So I’ve got a problem. I used to spend a lot of time on the blog and recently, because all of my free time has gone to YouTube, I’ve dropped off to a couple of posts per week and mostly, I fight to find things to say here outside of Horror Show Sunday because, as I said, all of my energy has been going to YouTube. But that’s not how I intended it, in fact, my original intention was to have the blog be my primary source of communication and everything else was supposed to send people here.
Yeah, that’s not how it worked out unfortunately.
But I’ve been feeling like the blog has been left behind and that’s not what I want either. It really feels like it’s going nowhere and even though it gets some traffic, which I can’t imagine why because I never advertise it, everything here is outdated and I don’t like the look so my question for you, the reader, is what do you want to see here?
I’d really like to tie it in with YouTube more, I had the idea of, maybe once or twice a week depending on the content, of giving expanded looks at some of the videos I do there. A lot of the time, I don’t want to bore the viewers so I give shorter answers than I might otherwise give and maybe, if people are interested, I might want to expand on things here. So let me know if that’s something you’re interested in seeing.
Some things here are going away. I lost track of the Bitchspot on YouTube page forever ago and that’s just going to get deleted. There’s no way I could keep up on it. I feel the same way about Religious Horror Show, but I really wanted there to be a place where people could go to see all of that but as you can see, I’m way out of date on it and I don’t feel like I’ll ever get it caught up, so I’d like suggestions of what I should do to showcase all of the horrors of religion.
Then there are the visuals, which right now suck. I’ve been out of the WordPress game for so long now that I don’t even know what I can do, much less what I should do. Because I no longer use Facebook or Twitter, and I really want to completely delete those accounts, that will be the end of what little advertising I do around here. I really would love to find a plug-in that lets me auto-post to Gab or Minds, or Patreon or MakerSupport for that matter, but I haven’t found anything that will work. I did get a plug-in that will let individuals post their comments to a lot of those social media sites that I will implement, but I really need an automated solution for promotion here. I just don’t have the time to manually repost all of my articles to Minds and Gab and Patreon and MakerSupport. I wind up doing it in massive batches a couple of times a month and that’s just not what I want. Any suggestions?
And the theme I’ve got right now is crap, I’m sorry to say. I haven’t had a chance to go looking for something new yet, maybe this weekend, but it feels totally outdated and dull. Ideas for that are also welcomed.
Really, I want to make all of my online activism, if it can be called that, cohesive. Maybe I can get YouTube videos to automatically post here? I’ll have to look into it. This used to be my one-stop shop for everything I did online, now it feels like it’s gotten lost in the weeds and I hate that. So again, let me know what you’d like to see, you come here after all, you have to have some suggestions.
Thanks for your time and help.
