An old 2011 self-portrait.

Self-portrait, 2011.

The blogger

  • I am Aneesah. Architecture graduate / freelance designer / work-at-home mother.
  • At some point in life I realised that in this world there are people who just need to write, and I am one of them.
  • I used to blog and share about things I’ve made. Now I’m trying to share more about my home-life and activities.
  • My interests include reading, Facebooking, YouTubing, reading, Islam, houseplants and making things.

The blog

  • I started to blog in 2003, at a fansite called Aneesah’s Harry Potter Site. I outgrew drawing fan art and soon deleted it.
  • Aneesah’s Hideaway was created in 2004 as a personal website. I used to code and design it myself and learned HTML and CSS along the way.
  • The online world has changed drastically over the years, but I still believe in blogging as a powerful medium of sharing and reflecting.
  • At the end of August 2010, six years after the site was created, Aneesah’s Hideaway moved to its own domain.
