More specifically, what i thought about when making this website
The reason this website exists
I just haven't found a place online that i felt like i could really make my own to crosslink, organize and display whatever i wanted so i thought fuck it i'll make it myself.
Maybe i haven't found that place for lack of trying but why should finding that platform be harder than making it myself like come on the year is 2021 as i'm typing this.
make it all from scratch, none of that premade template wordpress *this video was sponsored by* corporate waaay-too-squeaky-clean lookin ass look
i was starting to use the internet more while yahoo was a relevant company/brand beyond its answers, so i suppose i'm partially fueled by my nostalgia for a time when running into a scuffed diy website was more common than it is now
don't get me wrong i have no problems with websites that look like some rich dude's mansion and have animations that move like a space jellyfish through butter, some of them look very cool but that's not the look i want to go for
usable for people who strictly avoid nonfree software
do not track flags on all thirds party widgets i embed
other stuff i'll look into as it comes up
i spend a lot of time typing thoughts i have into a text editor with typewritery monospace consolas/courier new lookin font so yeah
i like black, blue and some white because a lot of my stuff is blue, black is easy on the eyes and white is a high contrast from the other two and well fuck now i look like i ripped the color combo from twitter/github/musescore
needs to be easy to expand upon or change
early on i thought i could get away with copypasting my "banner" and navbar into every .html but i kept making more .htmls and realised well shit this is gonna be a nightmare to replace if i need to :")
