Why "storyteller's campsite"?

why "storyteller's campsite"?

Why do I have a homepage at all? Because upon discovering slash, I surfed a lot on the web, and wanted -- I don't know. Leave my footprints in the virtual sand, I guess. So I taught myself HTML with the help of a good friend's husband and started programming one. The first attempt was quite pathetic, I'm afraid, and is better forgotten. The second one (let's refer to it as storyteller's campsite version 1.0) was better; it brought across my love for gaming with its fantasy setting (parchment background, campfire etc.) but soon looked amateur in comparison to other websites. Ihope version 2.0 is better; I tried to keep an even balance between appealing design and functionality even for people with a slow internet connection. I've already used more javascript than I'm truly comfortable with.

For anyone nostalgically interested, this is what v 1.0 of storyteller's campsite looked like:

Why the title? Because it reminds me of a collection of stories by Elsa Sophia von Kamphoevener, called "At the nightfires of the caravan seraglio". Despite being European, an adventuresome girl travelled through Anatolia in the middle of the last century, disguised as a young man, and collected the stories of the culture of the old Turkish nomads that had so far only been passed on orally, and never to foreigners, let alone women. She became the apprentice of various storytellers and wrote down their cultural treasures for posterity. Our arts teacher used to read her stories to us during class, and I fell in love with the prose and the endless space for thoughts they provided. [3]
