After some thought, I'm bringing back my blog in 2019. I'm still on Dreamwidth and the other locations listed below, although Tumblr is going away after collectively shitting the bed over adult material. Basically, I'm going to work out some cross-posting api bullshit with my Dreamwidth journal. Either way, keep watching this space in 2019!
I ran a Ronin Warriors/Samurai Troopers fansite at this domain from 2000 until 2001 or '02, got a separate domain for that site (no, I'm not re-registering it) then tried the whole "collective" website/blogging bullshit around 2002 until the end of 2005 when I decided to put a bullet in its head and get a new domain name to defile. Looking through the Internet Wayback Machine — oh man, did I write some stupid shit or what? Hey, I was young and it was a phase. I was growing up. You're not grown even in your 20s, as I've been learning over the years. Sometimes, we never grow up — I sure as fuck haven't.
Online, I go by the name "Ardath k'Sheyna", but IRL I'm one lazy-as-fuck web developer residing in the greater Twin Cities area. Well, actually I'm not lazy. I work pretty hard most of the time to justify my laziness in other areas. To be honest, running shitty fansites is what got me started on a lucrative career path.
Because why not? After I let the domain go, it got picked up by those shitty spam-domain whatever they're called people and then it became a spam site for a few years. I recently noticed that the domain was available again two years ago but decided "nah, that time is dead". However, I had a change of heart and decided "eh, why not?"
As for what I'm actually going to do with this space? I don't know yet. I might let it go again in two years, or I might not. I may turn it into a portal for my non-professional/fun-to-do work like my artwork, writing, and coding experiments. I could turn it into a public-facing blog. Or I could leave it as is.
Umm, how about fuck no. That part of my life really is dead. It's deader than a doornail, and I intend to make sure it stays dead even if I have to nuke it from orbit.
