I posted about the first step in making my scrapbook. I have loads of scraps that have been ready for ages to be used. Since my archives project is now at a standstill (still can’t find my notebook!) I’m turning to different projects for a while! (Maybe if I’m not looking for it, it will show up?)
Well it’s up! You can find it in my history section – yes it is very basic, and I have no idea who owns half the images on the page – I did put a note on the home page stating I didn’t know who to credit. It seems like a lot of the places I got my images from are no longer on the web
Don’t expect much of it – its basic and it was my first experience with building a web page – I used Microsoft front page (this is what set me up for learning html) ENJOY!!!
So, today I found a website that someone had recovered from GeoCities (which closed down in 2009). This inspired me to look for my own website in the archives – I haven’t had any luck with that yet. However, on my quest I decided to look for my old sketch pad which I used to design one of my GeoCities websites before I made it into a website. I haven’t found that either.
While I was looking for it I turned my attention to an old box, which I haven’t touch for ages – when I opened it I thought I must be breathing in toxic fumes…such a foul awful smell! But I did uncover a few CD’s which are back up’s from my old computers. I turfed out a handful of them onto my bed so I could look underneath them – then noticing that I had been gone a while I went back to my computer. I’m surprised I didn’t make the connection there and then! It took me ages to realise that there could be something of interest on these CD’s.
The first CD didn’t work, but the second one I tried did..and amazingly was full of hamtaro stuff – and with that hamtaro stuff was the first ever website I made, which never made it as far as the web. Looking at it – some parts don’t work the same as I remember but its still amazing that I found this and all this time had assumed it was lost forever. I’m working on restoring old websites for memories – this is making memories after all – it’s how the name came about!! I’m going to restore this website and finally put it on the web – yes it will be awfully basic and nothing like this website I have now…but it seems right that 12 years after the website was created it will finally make it’s first appearance on the internet!
I made this website when I was 11 – yes the date is 2001 – which is another amazing discovery because I was sure I was 12 not 11! I have since updated my history section to reflect the true story! I know this seems very trivial for some, but it’s opened up a lot of history for me. Expect to see it up on making memories soon!
I’ve been adding a lot of things to my website in the last couple of days.
I added some new characters to my about me section. I added a section about the process I went through to make my MLP character. I added my Hamtaro collection, a Hamtaro dress up game and scene maker using game sprites. All of these things still need to be worked on and updated.
I’m going to just focus on these for now, but I’ve thought of a few more things I may or may not add later. I want to finish the ones I have started first, though.← Older Entries
