was purchased in late August 2002 to serve as my personal domain. In January 2003, I
made psyche.nu my main collective.
The primary reason I bought psyche.nu was because I love Greek and Roman mythology. I've been fascinated
with classical myths since I was a child, and one of my favorite stories is that of Cupid and Psyche. My
favorite mythological goddess is Pallas Athena,
and I was upset at not being able to get athena.nu when I had the chance, so when I saw that psyche.nu was
available, I decided to get it. I don't regret it one bit. I was actually able to register athena.nu in
2009 (♥), but I think psyche.nu will always be my domain for as long as I have websites. ♥
Psyche, in Greek mythology, is the personification
of the soul. "Psyche" is also the word for "butterfly," which is why Psyche the goddess is often visually
depicted with butterfly wings. The word "psyche" also can be used to refer to the mind. If this
network had a second name (it doesn't), it'd probably be the "Butterfly Soul Network."
I've been creating websites since 1996, and my
is over ten years old. I don't have much inspiration or talent for web design, but I do
what I can. I love domain names
, and I have
probably owned about 50 in my lifetime.
I enjoy anime and manga
but haven't gotten into
anything lately. Although I don't watch much TV, my favorite series are Stargate SG-1
(Seasons 1 through 3), The X-Files
(until Ziva left), and Futurama
. I also love collecting
and MMO games (specifically Final Fantasy
, League of Legends
, and Guild Wars 2
), listening to music, making random animated gifs
on Tumblr, and
I volunteer at The Fanlistings Network
I'm the Games: Applications/Troubles and Mythology/Religion: F/U/C staffer, and at
The Anime Fanlistings Network
, where I'm a
Senior Staffer and a category staffer for Movies/OVAs, General, and the two Characters categories. Nowadays,
I mostly stick to Tumblr
and my private Twitter account.
Version five of psyche.nu features several images of elementalists, one of the playable professions from
ArenaNet's MMORPG Guild Wars 2
. The artwork is by artist Kekai Kotaki. I main an elementalist in
because it's my favorite class, so of course I chose to elementalists in the current layout.
The font used is Zenith Script ES.
