Hidama.net was originally purchased by me in 2007, for which it lasted one year. in 2011, I decided to grab the name again and have maintained it since. Hidama is the Japanese word for “meteor” or “falling star” and has always been one of my favorite words. This domain is very precious to me and has undergone many changes since I first had it 9 years ago, and will probably undergo a few more in the next few years should I continue to have the means to maintain it.
I have about 14+ years of graphic design skills under my belt, though they’re clearly diminishing, but I have all of my old website layout headers saved and would like to put them into a portfolio of sorts. This is a pretty daunting task, and may warrant its own subdomain, but it is a project that I have in the works. My layouts, themselves, serve as diary entries and are very dear to me.
I used to have tons of fanlistings until they were all closed for inactivity when my domain was going through the brunt of some of my financial turmoil. I’ve since applied for some new ones and I intend to keep only a few this time around. It’s part of the fandom aspect I want to hold on to with this website, and another project I will be working on in addition to my others.
