This site was founded as "The Blue Shinra Project" (aka "the BSP") on February 2, 2002. Its main purpose was to serve as a permanent home for a fanfic I was writing titled Blue Shinra, and the name continued to be used long after said fic was completed. On the tenth anniversary of the site, its name was changed to the more appropriate "The Blue Shinra Archive" and its content was pared back to what I felt were the most essential and/or popular features.
In addition to the main site, there were several satellites, including character shrines, a webring, and a humorous "tourist guide" dedicated to the FFVII world—which predated the BSP itself. Out of these sites, one of them has outgrown the BSP and has become largely separate (Brain Scrap House) and only one other, the FFVII Citadel community directory Reunion Tracks, had been preserved, though it was listed under "Miscellany"; Reunion Tracks was shut down for good less than a month after the BSP's name change. A full list of these dead sites can be found on the Links page under "Miscellany".
Speaking of the Citadel, the BSP (now the BSA, of course) has been that site's official host since September 2004, and will remain as such for as long as necessary.
A blog was also a common, consistent feature of the BSP since its inception—either hosted here or via LiveJournal—but the BSA has no such thing. To keep up with my doings, please refer to my Twitter account, found on the Links page under "Miscellany".
