Well as you can see over the last week or so I have been very busy not just adding new features, but also putting our name about the place. I have to say though it's disheartening that things are so quiet. I am not complaining, please don't think I am having a go at you lovely members, not at all. I just wish I could do something to make the place buzz a bit. This place seems to either be full drama, and bodies falling like dominoes, or periods where one only hears a distant church bell tolling, as the tumble weed bounces across the bottom of the screen (Damn, that gives me an idea for a feature).
I know the thing we really need to sort is the web site. I am in a quandary about that. It is something that I know needs to be done, and it needs to be done right, but I just don't know how to get it the way I want it. It is one of those things where I know how I want it to look, but I just can't seem to figure out the right path to get it there. I keep having a little go, and then I hit a stumbling block. I am thinking that perhaps the best idea is to just have a small place holder, so we can build the rest around it, but then I think that it really needs to be right before we launch this place, and spend real money on advertising. I just keep wishing that someone would come along and take that part off my hands. It's another catch 22. I know that when we have a lot more members, and we are more active, there will be the user base to get people excited, and want to put the time and effort in to managing things, but to get us to that point the time and effort needs to be put in. I am just faced with so so many things that need doing, and only one of me to do it. I had someone who was going to help, but I had one of my mental blow outs, and forgot that we had arranged a date and time to do it, and I fucking stood her up (I am really so so sorry if you are reading this). It seems that I am my own worst enemy.
I really think we have a winning formula now. Everything is in place, I mean we have a beautiful site, that all works really well. We have a great way to manage things, and we have enough experience not to make the mistakes of the past. I even think that AVEN might just be starting to like us (as much as they ever will). We just need me to do the front end, and a spark. Say what you want about Pramana (I will say many things most of them four letter words", but he knew how to write a post that would get people talking. Maybe that's what I need? I need to start thinking of really dirty sex stuff, and then ask the community about it. "How do gay people stop their willies smelling of shit"?
I am going to have a bit of a sleep, and then when I wake up, I am going to do my BEST to get at least some site together over the weekend.
^ That's how I feel right now...
I need to kick my self up the arse and do something cool <grin>.
