I missed making layouts. The effort of squeezing your brain out to come up with ideas, as well as sitting in front of the computer for hours, trying to generate those ideas into something new and interesting… yes, I missed all that.
This afternoon, I actually got myself to make a new layout. =) Wooh! Simplicity is how I like to do my site. Not too much clutter, not too much color. So yeah, I just tweaked around photoshop and notepad and came up with this. Not much difference with the old layout, but at least it’s a new look. XP hehe.
I was going through the old entries in my guestbook, and I couldn’t help but reminisce the old “web scene.” How I’d go online everyday, blog, visit other peoples’ sites, comment and reply guestbook entries. It was much like a routinary thing, but I actually miss it.
I’ve noticed that a lot of people these days have opted using livejournal, blurty or tabulas for their blogging purposes. Most of these people are actually the ones who used to be very much active in their own websites. Frankly, I’ve become one of those people too.
I guess it’s the freedom and privacy that one has when using those type of blogging services that attract people like me. This website for one has become way too public. Sometimes I find myself having to think twice before posting some concerns or anything too detailed about my thoughts and feelings. The fear of unwanted people lurking around and reading my thoughts pops up. At least with blurty or livejournal, you get the option of allowing only certain people to read your posts.
But I do miss posting here. I miss the whole website scene. So, I’m keeping this website up. I’ll still be posting. Besides, this has way too many memories and sentimental values for me to let it go. ^__^;;
