WHAT ABOUT UPDATES
Simply use the same form indicated above, taking care to use the option for an update.
- To be clear, this is a directory of shrines only. Shrine and fanlisting combinations are welcome!
- These need not be complete shrines, but I do ask that there is something I could link.
- I also require a 200x40 button of the site your submit. If you don't have one, I will struggle through and produce something, but regrettably buttons are not my strong suit.
- Feel free to include HTML in your response! If you want to include images beyond your button, contact me and we'll strategize.
- I ask that you don't just share your favorite shrine; I also ask that you say something about why that is, ideally at least 500 words long. (And as many more words as you like!) It's up to you what makes something a favorite, of course, but sometimes leading questions help. You needn't answer all — or any — of these, but this might get you started on ideas.
- Think, first, about the subject of the shrine. Were you acquainted with it at a particularly momentous part of your life? Because of personal transformations, or realizations? Does the character remind you of yourself? If not, what attracted you to them? Is your interest in them unusual, given your usual proclivities?
- Think about where this project fits in your personal autobiography. When did you first start making shrines? Is this your first? If not, was there something you realized about shrine making that made this project more meaningful to you than previous attempts? When you first started making shrines, did you know you wanted to make this one?
- Think about the content of the shrine. Is it especially personal? Did you work hard on producing it, perhaps taking a long time? Did the content change over time? If so, did it change because you changed, or did it change as you added more work to it?
- Think about the execution of the shrine. Was it fun to design? Did the content inspire the design, or vice versa? Has the content changed repeatedly, and if so, what were the concerns that motivated that change? Or, perhaps, the lack of change? How does your design skill and taste reflect where you are in your life at present? Is it the rule, or an exception, to your design sensibilities? Did designing it lead to any realizations, either about shrining generally, its content, its subject, or yourself?
