Bye Bye Tumblr

15 Dec 2018 07:08 PM  

In a few days Tumblr will be bidding a fond farewell to its NSFW content, and subsequently over half of its userbase.

This has prompted me to update the Archive and take care of a few template elements that I've been too lazy to mess with recently. It's been many years since I've had to rely on other sites to host my content, and places like AO3 and Dreamwidth that allow for full freedom of creative expression are few and far between.

I don't know where I was going with this. Updates are coming and I'm going to give bent-halo.net a facelift in 2019. That is all!

In addition to continuing the importation process of all my old fics, I'm also working on tidying up some of the site templates and categories, making things a bit easier to read and navigate and everything. I'm also going to be working on some new skins here soon (like this new default I made, based on AO3's appearance), including an option that'll be easier on the eyes. Keep an eye out for it. (Ha, y'see what I did there? ...jeez I have no life.)
