Blogging Through the Years (and a Giveaway!)

On October 19, 2001, I launched my very first webpage. It looked like this:

Back in the day, this would be a decently sized screenshot.

Let’s see, I used frames and Times New Roman. I’m pretty sure I had a totally unnecessary inline frame somewhere in there too. And of course, I had a fancy visitor counter. 😜 There was absolutely no content besides a blurb about Cardcaptor Sakura which was my favorite anime at the time.

I remember showing my webpage to my best friend, and her reaction was the equivalent of today’s “cool story bro.” But you know what? Read more…

Life Lately: Little Memories

On February 15th, I wrote this on Little Memory:

Had a chill day today. Nothing much happened and that’s a-okay.

… and that pretty much sums up life lately. The problem with being more considerate with what you share online is, you come to realize there isn’t much else to share. Relationships?

I didn’t have a lot of time to make a large set, so here’s my humble collection of crocheted items for Valentine’s Day! Read more…

My Favorite Things: February 2016

Happy February and welcome to another round of My Favorite Things, the linkup for all things wonderful. My partner-in-crime Eirene will be hosting this month so head on over to her blog and tell us what you love!

Following the reflection of how I approach social media, I’ve rearranged the way I consume content online into something more structured. I have also redirected my need to log everything I do into something a bit more useful.

Instapaper

Instapaper was sitting in my phone without much use, but I’ve decided to give it another try to save articles I wanted to read at a later time. Read more…
