after banging on for a few hours and gathering links from across the internet to re-spruce up this dusty old corner of my life, i discovered scrollkit - basically a what-you-see-is-what-you-get web editor for people too busy to learn code. i scrolled on to a couple of sample sites and hey, i've always wanted to do the whole-website-on-one-page,just-scroll-on thing, complete with parallax scroll and sexy graphics.
(for example, check out the most awesome police website in the world.)
then i realised that me + css/html/php/java = nothing, but me + internet sandbox (scrollkit) = scary 1990s geocities-style website with flashing banners and psychedelic colors, so i should probably stick to me + weebly template for the foreseeable future.
though it would be nice to combine poetry with good web design. too often poetry online = blank white wordpress/blogger template, or cheesy geocities-era repositories with liberal use of comic sans MS. (in loving memory of geocities, here is the geocities-izer, a tool to make any webpage look like it was made by a small child in 1995).
though of course i suppose the children of 2030 will look back at our tumblrs all decked out with animated gifs and bizarre cartoon memes, and think, ew, so 2010s.
