Welcome to the Mukky's World website!

And welcome to the future...

I'm Mukky, and this is my website! Here, you'll find blog posts, videos, and more. This post stays up here, as well as the latest 3 updates.

Parts of this website are a work in progress, links may not work!

I Love The Internet

I've only just begun my journey into exploring the outer web!

You may have noticed some changes on my website if you've been visiting over the past 24 hours, there's now a bunch of buttons, the links page is up, and hey see that cool thing on the right? hell yeah. Cool people, cool websites!! There was even a music player! (which I removed because it broke parts of the site, looking into alternitives!)

I've decided I'm gonna stop pinning so many websites to my browser, and keep start adding buttons to my site and using that to bookmark things! As you can see, it hasn't even been that long and I've already got a handful of awesome links! HUGE thank you to the peeps who submitted their links to me, if you wanna get added to the links page, send an email to baz.leverdesign@gmail.com with the subject line "Website Button - [YOUR SITE NAME HERE]" and I'll check it out!

I'm already looking to either start or join a webring, and the more I explore other's websites, the more inspired I get to add more cool things to my website!! I'm probably gonna axe the "Contact" page, put that info in the Profile page, and replace it with a "For You" page that'll include some neat goodies for other netizens to take and use as they see fit.

I've also gone and made my own button for y'all to use if you wanna add me to your website!! Check it out:

Pretty neat, huh?

I've learnt that working on my website and exploring other people's websites is like, totally my kind of hyperfixation. I don't think I've been this hyperfocused on something in many, many years. I feel like a kid again, and my imagination is running wild!!

The face of 'Mukky's World' is very public facing, and I feel feel like I wanna go ahead and create a new website that's a lot more personal, something where I can just add page after page of unique and cool web stuff, without having to worry about uniformity like I do for this website. Doesn't mean I'm gonna abandon this website at all, no of course not, this is my blog after all! Having two cool sites would just mean I can express myself more in a internet-y way :3

While I've got you here, here's a bunch of really cool websites I've found while exploring the web!

First we've got sadgirl.online, while it's now in an inactive "archived" state, it's still an inavaluable resource for those looking to get into building their own web spaces, like this one!

Lulu's website feels special. You can just feel the passion ooze from this page. It's full of amazing pages and interesting words, as well as some fun stuff!! If you love the old web, do yourself a favor and check out this one. Websites like these are what the internet was made for

I don't have too much to say about this one, it's just cool. Kit's mamaged to make their website's aesthetic just so...... on point...... I need to have a few pages that capture this vibe. Giving this a "Hell yeah".

Warp.zone is a treat for the eyes. The originality seen in the creation of this website is something to be marveled at, it's just so.... COOL!!!! Jumping from page to page gives me this feeling of excitement just wondering what's around the corner, it's so pretty!!!

If you wanna see all the websites I find cool or interesting, check out the Links page! I'm gonna be diving deeper and deeper into the web, and I hope you do too!!

If there's one takeaway from my exploration and creation, it's that making a website is super easy, and with neocities, it's free too! Everyone Should make a website. You should make a website!! I wanna see your website!!!!!!! Social media is a scourge! Bring back community!!! I'll stop now before I write a manifesto; because that's gonna be it's own page soon enough >:)

Keep exploring!! Be unashamedly yourself!! I'll see you in the next one :P

Testin' Stuff

My website should be so much easier to update now!

If you haven't noticed any changes to the website, good! These updates I've been working on have been very behind-the-scenes, and very hacked together!

I wanted to do as much as possible using only HTML and CSS, to maintain not only that old look, and feel, but old way of doing things. I don't think I achieved that last part very well though lol.

So what I've got set up right jow is very janky, and I mean it. The header, left and right sidebars, footer, and even CSS are all HTML files that get loaded from this file I call "AssetWorld".

Asset World

As you can see, it's not the most ideal way of doing things, (CSS in a HTML file?! you may ask, for some reason, the CSS I've got doesn't work in a CSS file, but it does work if written in a HTML file with style tags) but it's my way of doing things. Since I'm the one who made it, it makes a lot of sense to me!

I tried looking up how to use a Static Site Generator (or SSG) but for the life of me couldn't figure out how to actually get the thing to work. Now, I'm no luddite, but I'm far from the tech-savvy computer-wizz my parents think I am. I'm failing my fellow trans girlies by not being computer smart enough for that kinda thing.

However! This system is going to work for me, I think. I don't need to make massive sweeping changes to my website, and if I do, it shouldn't be too hard to go through and replace a few lines here and there. With any luck, I'll be able to keep this site simple and retro, and just optimise or tweak small things here and there. Basically, the framework, the skeleton, of the website, is complete. I can get around to fleshing out the pages that are still under construction, and finally have this thing as an honest-to-gods portfolio website. Pretty neat!

I'll start by fleshing out the "Links" page (HUGE thank you to y'all who sent me your personal websites, I'll be sure to include them!) and then move on to the "Contacts" page. Once those are done, it's time to get started on the Gallery. I'm unsure exactly what form that page will take, but I'm just gonna wait and see what works. It might be something completelty seperate from the main site, if I feel like that's the right way to go. This is a learning journey for me, that's for sure!

Anyways, next blog post will likely be about the different web pages that people sent me, I'm gonna do some exploring and then do a writeup! I plan to make a video on cool indie web pages someday, maybe once my next video about Minecraft video is complete.

If you like what you've been seeing and you're interested in supporting my work, please consider joining my Patreon or throwing a buck or two into the Tip Jar. Things have been a little uncertain since I left F-Class, and I'm trying to find other means of income, so any support you throw my way is greatly appriciated.

Thanks for reading, and see you in the next one!

I Complete Dark Souls 3 Every Year

My comfort game

My second YouTube video is here! This time, it's about Dark Souls 3 and why I think it's really cool

The video mainly touches upon how my familiarity with the game has caused it to become somewhat of a comfort game for me, a digital home away from home where I can just sink a few hours into whenever I'm feeling lost or alone. I talk about parts of the gameplay I like, the systems, and the gameplay loop that I enjoy.

There's parts of the script and recording that I totally could have done better; I feel like I need to slow down when I'm getting through the script for one, as I've stumbled over my words without realising until I'm already editing haha. I also think I need to get a dedicated microphone to record with, using just my phone with a pop filter on top isn't the greatest setup of all time lol

The next video will be about my silly little minecraft village. I'm going to try and get videos uploaded onto my Patreon first when they're completed, and then on YouTube on mondays.

Hope y'all have been enjoying these thusfar, I'm going to try and keep it weekly, aim for a 10 minute~ video as they're easy enough to do.

See ya soon!
