My Website is a Personal Museum

October 13, 2023    Bookmark

These thoughts about structuring one’s content led me to think: exactly what is the structure that houses my content? Sure, my content is housed inside my personal website, but what does my website represent? I am a person who often thinks in metaphors, so to concretely represent something in a nonliteral way helps out a lot.


The powerful thing about having a website is that it could literally be anything. It can be structured however you’d like, and you can share about whatever you want. Your site could be a library of information about wildflowers; it could be a shrine for your favourite anime; it could be an alternate reality game. Heck, it could be all of these things combined: an alternate reality game in which you collect and document wildflowers in real life, whilst featuring characters from your favourite anime. The world is your oyster.
