Lately, I’ve been working on re-archiving past layouts I’ve made for my sites. I say “re” because I had a site that archived them before, but I stopped updating in 2008. I wanted to re-code the site and also take better screenshots of the layouts.
Well… I procrastinated. I finally moved the site to WordPress, and now it’s back up: Distant Memory.
I didn’t archive all of my sites. From 1999 to now, I’ve created over 40 sites. During my earlier webdesigning years, I also changed layouts every month (which drove me crazy when I was archiving Shattered Wings). Apparently when I was younger, I had a lot more time for this stuff ^^;;
I tried to archive only the major sites I’ve done, and well… also ones that weren’t too embarrassing. It is fun to look back on past works, but there is a lot of “*facepalm* I can’t believe I did that” moments. For example, here are some of my earliest works:
Rain of Blood – March 2001
Dark Abyss – December 2001
Shattered Wings – February 2002
Hachi Roku – June 2002
Pretty bad, huh? XD;; Do you ever look back on past works?
