Putting my time where my happy is
A month ago, Manda posted one of her link love posts1 like usual, and in it was a link to a post about putting your money where your happy is. This post gave me a new look on some of the things I do. Unfortunately I have to continue to go four days a week to see my allergist for my allergy shots until June, but the time that I spend at home is being spent the way I want to spend it (to an extent).
I’m on the TCG forums less, because they caused me a lot of stress and were a bit difficult to constantly keep up with. Yesterday I put Capture on hiatus, because I just don’t have the motivation to do something that is currently stressing me out. It’s probably going to be static until July or so.
I’m going to start focusing more on my blog again, because that makes me happy. I’m also playing with CSS again like I used to, spending hours and hours at a time to make something that I love. I finally got around to customizing my Dunked profile since they recently launched to something that I can at least live with, only to realize the background was still
white blinding. In doing so, I made a CSS3 triangle, but as the window was made shorter and whatnot, the triangle didn’t change in size. I spent 15 minutes making a triangle in PSP9 and making it transparent. I then had the epiphany that I have given myself a logo that I add to my websites as a mere signature without even realizing it, thus doing what I once said I would never do: brand myself.
In case you didn’t see on Twitter, I now have 9 domains. Two of them are for Hope Fades and Abuse Aloud, so I like to personally think that they aren’t really a part of my official domain count. Sometimes I wonder if Hope Fades is actually worth keeping when I look at that list, though. Isn’t it? It’s just some simple website with a simple layout featuring a random positive phrase via a simple PHP rotation, yet I put it up on a pedestal as if it’s this grand thing and couldn’t get anymore special.
I bought allergicliza.me. It’s not my first choice, and I don’t love-love it, but it fits, right? I wanted a-free.me, for allergy-free me, but the dash bugged me. Allergicliza.me is long in size. Mel suggested it, and Hiro mentioned something about it being kind of like Godzilla, and I like little dinosaur illustrations, so I figured that once Mel’s done with my chibi self that I could request a dinosaur illustration of some sort that could be used to represent the domain.
I did have some help with suggestions, though. I hope to learn to love it. I mean, three years later from registering 6birds I learned to love it, right? It’s possible.
Foodallergy.pw is also mine. It was available, cheap, and perhaps the .PW TLD will benefit me later on.
And last but not least, while I will be designing the layout for my upcoming blog, I won’t be designing the one for 6birds. :p I think I have a cute idea for that. :p The first entry on the new theme (whenever THAT happens) will explain why I will no longer be designing my blog’s themes.
- I love these because I find new blogs to read! ↩
