Hello,

I am Elena. I have written this site entirly by myself.

I have been wanting to learn how to make websites for a long time. Only recently did I start to learn HTML and CSS through online resources and books (see below). I am having a ball! Finding the fediverse had no small part in that. Infact, it was the beginning of it all. Joining the fediverse was like stepping back into the world I always wanted to be a part of all those years ago. On Firefish1 I've phrased it like so: Being here feels very retro and very current at the same time. So, here I am, in my early 40s, learning how to write a website, and how to fill it with words. Who knows what else I will come up with.

This site is a constant work in progress. I am still at the beginning of my learning and will probably add to the design and change it all together in the future.

Find me in the fediverse

I have moved away from walled garden social media, but can be found on various fediverse platforms. The following are the two I use regularly. You can find other profiles of mine there.

There I post about many things, but mostly about Star Trek. If you want to contact me, just drop me a line on one of the platforms listed.

You can also write me an e-mail: hello [-at-] theresmiling [dot] eu
