After two and a half years Lost in Tokyo.org has a new layout, this time made by yours truly. It was a real bitch to make too. It gave me trouble every step of the way. I’ve made many layouts over the last 12 years, so I know what I’m doing to a reasonable extent, but things that I had no problem with before went wrong this time. The divs, the links, the fonts, even FontAwesome was being a jerk to me. Finally I was able to force everything together, and I even checked it on Firefox instead of just being a Chrome elitist. I’m still in the process of revamping the site. The content hasn’t been updated in a while, so I’m starting mostly from scratch. I should finish everything in a couple weeks.

I haven’t updated in a while, and I actually have a legitimate reason that isn’t laziness! At least not directly. One of the most important events of the year is coming… THE STEAM SUMMER SALE. I have been waiting for this! It’s starting June 11 and I am not ready. You’d think after three years I’d know to be prepared but… I was behind on my surveys, so I was in a mad rush to get paid in time for the sale. I made it for one site, and hopefully another payment will come through before the sale is over. I’m also just about the reach the payment threshold for a different survey site, which helped me come to a decision. My web host has been very unstable recently, and this isn’t the first time this has happened in the nearly 3 years I’ve been with them. The first time it happened they ended up getting their shit together a few months later, after which there was a brief period of stability. But later in the year the troubles started again and haven’t stopped. Since I’m getting the money from that survey site before my time with this host is up, I’ll be able to change hosts relatively smoothly. I am so happy to say I’m finally moving my sites to A Small Orange. I’ve heard literally nothing but good things about them, but in the past I had too many large sites to even consider ASO. My online presence is much smaller now, so now I can finally get quality hosting. It seems like a silly thing to get excited about, but I am positively giddy.
