mei's room: updates

2024-06-16

answered 2 asks.

i have to say... this may be one of the last changelog updates over here on meixins dot neocities dot org. i'm typing this now in the neocities code editor because i zipped up the local working file of my site... and am working on an overhaul!!!

  • most of it will look the same but with some aesthetic changes, and less stressful code on my end.
  • it will be hosted on vercel, and i'm in the process of reworking it with eleventy (which is why i've been quiet on here!)

i'll obviously update this with a link once it's at least A LITTLE up and running (i'm working on a homepage redesign), and with a link to my new rss feed too. until then, this site will remain in its current state. if you need an answer to anything, you can always reach me at the email linked in my contact page above! thank you, as always, for visiting my site and i hope you continue to visit it once it emerges from its cocoon ^__^

ah, and this isn't a site update, but it's going to be hard to update elsewhere so i am doing it here... i have a comic in an anthology about ace romance, which you can find here! check it out – any support (backing the kickstarter!!!!, or even sharing it) would be much appreciated! this is Baby's First Publication so i'm hoping it gets enough support to get produced. so exciting!!

  • FINISHED THE DUCKTALES THREAD ARCHIVE.
    • the whole thing is a whopping 20 pages. my god.
    • new pages start here on page 16.
    • i've also rounded up a "best of" of the triplets + beaks + my actual thoughtful tweets on its index page.
    • this was horrible to hand code. i will never do this again... i won't go through the trouble of re-coding it when i inevitably fix my site to work with 11ty...
  • small additions: scrapbook, gpoy, links.

  • answered an ask about how i update my site.
  • uploaded part of my ducktales livetweet thread. seasons one and two!
    • season three will need more time, as it has more screenshots than s1&2 combined. eek!
  • i wrote a new diary entry about some sitely things! still figuring out a use case for this damn diary...

2024-05-21

managed to squeeze an update into my comic grind!!!

  • added to my book log.
  • added a note to my scrapbook.
  • can't tell if i should put the big things first or last... anyway! i made a big ol' oc/canon shrine for kieran von pokemon + my girl lina.
    • it's password-protected, as the rest of my oc/canons will be. if you want to get access, i suggest lurking around my homepage to find out how!
    • but if you're on mobile, i'll help you cheat.

the next updates should include my ducktales livetweet thread, mayyybe the completion of my everbloom files page (it's just SO much writing!), and a diary entry on future plans for this site (moving, etc). thank you as always for stopping by!

  • big news: i've overhauled all of my links! i know, i'm sorry, very annoying, but all old links are now broken. (the good news is that i fixed nearly all links in each page, so within the site stuff should still be working!)
    • i just kind of thought the folders made the links really ugly, and proved to make things more tedious for me as well.
  • the changelog page has collapsed log entries that used the old links under a "details" element for tidiness.
  • in better news: i have a fun new page, with fun new subpages: artifacts!
  • i also answered two asks about miniso capybaras and a fun writing suggestion.
  • added a new entry to the well-behaved worm log.
  • you might notice a lot of my pages' fonts are switching to rubik. it's just easier to read... road to less headachey webpages

i hear that 123guestbook is going to shut down in a few months, so i'll have to find a new host for my humble guestbook. shame bc i loved the clean and simple 123guestbook url + interface... thank you to everyone who ever signed mine!!

oh no!

2024-05-07

  • well, it looks like the flavor profile and blorbo pages are back up!
    • flavor profile's got a redone look, and i moved the ships there too. blorbo page has had a bit of revision as well.
  • changed the font on the sitemap. i'm realizing my font size for most of my site is SO SMALL!!!!!

2024-05-05

  • surprise surprise. once again, i'm unhappy with the sketchbook, so i've taken it down – maybe just for now?
  • moved the scrapbook from the "library" category to "studio".
  • got rid of a few pages: flavor profile, blorbos, ships, the vault. they'll be back soon! i just want to rework them.
    • in the meantime, i've moved shrines to the main map.

2024-05-01

  • danny shrine: for whatever reason, i was motivated to try and wrangle the gallery of pictures and upload all my videos. so the shrine is complete!
    • i used melonking's gallery maker. it was easy to use after i trial-and-errored my galleries a few times! i just kept finding things i wanted to fix and having to redo, lol.
    • i think i would have a harder time using it for continually-updating galleries though, just bc i do a lot of post-generation editing.

2024-04-30

  • music: updated with april songs, and changed the css of the lyrics subpage a bit.
  • danny shrine: fixed the more page so the images are responsive on mobile.
  • fixed the mobile css for a couple of pages: gpoy, family... also made the mobile button on my front page more obvious.
also, sketchbook: some april art. i think i've figured out a way to make updating this page much less hellish – click to view.
  • update monthly rather than every time i draw anything new, so i can evaluate which drawings i'd like on here. i don't need Every drawing i've ever made on here!
  • use squidge to host images – i know it's not good practice, but it's easier for me.
  • add star emoji to any subpage and subcategory with new art.
  • have all subcategories (details) closed except for ones with new art in them. exception: subcategories with content warnings.
  • move subcategory with new art to the top of its subpage.
  • stuff i'm still figuring out: striking a balance between sorting by subject vs by month. then again, does chronological order matter on my site when my art folders are organized by month already? as long as i know when i made the work, that's fine.

thank you for visiting!!!

  • new page: danny pudi shrine........ help... there are three subpages so far.
  • little housekeeping things, like rearranging the vault page links. really it's mostly the danny shrine.

2024-04-25

  • i updated my now page!
  • new page: clippings! just a hodgepodge of things. i've got a lot of these three-column pages, huh?
    • my collections page was also edited to include the above.
  • added an article (under "media") and logged movie
  • gpoy: added a couple more, lol

2024-04-23

  • books: updated my reading log and added a few english language webcomics.
  • gpoy: added a few new images of me lol
  • blorbos: added some ducks!
  • everything on the everbloom homepage should be mobile friendly now (EXCEPT for the host page, it's too crazy in there) but looks extremely weird on web, sorry.
    • also the font is unfortunately harder to read, i just noticed. curses!!!
    • i will probably be revamping the css of this page entirely at some point, since it was one of the first few pages i built and i've settled into a design sensibility i'm comfortable with since then!
    • if you snoop you MIGHT find a new page... but it's not ready yet so i'm not linking it here!!!
  • contact: i answered a question about cougar town.

2024-04-12

  • i tried very very hard for a bit to make my index page mobile friendly... but i fear my brain will break before i am able to do that. so instead, i made a mobile homepage
    • a link to it shows up on the index page if your screen is narrower than 1100px i believe.
    • one of these days i will revamp my whole homepage to be responsive from the get go, but today is not that day! (i mostly just don't want to draw a whole new set of graphics...)
  • updated my watch log.
  • answered a question about starkid.
  • added a blorbo.
  • added some misc media to the bottom of my pokemon games page. (guess it's not really a games page anymore?)

what is next on the agenda... danny pudi shrine (AARGGGHHH!!!!!), maybe a new page for the acnh shrine (i recently celebrated everbloom's 3rd anniversary last 4/7!), a blog post about a year on neocities? or maybe about how i keep track of/organize my pages, if that's fun for anyone?, and a theatre page, because why not just complete the library already.

thank you as always for stopping by meixins!

2024-04-09

  • new page up for books and things! :) i like the font – same one i used for the boy wall.
    • the library is shaping up nicely – i think i'll take a break before getting to the last main page of this folder (the theatre page).
  • added an anti-rec list to my shows & movies page, lol.

2024-04-04

  • i totally updated my about page!
    • okay not TOTALLY – but there's a lot of new stuff. get ready to know me like you never did before. (no one asked for this)
    • i just felt like my old one was kind of clunky, and weirdly arranged on mobile... i'm happier with this one!
    • i added a picrew section at the bottom to make up for getting rid of my existing profile picture drawing. you see enough of me in the sketchbook.
  • replied to an ask about my boy wall. (anon i love you.)
  • some minor things, like adding an extra tv show (forgot about miranda!) and some other things i've already forgotten.

2024-04-02

  • new page: boy wall!
    • a fun, easy page! i wanted to make it interactive, like a moodboard where you can move shit around and tried it but alas, javascript is still beyond me. another time!
  • answered a question about the status cafe widget.

2024-04-01

  • ta-da: the beginnings of pokemon shrine!
  • added two new blorbos. i started watching dungeon meshi and community.

2024-03-15

  • noticed i wrote the links wrong for the blogs on my links page, but i fixed it!
  • added a new video and commentary to my mume extra page – i can't believe i've never seen this video before??
  • new art on the sketchbook – lots of white day doodles for ships, self-ships, and ocs, plus a new comic!
    • updating this sketchbook is less tedious than it used to be, but still very tedious... but i do not like iframes or too many pages, so until i figure out a workaround, i will be powering through.
    • i think it will also be much better once some of these subject areas get their own dedicated pages!
  • added some new games to the misc section.

i've got a pokemon shrine in the works as we speak, but pages will probably come in installments as i work on them :•) thank you as always for stopping by my site!

2024-03-08

  • new well-behaved worm entry.
  • updated the extra page on my mume shrine, which completes the shrine!!!!! of course there will be more to add, but for now i'm quite happy with what's in it.
  • new art on the sketchbook – particularly under cupid, oops all dracs, misc ss, and personal. i'm still getting the hang of how i want to update this... hoping the stars are helpful?
  • also i added new blinkies on my about because why not.

2024-03-02

  • added some new pics to gpoy.

  • responded to an ask about my sketchbook.
  • added the writeups to my treasures.
  • added an entry to wbw.
  • filled out the about page for my mume shrine!

2024-02-26

  • whew, very hefty update... the sketchbook page is back up, and mobile friendly to boot!
    • i've got all the art i want up there so far - lots of sections will have their own pages with a more comprehensive art gallery, so what's up here is just. stuff
    • essentially the sketchbook is a dumping grounds, and stuff with their own page planned (acnh, fe3h, inserts, etc) may also get transferred over!
    • i'm implementing lazy loading and i hope it works...
  • responded to more asks!
  • added some links to more sites i like!
  • added an entry to wbw.

i'm more motivated now to work on my shrines, after going through my folders and seeing how much i've drawn about some of these things... i don't plan to put them all in my sketchbook (especially if they're old) so i gotta make those pages fast!

2024-02-23

  • responded to a new ask!
  • linked all uploaded comics to my for love page!
  • oh yeah, and more old comics:

i'd like to work on the mume & ac shrine soon, but shrines are so intimidating. i like things very organized, and my feelings about my obsessions are not so cut and dry. list pages like the blorbos / sonas are much easier, so maybe i'll work on an oc roster soon? ack, but i'd need to draw for that... i should first list all the ocs that don't have art yet... (a glimpse into the neurosis of mei)

realistically my next pages should be anything from this list: selfship gallery (maybe js?!) (this comprises most of my art these days), sketchbook revamp, mume page completion, or something else entirely.

2024-02-22

  • updated the well-behaved worm page with today's entry!
  • yet another diary post (hey, two days in a row?) about my recent trip, as promised. pictures included!
  • updated my toys page with some new little guys!
  • finally, finally tried figuring out the rarebit template so i can start uploading old comics that come in pages. these are old old - like pre-2020. i expect the pages to not look That nice (for now or forever, depending on how motivated i feel to polish them up), but at least the comics will be there.
    • that being said: 2019 V-day comic be upon ye!
    • 2019 dating apps mini zine be upon ye as well!
    • upcoming: oh so pretty, freshman year, and my discontinued high school comic. i've put them all together but just gotta write the author's notes before i upload them, because you know i love to talk.
      • everywhere a garden will not be joining these guys on my site though... it's just too big and too personal!
    • also must do: a) revive my sketchbook, for sillier, one-off comics, and b) have a more organized page for these substantial comics besides my did4love page. or maybe i'll just put them in a little list in my sketchbook... efficiency! 👍

thank you as always for stopping by, and have a great day!

  • made a new page: well-behaved worm! this is going to be my behavior/bonding log for worm. i expect to update it pretty frequently, but will probably not update my changelog to minimize spam.

finally reformatted my changelog to look a bit better + be a bit more functional! you can now subscribe to it via atom feed, provided by journal.miso.town.

paste the URL below into your RSS/atom feed reader, and you should be good to go.

https://journal.miso.town/atom?url=https://meixins.neocities.org/changelog
now, on to actual updates! here's some stuff from january 2024 so far:
  • updated my music page with songs from december.
  • answered two new questions about hazbin hotel and my comics. i'm pleasantly surprised that my makeshift askbox is useful!
  • made a new page: sonas! most stuff is filled out, except for lore on extremely new sonas. links to galleries don't work yet, but i'm excited to get on that soon.
  • moved my changelog from my about site page to its own page (this one) and gave it a feed, woohoo! also added info on the about site page about my preferences for linking up.
