  • Version 2 marks the first time withinmyworld.org wore black!
  • My love of astronomy and stargazing, combined with the mid-2000s trend of black backgrounds in webdesign, inspired this layout.
  • Creation of this design was admittedly rushed, because I was taking a lot of time-intensive college classes.
  • This layout served as partial inspiration for Version 11, since I love the combo of blue and black.
