I wrote what will be my first post for my NEW + IMPROVED “rational media” site — WooHoo!! 😀
I considered publishing it right away, but I actually want to use it as a reminder that I want / need to first complete the static publishing app I’ve been mulling over.
I have the basic ideas pretty much all set, now I have to roll up my sleaves and actually JUST DO IT! 😯
There are many reasons why I have not been able to do it over the past several months, but it looks like there will soon be LOTS of OPPORTUNITY showing up on the horizon.
So please: STAY TUNED 😉
News about Life Online, Fun Stuff + Doing the Write Thing
OMG! I haven’t written ANYTHING here in almost a year!!! 😯
The feed I was writing about last August worked OK (off and on, while I was kind of jiggling the wires), but I have recently been moving towards a BRAND NEW publishing system (I am currently putting finishing touches on a prototype that I hope to be able to share in a couple days).
It will still be very much WP-based, because WP has so many bells and whistles I really like. But I am also working on extending the search capabilities + also making many websites much more responsive and capable of working with very limited resources (when you have hundreds / thousands of sites, this can become a very important issue 😉 ).
Rather than rambling on endlessly + pie-in-the-sky philosophically now, I want to much more draw attention to Sonia, who I just discovered a couple days ago (check out her WP blog @doingthewritething / http://doingthewritething.wordpress.com — she writes very well and has quick wits, so her short stories and flash fiction will probably NOT drone on endlessly about domain names like some other people I know 🙂 ).
#blog, #blogging, #fiction, #flash-fiction, #hosting, #platform, #platforms, #publish, #publishing, #resources, #short-fiction, #short-stories, #short-story, #site, #sites, #software, #website, #websites, #wordpress, #wp, #write, #writing
The Free Magazines links in the right sidebar are an example of the way I hope some of the planned magazine webites are supposed to work. This is still in a “test” stage. 🙂
Here are some core values I am considering as cornerstones of the kinds of sites I would like to include here:
- All authors authenticated
- All posts approved by editorial staff
- High priority on balanced free speech + insightful commentary
- Respect for + tolerance of opposing viewpoints
I am planning a site with “local news” information. For this, I want to divide the Earth into regions based on both North / South and also time zones.
Here’s what I have so far:
- North America
- South America
Any thoughts / ideas? Which group would you assign Japan to? Or what about “Middle East” countries?
Well, hi there! 😀
I hope you enjoy this place. 🙂
