Did you notice the change in the background? If you haven’t, you’re probably too new here to have caught that… for those that did, I hope that something in your mind said “hey, what’s with the different thing?” That’s what I would like to mention.
When I bought Lime Flavored.com way back in 2000, I wanted a website that could be quirky and emulate one (or more) of the websites that I found interesting back at the time. As time went on, those sites I wanted to emulate changed but I wanted to emulate someone. I’ve had some favorite designs but overall, I’ve been fairly dissatisfied with the results and 14 years later, Lime Flavored.com has been born again and trying to become something new, some truly original.
Whether the fault lies with just me or has been the inconsistency over the years, Lime Flavored.com has been many things but almost none of them have stuck around long enough to get any traction. That, in my eyes, means it’s time for a fresh start.
Over the course of the next few months I’ll be altering the website to reflect the new identity, the new URL. Lime Flavored.com will shortly become empty, dead, whatever, and will be replaced by something that has no history, no track record, and nothing associated with it. Those who are inquisitive enough, or smart enough, will figure out what the new URL is within a few minutes and the rest of you will just have to wait until I announce the change.
I’m not blasting the site clean. I’m not uninstalling and reinstalling anything. From this moment on, things will slowly transition and just like the WWE, I’ll slowly stop calling myself one thing and start calling myself another. When that new thing starts is when I’ll try to kick the new vision into high gear.
Lime Flavored.com lasted from January 4, 2000 to July 12, 2014… essentially. I will actually retain control of the domain name in the hopes someone would like to buy it and use it for something different, but the new domain name will become my new online identity.
This is your warning. Don’t be shocked when more things change, because they WILL change. Just know that I’m altering my online identity and that should result in a renewed vigor for creativity.
I’m moving to a new place, why not start online fresh, too?
