bisa bekerja dimana pun aku mau. Lokasi perusahaan tempatku bekerja saat ini berada di Jakarta Selatan, tapi aku bekerja dari Bandung, tanpa kantor. Jam kerjaku bisa dibilang cukup fleksibel, tanpa jam masuk dan jam pulang. Everyone would say, enak banget ih! Hmm, enak dong! Tapi nggak selalu kok, hehehe. Aku akan menuliskan sedikit pengalamanku sebagai remote worker, silahkan nilai sendiri ya 😀

Drawing from Memory?!

I’ve been watching “Draw-Off” series from Buzzfeed on YouTube lately. In each episode of this series, there are pairs of incredible artist/illustrator/cartoonist sit face-to-face and compete in a series of drawing challenges –my favorite is when they’re drawing famous characters from memory.

It might sound easy peasy but it is obviously not. Let’s take Patrick Star for example. I’m sure everyone will recognize him easily. But can you recall what kind of pants he’s wearing, what his eyes’ color is, or whether he has eyebrows? Probably not.

We see a lot of characters every day in comics, in TV shows, and in memes. And yet, their details are incredibly hard to remember without a reference. Interesting, right?

After watching all episodes of the series, I feel challenged to do it too! ‘Cause why not? 😀 Continue reading “Drawing from Memory?!”

Hello, Again.

Woohoo I’m writing again! I’m surprised how long it takes for me to write another post after the last one.

(here my excuses start) (just skip this part) These two months had been cray-cray and I was a bit stressed out. There were some new projects at work. There was some minor renovation in my house which was quite disturbing. My house assistant is no longer around so I gotta help to do the chores I’m not accustomed to. I had a lot of irons in the fire and gotta go out of town almost every week so I was physically tired. And also, there were some personal things/issues going on that made me mentally drained. I used all my free time to rest, pray, do nothing and overthink things, or simply meditate. Writing was not my top priority, so yeah. (here the end of my excuses) (thank you if you actually care and read this, lol)

And now some of them had passed, I feel like I can actually take a breath and continue my routine. Working in peace, drawing, hanging out, everything. And also writing! I think I have some more topics to be shared in this blog, hopefully I can make writing one of my routines too! I’m gonna start with one post per week to start –will try my best to manage.

This is no longer a 30-day-writing-challenge-whatsoever, it’s just me trying to consistently grow my skill in writing. So, hello again!🌼

My Last Post

…for this 30-day writing challenge! I think in my case the name 30-post writing challenge suits better than 30-day writing challenge lol. Anyway, cheers!

I can’t say I love writing as lightly as I’d say I love drawing just yet, although I feel like my writing is slightly improved after those 29 posts I made. I said slightly, ’cause I know my writings still suck. But hey, look!

Some posts are related because most ideas came from my former posts; means an idea is grown. The more I write, the more ideas I have. Just like the more I draw, the more I feel inspired to draw.

Soooo.. this won’t be the last time you see my writings! I want to try having my own domain or writing on other platforms like Medium, but let’s see. And I probably won’t post as many as I did before, but yes, there are more to come!! If you have any theme regarding art or anything else you’re curious about, just hit me up 😀

Thank you to everyone who’ve been reading my writings, I appreciate you a lot XOXO.
