Websites You Never Wanted To See

I'm designing my website. Has anyone else done this already? I'm a little disappointed that my designer vetoed my first theme, which was various pictures of my head on Richard Simmons' body. He said it gave him nightmares.

Buy my books! And eat more vegetables. Just not...uh...THESE vegetables.


So now I'm all out of ideas, unless you count the theme where I highlight celebrities with hairstyles that look like food.

Forget the nightmare-inducing vegetables. The web needs sites devoted to hairstyles that look like yummy breakfast foods. And buy my books!


Unfortunately, I'm not sure that's right either. So... if you've already done your site, how did it go? And if you haven't, have you already planned it all out?

I got nothing

Claire Dawn said...

Love the name of that website, face in hole!

Couldn't you do something zombie-ish? Little pics of zombies kissing and frolicking in the park and having picnics, etc, since it's like zombie romance (or something)

Carrie, I'm speechless. Absolutely speechless!

Mariah Irvin said...

Um, I think I'm going to lay off of vegetables for a while.

I think your new website should be covered in zombies and ninjas.

Kasie West said...

LOL What?? No Richard Simmons themed website?? I'm so disappointed. That would have been pure awesome. I have not designed or even thought about my website. Good luck there. I'm sure yours will be brilliant.

Hmm.I figured it would be you in the zombie cheerleader outfit.

You know, the one that causes car accidents

Carrie Harris said...

Face in hole is awesome. And I'm sorry to have burnt out your vision, people. :)

That first pic gives new meaning to the phrase "corn hole."

Wait, no, that's pretty much the same meaning.

I've thought about it, mostly consolidating my portfolio and both blogs into one site, but I'm not quite ready to make that leap yet. Maybe I'll do it when I start publishing the sequel to "From the Ashes" via weekly blog posts.

Currently I'm scraping together what bills and change I can and stowing them away, so I can commission the brother-in-law to create some custom artwork. I don't want to go through all the work of building a site just to have to start over from scratch when I finally get some artwork done. I just got done with that hell for a volunteer project.

I say a wallpaper of a sword wielding ninja in mid-strike toward a zombie. :D

I love FaceInHole! Elvis and I got married awhile back, you know. Great pictures, Carrie. The Star Wars one is you!

Larissa said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I don't have any advice, but that pic of Richard-Carrie made my day.

Myrna Foster said...

I don't have any website advice, but both pictures made me laugh. Thanks, Carrie!

Cate Gardner said...

I have a website. However, it's far from designed. :D That first picture is going to creep me out for days.

shasha said...

those pics are hilarious!good luck on your new website!

You have to make your website reflect who you are and what you're all about. In other words, it better be freakin' funny. Or else. Don't try and make it some serious site. No. No way. Make it reflective of you and your brilliant sense of humor.

Fun. Knee.

And that is all now.

Robin said...

Ha ha! How about Zombie Princess Leia?

I picked a designer. And sent her a list of sites I love. That's as far as I've gotten. :)

Jen said...

This made me giggle, I'm staying away from the vegetables for sure!

Solvang Sherrie said...

The one in the veggies -- SCARY!!!

I'm actually a web developer, so I have several websites. Lately, though, I have reverted to ONLY having blogs. They do everything I need, and are super easy to keep from getting stagnant.

The problem with a regular website, is if you don't update it often, people get bored fast.
