Sooo, here we are. I am so excited about this small web / bespoke internet / etc. phenomenon, and people's creativity here blows me away. I, however, am struggling a bit with deciding on a visual theme¹, and a screen name², and what kind of pages I want to make, and how much personal information I want to put here. When I first got ~the internet~, around 1999, even telling people your real name was a big no-no (well, at least for me I guess, I was a child), and I kind of want to go back to that.
I aim for this website to be a cool place to explore at your own pace. Nothing more, nothing less.
¹It's been a while since I wrote this, I decided on having all the visual themes at once and I struggle no more
²I don't think I'm changing it at this point. I hate the pressure of choosing a username so I just used what I call one of my cats sometimes.
current goals for this site:
- set things up to update the site through the neocities api OR get a supporter account and do ftp
- find way to share playlists without youtube/spotify embeds
- make a credits / resources page
- make a flash games recommendations page
- make a desktop ui-like page
- make an html/css tips page? maybe?
- make an art gallery page?
- make a bunch more pages
- add section with the covers of my favorite albums to music page
- organize files
- make a neocities links page
- make an internet memories page
- make a music page
