Chantal Abbott

Chantal Abbott

Abbott, Chantal - t bordered

Chantal is friendly, funny and a bit ditzy. She never stops chattering, which is one of her major distractions at school.
Chantal is secretly loosely based on a girl that used to be in one of my (real life) classes. She was wonderful, but not very bright and she always came to school in the most tacky outfits. Which she then proudly showed me, her teacher. I loved her to bits though!

Wesley Abbott

Wesley Abbott

Abbott, Wesley - ya bordered

Wesley is Lorenzo and Cheryl Abbott’s eldest son. When he was still in school, he neglected his schoolwork and often hung out with his friends at the forbidden abandoned factory. Wesley and Anna (daughter of the mayor!) had a veryyyyy good time there one night, which had less than good consequences… Wesley is now father to Matthew. You can imagine what this was like for our mayor of high standing… Quite the scandal… Wesley graduated in 04, but is not going to university. Will he get a job? Meh, too much work, really. Wesley does make some money selling fireworks around New Years and doing some DJ-ing.

Blog changes – important message to my followers!

Dear KimmiesSimmies followers,

Over the coming weeks, or possibly months, I’ll be making some changes to this blog. What do I wish to do?

1. Personal pages
For starters I want to give each sim their own page instead of one shared with the rest of their family. This is a lot of work now, but will make things easier in future because it means I won’t have to relink the names in all my stories whenever a sim moves out of their family home.

2. Update the family pages
Giving my sims all a personal page doesn’t mean their family pages will seize to exist. Like Sara did on her blog, I plan to keep the family pages as an overview of the members of the family. I also intend to put a picture of the (outside of) the family home on the family page, which will link to a tour of their home, once one is available.

3. Find a new, cleaner theme
I want a theme which doesn’t feature the sidebar on individual posts, just on the front page. I also want a theme which I can customise more. This is a process which will take time. If anyone has any suggestions for (WordPress.com) themes which might meet my wishes, I’d love to hear. This is a step which might take a while yet, because I want to do the other things first and with the number of sims I have, this might take a while.

And now for the important part…
My planned changes have some consequences for you, my followers. Especially the ones subscribed to receive notification of updates. Because this is a free WordPress blog, I can’t control when you receive a notification. I can’t even send you newsletters myself. WordPress automatically sends everyone who chose to subscribe to my blog, an email whenever I create a new post. The personal pages I intend to give my simmies, are basically just that; “new posts”. This means that over the coming time, you might receive several emails a day notifying you of a new post on KimmiesSimmies. I understand this might be annoying and also understand if you wish to unsubscribe, although I obviously hope you won’t. A new story update is also coming around the weekend, so unsubscribing also means you might miss that and stories to come.

Thanks for your understanding and I hope you all keep visiting KimmiesSimmies!
I’ve already applied these changes to the Abbott family. Their updated family page can be viewed here. Clicking on their names will take you to their personal pages.
