Hi, I am Louise. (And I often use the handle ‘Elfwink’ on the internet.) I’m a female human (Elfwink is a half elf though) who spends a lot of time on the internet. My pronouns are she/her.
I practice martial arts and am interested in various Japanese/geeky things. I have been making websites since 1996 and am now happily doing so as part of my profession.
This is a nicheless, personal website. Most people have personal websites which are 100% devoted to one hobby or interest. This website is not that.
On this website I share my opinions and write about various aspects of my life. This ranges from martial arts to stuff applicable to people with female body parts.
I have absolutely zero business goals for this website, and I want to keep it that way.
I want this blog to be an open letter to multiple penpals around the world. If like-minded people want to stick around and follow, that’s great! If not, I wish you well on your internet voyages.
Having said all of that, you can feel free to explore the whole website, or trek down a specific path. Here’s a few topics to get you going:
Or you can have a look at my pixel art.
- The Elfwink header artwork was commissioned by the lovely, talented Jowan. Go check out her art!
- The fern leaf background is a photo taken by Elijah O’Donnell and can be found on Pexels.
- The WordPress theme for this site was coded by me and builds upon the Foundation CSS framework and JointsWP starter theme.
- The fonts I used are Abril Fatface by TypeTogether (headings), Work Sans by Wei Huang (body text), and Copper Etched by Good Craft Supply Co. (logo) which was purchased from Creative Market.
- While I make all my own pixel art for this website, there is one exception! The folder icon seen on the gallery page is not mine. It was licenced from Tartila on Creative Market.
