08/27/2002 Entry: "how now?"
I've been asked by a good number of people, and myself on many occations what the hell I think I'm doing with this site. That's a really good question. The whole thing started with the Elian... Wassup video that I made. Then I tried to make some cash by doing a few others, some worked, some didn't. After that it turned into a E&N kind of site with links to goofy stuff from the web. that was fun, but I had to spend 5-6 hours a day looking up stuff and the only replies I ever heard from readers was "why didn't you up date the site today?" So that burned out pretty quickly. A few months went by with about an update a month and massive indecision on my part. Then, about 8 months ago now, I put this thing in motion. What is it? I don't know. I don't think ahead of time what I'm going to write, I don't have a big agenda, I'm just writing. Sometimes to vent, sometimes to walk myself though things, sometimes just to goof off. Depending on when I get links from FARK or whatever, sometimes I get a lot of feedback, most of the time I get none. It's funny because I've taken to writting this as if no one is ever going to see it. At least that's the way I think of it. Well, that's funny to me because the site started because over a million people a day were coming here. I sure know how to keep 'em comin eh?
Well basically, at this point, I'm writing this stuff, this site for me. If for nothing else, it forces me write something, and occationally, it puts things in perspective like nothing else. I only realized that moments ago when I read this. I saw Stand Be Me in the theaters when it came out, and had a roommate who loved TNG but was never too big on it myself. But damn, I can't go a day without checking Wil's site. It's things like that last post that really make it worth while. Not just writing websites and crap like this, but recognizing doing what you want to do and trying to do it the best you can.
I'm more excited about the gallery, and a few other projects I'm working on right now than anything in a really, really long time. And I have a feeling the next 12 months are going to be spectacular. I'm glad I have this site so that I'll be able to watch it unfold.
