Welcome to the new Tessisamess!

Hey guys! I'm back in action and bringing a bunch of exciting announcements along with me! Keep reading to find out everything new going on here at [info]tessisamess—I promise you won't be disappointed!

A Brand New Look!

If you're reading this on your friends list, be sure and head over to my journal and check out the new digs! I've fully redesigned to (hopefully) give you a better browsing experience, complete with my first official logo!

The Layout Shop!

What's the Layout Shop? It's a brand new feature here on [info]tessisamess, where you can purchase ready-made layouts fully stocked with all the bells and whistles, just like my commission pieces! When you buy a layout from the shop you're also getting personalized edits from me so that it's all ready for your character when you get it!

What's this mean? You get your completed layout quickly and at cheaper prices—we all win! (No really—complete game bundles in the new shop are now only $100 USD—this is the first time I've ever been able to offer prices this low!) Head on over to see what's available for purchase!

Now on Patreon!

That's right! I am now on Patreon and offering a lot of pretty rad rewards to my patrons! Why have I made this decision? Well, a few reasons! I really need to be making a small monthly income to be able to keep coding for you guys, and if we start hitting goals I'll be able to post a lot more free content and with a lot more frequency!

I'll also have the time to expand to other types of codes, like HTML pages, Tumblr codes with advanced programming, and Dreamwidth codes! With Patreon, you can all look forward to a monthly schedule of steady code and layout releases, as well as Patreon-exclusive codes for certain patron levels!

Custom Commissions

My custom layout post is, unfortunately, disabled for the time being. I'm sorry there had to be a bad announcement on the post! I've had to finally admit to myself that the amount of work for the low prices I charge is too much for me to handle, so this post will stay decommissioned in favor of the layout shop and my Patreon for the time being. I may bring it back in the future or for special events, but I sincerely hope that you all love the new options as much as I do!

Code Tester v3.0!

And that brings us back around to good news again! I've been wanting to do this for a while now, but just haven't had the time. The next time you use my tried and true code tester you'll see some big changes! What changes, you may ask? Syntax highlighting, automatic previews, and one-click saving of any codes you edit or make! Welcome to the newest version of the Tessisamess Code Tester; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

RIGHT?! I wasn't gonna turn on/style custom comment pages, but then at the last second I changed my mind and I'm so glad I did haha.

This is amazing and awesome and I adore your work! I have a question!

Do your layouts in the layout shop translate over into working on other platforms, like Dreamwidth? Or do they strictly work with insanejournal?
Jun. 27th, 2017 10:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! ♥ That means so much to hear.

At the moment my layouts only work here on IJ, but I'd love to be able to expand into translating my more popular layouts into DW-compatible versions (as well as making new ones for DW!) How well my Patreon does on a monthly basis will largely decide how much time I can dedicate strictly to RP resources, so I'm hoping we'll do well enough over there that I can start expanding! That would also include my shop items. :D

That's awesome to know, and a great incentive for becoming a patreon! Signing up because I genuinely love your work, and in general thank you for all the freebies you've provided!
Jun. 27th, 2017 10:31 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you so much for the pledge and for using my work! I love doing this, and I'd love to be able to dedicate as much time to making resources for RPers as I possibly can.

You'll also be able to be a part of polls on my Patreon on the first of every month to help decide what sort of content gets made for free-use, so definitely keep an eye on your inbox this weekend!

Oooh, shiny! And welcome back! I'm looking forward to seeing all the stuff you've been working on cause all the stuff you've rolled out so far is freaking excellent! (also I've missed you, selfishly)
Jun. 28th, 2017 04:14 pm (UTC)
Hee, thank you, I'm excited too! ♥ I've got some fun stuff lined up to release that I'm pretty stoked for!

This is one of those "I would love to be a patron and show her how much I love her stuff but my super low social assistance income makes that impossible" moments. Sigh. And this is so not a feel sorry for me comment, it's more a I want to help and I would if I could because even though I don't think I've commented before, I really do adore your work and use several of your layouts for my characters, and I thought you should know it's very much appreciated comment. <3 I hope you get enough people who can help out doing so that you reach your goals, really. <3

Also, this layout is super cool, and I don't even really like pink. You're magic.

Aw no, that's okay; don't feel bad! We're all just doing what we can, you know? Thank you so much for liking and using my work! It means so much to me. ♥

And thank you! :D

That's very, very true. I'm glad at least the comment means something :)

You're welcome! :)
