Hiatus or a goodbye for kao-ani?

GoodBye for Now

As you might have noticed not much has been happening on kao-ani.com for quite some time. I’ve been focussing on my webdesign business Artylicious.com, by learning new skills and building a new website. Work has been slow lately (let’s hope it’s just the summer slow down), so I’m going to work on new website templates. This means my priorities has shifted a little, because well, I need work to pay the rent 😉

Meanwhile I’m also in the process of selling some of my toy collections, to help raise funds for a trip to Japan next year. I’ve never been to Japan and it’s way on top of my bucket list.

To be honest I’m not sure if I’ll pick up blogging again, for now I’ll take a long pause. Whatever happens kao-ani will remain available as an archive, for at least a year. I’ve always appreciated your comments and involvement <3, thank you for visiting my website!

You can still read my new posts on Super Cute Kawaii or follow me on Instagram.

  1. omg!!!! very sorry to hear you’re stepping off your blog, i’ll miss reading your posts and insight into design. i’ve been following you for a long time, since 2005-2006!

    your database website of kawaii “links” used to keep me very entertained in an era before widespread facebook and youtube lmaao. (pretty sure that was your site? i also feel like you were the “tama love” tamagotchi blog too, but it’s been such a long time i don’t remember. loved that one also, if so!!!)

    i also remember being in a class trying to sew the little buru buru puppy and how horrible it came out LOL.

    thank you for everything! good luck with life!!!! (‘・ω・’)✿

    1. Thank you for taking the time to reply (and for reviving your old WP account) it’s much appreciated! It’s great to find out that you are such a long-time reader of kao-ani! And that you still remember the cute links directory and even the Pixelmood/Tamalove website (◕‿◕✿).

      Haha, I’m trying to picture how your Buru Buru doggy came out, but practise makes perfect, right? I still manage to glue things upside down or make other mistakes, if I don’t stay fully concentrated.

      Maybe I’ll pick up blogging again some day. Thank you very much for the best wishes and I’m sending positive vibes back your way Wakashu ^_^

  3. Your website was paramount to my interests growing up. In fifth grade (2005) I made a friend who shared the same desk as me in a different period, we wrote notes to each other and eventually traded emails where she told me about your website and showed me her own that she made inspired. I was obsessed with the idea of making a website of my own and casually made random snippets or mock ups in ms paint and the idea of adoptables. Recently I made a website for my own projects and still to this day look at your website for inspiration and nostalgia. Today in class my friend and I were talking about kawaii brands and I showed her some of your old emoticons! Thank you so much for creating your website and keeping parts of it intact even still, I will continue following your web endeavors.

    1. Thank you very much for sharing your story Erica! It really touches me to hear that you and your friend both enjoyed the kao-ani website so much and got inspiration from it ^_^ I hope that you will continue to create website(and maybe the occasional pixel-art)! Creating something -and especially when a cute touch is involved- is something that I still enjoy doing to this day.
