Or, Would Old Content Be Worth Bringing Back?
* * *
Once upon a time, back in 1998, I started my website(sans domain) to share my love of SG-1 and sharing my fic came later. I had icons, wallpapers, random SG-1 graphics like DHD schematics and the SG-1 patches. There were a few types of episodes lists. The standard, then an episode list that had only Goa’uld in it, and which ones. I use SG icons myself–ones I’ve created–to customize my file manager and make it quicker to locate a folder. For example, I have an SG-1 patch for my SG-1 fic folder and a feather for my Joysgate folder–the same one that’s this site’s icon. There’re others.
One day, I was feeling very blue. Very fed up, stressed out, and I just deleted everything on my website. I got this depressive bug up my ass, thinking that if no one was going to donate, screw everyone and everything. I threw a stupid, childish tantrum. I had already copied all of my fic to Archive of Our Own, so my website sort of felt superfluous. I couldn’t tell if I was getting anywhere. Over time, and a few different web hosts and *medications*, I’ve altered my attitude.
Point is, I’m still not so sure that a lot of content would be useful for visitors since SG-1 is no longer an active show, and there’s a Vast Difference between Current and Ended. Sigh. But we fans will always read the fic, won’t we? 😉 I’ll still post stories, though they’d be new ones. Just the thought of reposting all of my work makes me want to go listen to an audiobook and play video games. :-p
So, if you’re interested in me putting in more content, let me know. I can’t bring back the old wallpapers (if you even remember them) b/c a computer crash five years ago or so has made them inaccessible, but I could create some new ones with some interesting wallpaper designs I’ve come across. The main header for this site, see above, is taken from a wallpaper collage I created last year sometime. I think it was last year.
Anyways, thanks for reading and feedback is very much welcome.
