It’s concentration weekend. Probably will not be doing formal posts this week. I have a couple of irons in the fire I have to finalize. My goal is that March will get 2 off the ground formally, so the next few weeks will be getting the content finished.
I didn’t announce it because it a soft opening, in a sense, but the Poor Boy Cooking Show is up and active. A few recipes are up but I plan on having a few more up by March. Lots of experimenting, which sounds fun but when I work long hours the last thing I want to do is come up with an inventive receipt that will take hours to prep, cook and taste test. I had a good list of proposed meals all set and ready to go, but I’m pretty sure those were lost when my backpack was taken.
The other site that will start is the Star Citizen RP website. This has given me lots of fun because I’m diving into creating interesting content for the page.
I’ve talked about Star Citizen on Reality Gambit for the past few months. It’s an in-development game that is part space sim, part first person shooter MMO. When I joined the game I really wanted to immerse myself in the RP and I’ve building my backstory. One of the professions is reporter and I decided to engage my creative side by making stories as a reporter based on my character’s reporting in the game.
The web page is the character journal for Whitworth Frazen Guttman Journal Network, the WFG and every month new articles will be published by the character on his page. Think of the journal as a futurist alternative news outlet like the San Diego Reader or New Times. I don’t want to give away a lot about what I have planned out, but it has been fun and challenging to play in the sandbox. I just finished the third article for the journal, including pictures and I have one more article I want to write before launch.
The first article to launch will be about Abdel SeVast, an aging musician talking about his new music.
So, I’m keeping busy and trying to make develop opportunities.
UPDATE: See how I roll? I take a few moments to review the new article and bam! I decide to go ahead and activate the Star Citizen page now, but will still wait until the first week in March to publish the first article. Why? Because when I was looking at WordPress (which I publish with) there’s a schedule option! Honestly didn’t know that but it makes sense. So, I can get everything prepped and set the date and time when I want the articles to go live. Perfect!
UPDATE 2: I don’t get how my brain works sometime. I think employers like me because that little switch goes off and bam, automation will not stop Reg kicks in. When I posted the previous update, it was at 6am and I was sure I would be finished and in bed by 7am. Yes, I got home last might from work and it was about 7pm when I got here. Now it’s 8am, I’m still up because I decided since I’m going to go live with the Star Citizen page I should add a bit more to the intro page, which lead to me redesigning the original graphics I had for the page. Once I’m done with the graphics I may go to sleep but since I can schedule the articles I’ll probably get the graphics done for the second article (I have the graphics for the first and third one done) then I’ll probably start on the fourth. I just want to sleep but my mind is going with ideas so I keep going.
