But I don’t have time to deal with site redesigns right now. /nonsequitur. You may have noticed that Storied is gone. The initial wave of interest dissipated, and I decided I didn’t want to deal with constant Joomla and plugin updates if nobody was actively using the site.
Emma bidness. I’ve noticed a fair amount of Miss Woodhouse-inspired items listed on Etsy. My favorite so far is this tiny Emma Woodhouse Mouse.
And whilst I lag on my own Emma 4 episode 3/4 screencaps, you can peruse other people’s. Laurel Ann discovered a huge collection of E4 caps on Livejournal.
Also. Masterpiece Classic has an Emma 4 site up. Airdates will be sundays, January 24-February 7, 2010.
Random updates to the Emma Adaptations Pages to follow.
I recently created an index page for Emma 4 at the Emma Adaptations Pages. Hopefully that’ll help keep things organized!
I’ve also closed Storied, our writing workshop. I think everybody’s just too busy to write these days!
Storied, our brand new roleplay and writing workshop.
We’re still working out the bugs (and I’ll be retemplating it once the semester’s over), but it’s generally ready to go. Consider this a beta testing phase. 🙂
Have a happy holiday season, everyone!
The big news of the moment: I’m writing an article on fashion in the Northanger Abbey adaptations for my friend Laurel Ann’s “Go Gothic” festival at Austenprose Blog. It’s set to publish on October 15. If you’re a fan of Jane Austen, you’ll really enjoy her blog!
Now for the boring stuff:
Kali enjoys simplifying her internet life. Kali also has trouble letting go of past projects that have outstripped their usefulness. This means that Kali has trouble making decisions as to what to update and what to delete.
I’m in the process of redesigning and otherwise generally cleaning up Better Haunts & Graveyards. The current design is something like six years old, and it looks it. Once that’s out of the way, Halloween-tree.com and Livadia.org are going to have their days of reckoning.
Right now, I’m thinking I’ll just merge the Halloween site with Better Haunts; there isn’t enough left to justify its continued independent existence. As for the Romanov site, I’m torn. On one hand, it looks old and we just don’t have the time or interest to update it anymore. Further, all it seems to do in its current limbo state is invite image-ganking bandwidth thieves and freaky Russian spam. On the other hand, it would sincerely suck to see all of our hard work on the scrapbooks and such go down the crapper. As usual, I’m the queen of indecision.
In other news, Strawberry Canyon and Desire are closing up shop. The current plan per Marsha and myself is to open up a new, joint writing workshop with no sim and a broader focus. I think most of us were bored with the figure skating premise.
When will it debut? Not a clue. Probably sometime before Christmas.
