So, I’ve been musing on what to do with this site along with the others that I still have. The challenge has, and continues to be what I want to do with my sites, my career (gasp), and how to maintain these places.
From a social and networking standpoint, it is hard to deny the overwhelming trend towards Facebook and Twitter for keeping your work out there. I’m far from immune from it, although I have some real problems with some of the business practices of Facebook. That being said, since more and more of my daily blips are through my Facebook page, I’ve added the FB stream directly to my website. (Look over there. To the right. See it? There.) I expect that my common blatherings about cameras and such will start to appear there, while this page will continue to remain for my personal blog about cameras, poker, conventioneering (is that like being a convention pirate only less… pirate-y?) and such.
In other tidbits of note — I’m deeply saddened by the loss of Satoshi Kon – the topic of which has been written about by many people on the internet. I had the pleasure of meeting him and having dinner with him and the rest of the Madhouse crew back at TAF 2007. His final words are pretty heartbreaking, but worth a read.
That’s it for now. I’m chugging right along. Hope you are too. Keep your chins up and your eyes open, we’ll get through this yet!
Alright, I admit it took me long enough.. I’ve been sorta busy. ^_^;; New logo, as well as watermark variants for photos.
So, lets see…
Flybynightdesign.com – total nuking and revamp/redesign. I need to transfer all of my old con coverage to whatchulookingat.com…
msginside.com – refresh and some redesign, add new materials. I haven’t been doing anythign with the t-shirts lately, I’m starting to think I should just nuke the site and sell off my materials on the cheap. It was a fun idea but I barely have time to manage this one and no space to store materials.
whatchulookingat.com – total nuke to update WordPress and Gallery to the latest versions. Move everything to base www.whatchulookingat.com instead of “see.” and “say.” Switch single photo blog process over to a different plugin, and maybe even lose the gallery2wordpress integration module, since it works but not that well.
Livejournal – will probably continue to be a mirror of whatchulookingat.com.
Facebook – will probably stay the same. I need to consider how to link photos in Facebook with Flickr.
Flickr – will likely be independant postings, a selection of stuff from whatchulookingat, to promote and explore a bit in that audience.
Damn. got alot to do.. -_-;;
Its been about 6 weeks since I launched say.whatchulookingat.com — with the change I’ve been trying to change my posts up a bit.
So, 6 weeks in — good or bad? Thumbs up or down? Would you buy again? Let me know what you like and don’t like!
