This site serves as a personal journal as well as a dumping ground for my drawings, pixels, and other random creations. I do this for fun, as a hobby. Posts usually revolve around my pets, nature, Internet culture, everything fantasy and sci-fi, and pretty places I visit. I write about whatever I feel like writing about, without theme or agenda.

History

I got my first computer with Internet access when I was about 15 years old (1998), and it completely amazed me. In fact, it changed my entire life. Growing up in a rural village in north Sweden means you’re pretty isolated from the outside world, but suddenly… I wasn’t. Through this magical machine, the entire world was brought straight into my own room!

The first thing I did with my computer was to learn how to build websites. The Internet was the world and I wanted to be a part of it, and that meant I had to have my own website.

My very first site was a cyber pet adoption site hosted on Geocities. Being an animal lover slash artist it was no wonder I stumbled upon the community of pixel art and cyber pets.

Sometime in 2001-2002 I moved away from the cyber pets and created a more personal website about me and my life. The word “blog” wasn’t invented yet, so it was called having an online journal. Comments and other personal interactions were handled through e-mail and guest books.

In early 2005 I bought my first own domain, CyanSunrise.com.

In 2009 I switched to RockWitch.net. My site was divided into one Swedish blog and one art/pixel site in English for the first two years, but eventually, I got sick of the split-personality website and merged everything into one. In the process, I also made the decision to only use English and ditch Swedish altogether.

In January 2015 I changed my domain name to ImaginaryKarin.com, and here we are now.
