So for the first time in nearly seven years I officially have a website. An extremely ugly website, admittedly, but that is largely by design - honest! Regardless, it's definitely a website and, crucially, not a Tumblog, Tweetfeed or anything else vaguely "social media" related. Nope, this is just some HTML and CSS that I wrote, on a server I paid for, found via a URL that I decided on.
In a very digital sense, this is real. Somewhere I can do what I want, write what I want, code how I want. I guess that's kind of a big deal.
