I haven’t been gone or anything! I’ve just been doing some subtle updates that you might not notice. Here’s a teeny tiny recap:
- Worked on Lux Perpetua (which also won an award over at Amassment in June!!
- Progressed on a super secret project I’ve had in the works since the beginning of May. (You can technically access it right now if you know the link, but it is still in process right now. It’s part of an Amassment event called Construction Zone! :D)
The reason I haven’t been around much is that my mom has been very sick and is now hospitalized…please keep thoughts, prayers, and/or good vibes coming her way!
My Dove fansite, Lux Perpetua, just got a recommendation over at The Amazing, a shrine recommendation site run by a couple of my Amassment friends. Check out their review at the above link–I am so flattered by this (and pleasantly surprised!!)
Can’t believe it’s been 11 years since I bought this domain and began filling it with various web works!
Sites have come and gone, and there have been many facelifts, but WithinMyWorld.org has stood the test of time. It was my 20th birthday present to myself, in the midst of college exams, and it has seen me enter other stages of my life since then. :’) Ah, memories. <3
Here's to many more years! *clinks glasses*
I’ve been working with this newsblog’s theme here and there to improve its display, and I believe I’ve finally ironed out all its kinks. Always room for tinkering and polishing when it comes to custom WordPress themes, I’ve learned!
Ten years ago today, I purchased withinmyworld.org for my own, amid the flurry of college exams and birthday preparations. (Yep, WMW.org shares my birthday!)
WMW.org has grown and shrunk and grown again in that decade, but it has always been my pride and joy on the Internet, serving as both my webdesign sandbox and showcase of my best works. In a way I can’t believe it’s been 10 years–where did the time go? Oh yeah…it was spent getting better at this whole “webdesign” thing ^_^;
Happy 10th birthday, my little web-rugrat! Hopefully Mommy will get faster at updating you over the next 10 years xD
On my main page, you can now see several web cliques I’ve joined (under “Joined” on the sidebar). 🙂
I also joined the Amassment.org Forums a couple of weeks ago and am enjoying it thus far. It’s great to be back in an active community of webdesigners!
*ECSTATIC DANCING AROUND*
WOOT! Version 14 is FINALLY live–go check it out! I finally decided to not worry with an outside guestbook, and instead made a “guestbook” page on this news blog. (Hopefully it works well and doesn’t glitch up!) And, with that pesky project out of the way, I was able to upload all my Version 14 stuff at last. ABOUT TIME, RIGHT?? LOL
I did have to do quite a bit of debug after I loaded it, but everything looks fine now. Please let me know if you see a problem with anything! 😀
If you’ve wondered why there has been a lot of radio silence here at WMW.org, it’s because I’ve been keeping up with my blog, Crooked Glasses. (If you’ve never checked it out, please do so–I write about all kinds of topics, because my personal life is just not that interesting. LOL)
I’ve also been trying to put together many of the little fansites I’ve been promising for over a year. My video game fansite, as well as my Dove fansite and my British TV shows site, are all in various stages of completion. (Actually, I think my Brit-TV site might be almost done…haven’t glanced in the folder in, uh, a while. XD)
Keep up with this page for further updates–I promise you, when a site of mine is actually finished, you’ll hear the whoop of joy from wherever you are in the world. XD
Can you believe it! 8 years ago this past Saturday (December 8th), I first registered withinmyworld.org. Since then, it’s been everything from an anime portal to a graduate portfolio…what a strange and meandering path!
May the next year be full of more updates and layouts–and hopefully a few more sites along the way! 😀
Randomly hit by a burst of inspiration last night, I began putting together the graphics for a tentative Version 14.
…Wow, brain. V13 hasn’t even been up for a month, and I had to cudgel you pretty hard to even get it done, and NOW you want to start the whole process over again. Just WOW. LOL
