I've finally got my lazy ass to work on a few things on Nekonette and added a couple of Wordpress tutorials there. I've also posted an update on Amalina.org (yes, FINALLY!) and I'm going to actually work on the back-end of Kitty-Kat.org.

Keeping up with a lot of websites is not easy. Creating them is a piece of cake and building them is a lot of fun, but to manage them needs determination and discipline. Two things I lack, apparently. For example, sometimes I wish I could just close down most of them and concentrate on one or two since it'd be a hell lot easier that way, but after considering how much time and effort I've spent into each one of them, closing down seems like a waste of those efforts. A (seemingly) easy solution to it is to merge the websites together. In fact, I've been pondering countless times if I should just merge Codeislove.net with Amalina.org, after all, both websites deal with web development topics. I even consider moving the stuff on Codeislove.net over to Amalina.org and use the CMS script I developed there (I named it Scribe) to power the contents. However, since most of the tutorials on Codeislove.net are for Blogger, it would only make sense if I have them hosted under Blogger, wouldn't it?

To give you an idea how tough it is to manage several websites, here's a complete list of the websites I currently own:

Nekonette.com - personal website
Kitty-Kat.org - secondary personal website for mindless rambles
Codeislove.net - a shack containing articles and tutorials mostly related to Blogger
Amalina.org - testing ground for a blogging script I developed
Serenified.net - website for my book listing
CREATIV Themes Shoppe – website which offer paid services for website layouts/themes
Fleurelle.net - Tumblr blog
Eternalitia - a fanlisting for Helios Eclipse comic
Across the time - a fanlisting for Final Fantasy X-2 song (1000 no Kotoba)

Closed ones:
Chibiholic.net - my very own first domain name. I had this before Nekonette
Teaching Practice Journal - records of my teaching practice
Purrfectly.me - a failed attempt to making a graphic/drawing portfolio

So you can see how stressful it can be to manage those websites. I can't dedicate my attention equally on them because some obviously require more attention than others but all the same I do feel guilty for neglecting the others.


It's time for the Q&A again! Post your questions in the comment section. You can ask me anything with as many questions as you like and I will try my best to answer them all but please refrain yourself from asking too personal questions. :)

wow... you're being productive eh? ahha... good good.. indeed, it is fun to open a new site but to KEEP it is something else haaha XD I have to agree with you, there are times that I feel like closing and opening and merging and searching for a co-web but in the end, I just keep them and promise myself to work hard on it. I have to divide my "website development book" into four now : dorkistic, d-chazz, shinpanda and my teaching journal and this not including my deviantart, tumblr and working at other sites but at the end of the day, you just feel happy to see your babies aite? XD

The designer

Kitty

Kitty. 29. Blogger, web design hobbyist, compulsive shopper and bibliophile based in Brunei. Enjoys creating and designing websites, dabbling with HTML, CSS and PHP.

I've been blogging since 2005 (or earlier) though my experience with the internet started back in 2000. My main interest is in web design and development. Other times you can see me wrapped around a book or glued to Astronomy and web design magazines.

The website

This website was created in January 2011 and the domain was purchased by me in late December 2010. Initially the website was intended to house tutorials for Classic Blogger/Blogspot only however over the time it has developed into what you see today.

Several of the tutorials and articles can also be found on Nekonette.com, which is the my main website where I mostly blog about my personal life. Also some of the tutorials here have been moved to that website.
