|on the web.|
All time is time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I've said before, bugs in amber.

I started my first website in early 1999 when I signed up with Earthlink. Along with the ISP service, they
gave out a whopping 6MB of webspace so my brother and I decided to start a personal website (which is thankfully nonexistent today... so frightening). It started as a click 'n build
site, but began to learn HTML as my brother lost interest.
After a while, I decided to start a Buffy website since I loved the show so much, and Much Ado About Buffy the Vampire Slayer was born.
The site was pretty pathetic in terms of content and the graphics were either nonexistent or extremely lame, but I worked hard and managed to build up the site and started learning how to create graphics using good old Paint Shop Pro.
Though my graphics were pretty terrible, I was happy with them and I became more confident about the site.
I continued developing my skills, and getting better as the software improved (yay Photoshop!) and kept opening new websites and new fanlistings. Working part-time definitely gave me a lot of free time to work on websites but once I started working full-time
my interest and free time dropped. I don't work on websites much now, other than to just update the remaining fanlistings and I have, but I'd like to keep my websites up as long as I can, even if they're not changing much. It's a fun part of my history that I
definitely don't want to lose... at least not yet. Here's what's left of my web presence:
I've become really interested in photography in recent years and though my skills are definitely that of an amateur, I love sharing my photos on Flickr and
Instagram, and those are updated much more frequently than this site.
