Okay, so I started to post here on the first of the month. Nice job, Nik! LOL. Nah, I didn't quite finish it. But there were some extenuating circumstances, after all! I wrote it once and then lost the damned thing. So whatta ya expect? ROFL.
Anyway, that entry is below.
Meanwhile, I haven't done much to add to the webby anyway since then...
So check it out and let me know what you guys think, okay? Cool.
November 1, 2004
So basically I started a huge post at around 3:30 a.m.
Sometimes I really hate LJ. Especially when I've written something for ages and it gets eaten. Yikes.
I'm going to try and reconstruct what I was saying, but I don't know if I'll remember all of it... LOL.
I've been spending a bunch of time (when I can find it) working on my webby. The paid version, that is--not the free one. In fact, I don't really even remember where the heck the free one is! LOL. It might be a GeoCities site, but I've forgotten. (And seeing as I never did do a damn thing with it, it's kind of like 'whatev.' LOL.)
As for my real webby, it's finally ready to be unveiled to my friends! Here's the addy: nk-seashore.com
Okay, personally I'm really happy with how it turned out!
Yeah, yeah, 'humble' me, as always. Whatev. I put some time and work into it and am not gonna act like it wasn't hard for me to reason it out, cuz it was! At one point I had it pretty messed up, in the early 'lay out' stages.
Here's the coooool part! (Hope you're reading this Kev. If not, I'll have to email you and have you read!!!) I didn't use a software to do it. I did it by writing out the code, which was pretty interesting. I'd never really done that before. (I think I used like Netscape Composer when I was doing the free webby, but I'm not sure. I can't recall right now.)
No, (Kev) I haven't tried to see it the pages are valid code or any of that junk. First of all, I haven't had time to do that! LOL. My focus has been to get everything working, first! (Actually, that's partly a lie. I validate the HTML and CSS for just the index/Home page. It's cool that it validates just great! LOL.)
So, I've got my fic up. (Most of it, anyway.) Including my latest Alexander the Great one-of-one and my current LotR vampire fic (that FJ talked me into). Yeah, I'm still in touch with FJ fatjoey. In fact, he even betaed for me! Cool, huh? (Thanks, FJ, if you're reading this!)
I've used good old Blogger to set up an updates/news page--and to have a 'rants' page. (Which is basically a place for me to say whatev is on my mind. And as you guys know, I love to go on and on about that junk! ROFL.)
Then I added Freefind.com (a free search engine). It was fascinating to set it up to 'match' my site. And to set up 'excludes' (which just means telling it what not to search! LOL.
For that matter, it was interesting setting up 'templates' (code templates, as opposed to fic templates) for my two blogger pages. I just wanted everything to basically match the overall design. It turned out pretty nice, I think. (Yeah, yeah. My ego is waaaay out there. Like you didn't know that already? LMAO.)
If you want me to link your webby--and you're willing to link me back--just let me know! I'm probably gonna add a totally separate page for any additional links--beyond what I've currently got. I was kinda stupid and didn't realize I might want more than are there right now... (Typical.)
Here's the crappy part of the site! Right now if I change my navigation, then I have to edit every single page of the site. Yikes. Yeah, that sucks big time. I've already changed the navigation a couple of times, so I know it can be a bear to do it...
So, Evamaria shirasade, yesterday when I went to 'Slashy BSB Goodness,' I discovered my link for it was wrong! And that's after I've linked it on every page of my site. ROFL. (Yeah, like I said above, the navigation requires rewriting pages...) So I'm thinking I'll leave it. It's not like people can't follow the link and find it... (You'll see I've linked you twice. That's because I had no clue which site you'd want linked more or whatev. So I figured, 'what the heck' and did both. LOL.) Are you cool with that?
Okay, so obviously I'd love to have my friends with webbys (webbies?) link me. I promise to link you back, of course! Grab one of my coooool little banners (seriously, they're nice and small) and add me up--okay?
Well, that's it for now.
