Empfire is my main domain and home to my personal blog. I purchased the domain on the 3rd of March 2011. Empfire is hosted by 000webhost. Empfire is a made-up word. It is a combination of the words ‘Empire’ and ‘Fire’ which are the names of two of my favorite songs by the band Kasabian. Originally I was going to purchase the domain name ‘empire-fire’ but it was my friend Becca who suggested that I should combine the two words to give me one.
I originally purchased the domain and set Empfire up as my photoblog. At the time, Imperfect Angel was my main domain. I adopted Imperfect Angel so it never felt like my own website. In 2012 after several problems with IA, I decided to move my main blog and all of the website content to Empfire. I moved my photoblog to photographs.empfire.info.
Before I owned Imperfect Angel I owned a sub-domain called Summer Dream that was closed down without notice by the host.
My web designing days started around 5 years ago when my friend introduced me to Piczo. I made a rubbish website and I left for a while. But over time I kept coming back to Piczo and I kept starting new websites. About 2 years ago I went back to Piczo and I wanted to start a decent site so I started to learn about making graphics on Paint Shop Pro and I learned about coding such as HTML and CSS. My Piczo site started to get busier and my skills started to develop. I got bored of Piczo so I eventually applied for a sub domain. It took some time getting use to using code for everything. It was strange not being able to ‘drag and drop’. After quite of bit of practice, I got the hang of it and I fell in love with designing, even though I wasn’t great at it.
