June 8, 2000: I'm sorry I've been away so long. Between school and work, I haven't had much time to devote to this site. I'm finally out of school, though, so I'll try to spend a little more time here. I've got ideas for new essays and graphics...
October 22, 1999: It's a little later than I promised, but I've finally got the updates done! Changes are as follows:
I've also added lots of new pages and images to the Doodles section, including a page of Graphics Sets. The Text Index of images has been completely revised-- clicking on a image description will now send the image to a new page where you can test it against different colored backgrounds. A Feedback Form and a Site Map have been added as well. And in the Scrawls section, a Reader's Gripes page has been added to allow visitors to submit their own Web Site Gripes.
I've also tried to fix minor problems and mistakes throughout the site. If you find any that I missed, please let me know!
April 4, 1999: A series of frog
images has been added to the Reptile
April 2, 1999: Another new image,
Hatching Alligator, is in the Murals section, and a clipart version of it
is available on the Reptile Clipart
Also, check out Carol's Fox, an image
created by a very talented young lady who was inspired by my Fox image.
Other news: March was this site's most successful month ever with
over 20,000 visitors and 56,000 page-views. As always, a huge
thank- you to those who help keep the traffic coming by using the
images here and linking back to us! :)
March 19, 1999: Another new
image, Ostrich, is in the Murals section.
March 18, 1999: There's a new
image, Chameleon, in the Murals section.
The Doodles section has been
restructured a little. The Miscellaneous Animals category was
getting too big, so it has been split into three categories: Reptiles, Birds, and Misc.
Animals. The Reptile and Bird pages each contain several new
images. These images will be added to the Text Index soon.
March 15, 1999: Lots of news this
week! First of all, there's new artwork on a number of pages:
three new Murals, Dream Horse, Gold Hawk, and Blue &
Gold Macaw, a new page of Horse
Clipart, plus a few new images have been added to the Butterfly Clipart and Misc. Animal Clipart pages.
Second, The Stablegirl's Lair celebrated its first birthday this
Third, my Web Site Gripes was selected
as The Mining Company's HTML Tip of the Day for March 15, 1999.
March 8, 1999: A new essay, Cathartic Rant: Recent Conversations With An
Angel From Hell was added to the Scrawls section.
January 28, 1999: Due to problems
with people linking directly to images and/or using images without
giving me credit, links from the index page to the Doodles and
Murals sections now link to explicit copyright notices.
January 20, 1999: Playful Colt has been added to the Murals section. Clipart of this image is
available on Horses Two in the Doodles section.
January 15, 1999: HOORAY FOR '99!
After a big holiday slump, I'm happy to announce that January
looks to be the best month ever for The Stablegirl's Lair. In just
the first two weeks we've had about 6000 visitors, 14000 total
page-views, and 96000 total hits (including images)- and the
numbers are climbing every day. Thank you to all who have visited-
your patronage helps assure that the Lair will be here in the
future for others to enjoy. Special thanks to those who send
me feedback so that I can make the site even better, and HUGE
THANKS to all of the angels and saints out there who've linked
their pages to mine. I couldn't do it without you. :)
January 13, 1999: I added
a new page of cat graphics (Cats Three)
to the Doodles section. I also added Lion Sitting Up to the Murals section.
A section of Reciprocal Links has
been added to the Portals section.
Also, all pages now have a link to this page (News).
December 30, 1998: All
essays in the Scrawls section are now
available as MS Word documents (.doc) for offline reading and
printing. To download these files, follow the link at the bottom
of each essay.
December 1, 1998: An
essay, "All I Want For Christmas"
was added to the Scrawls section.
November 11-12, 1998: I
noticed that the side menus on many pages were doing some odd
things when viewed at resolutions other than 800x600. Also,
because I hadn't taken the width of the scroll bars into account
when setting the widths of my tables, so slight horizontal
scrolling was necessary when viewing the site at 640x480. I
think I've eliminated all of those problems, now...
October 29, 1998: Added
another page of Animal Bars to the Doodles section. (Includes two butterfly
bars, two rabbit bars, and a cartoon horse bar.)
October 28, 1998: Added Moths and Flame to the Murals section. Also added a Cartoon Horse Clipart page to the Doodles section.
October 27, 1998: Added Butterflies to the Murals section. Also added a Butterfly Clipart page to the Doodles section.
October 6, 1998: Added Stargazing Rabbits to the Murals section. Also added a small rabbit
image to Animals Page Two of the Doodles section.
October 1, 1998: It's
official: No more moving around!!! The Stablegirl's Lair
now has its own domain! My wonderful, wonderful boyfriend Tyson
(did I mention that he's wonderful?) gave it to me as an early
Christmas present. :)
I've also added a Frequently Asked
September 16, 1998: Yes,
it's yet ANOTHER new look for the Lair! I wasn't completely happy
with the other one, so I did some tweaking. I think that the
newest look is cleaner and more solid. I hope you agree...
September 4, 1998: As you
can see, a lot has changed here recently, and even more
renovations will be taking place soon.
The big news, of course, is that The Stablegirl's Lair has a new
home! It outgrew the old site on Prodigy, but Pam Honsinger,
owner of Keepin' The Faith:
Cancer Support For The Heart And Soul came to the
rescue by adopting the site. (Thank you, Pam!) Now that
I've got room to expand The Lair, you should be seeing plenty
of new stuff here over the new few months. (If you have
ideas about what I should add, let me know!)
In the mean time, here's a run-down of the changes so far:
- New logo and layout for the entire site, along with an
improved (I hope!) navigation scheme and a more consistent
- The Doodles section is now sorted
by category, and a text index of all images has been added.
- Two new essays in the Scrawls
section: Confessions of an HTML Snob
and Ramblings and Reflections on
Web Site Ownership.
- The Professional section of Mirrors
has been moved to a separate site. Professional information
about me can now be found here.
- The Murals section now includes
scanned artwork as well as computer-generated work.
- The Gems section is now four pages
long and currently houses 28 awards.
More additions coming soon!
