Hey what's up! Looks like you want to see what I'm tinkering with on Mycorrhiza's Space. I've made this page in part because I've seen other people with their own changelogs and I figured if that's the way to do things I should probably as well. But also it's yet another excuse to keep me consistent with touching and playing around with HTML and CSS so that I don't get rusty.
Note: I'm getting to making this changelog March 29, 2023 so filling in anything that I've done between now and when I first activated my website will be a bit vague in the date department. I hope to keep this consistently updated from here on out though.
November 26, 2023 - I built myself a sort of knock off linktree. This is mainly so I have something I can add to the sparse social media accounts I barely use. I made this in 2 hours and learned how to do even more neat stuff with CSS so it is worth a mention in my changelog. I also learned how to allow commentors to add a link to their websites to their comments. HTML comment box continues to rock, honestly.
October 30, 2023 - I finally got the gallery page up for my Earthshine OCs!! You click on the images in the responsive grid and they take you to separate pages that also contain my notes and thoughts on the piece. Sometimes one piece in the responsive grid will go to a page with many pieces in it, since some of them are part of a set. Only a few of the pieces in the grid go to separate pages right now, but I will be filling the rest out over the next couple of weeks as well as adding new pieces that I still have stashed away on my computer. I'm so happy I have this done! I can't wait to get to some more gallery pages in the coming months :)
October 9, 2023 - I added a couple of 88x13px link back buttons for my site to the bottom of my links page. Just a little update, but it feels big to me since this I feel like I'm truly inducting myself into the indie web by making link back buttons of my own.
June 3, 2023 - Made a new blog post! RSS feed continues to work! Yay! Also learned about HTML Comment Box and I'm testing it out on my blog to see how it works. I appreciate the simplicity of it.
April 23, 2023 - Added a Reading Log page. Just a fun way for me to catalogue the books and essays and short stories I've been reading. Also to help me remember what I read and where I can find it if I want to reread it (mainly in the case of short stories and essays) in particular if I want to reference back to any of these in future Blog or Garden posts. I had started filling it out offline back in March 2023, so that's why, despite me making it public now, it has that as its start date.
April 1, 2023 - Filled in all of the old blog entries from my Weebly site so now it's all housed here! Horray! I'm so glad I got that done. Now I feel secure enough to leave that host behind and finally downgrade my site (a good thing) and move it to a cheaper location (probably Neocities). This also means that I can finally start posting new blog entries over here to Mycorrhiza's Space.
I've also learned a neat new trick for RSS. It's an HTML tag that goes in the Head section of the page that makes it easier for RSS readers to automatically pick out a feed so it can be added to a visitor's library. This will hopefully make people looking at my Blog and Garden more inclined to add my RSS. It's definitely a lot simpler than getting someone to click on a link to a page full of scary looking code. Here's where I learned how to do this.
Late night addendum (idc that it's technically April 2nd): I also changed up my Index page a bit because I felt that the little "Enter" button was a bit underwhelming. I'll very likely fancy it up more later but I just really wanted to update it right now since I'm actually using this site more requently.
March 29, 2023 - Built my Changelog page. Hello, you are here 🌟
March 27, 2023 - I'll try not to make these entries quite so granular, but a lot of stuff has been going on over here at Mycorrhiza's Space. I've zhuzh'd up the overall look of my site's pages. I got rid of the sticky header effect as I felt it was a bit useless for pages that aren't all that long to scroll down. Also if I want to make it easier for people to get back to the top of a long trail of text I can just add a "Back To Top" link.
I'm trying to stick to the ethos of keep it simple. I like the look of a lot of low tech websites, though I do also like to put some pizzaz on my own pages with my custom drawn backgrounds or gradients. In the end though I think all people want is just an easy to read page to peruse, or maybe I'm projecting. But I guess it never hurts to make the kind of site I would like to use and visit, and I hope that attracts like minded people.
March 25, 2023 - Built and released my first newsletter. This also coincides with me building my first RSS feed for this site. More RSS feeds to come once I become more active on my Blog (after I've filled out all the old entries) as well as my Garden.
March 22, 2023 - 1 year anniversary of Mycorrhiza's Space! Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised I stuck with this!
December 2022 - Set up my custom domain name on my site. it is now officially Mycorrhiza's Space 😎
August 2022 - Added sub gallery page for my ocs from my webnovel Earthshine.
July 2022 - I started adding other pages to my site, in particular my gallery page.
April 2022 - set up the background for the index page of my webbed site lol. It's just a big image of a tree in space nbd.
March 22,2022 - Site created! I start my coding adventure!
