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
a depression information site
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.!
Today I updated the design for my links page, as well as fixing a bit on my main page!
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:
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:
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.)
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!
I cleaned up and revamped my sad little link list, transforming it into Egress–lots more fun to visit, lots easier to click through! Now there are three main categories for links (“Play,” “Use,” and “Explore”), and there shouldn’t be any more broken links for at least a few days. LOL
(Many thanks also go to my Amassment buddy Lethe for helping me debug the layout when it was being failtastic! XD)
Been puttering around the domain
while aggressively procrastinating on cleaning my house! Here’s a list of what’s been updated:
Be sure to check all these out, and also keep an eye out for new sites coming in 2016! (Also, exclamation points are awesome!! LOL)
I finally fixed up the appearance of my network page (where I list all the sites on withinmyworld.org), with the help of Dubiousdisc of Rigelatin.net! I posted a “design challenge” of sorts over at Amassment to help me get unstuck from my design rut, and she graciously provided some inspiration. If you’re looking for an awesome webdesign community, Amassment is the place to be!
(While I was busy fixing up the design, I also realized I had never uploaded info for my most recent shrine, Lux Perpetua, so I added that in, too! Bonus!)
