I’m slave to 5 guinea pigs that are all rescues. I’m pro-rescue, being a volunteer for the local county shelter for 7 years, and occasionally volunteering and fostering for local rescues around Southern California.
Giantpaper is my playground on the Internet.
It’s where I can express myself through its design and code. I’ve used it to take on challenges for myself (how fast can I make a site load? can I make a site look like [blahblahblah], etc). (In case it wasn’t obvious, this WordPress theme is 100% custom-built by me.)
I’m on Facebook* and Twitter, but nostalgia is making me yearn for the “good ol’ days”. And even though I use Facebook, I have serious trust issues with them and don’t want to rely on them or other social media completely, which is another reason for Giantpaper’s continued existence.
*Friends list is limited to people I actually know. I might not have met them in person, but if we communicated at some point regularly, I will accept a friend request from you.
Around the Internet, I go by giantpaper, thegiantpaper or rarely, hippohumongous. (But not all giantpapers, thegiantpapers or hippohumongouses are me. Sometimes I have to fallback on an alternative (ex. thegiantpaper), when giantpaper is taken on that particular service.
It’s hosted by the uber amazing Hawkhost (NOTE: that IS an affiliate link so yes, I get 💵 if you click and sign-up through it). It’s registered with Namecheap. Both are great, and I have been with them for more than a decade now.
Yes, it’s Gutenberg. I’m determined to master it, which is why I have it on my site. 💪😤 I will not be beat by it!
I’m here for giantpaper.com!
Giantpaper.org and giantpaper.com are two completely different sites owned by completely different entities. (One of the reasons I got .org was because the .com version of giantpaper was taken). I think it was owned by a company, who disappeared sometime about a year after I registered my domain, but the people still hung onto their domain. I don’t know owns it now (WHOIS info is blocked), but it ain’t me! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It seems to not go anywhere–it’s just registered to someone.
Btw, I felt like I had to mention this because I noticed I’m getting Google searches for giant paper.com, and the front page of giantpaper.org is the #1 result. So, it looks like there are people still looking for giantpaper.com I guess?
