Dear friends and fans an era has come to an end. I’ve decided to close annelirydahl.com
I guess it was only a matter of time. I had to gather some courage. It’s like a room left untouched for a long time. The more time that passes, the more of a burden it becomes. I will still be the proud owner of the domain and it will redirect you to enchantedduo.com where everything happens nowadays.
I think I registered annelirydahl.com in 2003 when I was just a newbe at both computers and especially web page making. We were recording Waterlilies and the coloring of the album is reflected on the first web page designs as well. The first creations were put together in Dreamweaver or FrontPage and looking at the code now I’m just horrified! But I suppose that is a good thing… It ought to mean some improvement.
When we started out with the first web pages it was a lot of exploring and just pure fun. I remember sitting up all night just designing. Even if I would find time for that now it’s not as much fun. Web development has changed radically over the last few years and to build a decent page nowadays demands, well, more skill than I have.
When I was very young I remember my father using the saying that knowledge is like the moon. When you first touch a new subject it’s like a new moon. You only know a little and the back side appears just as small. The more you learn the more the back side grows as well… So no matter how much you know there always seems to be just as much that you don’t.
That is when you realize that tools like WordPress kind of simplifies matters and takes care of all that trying development leaving you with an easy tool to help publish your content.
That being said I warmly welcome the annelirydahl.com visitors to enchantedduo.com hoping you will find it worthwhile. And for sentimental reasons I’ve added some screenshots from the various costumes of annelirydahl.com over the years.
