Happy Birthday to Aigoo-Chamna.net!
Seven years since its birth. Eight years since I owned a domain. Why does time fly? Honestly, I can’t believe I’m still doing this after all these years. One would think I’d have stopped and quit years ago since I can be fickle like that, but I guess with this, I’m not as fickle as I thought! Though I do feel like I come from a dinosaur-era. Then I wonder if those who have been on the internet since 1990s would feel like they are from the Big Bang era. Hmmm.
Since this is a special day, I decided to put up a new layout to go along with this occasion. A couple of months ago, I asked my friend to draw something similar to the picture on top of the profile. My friend drew it, capturing my essence, and after I saw the image, I deduced that it needed to be made into a layout. I made the header on Monday night. Then from Tuesday to Thursday evenings and some mornings, I coded the layout, played around with the CSS coding, experimented with textured backgrounds and colours, and finally came up with this on Thursday evening. To be honest, I think this was the longest I’ve spent time on a layout O_O;; Normally, I do it in one sitting for about five hours. This time, I think ten or more hours were dedicated to it.
At least I do like the end results. I think the artwork does capture me (when I’m happy XD) and the name I picked for the layout fits since I do like listening to medley pieces, and my list of hobbies is quite diverse . . . making me a very “medley” person. Mucho gracias are given to Ivy for giving me designing and coding consultations. Plus, she influenced me into trying a layout that’s emphasising on serif typography, and I decided Cambria is the next best thing after Georgia. :D
Well, I hope the rest of you guys like it!
