I’ve been working in the background trying to get a few things updated but also try and add a few things. However, there has been some pretty drastic changes in my personal life that have kept me from here. I don’t usually share this url with anyone, but if you are curious what my offline life has been like, please visit watermia.org. Just please, give me the same respect I give you about sharing offline information.
Anyways, enough on that. I have made a few changes with the domain. Aftermath has a new layout. I recently learned how to code CSS Grid and use a responsive navigation. I am slowly converting all of my sites to CSS Grid so that they will be responsive. Aftermath is the fourth layout ot receive it. Coco was the first on the domain, but mainly my second attempt. My blog was my first attempt and success. Her Melody, a fanlisting for Terra’s theme received a redo also. It is the third layout to become responsive, but it has also moved homes.
I am still working in the background on some pretty big projects, but those will remain a secret for a while. Till next time, enjoy the changes.
I’ve been really bad at keeping my update page up to date. Anyways, shattered memories received a few new additions since the last main update.
Galactic Protection is my dedication to the Metroid Series. It is also the approved fanlisting. This was a shrine that I was working on for almost 4 months. I wanted to tell people about it, but this series isn’t quite popular like the other games. However, it is favorite of mine and I believe my site shows my dedication.
Aftermath received two new fanlistings that I adopted from Destinie. I adopted the Liepard fanlisting which is located at Beautifully Ruthless and the Purrloin fanlisting which can be found at Deviously Perfect. I also updated all the fanlistings with the members that were pending. Majority of the fanlistings had no change while some had either one or two people join.
Lastly, I worked on a revamp for my Terra shrine. It had been over ten years since I created the second layout for that site. It was truly needed of a new layout and updated information. To have this done, I decided to participate in the Amassment’s Shrine Revamp Event. I wasn’t sure how long this was going to take me, but overall I am very satisfied how it work. Terra’s shrine was moved to a new url, but still has the same name. You can find it at Last Ray of Hope.
shattered memories new design
Shattered Memories received an overhaul lately. I was debating whether to go ahead and put the new layout up or not, but I seem to find time around my daughter to work on some sites. Anyways, the domain layout has been reworked from head to toe. I added a new affiliate and even some new link-exchanges. If you care to link-exchange with me, go ahead contact me somehow. I plan to bring some other updates to projects, but those are being reworked at the moment and with having an almost one year old, my time is very limited. Plus, these next two years, I have some major events happening that I really need to concentrate on. I will continue to keep everything else updated, and here and there, you might actually see something new happen.
The layout was something that I was just messing around with. I still wanted to do iframes, but not my normal iframe. Once I saw the image of Lunafreya from Final Fantasy XV, I knew it was the perfect image to use. As much as I loved my old layout, I thought it was time for a change. Hope all the links work and everyone enjoys the new look.
New layout and Hibernation Mode
Shattered Memories has been placed on Hibernation Mode. Along with that, there is a new layout up for the site. The previous layout didn’t last long for I was in a huge debate on how to announce the hibernation. As stated before, I recently gave birth to my daughter, Leah, on August 7th 2016. As of right now, she is 2 months old. Time is very minimal for me. I barely have time to do what I usually like to do online that I know web designing will be much harder. I need to spend more time with my daughter. She needs me more than my sites do. I promise to return. I just don’t know when. When she starts crawling, my computer time will be drastically cut. As of right now, she sits near me, but I shouldn’t have her there all the time. She needs interaction from her mommy, and I cannot do that with my sites constantly needing me. I still love my sites and don’t want to leave the world of web altogether. I just need to balance my time better. Till I return, the domain is in hibernation mode and will remain that way. I am still available online through email and twitter if anyone wants to chat. I will still browse my normal forums. I just won’t have anything new. Till I return!
Shattered Memories finally has a new layout. I took a hibernation/hiatus due to the fact I was pregnant and was planning to have my daughter soon. She arrived on August 7th, and it was a pretty rocky start to adjust to everything with having a newborn around. Now, she is a month old and I have found time to actually work on a few things. The new layout features a princess from my favorite video game: Legend of Zelda. And, if you cannot guess the princess, it is Princess Zelda herself. I finally got a copy of the manga and I decided to scan some images and mash them, leaving some of the text. Well, the text was in English. I found an original to take the Japanese text. Anyways, I hope you like the new layout.
Update Post for SM.Org
As you can tell, the domain has went into a hibernation mode. I’ve talked about what has been happening on my personal journal and through Amassment once or twice, but I have never really mention anything about it here. In December 2015, I found out I was pregnant again. Right now, I am about 35 weeks pregnant. I am due on August 8th. I know that there is a possiblity that I can continue to work on my domain and keep everything updated, but once my little girl is here, I don’t know how much I will be able to do.
That is the reason for this update. There is a new layout on the domain, but as I said, it is temporary. I want to return, but I have to see how everything goes. From this day till my due date, she can come any time. I need to make sure I am taking care of myself, and I have to admit. Trying to think of a new layout is getting a little stressful especially when I am trying to create ones for my business site.
If you are curious about the sites that I need to update, they are still active. I will be around to make sure fanlistings are up to date. My TCG site will stay active till I have her and then it will be put on hiatus till I can return. I hope once I get everything organized and she has a pretty good schedule, I will be able to return with some new ideas.
This hibernation has been planned for quite a while. Occasionally, I keep thinking about archiving the whole domain. Don’t get me wrong. I love my domain. I’ve had it for over 12 years. I cannot give it up. However, designing new layouts and keeping things new here is starting to take a drag on me. I am hoping that with this hibernation mode, I will be able to come back with something new and more inspiration.
I probably won’t update much here at this site, but if you are friend on twitter, you will know more details when my due date comes. If you want to chat, you can also contact me by email. Till I return, enjoy!
