Iâ€™ve been working on my webpage!
Originally, and this might be the dorkiest way to end up with a webpage ever, but Originally, I had a space.com mailing address. I loved that address. Before Originally, I had a chickmail address, and I loved that one too. But then chickmail went defunct. I searched so hard for a cool, fun, funky web-based email address. I did NOT want yah0o mail or h0tmail, because they are terrible spaminators, and I wanted a less common name. When I found space.com I thought it was a perfect match, because I love outer space. We had nearly two glorious years together, and then my Space mail went defunct too.
I was so upset! Frustrated! Angry! So I thought maybe I should buy my domain, because I had heard one could get cool webbased email, like I was looking for, and hey, maybe I DID want a webpage.
I didnâ€™t know if I should actually purchase anything because I donâ€™t have a computer at home. What I do have is a visor handspring edge, with a stowaway keyboard, and a desk job as an engineer with a handy computer. I thought it would be silly to have a webpage and no computer at home! But, I also thought, what if someone else took karinajean.com? Theyâ€™ve already taken my nickname and my last name and my first nameâ€¦ so I took the plunge. I bought the domain.
Now, some kind of general explanations in case there are any questions. I donâ€™t know html, and my cheapy hosting doesnâ€™t include any bells and whistles so Iâ€™d have to hard-code everything. Therefore, Iâ€™m making these pages using word. Yeah, yeah, I know, word sucks, itâ€™s clumsy, and my source looks nasty. But until I get a computer at home, I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ll be able to spend any time learning html.
I donâ€™t really know what to write in this area â€“ I just want to get writing. I donâ€™t write much at all anymore. I used to keep a multi-volume journal, called my cooter. But that was when I could write and write and write in class and it looked like I was taking notes. Those days are over. I donâ€™t take notes any more. Not in class, anyway. Itâ€™s all a big experiment! And it is the interweb, so I know that nothing is private and there is the possibility this page will float around in the great google cache memory for ever and ever.
