I don't know how many people actually read my blog. If you do, wow thank you. Anyhow, it's going on hiatus for now. It already paused a few weeks ago, wanted to formally announce it I guess.
The reason is simple, it's September and I'm back to school. Writing takes me usually a lot of energy and time, which I currently do not have. It will return, not sure when.
I went to a vacation with my parents for a week, I'm back now and my mind feels very refreshed. I'm ready to write a looot of things hehe.
Also, thank you for 16k unique views on this page! A bit cliché to say this but I really never expected my dumb little website to have so many eyes laid on it. Kind of makes me nervous, but it also feels great to have the stuff I create actually interest people. I never had that attention in real life, so I guess I assumed it wouldn't happen online. I usually don't care about attention but it's goddamn 16k! Imagine 100 people in a room. Now make that 160 rooms. That's a lot of people.
Kinda insane, man.
I think I took a complete wrong direction with the 2nd entry of Sonic Stories and I will rewrite it completely. I will also be more careful when writing, due to ADHD I tend to not re-read what I wrote and it ends up being very hard to read. I just want to find a better direction for this series I'm enjoying a lot creating, even if it is unecessary. I will try to state less the obvious in the future. Also Master System/Game Gear coming after Sonic 2. Very excited for those.
I automated almost entirely my art page. I only have to provide the filename and description, then the html code is written for me. The date is automatically taken from the computer's clock. The image is also uploaded (it errors in the screenshot because the file does not exist, but I tried it, works!) All I have to do is copy-paste the code. I can always change the text, it's mostly idiot-proof. Though maybe, I should add a third input for alt text because a filename does not help blind people much. God bless the blind people looking at a drawings page!
Probably the first instance I used my own coding skills to do something that helps me in my daily life. I'm not sharing the code because I code like shit, and it only works with my own files anyways.
