My Mother's vision is my creation!

Recommended Posts

My Mom once spoke to me about a website I had, eleven years before I ever created such a website to go live. At the time, I just thought she was dreaming about crazy things because of the cancer and the morphine. Three days before she passed away, she clearly seen my website, which wasn't ever a thought in my mind. This is what she saw. I have lots to learn here. I'm not here showing my website because I want harsh criticism. I'm actually trying to re do all my website in CSS, as well as my java script functions and my Flash stuff.. I'm converting slowly over to html 5, and converting to CSS, until I can layout my whole website in CSS. And I wanted to show it off, because I can in here. I am proud of it, even if it does deserve harsh criticism; whether it be my unique layout, or the way it's software driven. I have to play catch up really fast in that department. I put all my heart, head and hard work into it.. I sure hope visitors will come to it, no matter how it's made. I did put a lot of learning hours into it through W3Schools. This is an awesome website, and inspires new website developers, such as myself!

 

I'm completely new here, and very new to website design; just not that new with computers. Anyway, I just wanted to create a blog, more less showing my ideas and concepts. So I made it totally a space age themed website. The visitor can actually walk right inside my imagination and he, she will start to walk a little more inside their own.

 

When I created this website, it took over 12 years to make all the pieces, even, after going live back in February 23, 2011.I'm still building and adding and learning lots about website development, and just all out having the time of my life, creating this website, which my Mom, somehow saw me create, eleven years later, way into my distant future! The space background, is actually dirty, yucky dishwater. I used photo shop to make the channel hues make the dirty water be a space age look. I did it all by accident, and loved it. Thanks to dirty, soapy water, I created my own space art. Now you know how my universe was created. lol

 

Anyway, here is my ultimate website masterpiece.

 

SPACEUPHORIA. Everything is possible!

Suitable for all ages. Get ready to jump in the universe and travel much faster than the slow speed of light!

Welcome to SPACEUPHORIA. The website where everything is possible!

I sure hope you enjoy yourself!

I really wanted to make and keep my own images. I do most of them out of ping images now. I use gif, only to animate things, or make some of my weird graphic text out of gif to make it light up brighter. But ping is nicer, but I have to worry about the user being able to get to my website fast. I do have flash animations and such; all my own things. All I did was to make the site more fun, was to find weird youtube videos of anything weird to do with Aliens, UFO stuff and giant bugs and things. Some youtube stuff is my own things. Other than that, I want to remain keeping my own images, even if they aren't crystal clear in some of my images, I do now and then replace them as I build better and better all the time. So, I feel if I keep my own stuff, it makes my website, totally unique and purposely very different from the way most are laid out. So I wanted it to be as different as me. I don't mean anything to do with being gifted, or that. I just simply wanted to create a horse with a different colour, but I also want true, blue Webmasters to help me, such as you and the other teacher, who've helped me very much. I consider you as a teacher, even if you're not. You sure taught me something, which revolutionized my whole website.. I have to stead-faster ever more, than ever before, as the one teacher said to me. I NEED TO IMPROVE! And that's exactly why I'm here. I want to become a true, blue Webmaster, just like you guys are, no matter how younger or older. It's the learner, not the age. Just seek and seek and seek, and yah shall find! :) That's all I can ever do to achieve my own website design glory. I have to do this for my Mom. I sure owe her that much in me. She ventured way out into spaceuphoria, way before I ever got to go there myself to realize she was dead right! I'm taking W3shool to my ultimate maximum learning, as much as I truly can, with others here, such as yourself, myself. I sure hope that someday, I will be able to teach others here.... I can't wait to go there someday. First, I need to be taught, as well as learning out of this website, we use. I love them try-it-yourself pages. I call them LABS. They work great for making code work. I then take the lab to my actual website and do live learned and hard earned experience, using my brain and my imagination in the very same instance. This is a very honest website. Whoever made this website had a mind full of generosity to help others teach themselves about anything to do with website development. I come here all the time. My website was created from its LABS. And they are free to use. Free education here, and all you need is a computer and some drive to strive. I'm building my entire website out of here, until the cows come home! And that's all there is to it!

 

Thank you Dave for stopping buy, and your input is much appreciated. The images must remain my own, but I am getting better at making them look more real as time goes on. I'm a cave man right now. lol I have to learn to create a lot of things still. Especially the turn over from html 4 now html 5, just hit back in 2012, and I was still a cave man then. But give me time to evolve and just watch it happen, as I break away from the old dinosaur.

I have to worry about the user being able to get to my website fast.

If you're worried about loading speed, you should not be using images to show text. You have several paragraphs and things that are images of text instead of normal text. Not only are images larger than the equivalent text would be, but search engines can't find that text, people can't copy the text, etc. Images should never be used for showing text unless it is a logo or something like that.

I'm converting all that. I didn't know how to set the old way with the fonts. But I'm replacing all my fake text. lol Some graphics text is part of the look and the feel, but the other way of the text was just something to stabilize my website's text, until I got better with CSS, which I will use the control all my fonts. Yes, I do see a whole whack of changes, I have to make. give a about a good month, and I won't look too bad anymore. I wanted to create something different, but I do want my real fonts, so others can copy my text, if they like. I would love to know, if I can create a logical header instead of it being on my website. I need that for my weird title, being my visual header, or whatever. Thanks for your help. I do see my problem. I will fix it over some quick time to half rebuild my website. Some of my titles have to remain as graphics, so my website will maintain its space age layout.......

It's a bit dull tbh.

 

I think if you added some more colour, you'd keep your audience looking at the site for a lot longer.

Although it's a little difficult for me to understand your meaning, I agree with your opinions. However, too much colors will make a website unfriendly..
