about the world of Animal Crossing
This site was a HUGE challenge for me to accomplish, especially with all the heartache of my mother’s worsening illness over the last year, culminating in her passing in April. I honestly didn’t know if I’d ever feel like making anything creative ever again. I also struggled with HOW to do this site; it kept suffering from “wiki-itis” as I simply retyped horrible boring lists of basic info I found in my research. I often felt trapped somewhere between “informing viewers ABOUT the world” and “using the info to ANALYZE the world.”
Thus, this little site would not be possible without the aid of these fine folks:
With their help, I was finally able to break out of “wiki-itis” and create a fitting tribute to the world of Animal Crossing, with full-bodied descriptions, analyses, and even the use of music in unexpected ways. It blossomed nearly overnight, from an embarrassment to something approaching a magnum opus. It’s not just a site about Animal Crossing’s world anymore, but a site about our OWN world, too, by extension…I’m still amazed that any of this came out of my head when my brain cells have been so scattered! But as with most of my sites, this was truly a group effort and I’m so happy I tried this. ♥ ♥ ♥
a music tributes site
I vastly expanded my old “WMW.org Radio” site to become Mellifluous, a music tributes site featuring “new to me” songs, all time top favorite tracks, and five 20-song Youtube playlists assembled according to various themes. It’s got plenty of room for expansion as I add more favorite songs and create new playlists, but for now, enjoy what I have uploaded so far!
6 Biblical selections that guide my faith practice
This is a site that has been in the works for a really long time! Living Words is a one-page-wonder showcasing most if not all of my favorite Bible verses and/or passages. (It’s also technically a revamp of my old, unnamed faith site, which is now offline.)
Along with the Bible verses, I’ve included context for each selection, and I added 4 handy informational links at the bottom of the page as well. Also, if you hover over each of the book/chapter/verse notations, a tooltip will appear detailing what each selection means to me.
I hope this will be a much better Christian resource than what I had before, and in the future I hope to add more verses to it as well. Check it out and let me know what you think!
Counterbalance – Jessie & James
Team Rocket’s Blasting Off Again–onto my domain! This is my not-so-small tribute to a pair of anime characters I’ve adored since I was thirteen. <3
I intend the site to serve not only as an introduction to Jessie & James, but also as an introduction to the entire show for those who haven’t seen the first couple of seasons in a while. (I chose to use the Kanto and Orange Islands seasons as my sole basis for this site, because I feel that those two seasons had the best writing and character development for my favorite characters.)
I hope you enjoy reading the articles as much as I’ve enjoyed writing and compiling them!! 😀
Good Ol’ Ev!
a dedication to Evinrude the dragonfly from Disney’s The Rescuers
Never thought a little bug could be heroic? Well, Evinrude will prove how tough and necessary even the smallest of dragonflies can be! Check out my site about his role in The Rescuers and find out all there is to know! 🙂
Since I’m planning a good number of sites dedicated to books and book characters, I thought it was time for a sub-collective listing:
So far there’s only one site listed–my Helen Burns fansite–but rest assured there will be more!! 😀
Been polishing this one since I got to see Inside Out in theaters last summer:
Love You to the Moon, a small tribute to Bing Bong
This one page site is packed full of feels; I cried while writing it, and you might cry (with both sad and happy tears) while reading it. Have your tissues handy as you learn more about this wonderful minor character who utterly stole the show!
Presenting my newest site, just in time for the holidays: Unspend!
This little GIF-heavy, conversational site arose out of one of my 2015 resolutions concerning money-saving; it has grown from a tiny fun project into a mindset-changing philosophy about money, spending, and happiness. Check it out!
After 7 years, my shrine to Dove from Hawk & Dove comics is online!
Lux Perpetua has been a labor of love for many years–I had it almost 80% done in 2011, but the Great Hard Drive Crash of 2011 lost all its files. Now, at last, this tribute to my favorite comic book superhero is viewable, and can only get more complete with time!
Check it out when you get a chance! (This site is also my entry for the August Transformation Challenge over at Bad @ss B!tches.)
After a good two or three months of real work, I finally completed my depression information site, Illuminate! Check it out and let me know what you think–I have suffered depression several times and am empathetic toward depression sufferers as a result, but I also wanted to create an informative site for non-sufferers as well.
