About Website & Current Layout
Prior to blogging, I kept paper diaries because Anne Frank was one of my inspirations. In 2001, I discovered blogging, and from there I’ve enjoyed sharing my life online and making blogger friends with similar interests. Below is my blogging history:
- August 15, 2001: Bought hosting from Dreamhost and opened up my first domain, which was a collective.
- September 4, 2001: Opened up my first blog, Psychomaniatic Dreams, which was hand-coded and operated on Greymatter.
- August 15, 2002: Purchased Aigoo-Chamna.net and moved my blog to that domain without transferring 367 entries from PD.
- January 2004: Closed my collective domain to combine with Aigoo-Chamna.net.
- December 2004: Changed my CMS from Greymatter to WordPress.
- July 31, 2015: Purchased Aigoo.me.
- June 26, 2016: Transferred blog from Aigoo-Chamna.net to Aigoo.me.
The current layout is Version 26: “The Modern Novel” — featuring artwork by my friend, Trolleys. I had the lovely Raisa design a theme that’s responsive. I really like the minimalistic feel of the layout, and I am so pleased by the end result!
