After so long of having an incredibly horrible and embarrassing layout I am happy to say that I have finally revamped my Shiki shrine. I've given it a brand new layout and a new name. I absolutely love how it turned out! The content is still the old content but I'm hoping to rewrite that sometime soon within the new year.

Belated Merry Christmas all! I hope you all had an awesome day! I have one new site to plug for you all. I technically finished this Christmas eve but I didn't feel like making an update for it so I'm doing it now. If you haven't swung by Dream Team since Wednesday evening then you may have missed my new site Brave Bird, my shrine to Pidgeot, one of my absolute favorite Pokemon. I'm really happy with how it all turned out and I hope you enjoy! :D

Despite being fairly quiet around here lately I have not been entirely inactive (although Warlords of Draenor has basically consumed my life right now). Aside from working on a new site, and then taking a break from it to work on another new site, I have redone a lot of the Network page (which I did like a month ago but hadn't gotten around to uploading until now). The format is pretty much the same as before except for I added more sites to the flagship shrines and rewrote a lot of the blurbs. I guess that's not much different, but it felt like a lot of work.
Another too thing is I completely removed the Upcoming Projects section. I have this bad habit with being indecisive and find I can never make up my mind on stuff I want to do. Also I want to make so many things and I find looking at a long list of projects kinda discourages me from wanting to work on anything at all, and then nothing gets done. So this way I figure I will work on what I want, whenever I want and not get burnt out. Currently I have three shrine projects on the go –– Yrel, Zelda, and Pidgeot –– so let's see how well this works out.

Scratch yet another one off the to-do list. From the Sky, my Song of Storms shrine got a revamp, along with some revised content and new stuff added. I also added a couple new songs to the playlist. I am pleased. :D

Lately I seem to be more interested in working off my 2015 project plan list rather than working on what I should be working on (as in my Zelda shrine). With that said I have revamped Grace, my shrine to Karis from the video game Golden Sun: Dark Dawn which uses the layout from the fanlisting because I like it. Also, I have closed the fanlisting as I am not longer interested in maintaining it. I am quite happy with just having the shrine.

Although I technically revamped the site two months ago, Starsurge got another revamp. This layout I had originally planned to use for another site, but I eventually dropped the project and instead of letting it go to waste I decided to use it on the collective as a sort of birthday present as the site turned three last Monday. I like how it turned out considering it uses two elements I normally struggle with; real life people and black and white. So yay me!

Been a while since I had fanlistings on upcoming but I finished two that I was recently approved for. They are Worlds Collide, a fanlisting for the video game The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and A Daughter's Love, a fanlisting for the relationship between Chrom & Lucina from the video game Fire Emblem: Awakening. I'm quite happy with the way they turned out. If you're a fan of either subject (or both!) then join!
October 3, 2014
A couple things today. Firstly, Save the World, my Lucina shrine, has received a new look. Secondly, I have opened Recollection(of a petal), a layout archive for all my old layout screenshots. I'm quite happy with how both turned out so do be sure the check them out if you haven't already!

I made another new clique today. Check it out at Digital Love! It's a clique for video game music because video game music is awesome. :D
August 25, 2014
I just realized I hadn't posted any updates for almost a month so I figured I'd better post a quick update just so you know what's been happening. Well, from what I can remember I've opened Wyvern Friend, my shrine for Cherche from Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Ignis, my fanlisting for the female Robin/Avatar also from Fire Emblem: Awakening. I've also revamped Starsurge, my fanlisting collective, and did a bunch of fixing up over at my Pokémon shrines. Other than those I think that's everything. Must remember to post updates more often. *lazy*

Smallish update today. Just wanted to make note of a new site I made. Namely What's Your Type? a new Pokémon clique made by me. Check it out!
July 9, 2014
If you've visited ZerudaORG recently you may have noticed that it has received a complete revamp. I still loved the previous layout but it just felt kinda...well, I can't remember the word I used anymore, but "limited" works. With the new look it feels more open and free, plus I like the color of it. In addition I completely redid the network page because I didn't like how I had it before. It would have been fine with a smaller number of sites but over the years the number of shrines I own has steadily increased so it looked more like a mess than anything. I like it much better now. I also made a new Joined page so I can join more cliques and things without my index looking messy and I added a page for my favorite shrines to visit. You can find it on the exits page. That is all for now. I plan to do more things later.

Small update today. I've been fighting some weird bug for the last month so productivity has been really slow around here. I seem to be getting better though so hopefully things will start picking up again. But yeah, just wanted to make note of my newest fanlisting for Olivia from the video game Fire Emblem: Awakening. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and I really like it.
June 8, 2014
So these were a month ago but I kinda got lazy and then never got around to plugging them. So I'm doing that now! About a month ago I was approved for and finished the fanlistings for Cordelia and Cherche of Fire Emblem: Awakening fanlistings and also finished the Draenei race from the Warcraft series fanlisting. I'm quite pleased with the way all of them turned out. Now, more recently I got the most shocking fanlisting approval EVER. That being the fanlisting for the video game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I still can't believe it. Anyway, to celebrate I've revamped the shrine and have finished the fanlisting as well so that's all ready for new fans. The shrine still looks kinda funny but I will be fixing that up within the next little bit. :)

So one of these is a little bit late, but oh well. Come to think of it, both of these were on my April to-do list. Oh well, better late than never, right? To start things off, my Pokemon collective now has a real layout and the name of it is officially Dream Team so go check it out! Also, I have turned my Milotic fanlisting into a shrine as well and renamed it to Prism. I am pleased with the way both of them turned out so I hope you enjoy.

I was planning to wait until I finished before posting an update about this, but seeing as I seem to have run into a block I'm just gonna post what I have done now. If you've been following me on Twitter you may have seen me post tweets about revamps I've been doing. Well for those that don't I've been on this crazy fanlisting revamp kick lately. So far I've finished revamps for Ephraim, Soren, Tohru, Zelda, and Link & Midna. I have plans to revamp Abu, Data, and Shiki as well, but I'm having trouble with Shiki so I'm kind of at a standstill at the moment until I'm able to come up with something. Hopefully soon!
April 22, 2014
Well I've definitely gotten derailed in terms of working off of my to-do list. I did finish a couple things on it so that's not so bad, right? I have no idea. Anyway just wanted to make note of the revamp I had done over at Starsurge. I attempted to simplify it but I only cut out one page so I don't think it worked. At least it's more direct to the point so I think it works well enough for me.
April 11, 2014
Although this technically isn't on the to-do list for April I found a burst of motivation to do something with it after having finished the "Symbolism" page for Lucina. As a result Second to None, my shrine for Cordelia from Fire Emblem: Awakening is officially online! Go check it out! :P
April 1, 2014
So this is more of a reminder to myself than an actual update, but seeing as I have several things I'd like to get done for the month of April I figured making a list would help keep me on track of things, and maybe even motivate myself to do them. Let's see if this actually works...
Things I'd like to get done include the following:
Finish the "Symbolism" page for my Lucina shrine.Finished!
- Work on my Milotic shrine for the Creature Feature Challenge.
- Make a real layout for my Pokemon collective. Maybe even give it a better name too.
- Do some more work on my Jarod shrine (finish at least 3-4 pages).
Finish the Fire Emblem: Awakening section under "Other Appearances" for my Lyndis shrine.Finished!
- Fix up/revamp my blog and start using it again.
- Make a bunch of new buttons for my shrine directory (donations are always welcome btw!).
And I think I'll leave it at that for now. I have some other things I'd like to do too, but I don't want to super overwhelm myself or else nothing is going to get done.
March 16, 2014
Okay, so some of these updates I was supposed to do forever ago, but I had never gotten around to doing them. *lazy* I'm aiming to fix that now so let's see if I can remember them all.
Firstly Shuriken now also doubles as a fanlisting for the super cool ninja frog Pokemon, Greninja. I've also opened two other fanlistings as well. Those being Question Everything, a fanlisting for the Pretender series, and Altruism, a fanlisting for Jarod from The Pretender, which I am also working toward making a shrine as well, because Jarod is awesome.
Lastly, ZerudaORG has a brand new layout! I was actually intending to use this layout for a link portal that I had planned but I somehow found myself wanting to use it for the domain instead. I regret nothing! It was a serious pain in the ass to put together so I hope it looks alright. The updates log now has it's own place and a layout to match the rest of the domain, but still keeping a look of its own. This was actually the original layout I had made so I'm happy I could still find a way to use it somehow. Now to go through all my sites and update them to this address.

January 12, 2014
A little late but I have finished moving all my Pokemon sites over to the new subdomain. I've also updated Sawsbuck and Absol to include Pokemon X/Y and also added the evolution page to Absol which talks about its mega evolved form. That's about all for now.
January 10, 2014
First update of the year! I hope you all had a great New Year! I just wanted to make note of my new shrine, Future Sight which I made as an extension of my existing Gardevoir fanlisting, now at a new location which will become my Pokemon collective. Because of the large number of Pokemon shrines I'm planning to do –– along with some incentive from my friends –– I decided to go with making the collective. Right now there isn't much; just a placeholder with only one link that works until I come up with a layout, but I will be moving the rest of my Pokemon sites there within the next day or two so keep an eye out for that.
