“Major Changes”

I had half a huge post worked out, about corporate discounts and stage-gate-processes, being able to kill a project and how the parts are sometimes worth more than the whole.

Then I decided: fuck it. If some major corporation can do it, so can we.

So, instead of a spin-off and other major stuff, I’m just gonna change around some categories and stuff.

We’re back in business, baby.

What’s new, then?

A couple of entertainment categories, so far. And a “nonsense” category. That’s where all the stupid youtube vids are supposed to go. 😛

Major Changes Coming Up

Yeah, I have done some thinking – and there’ll be more than one blog afterwards. It’ll take at least another month (realistically: 27th June I’m done with exams (haven’t got to the part where I have to remember the name for what I’m planning to do here – corporate discount, maybe?) so I’ll be busy drinking for that weekend – Yeah, 30th June sounds reasonable) though.

Daniel knows nothing of this (as of yet – heh :D) but there’ll be at least two blogs. Maybe that means they’ll both die but this just doesn’t really work. Depending on how much free time I can find, there might be three (or if I were to come across LOADS of free time, there might be four – but that number four would be quite time-consuming, me thinks). So, what will change?

Basically, no more entertainment posts on here. Those’ll be outsource to a new place. There, I plan to write reviews – mostly for TV shows (the first show I plan to cover will start just long enough after my exams are done for me to review on episode of its first season per day before), probably for movies. That one might take anywhere from something like 2 hours during quiet times a week to maybe 10 hours during buisy weeks. Anyway, I plan to concentrate on what I can do – at least what I think I can – no use in linking to news stories, other people do that and they do it better and with more resources. Just content I manage to create.

As for this blog – until end of June, nothing much will change. After that, I’ll focus more on politics. Actually, just politics. Again, not necessarily lots of useless reposting of stuff that other people posted but rather more in-depth analysis of interesting and more basic stuff. Not yet sure what’ll happen to “various links” and “random questions” as I quite like these (same goes for the random youtube-vids which wouldn’t necessarily fit well into the new entertainment blog) so that’s where number three might come in. Not very time-consuming, just posting those fun things. Basically, a “fun blog”.

Ah well, as usual – big plans. We’ll see what’ll happen in the end.

100th Post

Well, this is the first one of hopefully a great many celebratory posts. Didn’t take us too long to reach this goal. In doing so we got about 1000 visits – not too bad either but obviously plenty of potential to increase that number!

Major problem: We still haven’t quite found what this is gonna be about.

Movie reviews? Did that, a couple of times.

YouTube Videos? Did that, too. Quite often, in fact.

Dan Mitchell? Just kidding, obviously, but looking at how often I’ve written about this guy one might become a little suspicious. 😉

Ron Paul got his fair share of mentions, too. Still, his time in the limelight is more or less over. Sure, we’ll still post about what his up to – not because the mainstream media cares but because we care.

Biggest success, obviously, was the whole homeschooling thing we had going for a while back in the beginning of April.

Personal favourite? Probably this one because I feel like it’s the one post where I added the most value.

So yeah, where do we go from here? We’re under no pressure to please anyone apart from ourselves. No need to regularly post either (though I try to do that whenever possible). This isn’t a commercial project and won’t be anytime in the foreseeable future (personally I consider the odds of this just dying slowly far higher).

Let us know what you liked best, of what you’d like more and of what you’d like less. 😉

It’s gonna be Sunday.

Will Be Back

Maybe tomorrow, maybe Monday but certainly Thursday at the latest. Real life has the tendency to get in the way of blogging sometimes.

So I guess that wasn’t you, eh dq?

I thought you fucked up yesterday and decided to stop posting – turns out, it wasn’t you…

Stargate’s Joe Mallozzi suffers from the same problem:

Well, the problem was not fixed – because the problem is WordPress has decided to change the dashboard design. Whereas once it was a neatly arranged page in-easy-to-read type, it is now a hodgepodge of sections presented in a miniscule font-size crowned by a garish orange border.

Well, the “write post” area has improved somewhat (edit to say: in comparison to yesterday when it wasn’t working – definitely NOT in comparison to before!) – but not by much. At least it’s possible to post again.

Talks

I’ve talked about it in my introduction: Talks.

In the future there will be some Talks about a given topic. Either midmull or I will start a post as draft with Title “[Talk] Topic”, and write a little something (hopefully controversial) about it. Then the other will respond until either a conclusion is reached or we’re tired of discussing that particular topic.

Here’s how a Talk could look like:

[Talk] Is abortion bad?

d: Yes, definitely. (I have to say that, since midmull will say, it’s not.)

m: Oho, I disagree. Every pregnant woman has the right to choose.

d: And hasn’t the unborn child a right to live?

m: No.

d: Let’s agree to disagree, then.
