Okay then, I’m unintentionally attracting pageviews while I’m playing around with this blog, so I might as well do a proper intro. To be honest, I seriously can’t wait to get started on it >_<
Buuut I’m going to have to wait just the same, because… this will be my Animal Crossing 3DS blog It’s still not set in stone though. If you know me, you’ll know I am terrible at keeping at something consistently 😛 Anyhoo…
Lily of the Valley
To be honest, I always felt the blog name ‘ACWW Happiness ^_^’ was a little awkward (no kidding, it even comes with a smiley whose mouth disappears every time it gets put into a link -_-). After all, I didn’t put much thought into the name when I hardly even knew what I was doing or how seriously I would take blogging at the time.
Well, the name Lily of the Valley struck me about a year ago, and I thought it would be very appropriate if I were ever to create a new Animal Crossing blog. It’s the name of the flower that got lost in translation, the “Jacob’s Ladder”.
I don’t know if there are Lilies of the Valley in AC:3DS. But when I first learned of the actual species of the flower that signifies a town’s perfect status, I thought it had a lovely name and that it was a shame it was no longer used in the English version. So even if they continue to be localised as Jacob’s Ladders, or even if AC:3DS doesn’t have them at all, I wanted to have my own little “Lily of the Valley” right here 🙂
My Blog Theme
I spent a while going through Themes and settled on this one, called Oxygen. My other blog, for AC:WW, has a very dark theme that helps enhance the colours of my pictures. Subsequently, I wanted to try a light theme for a spacious, clean feel for this blog.
I also think the Oxygen theme layout is good for my blogging style. When I post, I post lots of pictures. My AC:WW Hemingway theme always annoyed me because it simply lists the title of each post, with no sort of preview whatsoever. On the other hand, using a theme that displays entire posts in a list would probably frighten half my visitors away, so I really like Oxygen’s approach.
Hmm, that’s it for now, I think. Oh, and look at the date. I did actually have this blog set up and waaaiting for AC:3DS since the start of the year 😛 Well, I knew it wasn’t coming out then but I knew I would be getting it. BUT WHO KNEW IT WOULD TAKE THIS LONG!! Haha 😛
Oh well, see you round. I think.
