I opened a fanlisting for Ethel Cain yesterday (which just so happened to be exactly three years since I started my fanlisting collective). I've been obsessing over her music since September of last year so I figured I'd make a tribute to her and the Preacher's Daughter album. Then I thought, why not just go all the way and open a fanlisting as well? It's called Daughters of Cain, naturally.
I can't believe it's been almost three years since I've updated this! Yikes.
The good news is that I have new layouts on Cybersleep and In Rainbows! They were made from the same template so it wasn't too much work. I'm just getting back into the swing of things so I will try more ambitious things at another time. Well, technically RX Queen also has a new layout, but that's been there for a good while (two years haha).
My personal site, RX Queen, finally has a new layout! After working on a few domain layouts I was burned out on ideas, but I am finally starting to make some headway again. This is my first time using my own graphic on the index page of the site so I was a little nervous putting it up but I think it came out pretty cool. I started making graphics again last summer and I think I'm slowly improving on each project despite trying different things.
Second, I have officially started four fanlistings, which can be found on the owned page of my In Rainbows fanlisting collective. The subjects are Deftones (my favorite band ever), In This Moment, Love Exposure (awesome Japanese film) and Jackie Burkhart from That 70's Show. Oh, and so far I'll just mention that only Jackie's fanlisting is actually up on thefanlistings.org, so it's currently the only one that has members haha.
Finally, I think I will continue working on Loveless.nu, thanks to finding out about Primavera, which is a Spring layout revamp marathon started by Northstar.nu. It's given me a reason to come back and try to finish what I half-heartedly started haha. Hopefully, the finished product will be something worth entering.
I decided to redo the look of my whole site! I like the way it came out even though it has been repurposed from different projects from my personal site (RX Queen) and the tumblr theme I made. I was really struggling to decide what to do with the look and this came together pretty nicely. Plus, I like the idea of keeping my main collective simple and clean (shoutout to Utada Hikaru).
Also, I set up this php blog page from Chronica (linked at the bottom) which was super easy and a good way to keep track of network updates (if I actually remember to do so). Getting the layout to match the rest of the site was really easy as well. I made a php guestbook (as opposed to the free one I use on my personal site), but it's not totally formatted the way I want it so I'm not linking it yet.
