D is for Design
Its important. I'm mostly talking about web design here, with your social platform on things like blogs, Facebook, YouTube, etc. If people can't understand whats going on or your sites are inaccessible or unnavigable, they're not going to know what your all about let alone come back. Thats the beauty of Blogger and YouTube, which make clear, comprehensible design easy.
Although, adding flair and snazziness is still up to you. I'm obviously not much of a designer, and though I've tried to keep my sites from being confusing or muddled, I would love some ideas about adding a little sum'n sum'n. Pretty sure there are some cool sites to help personalize or beautify your sites, aren't there? I just don't know where to go, so ideas would be great. I've found some absolutely gorgeous blogs out there, and I'd love to know all your secrets :) One of my favorite examples of beautiful design is the website for the magazine Cavalier Literary Couture. Although they still haven't responded to a submission from September...whats up with that?
Anyway, best of luck your web designing. Keep things simple and clear and you, so that people can find you easily and like what they find. Happy writing!
