About the Site
Many thanks for dropping by the site! I appreciate it and hope to provide things to read or do and art for you to look at and display in your home for many years.
All of my webpages on the site I have hand-coded and designed myself. I worked strictly through Notepad for the first three years, and then I found out about Notepad++. Now I have some lovely colors to help me see what I'm doing. If you see any errors on my site, I'm the webmaster you contact about them.
Site best viewed at 640x480 or higher. "Responsive" commands are built in for people with tiny screens who won't use a real computer. It should go without saying, but please don't browse my site while you're driving down the road. Seriously, some of you people need to turn off your devices a little more often!
I began long ago with GeoCities in April 2005 until about April 2007. GeoCities PageBuilder on dial-up! Needless to say, it was a wee prompt to learn how to code things myself.
From May 2010 to March 2017 I took up with 000webhost.com and made TRC.site90.net. After they "modernized" their control panel, it became too dysfuctional for me to use, so I deleted my site.
Raven-wing.net has been online since January 2012 and is hosted by Hosting24.com and NameSilo.com. They're both quite affordable and I recommend them both! Hosting24 will currently give a discount of $2/month if you use the code
In the past I have tried DreamHost and GoDaddy, and, well, they're not for me.

About the Webmistress
Howdy! I'm Ashe Skyler. Tomboy and country girl from rural Alabama! I'm married and have two kids, three dogs, I love fine pencil art, I'm an artist and take commissions, I work on a webcomic, and I'm an income tax preparer at my day job. And I have many, many interests, some of which can be found around my website.
They say you orta have a five year business plan. I guess I finally made one. Come November 2017, I will be enrolling for the CTP certification. I'll graduate from that no later than August 2018, and then I'll work on studying for the SEE test to get my EA certification. After all that's taken care of, it'll be time to join the NACPB and become a CPB. So by the time I'm 30, I'll have one hell of a resumé, and only have to sink $3000 into it and won't have to take any useless classes like speech or composition either. Not gonna study for them both at the same time because that's an awful lot of weird laws and I don't want to overwhelm myself.
- Political Affiliation
- Constitutionist, "Young Outsider", and Centrist. Neither Democrat, nor Republican. Neither Liberal, nor Conservative. Neither left wing, nor right wing. Basically, I can anger all of them equally since I like and dislike things about all of them.

And, um, despite all the claims that I should be riddled with fear, anxiety, depression, and an inclination to be superficial and materialistic according to those various labels, I'm not. I've Gemini rising, after all! I just want to have a good laugh and collect trivia. Even when politics and religion are involved.
