Today was a bit slower with the updates, though that was more due to going through photos of my now deceased pets. I’ve uploaded a bunch of ‘shorts’ to Youtube, as well as added more blog posts from Facebook. The last being Daisy’s final days with us. Hopefully next week I’ll make more progress, but for now, I’m going to go take care of my mental health. I think I’ve earned it.
Its been an interesting a productive day today. I managed to get chapters 1 through 10 of MAQ #041 uploaded to the comics page. Going through the old pages definitely opened up a lot of emotions. When I started that comic, I was HEAVILY influenced by the shojo anime and manga of the time period. Looking back through it, I’m almost embarrassed by how goofy the comic could be at times. Chapter 10 is entirely 100% fan service that has not aged well. Even so, I learned so much while making the comic. Even if it is never finished, it was important to me for over 10 years as I kept working on it.
Next week I’ll get the rest of the chapters. At some point, I’m going to sit down and write out where I wanted the rest of the story to go in order to give it a little closure.
Pretty significant update today: I’ve gotten quite a bit of the artwork re-uploaded! At least up 2020. Slowly, the gallery there is coming together how I want it. Now that I know how I want it organized it’ll go faster. Considering that I’ve set aside 5 hours a week purely to work on the website, it’ll all get uploaded soon! I really want to have Maq#041 to be uploaded, so I may work on that next week. I know there are a lot of old readers who’ve asked about it.
And that’s it for January! I think we’ve made some good progress here. Lets hope that I can keep it up during February!
Today is a good day for our household. Today marks the official ‘gotcha’ day for Missy B, now renamed to Piper! Turns out, we were her family all along! We just returned from the Humane Society (with poor Piper getting sick all over my backseat), and now we’re home and safe!
Welcome home, Piper 😀
One of the things I started last year after the death of my old dog was to open my home and foster dogs from the local Humane Society. So far, I’ve taken in three dogs, and all three were adopted! I took a break during December, but after returning from my trip, I decided it was time to go get number 4!
Meet Missy B!
Well, it took several hours of tinkering, because WordPress is about as stable and well put together as wet tissue paper, but I can now update with my mobile device. This will allow me a little more versatility when managing this place.
I’ve also started my new project of transferring Facebook memories I wish to keep onto this site. I’ve got reminders to check every day that I can, and I’ve set aside some time every week to work on this site. My hope is to get all of Maq #041 uploaded and readable by the end of the month.
Keep checking back! We’re going to be updating way more often nowadays!!
New year, new goals! My hope is to start updating here more, so that I can have a place on the internet that is mine and not social media. This is my home, where I’ll keep all the things that mean something to me.
Yes, I know! Somehow, after all this time, I’m still here. With the recent issues with various social media sites (ie just about ALL OF THEM), I felt it wasn’t a bad idea to start working on my personal site again. While not the best for mobile use nor the most elegant of sites, it’s mine and isn’t at risk of getting wiped out because some random billionaire gets bored and thinks its funny to destroy the social media site I’ve been using for years to showcase my art,writing, and personal thoughts.
So what’s new? Not too much. I’ve been very, VERY slowly adding a few new blog posts with pictures from my Facebook memories, since I don’t really use Facebook much anymore. However, there’s decades of information there I’d rather not lose, so my hope, for the new year, is to log in every day if 2024 and transfer over whatever images, memories, or blog posts I feel are important to preserve. With luck, if I can keep up with it, I’ll be able to completely close down my Facebook and never use it again. Its gotten so bad lately that I’m actually missing Live Journal and MySpace.
As far as site content, I’m sure long-time visitors of my work have noticed a stunning lack of any artwork. This year, I think I’ve doodled maybe five pieces, and finished NONE. Artwork just isn’t happening anymore, and I’ve made my peace with it. Maybe someday I’ll draw again, but until then, I’m content to just write. As far as writing goes, my series are still going! A Daedra Named Desire is on short-term hiatus while I plan out the final act, and I’ve got a new romantic comedy about the biblical apocalypse gone wrong. Be on the lookout for the first draft getting posted real soon!
So fostering has gone well. Maybelline, Buddy (now Koda), and Autumn (now Kirby) have all found forever homes!
I also managed to write par every day for Nanowrimo.
November was a good month! Let’s hope December goes as well!!
She’s hard to get pictures of, since she’s running everywhere and sniffing everything, but say hello to our newest foster dog, Autumn!!
