why make your own website? also, resources for making your own website & making the internet a little more tolerable.

i was born slightly too late for the geocities era of the internet, but just in time for the boom of social media to hit when i was in high school, and to subsequently grow exhausted of the expectation that artists online must constantly self-promote and market their work to survive. it's hard to get any kind of foothold as an artist these days without knowing optimal posting times, filming little videos of your hyper-aesthetic workspace, being an influencer as well as an artist. maybe that works for some people, but it exhausts me.
