  1. Okay, so I administrate over at Distant Fantasies and as such, on a regular basis get to see new sites or existing sites as I just browse the DF Directory. As such I find sites that strike my fancy and while I am not a chronic site joiner I love to be able to suggest sites to my friends and I've noticed this blaring trend of waffling. Now I say that and your first instinct is 'wtf is waffling' but waffling is a failure for one to make up their mind. Mind you, I'm a queen waffler IRL. Next question you ask is 'wtf are they waffling about'? Well that's where it gets interesting. It's their word count. Now mind you, I'm an avid anti-word count advocate. I find that I have as much potency in a one line post as some people feel that you only get from hundreds, if not thousands, of words. That notwithstanding though, I don't like reading things like: We're a no word count site but...... But what? Are you a no word count site or aren't you? There is no buts in such a statement unless you're not, in fact, a no word count site. If you add in a "but we like to see at least three paragraphs" or "we prefer that you have at least 200 words" then why don't you make that you're minimum? A "no word count" site means that I can post one word or I can post ten thousand but there is absolutely no restriction on how many I am required to put into that post box. After I read this and it infuriated me, I talked to my boyfriend Cricket about this. Mind you, my boyfriend is a DnD based roleplayer, he uses his dice to determine things while I use communication with my partner. I asked him if he had this type of thing in his campaign, these types of players and he said that he did except his players are overly wordy for the sake of trying to cover all of there basis so they don't get killed. "I turned the knob to the left really slowly before pushing the door open, just as slowly as to not make a sound" and we both didn't know of a single person that was legitimately that careful, especially when you consider the setting. I explained to him that for my format that people felt themselves on a higher rank than you due to the amount of words that they post, no matter how relevant or important those words were to be able to progress the story line. The conversation continued and he asked about how relevant the post content was and I advised him 70-90 percent of it is fluff to fill the word count or time travel posting (time travel posting is responding to parts of the previous post because the previous roleplayer continued past that point and didn't giv eyou ample opportunity to respond even though your character, would in fact, respond). Time travel posting incites more time travel posting which incites more fluff to fill an arbitrary number for a ranking system that only exists in the minds of the players themselves. I'm a 17 year play by post roleplayer. I have been through the advanced years when 1200 words were the minimum to be considered a part of the roleplay elite of "Advanced" and I've been through the years that 600 words was that and now the new trend is "no word count but". I'm an advanced roleplayer and after all this time I've come to finally a zen point in my roleplaying time to have finally figured out that: This is just a game. I shouldn't feel like getting onto my roleplay sites is a job. There is no reason for this and I should feel like my relaxation hobby is a chore. Word counts make it a chore. A word count is an arbitrary number to keep up a fascist belief that more is better. I'm going to fill you in, that if it doesn't contribute to the plot then it's likely not worth your time to type it out. How many books have you read that a character inner monologues for pages, upon pages, upon pages, that actually keep your interest and doesn't progress the plot. Sure you can talk about your childhood tragedy for 400 words but how does that help your character now, or the plot that you are trying to progress but posting about how your character shifts uncomfortably and gets a look in their eye that someone might be able to see, that's proper writing. Yes, I reduced 400 words into a single sentence but the single sentence is far more potent. Word counts kill the muse. I've read posts that are amazingly long that give me absolutely nothing to reply to and one liners that speak volumes in themselves that inspire me to write a thousand words. If the situation calls for the post then post it but don't strangle me with your words because you are obligated or you feel a better sense of self by posting a longer post. It perpetuates a lie that your quality cannot be seen by posting something less then some arbitrary number. Confucius say: "Do not use a cannon to kill a mosquito." I can't say how appropriate this is. Your concise words should speak the volumes in your character actions. Really in the end you will play the site you're comfortable with and if that's the site that requires 3 paragraphs or nine million words per post, then so be it. I just request that you stop your waffling and either say your no word count because you are or say your a word/paragraph count site because that's what you are. There is no reason to have a but in your rule about count minimums if you have one set in your mind. Make up your fucking mind.

    Updating sites

    So I'm in the process of updating Morrigan's Madness and Morrgasm. I was thinking that Morrigan's madness needed something new and improved for a skin (still working on that) and just a makeover all around. Excitingly I added a new plugin that I think will be helpful. It's an all in one Social media plugin. I find that I forget to Tweet when I post and having something do it for me is always fabulous. Plus it takes a load off my shoulders for it.The plugin is Jetpack and is downloadable through Wordpress so if you have Wordpress and want something that really integrates social media into your site, I'm enjoying it so far, I would suggest it. Only piece of advice I could give anyone about it, there is a built in like feature and any posts created before installing the plugin don't seem to be able to use it, but if you update the post it will fix it (no changes need to be made) and you can use the mass edit and just choose "Update" and it will leave all posts as they were and fix the bug. Let me add into that:If you are using the Jetpack plugin and are having an issue with the Like link constantly showing as "Loading" edit the post and then publish it and it will fix the issue. I have decided, with the discovery of this plugin, that I will also be installing Wordpress on my main site, Morrgasm.com so look for that in the next week.
  3. So my boyfriend today said I need to focus my site creating juices toward one site and get the traffic up enormously and then from there market and see what we can do about possibly revenuing it and making it to where I don't have to have a conventional job anymore. Thinking about it, I agree but where to start? I don't have enough motivation most of the time to keep to one project (my current ten projects proving such a thing) and figuring out a way to drive traffic to my site is elusive to me. Of course I'm sure the first site that you think I should get going is probably Morrigan's Madness and that seems almost a good idea. It's the site I've had active and going for the longest and it's also my blog but I don't know of much that I could legitimately talk about that would drive more people to my site. I don't have much originality to be honest. I talk about my strife in life and who wants to hear that? Not even I like to hear myself whine and yet I do it on here like I'm some entitled blogger or something. <_< Not really but you get what I mean. Then there is my new site splash page Morrgasm which should be some sort of Morrigan content site with links to all of my projects, what I'm working on, what I'm doing. It'll likely have a feed from here to keep the information flowing. It seems like a good idea but what would I publish to this site to make it worth visiting other then links to my other sites. Transferring content I don't think is a good thing to focus on but I think that if I make it my MAIN site then it would be worth it. It would be like the ultimate splash page. Next possibility is to really focus one of my two comic ideas. Those have the most monetary potential if you consider it. There is Morrapocalypse or Wootflakes. Now Morrapocalypse is the Apocalyptic/Dystopic Comic that is there to both teach you something about surviving a dystopia and apocalypse as well as exposing some cliches. The skin is not done and I have no presence whatsoever but it does have a domain sister of Morrdystopia that has a forum on it. Wootflakes on the other hand is a geeky little spork that has mostly nerd humor. The skin is done but needs to be re-created and I already have some basis done I would just need to focus on getting them up regularly and advertising it. My other option is RPers Anonymous which is the site that I have the most focus on but the hardest time finding a software that is worth it and I can't afford to straight upgrade my server to a VPS to get the software that mostly works and I certainly don't have a few thousand to throw down to get it made and I'd have to go back to school to get the personal knowledge because all the crash courses that I've been through doesn't really teach me proper security and security is important for what I'm looking for. So this idea is my primary one but I don't have the money to throw at it. I guess with this, if I wanted to upgrade, I could do hosting packages for RPers for small fees and it would include cPanel but I don't know I guess it would depend I'd need enough interest in it to make up for the cost of the VPS. It' would be something simple like maybe 3 bucks a month or 5 a month with Morr Support. I guess I should see how the free hosting goes first. Last one is RP Status which is mostly supposed to be an addition to RPA so focusing on it would be silly other then posting to it updates. So it wouldn't be worth it without it's counterpart and see above for the problems with that. I guess there is one other, Faerie Reverie which is supposed to be a site (whenever I finish it) about kids especially my kids even though they drive me crazy. It could be something of an ideas to play with your kids (as I normally don't see pretty sites like it) but that would require me being a more involved parent and I don't have time for it most of the time. I'd have to figure out ways to make things fun for my kids without spoiling them. Another idea is to get Sex is Business off the ground which again would require a little money from me including getting my breasts done like I want to do and fixing my teeth. This one would be the site that I have photos of myself for sell in naughty ways. This is my preferred method but I don't know how to market a site like this. It would definitely be a ton of fun starting out with certain photos and moving from there but again what to do. My other domains like Knights of Cydonia, Card Rebellion, and Brain Damage are all RPGs so they aren't something to make money off of as they are simply hobby. The others Woothappens and Lady Pirate are re-directors to other domains and I just have them for prettiness and show. So needless to say these aren't options. Now what do I want to get from my endeavors? Enough money to financially support my ability to stay at home and work on them. This is my end all goal. With that it would give me the ability to do my other desires including writing a book without the drain of muse. So needless to say I'm already blech about this all. I want so much more and I can't attain it and I can't make a decision on what to focus on. I think my primary focus (until I decide) is to get Morrgasm up so I have my proper splash site and to-do list and determine my top priority. Feel free to post your opinion of this here as I'm always looking for feedback and suggestions. If you like an idea let me know and I'll try and put more weight on that.
  4. So there is a contest going on at Distant Fantasies to help get the word out about the new Tweet Feature from their site to promote your site on Twitter! Yay them! Fun for RPs to get the word out their further! So I figured I'd let you all know about it: https://twitter.com/#!/DistantFantasy That's where it is. I've already followed it and tweeted the word. If you tweet the word feel free to post on the "Boards2go" http://boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?user=distantfantasies Of course you can help Knights of Cydonia or any site that you'd prefer to be featured there and the ways are here: http://distant-fantasies.net/featured.php Have fun and thanks for supporting your local neighborhood Morrigan

    Networking

    So if you knew it or not I'm working on writing a book and to do that I've been reading a rather informative book on how to get myself published. Mind you I'm an extremely slow reader and I have had little time to actually do any writing with being exhausted from work but I'm trying really hard. I have my game plan in motion on how I want to continue I just need the time and focus to do so. So, back to the explanation, it talks about networking and making a market for my book, finding that market or seeking it out. Now, that sounds like a great plan but I find a few flaws with that system. Who is my market? While I want to believe everyone is my market, obviously my market will stray to the Sci-Fi fantasy people and even maybe on the slightly gothic side. Well Sci-Fi is an extremely broad realm, where would I start? Well you'd think at Sci-Fi sites, but I go to a Sci-Fi site and all I see are things about pace and things. So I have a niche of Sci-Fi right? Dystopia. Because that is a sub genre for Sci-Fi that my book should fall into. Where do I go for Dystopia? http://dystopia.com/ That's the obvious choice right? But where is the community behind that? There are great film and book suggestions there but where is the community I'm looking for. So lets google it. When you google Dystopia you get facts and lists of Dystopia as a genre, still no community right? Well what about who inspired it? Muse. Well there is a great community that follows muse but what would make them interested in a "Muse inspired Dystopia"? What would draw that crowd to me as a writer? Well our love of Muse but I'm not a deeply musical person. I love music but how does that fit in with a book that I want to publish to promote it? Well get the people and they will love it? Well I want to but how does one wriggle there way into the community of something so intertwined? What would one do to try and reach out to other Muse fans and tell them that I am inspired to write a book that might be to their fancy as it is inspired by the same music that they listen to? How would one truly integrate themselves? Well there is always building a website? Well I have websites. I have many in fact. I even have a roleplay based in the world that I have created for this book, mind you it is far more lax then the actual book will be because I have to make it playable but it is a website dedicated to the world the book is in. Then get people attracted to the site! Ok! Come to http://knightsofcydonia.org join and RP! Did it work? Did I get you hooked enough to join? Have questions? Ask me there. *tests said theory* Another method is to do things like Podcasts and Tweets and Facebook about myself, about my book, about things my book is about and things like that. Well that's fine and dandy if I were making a book on how the world today is a Dystopia but I am not (mind you I do believe modern day America is a modern day Dystopia, ruled and controlled by the market, want to know more show your interest and I will blog about it). Now Podcasts, Sure, I'll do a podcast but what would it be about? Same things I've been talking about? I really want to start building this world of people interested in my work but really where does it start for a fiction writer? Where would I push to get people to like me as an author? My answer to that is through my blog here. While I only update semi-regularly I think that this is my best bet to gain any interest whatsoever. I do post my chapters to my Fanfiction here. I think that I may try to write short stories and post them here too. I certainly think that it would do me a world of good to concentrate on something that will focus me artistically, even if I'm tired. It says to work hard and work tirelessly. Well I'm already tired so lets either get changed into a vampire or turned into a zombie so I can work even harder. I want to do this. I CAN do this! I have never wanted something to be completed so badly in my life. Here is my attempt as a working tirelessly person: I will try to post something on this blog at minimum bi-weekly. I will try to post a short story set in the world I am creating at least monthly. I will try to keep this schedule as best as I can, even when stressed, tired or otherwise physically and mentally strained. I will try to respond to all tweets/facebook requests and blog comments in a timely fashion. I will try to keep up with my social networking medias so that you know that I am diligently trying to get this done. I will try to post updates as far as which chapter I have completed and how many words are done on the story, periodically. I will try to be a better person/mother/girlfriend/daughter/sister even during times that I may feel pressured or sad. I will try not to cop out and talk only about my emotions, having ideas and writing them down when I get them. I will ask for advice on things that I may not know much about. I will make myself as available as I can to both connect with people and be helpful in things that you may need help with. I will get published no matter what it takes.
  6. So I was talking to a friend and one of my fellow RPers Anon administrators and neither of us are very happy with the Social networking softwares that we have found to change RPers Anon over to the new software that we find fills the needs and dreams we want to make for it. We already switched to Dolphin which is alright but it certainly is just "too much" and not very intuitive. There are far too many dependent modules and it is far too expensive to get the features that we want. So we've been looking into other means of getting the results that we want. We've tried Elgg, which looks like the most promising but the support in the community is lacking as well as the basic functionality that we want for the site. She's tried Drupal (the bane of my existence) I've looked at other softwares and they are either expensive or ugly to even look at let alone consider skinning. Now that leads to the reason why I'm even blogging at the moment, I WANT WHAT IS IN MY BRAIN TO JUST APPEAR. I Want the code to just appear from my head, perfectly formatted, and give me what I want. I'm nowhere near coding savvy enough to make something that is secure and nice. (I've tried and it was a very poor attempt back then, let alone looking back on it now). I really want something not too elaborate or needy. I mean the basic things that we want is: Members Messaging Friends Groups Fan Pages Statuses of some sort Notifications An update of what the person is doing around the site Discussions (preferably just in Groups I don't think I need a general forum anymore at all) Site Directory (Which might be integrated into the Fan Pages) Profile Comments Liking things on profiles and in groups (to go into what the person is doing on the site) A Default Portal page that has this information laid out in a nice fashion. Now looking at the list I feel like it's a lot of stuff (especially since I have a feeling it's not the entire list) but there are things that irritate me and I want something that my members can really connect with for RP. I don't want a basic forum. I want an honest to god, made for RPers, by RPers Social Network but I can't afford to buy someone to code something for me. Maybe if someone loves me enough they will be inclined to help me out. I'm not a complete coding dunce but I'm a poor mum. Maybe I can exchange awesome Morrness (posts and IMs and Tweets and general time spent) for some intense coding help or even some development help. Wishful thinking I'm sure...
  7. Well I've not been updating this properly so I'm going to try and get back into this. Firstly, I have turned off the Twitter feed into my blog. I thought it was alright to start off with but really it's more or less just blog spam and I think it keeps me from posting properly in my blog so I apologize for that. I am trying to get back into a scheduled routine, Yoga, writing, baths, bed. Going to bed late is bad for me. T_T Secondly, NaNo starts next month so get excited for more updates about my writing. I'm actually hoping to take this opportunity and write a full story and see if I can get it published. With how things are going in my life it actually seems like the best course of action and I've been world building an RPG that I will be using as the primary setting. Thirdly I wanted to show everyone my awesome video! I am NO singer but I had fun and that's all that counts so I will warn you now that any comments on how bad of a singer I am I will delete it immediately. It was done to have some fun. It is a Spoof of Amanda Palmer's Leeds United song. Lets see what else. My daughter is doing well in school although I'm having problems keeping my kids from fighting and keeping my sanity. I am easily frustrated and not having a significant other to share the responsibilities with makes my life really frustrating. I mean I have mum to help offset it (and she really does help and put up with my bratty kids) but it's really hard all around. Ijust need to work on breathing and patience. Hopefully Yoga will help, I need something to help center me and I think that it will help me with my patience issues. I hate being impatient but I'm having a hard time not being impatient. In the coding world I've been developing a Character mod for IPB3. It's working very well so far I'm adding and fixing things as I go. My current project is custom fields but I haven't started working on it yet but I think it will be relatively easy, especially to override the UserInfoPane info. ------------------------------------------------------- Today's dilemma is something that I'm not sure should concern me. I've been wanting to create another character on my site which would make 10 (or 11 if you include DORIS) which would just solidify my role in having 10 out of the 20 characters on the site. Now while I don't mind having a lot of characters (I'm active with each of them and none are in danger of anything) but I feel that it's almost overkill to have so many characters. The problem is that I have so many ideas knocking around in my head and I want to play them out but I'm afraid that it would scare potential members that I am monopolizing the RP with my characters although it's more because there are so few members that my characters aren't offset by others' characters. T_T It makes me feel bad because I have the most amount of characters but it also frustrates me because I want to make another character because I have a good idea and I think it should be my choice to make since it is my creative energy. Now, I had decided last night to make the character and I'm back to being wishy washy on it. I think that it would be a great character to create but I think that I should hold off but that just artistically frustrates me and my muse. I think I will wait for a few more characters to show up before I make her and perhaps I will choose to write my NaNo story on the woman to put it out creatively. Thanks for listening to my plight while I decided on this, although I still fight to not make the character I think that I will wait until the KoC story furthers and it has been around longer for her to step in or that we get 5-10 more characters on the site. ------------------------------------------------------- Now the last thing I think of is site changes. I am going to change my layout here on Morrigan's Madness. The colors should stay relatively the same as they are two of my favorites, it's that or pink. I also am going to create a Listing and maybe start up a fanlisting or two. I will most likely begin to get my site linked at other places so look forward to seeing a lot of changes here on MM but they may be slow, my first priorities is scheduling my life, KoC and RPers Anon. I think that you will all enjoy the changes as I will be adding Twitter stuff, Facebook Stuff and more. ^_^ That's it for now. Enjoy and thanks for reading.
  8. So i look through my spam, for this site for two reasons. the first to make sure that a valid comment isn't sitting in the recesses of comment hell. The second reason is because the damn things are so funny. "You have such a great forum. My name is blah blah blah" or even better, I think the best one I saw in a while, "I tend to agree with the posts on this blog, but in this case I ought to say that I do not agree with this." That one still makes me laugh after I've read it. That one is extra funny because it is an opinionated comment on a non-objective subject. The post was Not so interesting day which, for those that don't want to go back and read it, was an entry about how the story I am trying to take off the hands of my brother is going to be difficult for me. I mean really? How does that warrant a comment of: "I tend to agree with the posts on this blog, but in this case I ought to say that I do not agree with this." It's like it's saying. "I agree with your opinions but this not opinion is not agreeable." Or even better. "You're WRONG! This is going to be easy as cake for you, you stupid whore!" Spam and it's entertainment value. In other news! I have joined a few more forums and am trying to stay active on them but I also got a few members on my site and got quite a few posts done today. I hit over 100 posts on my own forum. I believe my threats of elephant genocide is working. Remember... Join Wootflakes or the Elephant gets it!! On the news of wootflakes! I have posted my fourth ever comic today! Yay for staying steady. Go check it out. Tell me what you think! On top of that I added a Wootflakes fan page! Become a fan of Wootflakes and it's kidney failing goodness! Do it or the baby elephants die. Don't kill any more baby elephants. What else got done today? Nothing. I watched Xena. Tried to to die with headachishness and children running around like mad. I did do my Yoga again today and actually should go to bed so I have time to go to do Yoga before I take my daughter to her socialization. I don't know if I should even bother but I guess a few minutes is better then no minutes with her friends right? I', still frustrated over the vaccination thing. I kind of wish I can feign refusal and that I didn't want her to get it and then she can go. Wishful thinking. We'll see. Well goodnight! Hope you're having a good day! ^_^

    Naughty Morr

    Gah! I'm having naughty thoughts about not posting a blog tonight. I've been bad enough barely even posting a blog the past few days for lack of motivation (meaning I've been tired and not willing enough to push out a better post then what I did) and so I've been naughty. This is my outlet to try and keep me a little more sane then I normally am and to just have a place to vent a little. So today's adventures. My mum kept pushing and poking until I went to church with her. FAIL! I mean I am not an atheist by the furthest stretch of the imagination but I'm also not Mormon anymore, I haven't been for almost a decade. Come to think of it I find that a lot of changes in my life happened when I was 17 because that was when I also lost faith in the Mormon church. Now my mum's Mormon, which is good and well, they have been really awesome in helping her out in this hard time, but I'm not anymore. SO! I went to church with her today and I hated it, as I knew I would. It's boring and short of learning more ammunition for why I am not Christian any longer I don't learn anything of value. I only let my kids go because it's like a free play group. <_< I know... I'm bad. What else? Nothing really. Today has been a rather boring day. It was mostly because over half of it was wasted on the waste winds of Waste Church. Bleh. It sucks. I think I got one Smiley done today and the rest of the time I've been a little nostalgic and missing my old site but whatever. If they'd rather ban me then pretty much say, "Listen Bitch, do what we say or else" then that's their perogative. I really didn't even realize I had done anything wrong until the ban message. How sad is that? C'est La Vie I guess. Doesn't make it any better or me any happier that my friends from there don't talk to me so much or that I got mad at some of them and told them I didn't want to talk to them anymore. T_T Whatever. I am past it and onto better things I hope. I know it's for the better because I'm not consumed by the site like I used to be. I still miss the people though. I did talk to Sparky a bit today but she seemed distracted so I left her alone and Arkasel always seems distracted and I don't think Neph cares to talk to me at all anymore. Whatever I guess. ON A BETTER NOTE! I think I have a majority of my webcomic for this week planned out. I haven't started working on it yet but I have considered what I am doing. It will be NEXT weeks webcomic that I will have to be worried about. Remember that wit and comedy that I told you that I don't have? Well I really don't have it and once I play out this weeks comic then I think I will be tapped dry. My brother suggested an idea but I am unsure if I want to use it right away, we will see, I might. It's corny but funny and probably worth it just for the "facepalm lol" factor. We'll see. I NEED MORE MEMBERS! Go to WOOTFLAKES and join. It doesn't matter who you are, if you want to make me to smile and keep writing comics then you should come and talk to me on my forum! Alright.... You don't have to but you would certainly make me feel warm and fuzzy if you joined and helped me get the commiunity started off by posting in topics starting some, making suggestions. All that awesome forum stuff. ^_^ Alright. I think that's it for the night. I'm going to probably shut down my depressing computer and watch Dr Who (which will probably just depress me further, BAARROOOWMAN!!! *shakes fist*) <3333 you all and Hope you are having a good day!

    Nothin' to report

    Okay, I really did lie about the whole "I won't use lines from movies thing" I mean I've now brought in the Incredibles. I fail. #morrfail ALRIGHT! Now time to give all you people something to stare at, go 'WTF!?' and move on. First thing for today.... I GOT SOMETHING DONE! Oh yeah, that's right! I created a replacement article for IPB to allow admins to replace non-existent profile pictures with avatars, as long as they have an avatar. I'm sure I didn't find everywhere on the main board but I got most of the essential places for it and I will eventually add the Blogs and Galleries as well. It was a sense of accomplishment of getting it working and then to be promoted on Coder's Refuge made be all the more happy! Why? Probably because I had this strong sense of accomplishment for the day. After I succeeded in this adventure I felt the need to not do anything for hours but I was unable to. I simply moved on to attempting more dangerous feats. Next.... I looked at the code I need to change *ie the CSS for the) blogs and then said "Screw that" and went to do other things. Like chat with people for a few hours and help my daughter work on her homework. Then, toward the end of my fantastically adventurous day I began to re-vamp Ebi1 R0ot! to be more scalable. This means that I adnventured into the dangerous land of Illustrator. It was scary. I had to keep my wits about me so I wouldn't throw my poor, defenseless, innocent computer across the room in frustration. Luckily I was successful and even more so when I created the new Ebi1 R0ot! Why do you ask? Mostly because I'd rather revamp him now instead of in a year. Another reason is that my brother helped me and lastly? Because he looks so much cuter now. You can see him at his site, Wootflakes WOW! Today really is a nothing to report sort of day. I haven't really much else to talk about. Successful coding, successful coloring (I even stayed in the lines) and successful ignoring things that I probably should have been doing. Kid stuff? Day 1 with the potty, still no interest but he does know that the thing makes a sound, he just doesn't know how yet. My daughter still has a cold and is coughing up a storm. I hope she feels better soon. You know, speaking of kids, I wish computers were cheaper and I had a bit extra money to buy two cheap laptops for my kids to use. They always want to play games on my laptop but I swear to god they are like master genius of messing up every setting known to man, even ones that haven't been made yet. It's like a black hole of settings and they know how to change every single one of them without a bat of an eyelash. At least on their own computers I wouldn't care what they did and I can disable access to evil things like the Internet and porn and things. Well probably, more specifically, pictures of me and my own websites. This site is certainly not intended for children. If it is, or it seems that way... You were completely mislead. OKAY! Now I think that's really it. Mostly because I'm tired and falling asleep at the keyboard again. Also my brain has melted from a day of awesome! Goodnight everyone. Hope you're having a good day. ^_^

    Strut

    So today's accomplishments!? NONE! Okay. I got one accomplishment, I got my forum/topic markers done today. I guess you can include that the members list looks better, I got the blog header working and I started work on the Profile. I'm a woman that loves a good profile and I HATE the default IPB one but I don't know what to do with it. It's like a necessary evil that I don't know how to make a "nice" necessary evil. I mean, I used to have one of the best profiles (and from a few compliments that I've heard) THE best profile in the 2.3.x series. I completely re-vamped my profiles to look the way I wanted them... Now I don't think I have the same amount of a reason for it because the new profiles look better but I don't know what to do with them.... They offer a lot more sex appeal then the older ones but not enough for me to be satisfied with them. So I didn't get much else done, mostly because I'm pretty sure it's that time of the month and my skin scrawls because I'm wearing clothes. I don't understand it really, I feel like a big ball of sensitive skin. I'll be glad when it's all over. About this though, I have two kids and when they are asleep I like to take long, hot baths... you know the quiet, uninterrupted sort that is really..... quiet, and well, is it just me or as a parent of young children do you get paranoid when you want/do something for you yourself? I turn on the bath water and immediately have to stick my head out of the door because I think I hear my son crying. Of course he never really is but it still doesn't make me any less paranoid. Next thing to talk about? My recent Twitter conversation with Sparky, AKA LOL_J on Twitter, got me thinking about dancing in public. Now I have no problem with shaking my ass for anyone's preview. I come from a family of very few reservations. We are all eccentric Addams family types in my household. But, as I talked with her I realized, as I always do, that I'm a woman that stands out in a crowd. I'm not necessarily skinny, actually probably not by a long-shot, but I still wear crop tops and things that show off my strangely colored legs. I wear medieval clothing in public, PJs. You name it and I've probably worn it in public, Yes.... even a bathing suit with nothing else. NO, I've never been nude in public. Off kilter there for a second, now I'm back on track. SO! I'm a 6'2", not so skinny "Amazon" woman that doesn't really have a self conscious bone in her body.... or so it would appear by the way I dance, shake my ass and sing, and terribly massacre songs, while I'm out and about. Now I come to think of why this is. I mean I know I'm not attractive and what-ot. I think I might do it for the attention but it's more likely I do it for the laughs. Like yesterday! Most epic thing. We were checking out of Sam's club, I do a deep hip shaking dip to "Fever" I think, and then there is this cheer from behind me. It's like this 70 year old man cheering at me shaking my ass. I had a good lol before I went back to doing my shaking. Why do I really do it? Because I enjoy, enjoying myself and really like to smile. What else? What else? Oh yes! I keep getting random comments that seem like real people but I mean they are just off enough to make me think that they are spammers. Really I don't understand why I have spammers on such a small site that no one really reads anyways. That being said I guess I will answer a few questions that I am unsure if bots are asking or real people. *I have approved most comments removing the bot-like link from their comment, sorry to anyone that is real that has had it removed.* Question1: Yes I run this on the Application, WordPress. I designed *or mostly designed, the original coding was from a template* the layout for the site. Question2: I try to update every day. Am I successful? Probably not but I do try. Two kids and looking for a job along with many other non-social activities and chores around the house=Not always the most successful at getting anything done. Question3: I don't care if you rate my site, bash my site, promote my site or whatever in your own blog. Please feel free! I just ask that you post a link to the source after you're done with it so I can read it. I'm fine with answering questions and whatnot so. :D I got my son a training toilet today. I hope that it will inspire him to start potty training. I'm so over diapers it's not even funny. I don't think he really understands, or cares to go potty yet so I don't know how successful it will be. *crosses fingers* here's hoping. I was talking earlier with my friend, Neph, about how crazy my thoughts can get sometimes. I only knew this from my late night post yesterday with the Random thought about brain melting. It just seemed overly odd to me that I would come up with that while tired and not while awake. I guess when your brain as less "active" functions to do then it has more time to be creative or think of odd things. Maybe it's what it's supposed to do... to confuse us. I think that's it for the night though. I know this seems like I'm cutting this post short... I am! I'm falling asleep at the keyboard which is a surefire sign to just stop typing and go to bed. Goodnight everyone. Hope you're having a nice day!
  12. I did a few things today, including spending more money then I could afford on pictures of my kids. Man I need a really awesome camera so I don't need to get pro pictures anymore, and maybe a lot more experience in photoshop. After the picture getting though I continued to vigorous work on my Wootflakes site layout and guess what? I currently believe I have one of the most epic layouts I have ever created. Go check it out: http://wootflakes.com It's purdy to me at least and optimized for larger screens. Sorry to anyone that has something smaller then a 1024x768, I'm not hindering my web design for you guys anymore. Why apologize? Well I don't need to, truly if you're still one a computer that the largest size screen you can get on it is 800x600 then you need to throw it in the trash and go get a new one. As for the layout itself, once I'm completely completed on it I will be making a few different renditions, mostly just changing the color of the box, probably a green, grey, pink, orange and maybe black. If you guys are lucky I'll create a block one but that will require more image edits then the rest of them. ^_^ What else did I do today that would be interesting material to talk about with strangers? OH! I watched Coraline and Whip It! Both fantastic movies, I suggest them highly. So far, I don't think I've seen an Ellen Page movie that I haven't liked. Not saying that I won't but she seems to be really good in what I've seen her in. Okay, not a long post today, not really anything done except my monumental success of a layout re-vamp! Totally stoked about all of this so yeah! <333 you all and Have a good day!
  13. So I'm not an amazing artist or anything, nor am I amazingly funny... Actually I'm not funny at all so you can tick that down as one of the things you know about me. BUT! Regardless of these flaws I have decided to make a webcomic to make Wootflakes more interesting!! Teh Ebi1 R0ot! has been introduced on his site in his debut comic: http://wootflakes.com/ I am still working out some layout kinks and deciding what all I am doing around the site but look forward to more webcomics!! I intend to make many without utter disregard for anyone actually liking the stupid thing! In other words: I am Disinclined to Acquiesce to your Request for a better, funnier webcomic. Putting it simply I'm not sure I will be able to meet your standards satisfactorily so I will just deny you now and save you the trouble of disappointment later on. NOW! If I happen to surprise you and actually make something good!? Don't get your hopes up, it was probably a fluke but I would love to hear your opinions, good and really good on my newest adventure into the world of not having a job and looking for things that my substantiate me. ^_^ Hope you are all having a fantastic day!

    Mid-Day update

    Well I'm posting a mid-day update. I think I have the layout tacked down pretty well. I really like it and it appears to look good in both FF and IE! YAY! So that being said I need to do some content updates, fix the About and Contact pages as well as adding a few others, and vuala all will be ready. I will probably be adding Google Adsense so that I can hopefully earn enough money to keep my websites going while I'm still on a job hunt. I think I will be looking into working for Census, if I can get a job there it will get me something for now. I still have to add some links and stuff to my sidebar, specifically to sites like, Twitter, DeviantArt, Facebook, a Gallery for pictures of me, my main site and I think that would be it. So look for those links!! Maybe I'll put up a poll to choose my next site to work on and complete. Which would you guys think? Wootflakes, CheesyGenius, Faerie-Reverie, CorruptedCarousel, Dragonheart-Costumes, or another page for Morrigan's Madness? Comment or tweet me @captainmorrigan
