In the early 2000's, I was about 10 years old when I learned HTML & CSS to decorate my Neopets shop and pet pages. Eventually I stumbled on cute pixel art sites and personal sites, BBS's like Candy Town & Teahouse, oekaki boards, dollz makers, and more. I miss seeing all the cute art and creative website designs so I decided to create one in December 2021 using Neocities.
I had made so many different personal websites and had been on Geocities, Tripod, Homestead, Angelfire, etc over the years. I was even hosted by some kind people too! Unforunately, I don't remember any of my site names or what user/names I was using then. Since I was young, I never used my real name online and would go by a different name every so often. From what I can remember, my art and websites weren't particulary good anyway!
This was the only decent pixel that I could find that I made in 2005:
Version 1 - Pink Nostalgia (2021-2022)
I originally designed the image for my SpaceHey profile and then I turned it into a layout for my site. I wanted to go for a simple compact kind of style because I always liked tiny layouts. I made Notepad-like content boxes since that's what I would use for coding my stuff back in the day and I also added a lace border that was really popular (still is, maybe?) for the smaller boxes.
Version 2 - Purple Mushroom RPG (2023-)
