I Luv Pixels is on the move

Just a little info post to let all you lovely subscribers and followers out there that I Luv Pixels is on the move. I haven’t posted anything for a few weeks, because I’ve finally got around to getting a domain, and I’ve spent the past couple of weeks transferring, tidying and generally getting the new home ready. If you want to keep subscribing you may want to pop on over and resubscribe, I’d love it if you would. The old address is redirected there now, so you won’t have any problems finding it, but just in case it’s iluvpixels.co.uk. I hope you enjoy. See you on the flip-side!


I Luv Voxels is here

Don’t you just love WordPress! I had been thinking about moving my 3d blog over to this one for a while just to make it easier to manage, and had thought it was gonna be very difficult and messy. After having done a bit of researching on the WordPress help sections, and a little experimentation, I discovered it was actually really easy merging two blogs together. For anyone wanting to do the same it’s a simple process: over on the left sidebar of your Dashboard, you’ll find Import and Export options in the Tools section. When you export your blog, it will be exported as an .xml file (it doesn’t do any harm to use this for backup your blog to your hard drive every so often too), then you can just go into Import and go to the WordPress option. Simples! All your content, from dates to comments will be imported into your target blog and formatted into it’s css styles. One warning though, you should back up or download all your media before you wipe your old blog since the transfer sometimes won’t happen immediately. You can check out the official procedure for Exporting here and Importing here.

The Shimnavore's Daily Deviation

So today’s I’ve had a bit of excitement on my deviantArt account. Drop-asd suggested my Shimnavore pic for a Daily Deviation today which was duly picked. So I’ve spent the day watching the fav’s and pageviews just piling up. At the minute, views on the image are up to over 13,000 and the favs are up to 870!!! Unbelievable, it also brought a lot of traffic (nearly 300 hits, an alltime record) over to my wordpress blog today.
So this is a entry to say a big, BIG thanks to Drop-asd for the DD. And while I’ve got your attention I’m going to plug her group, Digiversity, a digital art group concentrating on events, challenges and collaboration rather than art collection. If you like contests, features, cooperative work and would like to actively take part in the digital art community, you are welcome on board! It’s a great group if you want to get more involved with other artists or writers on dA.
So once again, thanks for the DD!

Woohoo! I am iPhone..

At last, I finally became the proud owner of a iPhone today. It’s obviously gonna take a wee while to get used to but I’m getting there. I haven’t gotten round to downloading any new apps yet, so I’m just typing this up in Safari.
So, to celebrate, and in the usual tradition of me creating wallpaper anytime I get a new mobile, I decided to make myself a couple of new ones. Feel free to download and use them if you want, just leave me a comment if you download them. And no selling them off please!
