After much deliberation and soul-searching (okay, more like apathy and frustration), I deleted and purged my Delicious and Livejournal accounts, so the Network page displays two less links. Two less profiles to keep up with, two less sites to update on slow-as-molasses internet. Also, two less things I have to update.
I got rid of the Delicious account because it took about 45 minutes to load just the start page on dialup, and I already have a Stumbleupon account, so I don’t really need two link-saving services. I got rid of my LJ because most of the people I followed on there are fairly inactive, and I don’t really blog about my everyday life anymore–at least, not in so many words. These days, there are Facebook statuses (stati?) for that.
I am contemplating, however, creating a personal Tumblr at some point, mainly to reblog interesting things I find on the Internets. Anything that’s not about my boring and repetitive life, or way too personal for my comfort, would be okay with me. 😛
I updated a couple of moved/closed fanlistings over at Captivations, and I plan to do a thorough review of all the FL links on there right before v13 goes live as well. Just want to make sure I’m linking to the right stuff! 😀
Also, I’m still working like a fiend behind the scenes of WMW.org here. I just finished a complete revamp of the Webmistress page last night, and I’m planning the same kind of revamp for the College Knowledge section as well, because I’m not really satisfied with the page layout in that section right now–it feels kinda cramped.
All that remains to be done, after the College Knowledge revamp, is to debug all the layouts (WMW.org itself, FL page, news blog, network, links), make sure they run in all the main browser types, and then–joy of joys!–v13 will be uploaded! *happy squee dance* 😀 Now here’s hoping I can actually DO this before June ends. LOL
After a 10-month wait, I’ve finally been able to move ahead with backend code and frontend design for WMW.org, as well as the look for the update blog. Now I just have to finish coding the fanlistings page and come up with design and code for the links page…LOL
Really enjoying getting back into web design. I didn’t realize how stifled I felt until I got a hard drive I could actually keep saving and re-saving to without fear of losing data. 😀 (But I’ll never let a hard drive failure catch me off-guard again–I’ve got a big external hard drive and 3 flash drives as backups now.)
Anyhow, keep your browsers tuned to WMW.org in the next month or so–v13 will be a big (and cool) change when it comes!
Though not much has changed on the ol’ domain, I swear I’m here. Real life and illness have been keeping me from working, as well as the lack of my own computer yet. :/ (I guess I’ll be going to get a new computer soonish, if only to have an internal hard drive of my own again.) Did I mention I’ve about had it with these headaches that feel like the side of my head’s been set on fire? They need to go AWAY.
…Annnnnnnnnnd I realllllly hate dialup. *shakes fist at corporations that won’t get off their butts to install fast access out here*
I’ve been keeping Crooked Glasses updated weekly, but that’s been the limit of what I could do most recently. My novel is being worked on, very very slowly (hard to write when I can’t think clearly), and the layouts for WMW.org are coming along well also (amid a couple of rethinking sessions and setbacks). I’ve actually got a very new style on the way–I think it’ll work better for how the domain’s been growing and changing–WMW isn’t such an infant anymore, and appears to have grown out of its baby clothes. 😛
Please continue to watch this space, as I battle the Headache Monster, the Real-Life Monster, and the Technology Monster. ^_^;
First, a great big welcome to OhMyDarling.org, our newest link exchange here at WMW.org. Go visit Sarah’s lovely domain (the Elliot Stabler fansite is my personal recommendation, but she has plenty more to see)!
Also, as you may have noticed from visiting the main page and from the sidebar to your right, I have discovered the magic of Twitter widgets. Thus, I’ve placed widgets on Crooked Glasses, WithinMyWorld.org, this little news page, and even Skies Over Atlas (the long-forgotten Twitter account I started with, lol).
Woot for actually getting stuff done around here! (Now I just need to prod myself to finish that one last article that needs spiffying in the College Knowledge section… -_- writer’s block FAIL.) 😛
Updated the front page of my site with a conspicuous link to my joined FLs and my sitemap, so it’s easier to browse around. 🙂
Not many more updates to speak of today, because I’ve had some life-splitting headaches the past two days and am scheduled for a CT scan tomorrow afternoon. I hope this one will finally help us figure out what’s wrong with my head. (Well, besides the obvious :P)
Oh, and WMW.org has a new link-exchange: rigelatin.net! Wave hi 🙂 I am glad, since my .net section was looking rather bereft (one of my oldest .net link exchanges closed a few weeks back). Go and enjoy the awesome artwork Rosangela does on her sites!
So, the pre-payment for the data recovery job is in place. Now, the real waiting begins, to see whether the poor damaged hard drive can give up its secrets before it truly becomes scrap metal and plastic.
Also, I’ll be making a few edits to the site here and there today and tomorrow as I can. I received a complaint from a visitor that they couldn’t find my fanlisting link or my network link, so I need to make those more visible, I guess. And I still need to edit the College Knowledge content. LOL, been saying that for a month or more, but sickness and RL stuff always manages to stick its butt into my business.
Wishing all my visitors a safe and happy new year–have fun but don’t get too wild, lol. 🙂
Also, check out the new blog posts at Crooked Glasses–I just completed my Christmas Glassics week, recapping all the posts I’ve made since July 2011. Great way to ring in 2012! ^_^
Found this website, thanks to browsing around several other domains who had “radios” on their sites. It looks pretty sweet–I’ll have to figure out how to work it, but I’m closer to the dream of a listen-able radio on WMW.org than ever. WOOT WOOT WOOT
[off topic] No news yet about my dead/fried hard drive. :c Still praying!
Mostly inspired by the radio at Fenali.net, I’ve been thinking about making my own radio for WithinMyWorld.org, since I love music very much and I have a wide and eclectic taste in music.
Not really sure how to go about it, though. I did find a cool site called Blip.fm, which makes your own Internet radio, so I might try that out in the next couple of days. If that doesn’t work out like I think it should…well, Google and Bing might direct me towards some answers. ^_^
