Probably sometime last week, some of you may have stumbled upon my blog, only to learn that the server has gone down. What caused the almost 5-6 days of downtime isn’t from my part, nor that it’s a heavy technical issue. The issue is a lot deeper and personal from the management side of things. Luckily, things have been resolved and now I am back…
That is, back along with a domain and a different extension: ADRICULOUS.life. So, this is what happens when you are feeling a major withdrawal syndrome from you personal niche-less blog that you start to think about the future of this blog. You also start thinking about making a few changes here and there, but still continue on with the same purpose. I have gone through my very old archives that I backed up from two weeks ago, and noticed that this blog is just truly random, covering different types of subjects, topics, and other types of randomness derived from my everyday life. Yes, my love for Final Fantasy XV and other video games mentioned in this blog through the course of some nine years1 are a part of my life. The food that I loved to talk about, the (East) Asian skincare routine also became part of my life,2 the meetups that I’ve been attending, and so on and so forth.
During these 4-5 days of downtime, I actually thought about moving a new host. I was truly desperate, especially that I have my forum and my friend’s author site and blog at risk of getting lost, as well as my portfolio also. For my portfolio, I used my GitHub Pages account as a temporary home with temporary/outdated information about myself. And then, of course, there are the others.
The entire plan was all written out on the LVI! timeline section earlier today, so please read that if you’re curious about my plans for the future. For the time being, please follow me on Twitter for all the site updates with my collective. Unlike most collective owners, I don’t have a separate Twitter account just for LVI! or even this blog or anything else.
I still gotta set up more with the new host3 and move a few sites to here. Other than that, good to go.
Last, but not necessarily the least, I have recently gotten addicted to the Buddha Board. Recently it’s been helping me out with my brush art skills, but at the same time, it’s helped me down with my stress issues when the server was down for days. Lastly, I finally was able to visit the Hello Kitty Cafe when it made its appearance in the Santana Row high-scale shopping area of San Jose. Those stories with accompanying images are all available in my good ol’ Instagram.
Awrighty. Bedtime. Till next time!
