Both now sport more floral layouts to match the domain layout (which I’m still pretty happy with), and they involve better coding and design techniques–the exits page in particular features a new CSS technique called Flexbox, which will make my designing life about 5000% easier. I’m now super excited to try this on some other layouts!
Things have been a bit busy behind the scenes here at WMWorg! Recently, I found out that my previous host was going to be tripling the price of my plan, so I purchased new hosting with Teacake.org and moved there officially this past week. There were a few bugs to iron out, but Masao (the owner of Teacake.org) was super awesome with troubleshooting and getting me settled in. YAY for great web buddies ♥
Also, I’ve been doing a bit of cleanup work around the main page, network page, and links page. It had been almost two years since I updated the links page, but admittedly the last year and a half has been pretty hectic IRL, so it’s understandable. Now, at least, everything is tidy again, and my newest site The Other Slipper has its official place on my network page!
Lastly, I had hoped to release a project on October 25th, but work on that has been delayed due to my health. Hopefully I will get feeling better ASAP and can finish it, because it’s a labor of love and I can’t wait to show it off!
Finally managed to do a little maintenance and updating on my music site, Mellifluous, and my ASMR site, Unwind. Mellifluous now boasts 5 “hot new” songs from my collection, audible through YouTube videos, and Unwind has 67 new featured videos! Wooo!
In other news, I am still hard at work on my Seto Kaiba fansite and hope to release that later this year if time and health permit. (I’ve been facing possible surgery so things have kinda been crazy around the house :/ )
WOOT! This is a momentous day for WithinMyWorld.org–for the first time, she’s sporting a mobile-friendly and responsive PARALLAX layout! (If you don’t know what parallax is or why anybody would geek out over it, let’s just say parallax is the reason why my site looks so sleek and scrolls so pretty with all the different images. LOL!) I am in love with it and can’t stop scrolling up and down, thinking, “OH WOW I HELPED MAKE THIS???” (If it hadn’t been for that demo I found, I would have never gotten it to work!)
The network page has received a matching facelift, though it was a bit rushed–I couldn’t figure out how to make the silly divs obey me, so I had to use the trusty table tag again. (Hey, if it ain’t broke in most browsers, don’t fix it, right? ROFL) Also, I added a page about this new design over at Disguises, my layout archive.
Y’all, I am SUPER EXCITED about finally being able to make this work! As always, let me know if a few code bugs slipped out while I wasn’t looking, and I hope you enjoy!
I know WMW.org has been quiet for the last month, and there is a reason for that. My mom passed away on April 25th, 2017, after a very long and painful battle with multiple illnesses; the last eight months of her life were misery and agony, and she wanted to be with her father, brother, sister, and mother again. I prayed for her to be healed and whole and happy again…and she is now. Even though I miss her terribly, I would not wish for her to be imprisoned in her injured and ailing physical body again. But it was very hard to work on anything site-related when I pretty much knew she was not going to be here much longer, as you can imagine.
I don’t know what I will be able to get done here throughout the rest of 2017…things are still strange and empty here at home, and grief is a weird ebb and flow of tides in my head. But I did want to share with you the playlist I made for Mom’s Celebration of Life–I wanted others to know my mom through music, because she loved music. I hope you enjoy it. <3
After a year and some change (both figuratively and literally), I have gone back to tackle this site! Since I have been recently diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, whose symptoms include depression, I have added important details about how PTSD connects to depression to round out this site and make it more informative and helpful. (I also added Google Fonts, a new button, and updated code to my current standards.) Let me know what you think!
I’ve been quiet about my work on Absentia (my Eighth Doctor site), but that doesn’t mean I quit working on it entirely! (I did have some slowdowns due to lack of inspiration and motivation, but I think I’m fighting through those now :D)
Anyhow, I’ve added a couple new articles to Absentia: PTSD, the Eighth Doctor, and Me, and A Wacky Theory about the TV Movie. Check ’em out, let me know if they look weird or are hard to read, and let me know what you think about the topics I’ve covered! 😀
Also, I’m working behind the scenes on my Olaf site, The Impossible Dream (not going to link it yet because what is currently up is kind of embarrassing slkdjflksjdf). It got nominated for a Shrine Spotlight award over at Amassment, so I’m newly motivated to get this thing shined up and beefed up with more content, better layout/fonts, etc.!
YAY I’m slightly more productive now! (more like infinitesimally more productive xD)
(Also I added another project to my list: I’m going to be doing a general Animal Crossing site at long last! Now to figure out how in the world this site is even going to work xD)
In the days since the release of Version 15, I’ve gone back and edited a few things here and there, such as:
- Fixed the “collapsing div overload” on the main page (many thanks to Lethe!)
- Tidied up the exits page with 12 all-new minimalist-aesthetic link buttons
- Featured the link buttons that went with each past layout on Disguises (here’s an example!)
- Fixed the visited link color on the links page (many thanks to Lethe again!)
Ahead for WithinMyWorld.Org during this summer (time permitting):
- Finish my in-progress Eighth Doctor site for the Construction Zone event at Amassment
- Revamp and rename my faith site (it will likely be relocated to a new subfolder as well)
Stay tuned right here or at @wmworg for the upcoming changes!
HOORAY!!! After months of puttering around behind the scenes, Version 15: Passionate Light is ready to view and explore!
Here’s some of the new sights to see:
- Main index
- About domain
- About me
- Network page
- Layout archive notes on version 15
- Exits page
- One sole page of links, now as a satellite to the exits page
- Affiliation/link exchanging is now handled with a single list of “esteemed colleagues”
- And of course, this updates log has gotten a matching facelift
consisting of me changing like 3 colors, because I’m lazy
Let me know what you think about version 15 in the comments or the guestbook! I’m really happy with it so far! (And as always, if something is displaying strangely on your machine, it’s a good bet that I have no idea it’s happening!! Currently v15 has been tested in the Windows versions of IE, Firefox, and Chrome.)
