ShiBytes.com was purchased on Tuesday, 19 April 2016, nine days after I brought my first child, a beautiful baby girl, into the world. I owned this particular TLD before, having initially coined the domain name back in 2009. It eventually expired and would remain in online limbo until 2015, when I purchased it again in January. I did not renew it in early 2016, but it was free to register again a few months later.
I was originally going to use Very Shirley for the purpose of showcasing my personal aesthetic but I have since converted this domain to my web collective. Hence, Shi Bytes was officially launched as my personal style blog on 7 June 2021.
As for the blog’s name, it is actually a bit of wordplay, a little something that has been percolating in my mind for a number of years now. “Shi” is one of my nicknames while “bytes” is a unit of measure for computer data as well as a homonym for “bites”. Thus, through this blog, I am offering the InterWebs en masse bite-sized aspects of my aesthetic.
