I'll assume any readers I get today are ones flooding over from JV's to actually check the date on "The Big 4-0". So be it. At least it may get my nonexistant readership back a bit (seeing that any of the four people who actually read this blog most likely gave up hope in the almost 2 moths I spent not posting). Anywho, I'm back now, and I'll try to stay a while.
I've recently come to realize how ridiculously incompetent I am when it comes to the internet. I mean, I'm not trying to brag, but I'd like to think that I've had some pretty decent idaes for web projects in the past, most notably in the last year or so. The most well-known (but not even close to the best), was of course SFU. Anyone raeding this who knows me (as in, everyone who could possibly have heard of this blog), knows that back in May I used to jump around different SciFi websites tagging the hot new SciFi Ultraists, which, to be fair to my bruised ego, wasn't all taht bad of an idea. You see, the original idea I came up with for it was to basically have our (my friends and mine) very own weekly podcast dealing with science fiction reviews, classics, fun facts, etc. Basically, us ahving a good time talking about one of our favorite things. As a matter of fact, i still think the whole idea is a worthwhile one if we can ever figure out what the hell we're doing. The idea, in a nutshell, was to integrate this podcast-type show into a scifi webpage, essentially creating a site that people would hopefully be attracted to by the podcast until enough people joined our little clan for us to have a viable, semi-functioning community.
Here's the catch- None of know the first thing about making a website. As a matter of fact, in our fear of our own incompetance, we were not up for committing any sum of money (be it 10 dollars or more) to the project. Ultimately, our inexperience and lack of commitment was its downfall. Since the SFU tragedy, many more ideas have been thrown on the table- Ismyhomeboy, Insidejokesonamug (this one's money, I promise!), but we've come to realize that we can't go anywhere with these ideas because we have no idea what we're doing. I suppose it's a learning process, but none of us have the time, money, or devotion- just the inspiration and conceptuality. Still, I gotta make this ASGC website real quick-like.
