Upload Once, Blog Anywhere: Photos from Google

Google Photos is one of the most popular ways of storing and sharing photos online. WordPress.com is one of the most popular ways to blog. Wouldn’t it be great if they played well together — if you could use photos you’ve uploaded to Google on your site?
We thought so, too: starting today, you can browse, search, and copy photos from your Google account right from your blog posts and pages. Introducing: photos from Google!

The Heartbeakers

Hello everybirdy!
I was recently invited to join the development of a friend’s game, which is super exciting! Before I joined the team was only two people, an artist/designer and a programmer. They asked me to do the writing for the game and of course I jumped at the opportunity!
As much as I love 2D and 3D work, narrative writing has a special place in my heart.

So, it’s a strategy game called The Heartbeakers, in which you play as a small […]

Om att bli kallad söt och känna sig förminskad

Under gårdagen var jag med i Invest in Games 2017 som utställare. Jag representerade Sam and Nicole och var där för att mingla och skapade nya kontakter. På plats fanns Sveriges radio och de ville fråga mig lite om hur det är att vara kvinna i spelindustrin nu när Dataspelsbranchen har släppt nya siffror där det framkommer att bara 2 av 10 i industrin identifierar sig som kvinna. Som en ung tjej i industrin och hoppas på en förändring så […]

Life drawing – final assignments

Hello all! This summer has gone by so unbelievably fast, I get a bit stressed out when I think about it. But it’s definitely been fun!
Our final assignment in life drawing class was twofold; the first part was to make a sculpture, which we did in class with a model as a reference. The second part was to redraw a classical painting, but change it slightly.
Here’s my sculpture:





I’m actually quite pleased with how it turned out. […]

WordPress.com Business Now Supports Plugins and Third-Party Themes

For many years, WordPress.com has been a simple way for people to create their own beautiful WordPress website in minutes.
But that simplicity came with a tradeoff — WordPress.com did not offer built-in support for the thousands of third-party plugins and themes that helped make WordPress the world’s largest and most open web publishing platform.
Now, we’ve made a significant change to the WordPress.com Business plan: you can access and add third-party plugins and themes built by the WordPress community. It’s […]
