Progress on Websites

Good progress this week. The Poor Boy Cooking Show has the building blocks for the site. Just need to figure out how I want to lay the categories out then get content and it will be live. I’m thinking the end of February it will be ready to publish. I now have all of the sites under the GenX Noir banner under the same design format. I debated with myself about a uniform vs different style for each website approach. In the end, I felt uniformity was the better option since none of the sites content wise are any different than the others. Next week I have to focus on Pizzas for Peace. The goal for that site is about promoting events local and nationally that I’m interested in. For example, had it been up at the time I would have promoted the Women’s March last week. I’m not sure how activist the site might be. For instance, if I promote the Phoenix or San Diego Comic-Con on the page, would that be OK? There’s activist work at both, but the first thing that comes to mind about those events is comics. It’s going to take time to define what I want then see if about content. The goal for PfP is still fuzzy.

I’m delaying having go live until next week but the Star Citizen role playing web page is ready for launch. I’ve mentioned my strong like for Star Citizen on Reality Gambit. My character, I guess I should say proposed character since the game isn’t finished, is a journalist. Well, saying journalist is a bit limiting because since I’m getting immersed in the roleplay, my thinking is in the game universe people are going to have multiple jobs. So, my guy is a journalist, explorer and possible hauler. I figure that combination allows me to explore all sorts of areas and report from those sites.

The website for the character has a page for the small news organization he works for. Think of him working for a small local free paper like The New Times or San Diego Reader. Every few months he’s going to write stories for publication and they will be linked to the site as well as on the Star Citizen fan fiction/roleplaying forums.

The Star Citizen site has some incredible resources for writers if they want to write fiction for the universe. I’ll write something later about how I broke things down and how I’m developing articles to write. The process has been fun so far and I’m only going to post an article every month or two for the site. It’s a separate, fun and surprisingly relaxing activity for me and it lets me exercise my creative skills.

About Reg Mizell

I still have the firebrand energy of my youth in the 70s and 80s. For a majority of my generation, mortgages, taxes, children and families had dampened our idealism for fighting the fight of the downtrodden and underclass and we look to our own families and significant others for what is practical. Like the Baby Boomers before us, we have lost the drive to fight, the drive to speak out because we worry about the repercussions to family and our social status. I can no longer sit on the sidelines and just observe the world. I can no longer try to speak to the better nature of ourselves while I see opposing voices spew hate and stir fear in our hearts. We must face the injustice, the inaccuracies and the falsehoods head on. My website Chaotic Fringe and my online venture GenX Noir Productions will be a forums for my eclectic tastes and a voice for my activism. I hope to never forget the voiceless and will not only speak for them but provide a forum where their voices can be heard. I will always provide frank and honest commentary about the world as I see it.
