About the Layout

I haven't worked with yellow in a while. It's refreshing. When making this layout, the theme in my mind was "making the pieces fit together." More about the layout

About Wacky Onion

Wacky Onion is mainly a site I run in my free time. The vast majority of the content in here are made by me. Some might call WO a blog/personal site, and I do too, even though I don't blog very much. It's here where I let the creativity, rants, and (the little) artistic talent that I have. Although this is my personal/blog site, I try to keep it visitor-centered.

History of Tee and The Sites

Fresh Start

Here's the history of me, Tee, and how I got into the web design.
I joined Neopets when I was nine years old. Back then, I used to see all the fancy userlookups and guild layouts and they looked, well, shiny. No, I did not have parental consent back then. I signed up for an account posing as a 17 year old. Believe it or not, it actually worked! (Partly because I acted like a noob) Anyway, I joined up in a guild and became pretty active. I asked for help around the guild boards and the Neoboards and at HTML guides. Then I gradually learned HTML and CSS through trial and error along with a whole lot of headdesking. After a while, I became staff of an old Neo-related website called Neo-Luvrs until the mid-2007.

First, Second, and Third Sites

After said work, I opened my first site, NeoZgraphix. It wasn't a sucess, but I learned from there. BubbledGraphix was my second site. It was a noobish site, I admit, but I gain some affiliates. BG closed down because of some obscure reason. 6 months later, I opened my third site, Crazed Graphics.

Note: If you're an old affiliate/visitor of mine, you remember that the site was Crazedgraphics.net, not a freewebs one. Well, the domain expired and I accidentally deleted the content in the Awardspace site, so I had to link it back to the Freewebs one.

Continuation of the Sites

Crazed Graphics was still doing OK during that period of time. But it was closed because, at that time, swimming was becoming an obsession of mine. That was before, though. Almost a year later, after I had quit swimming, I opened my fourth site, Mind static. Mind Static didn't do very well, though. After a few months I closed it down, partly because of frustration and partly because a band already had the name.

Now

Now Wacky Onion is the best site of them all and the oldest. Hopefully I won't close Wacky O down. History of Wacky O below:

History of the Wacky Onion!

I assume you're here because you want to know about WO's history and such. I'm here to tell you. ^^ I first started Wacky Onion on July the first, two thousand and nine. After 9 days of toiling, Wacky Onion got up and running. I had a fair amount of content: about 10 pages. Then came the same old thing: updating, applying for affiliates, advertising, the same old routine. Finally, Wacky Onion is where it was today.

Until...December 2009 rolled around. Some of you may remember my blog post about my mom's fibroid. Surgery and recovery came and went. By that time I was too occupied with real life to update. January came with a medium amount of updates, February slightly less, March, so on. When May came I wasn't even updating at all. I had gotten out of the habit of doing so. That was my Great Inactivity Period.

Then July came. One day I was browing the Internet, when I suddenly remember Wacky Onion. It was almost its first birthday. When I arrived at the homepage, I noticed that it sorely needed updates. I being awesome, immmediately swung into action, and-Wait a minute... I didn't do that! XD I just slept it out, thinking of options for Wacky O. Should I close Wacky O? That would be like my old sites. Or should I boot it up again? That sounded good, but it would take a lot of work. In the end I booted it up again, and that's where Wacky Onion is today! I really am glad that I did not shut it down. Thank you, visitor, for reading this. You help Wacky Onion a lot!

Thanks for reading!
