Some NewsEllie Sunday, 12:10pm CDT
Hello. So basically, as much as I am a curmudgeon and will always hate "mainstream" web2.0 web design and stuff, I figure if what I want to do with the site is offer cool stuff to people, make it a thing people appreciate, and encourage some kind of "community" (ugh), I should make things more "engaging".
While I have had a lot of love and support that I appreciate on the various incarnations of the site, I also know the experience that many of us have: the phenomenon of thinking a site is cool but then never actually visiting it regularly or doing much on it. I can't begrudge anyone of it, because I do it to with some of my "favorite" websites.
It is partly because of bad internet habits on the part of visitors, but also equally a result of the website itself lacking anything to keep people coming back and kind of just existing as a weird little abandoned shrine. Shrines are cool, but not if nobody visits them to pay respects, you know?
Anyway, I will maybe post some more things here and there. Just feel like this makes the homepage a bit more presentable. I shall also let folks know to check out my personal site ↗️, and also to contact me (email@example.com) if you have any ideas. For now, I think I'll just put some of the old stuff from "News&Resources" on the posts below.
Thanks for stopping by! - ellie
