I did quite a bit of work around here this morning!
I realized a few weeks ago that my categories and tags were in a sorry state, and so I flipped them around; now, site updates are tagged with their names/topics, and updates are listed in categories according to what kind of updates they are (affiliates, new sites, cleanups, link exchanges, closed sites, revamps, etc.). I also got rid of the silly/ridiculous tags to make it less of a pain to browse.
I hope this will make it easier to find posts and enjoy! (And as always, comment below if you see anything strange code-wise!)
Check out the new look of Disguises, the layout archive for WithinMyWorld.org!
I’ve gone through and tidied up the site immensely, adding more layout trivia and facts, deleting errors, and beautifying the existing Bootstrap theme (which I had so inexpertly styled before, LOL). Now it’s truly a beautiful archive to explore.
(Bonus: when you visit, you might be able to help solve a mystery! Can you discern which serif font I used on version 7?)
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!! 😀
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)
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 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!)
I went through my Projects page and realized that I kind of over-scheduled myself this fall. So, I went through and rearranged, making the page not quite so ambitious–but I’m still going to be releasing a site roughly each month! It’s just that now, my list of sites to do extends far into 2016.
Here are some of the new projects I added:
- Bingbong (Inside Out) – December 2015
- The Eighth Doctor (Doctor Who) – May 2016
- Super Mario RPG (possible) – February 2016
- Waiting for God (possible) – April 2016
Be on the lookout for these! (Dates may change a bit as life happens, but these sites will happen at some point!! LOL)
YES! After four long years of staring at my noobish WordPress layout over on my blog, Crooked Glasses, I finally bit the bullet and switched the theme to the prepackaged Twenty Fifteen look, editing only a few colors and widgets to get it the way I wanted.
The FAQ and Links pages have been cleaned up and reworded to feel more professional. I’m also using an Archive widget instead of a custom page now, and I got rid of my feeble attempt at an Article Series page because I really don’t have any idea how to make it work anyway. ^o^
…And now I officially win the “Super Lazy Designer” Award! YAY!!! ROFL
My “Contact,” “Affiliate,” and “Link-Exchange” pages have finally been edited and combined into one tidy single-page site: my Exits page! Give it a look-see! 😀
Also, I still am working behind the scenes on stuff in my projects list…it’s just been a weirdddd few months. ^_^;
I’ve moved the domain info page to its own little folder–check it out!
(I’m doing this in preparation for version 15, which may or may not appear this year ^_^; )
