The first design for Windchime when it was first made. I like this version because of its colorfulness! I also like that compact yet clean look. Alas, it wasn't the most efficient... For many reasons. I had a lot of advert banners for my pages, but... none of the pages were actually working yet...

I also had no idea what the other pages should look like. I had planned a unique layout for the shrines and digest pages, respectfully, but everything else, I had no clue. I feel bad ranking it so poorly, but it was just not useful. Sometimes, design is not everything, I've learned.

The first major design change to Windchime, and the second overall change. Better! I like this one because it looks a bit more professional but still personal.

I try to plan the building of something that you want people to look at and visit often ahead of time. At this point, I figured that the website would look best and possibily be more memorable to viewers if it had a specific look rather than each page being unique with a different design.

Again, not the most efficient design, it was a pain to update the site because I wasn't using iframes at the time. But an improvement from before. There were some actual existing pages, and I knew how to design each one when I didn't have to tackle the entire page and just had to worry about styling the content itself.
