After a long time of not doing much of anything with this site, I have decided to work on it more and start a blog. This is that blog. In this post, I will lay out my goals for concon.soy.
I began this website ~2 months ago. The original name of the website was connor7000.neocities.org, before I quickly became a Neocities supporter and registered a custom domain. I was originally primarily inspired by my friend's website, konakona.moe. In fact, this site's name is directly inspired by it as well. This website's original incarnation was very barebones with absolutely no CSS. All it really had was a short welcoming paragraph and my contact info. I did a few other things like add a page about my favorite band, Ween and a Guestbook which is still on the website. I had a perfectly functional personal website, so I was mostly satisfied with it and left it alone for the time.
Eventually, I would do more exploring on Neocities and find all sorts of interesting websites. On these website, I found link repositories which led me to even MORE interesting websites! I had discovered a whole new world, Web 1.0. These people, land chads, as I like to call them, existed in their own bubble where they interact with each other and write blog posts. My interest would grow, and I was inspired to rework this website.
As I looked for ways to improve my website, I looked to my idols. The websites and their owners which I respected the most. I have taken parts of their websites, consciously and unconsciously, and put them into my own. I got the layout of this site from sadgirl.online's layout builder, which allowed me to make a website that doesn't look like complete garbage. I frankensteined together the perfect website, my magnum opus.
All of that is to say that I plan on updating my blog regularly, so be sure to check in every once in a while. Thanks for reading!!!
