raccoon and zebra is my personal website. it was initially created so that i could practice my html skills and maybe get a job working on the web (mission accomplished!). i also wanted to archive any writing or musical projects so that i could have them all in one place, including childhood works.
basically the purpose of the site hasn't changed, except that it became more blog-like. initially i thought blogs were ridiculous: why would the world want to read every idiots bemused rants? but blogs don't even need to be popular or read by many people. for example, almost all of the blogs i ever read are by people i know or have at least met. i love checking in on a friend's blog when i have a few spare moments, and i think there's potential for it to help keep people connected in this increasingly busy era.
