Mirrorsoul is a personal/collective/gateway domain. It's that little something that's wholly mine - something that I paid for, something that I created, something I can share or withdraw at will. Call me selfish. Or neurotic.
If you're wondering what mirrorsoul actually means, the answer is simple - it doesn't matter. Whatever you come up with is what it means. Everyone interprets things differently and I have no reason to impose an arbitrary definition. Break it up, and you get mirror and soul - a relfection of the soul. And everyone sees something different. I came up with when I was brainstorming for domain names and it resonated. It fit. So now it's here.
I started making web pages in sixth grade. My first attempts were hosted at tripod.com and were northing more than clumsily personalized easy web builder pages. Embarassing.
The next year I took my first computer class and as part of it, had to make a site with Netscape Composer. Though somewhat more sophisticated than my previous endeavors, that particular set of pages weren't anything to be proud of either. I moved to angelfire.com.
I was then dormant on the web design front for something like half a year until the discovery of full moon graphics (as I was far too lazy and unoriginal at that point to actually MAKE layouts) drove me back to the keyboard. After using two theme layouts from full moon, I then moved to envy.nu and began my first serious foray into design.
Eventually I began looking to get hosted - but not being patient enough to wait for an offer or acceptance, I decided to get my own domain. Wynterchylde.com.
After an year with wynterchylde and numerous server problems, I decided to switch servers - and to leave wynterchylde behind with it. However, being a terribly sentimental person, I couldn't bear to let it go completly. So I passed it on to Rye, my erstwhile hostee and partner in crime, retaining a co-ownership. We're moving slowly but it will eventually host our collaborative works and projects.
Right now, aside from mirrorsoul and wynterchylde, I also have three other sites, all in various states of disarray. In other words, I've got my fingers in too many pies.
