Small Updates to everythingis-art

  I've made small updates to the site, but first, some exciting news.

  I was contacted by the Singapore Memory Project to add my blog to their site. They left a comment on my blog saying;

Dear Sir/Madam, 
On behalf of the National Library Board (NLB), we would like to invite you to pledge your blog to the Singapore Memory Project as part of efforts to collect memories that are already manifested in existing online channels. 
The Singapore Memory Project (SMP) is a national initiative to collect, preserve and provide access to Singapore’s knowledge materials. Spearheaded by NLB, the SMP aims to build a national collection of content in diverse formats (including print, audio and video), to preserve them in digital form, and make them available for discovery and research. 
By pledging your blog to SMP, you are affirming that every memory matters. Whether your posts are an account of your daily life, or an expression of your thoughts, the SMP hopes to find a home for your memories so that it can help build towards an understanding of Singapore. You will also receive a badge that you can display on your blog in recognition of your contributions.
Contributors to this blog pledging initiative will be listed on Singapore Memory portal’s blog pledging webpage. All blogs pledged to SMP will archived using NLB’s web harvesting software, in addition to images of each blog’s landing page.  
If you are keen to pledge your blog to SMP, simply fill up our response form at this following URL: http://singaporememory.simulation.com.sg/Public/Pledge.

  I'm honoured to be chosen by them and of course accepted the offer.



Now, for the updates...

  I've changed the tabs above. (The red bar up there. ^^^)

  "My Pages" hasn't changed much. I'm hoping to do reviews on more art books, art magazines, sketchbooks, pens, pencils, coloured pencils, and other art materials in the future, so that's where you'll find an overview of all those.

  In the past, if you clicked the "Recommended Artist" and "Painting of the Day" you'd be brought to a list. Now, they're linked to their respective labels so you can just scroll through everything to find something you like. That's the major change. I'm hoping it'll be easier for you, Dear Reader, to find something that inspires you that way.

  If you'd like to see the lists of all the artists that I've featured, click on "The List" tab.

  The "Contact Me" tab contains my e-mail, but I've also added my Tumblr urls, and my website address.


  I've also gone through all the posts on this blog. I've gone through where all the links go to. Fixed all the dead links. Updated the labels on every posts. Re-uploaded photos that would not load previously. Increased the sizes of all pictures for easier viewing. Added more information to the links that give me the most traffic. And pretty much made everything easier for you, Dear Reader to view this blog.


  I've many plans for the site. My father is currently working on a large painting and I'm planning to do a blow-by-blow blog post of his process from start to finish. I've managed to convince my mother to bank in on her sewing talents and sew some bags, pouches, and pencil wraps for artists to be sold on this blog. Really excited for that. And I'm hoping to do more review on books and art materials. I'm also going to be building my portfolio so you'll be seeing more of my works on here. Some tutorials, perhaps?

  It's going to be a busy, busy year. :) I'm really hyped up, especially after representatives for the Singapore Memory Project contacted me. I hope you come back to visit often. And as always, leave me a comment in the comment section below. I'd love to hear what you think about this blog.

  P.S. I did purposely make all my sites have an accent of red.
