Site QuestionsWhere are all the wenches?!
How in the world did you come up your site's name?

How long has this site been around?
What do you make your page with?
Will you post my artwork/story on your site?
Uh...let me guess. You stumbled across my site while looking for porn, right? Well, my site doesn't have any "wenches" in *that* sense of the word.
According to Dictionary.com:
wench - n.
Wench is also a term used a lot in conjunction with medieval women, with gals that go to Renaissance Faires, and in conjunction with pirates, too. Some people like to use it as a slightly more polite version of "bitch". I don't think that any of those definitions are in any dictionary, per se, but they're definitely in common usage. Yes, "wench" is sometimes associated with lustiness and pornography, but there are many other meanings and shades of meanings.
No mentions of "wench" on this site are meant to be associated with the term "prostitute" or in conjunction with porn. My wenches are female pirates, serving wenches, medieval ladies, and the like. Yes, *that's* what I mean by wenches. Don't like it? Keep surfing then!
It was pretty much what I like to think of as a happy accident. When I first sat down to design my website in 1999, I didn't have a site title in mind. As a temporary page header, I typed in the first thing that came to mind - Katarina's Page O' Wenches and Stuff. I wound up liking it a lot, so my site's been stuck with that cumbersome and rather silly name ever since!
You sure can ^_^ Please only link to the main page as I may rename and reorganize things from time to time. Thanks!
This site has been around, in one form or another, since August of 1999. It was first located at Skunked.com, then moved a couple of months later to furnation.com. When Furnation was having frequent downtimes, Kylen offered to host my site on Silabub.com, where it was located for several years. I finally decided to bite the bullet and get my own domain and it's been on katarinasart.com since August of 2009.
I use an old version of Microsoft FrontPage.
This site's purpose is to showcase my own artwork. You're better off setting up your own site or joining one of the plethora of online archives.
