A potentially profitable idea.

October 10, 2010

I made a new banner for the site that I feel better reflects the content of my blog, with a lady cyborg and a book-y feel to it. It took me all of an hour to make, so if you hate it, I won’t be upset. My Photoshop skills are elementary at best, as demonstrated by the following:

Anyway, I have no real content for this post except to explain my current predicament. As I have reached my 1000th hit since starting real posts here, I feel that it may be beneficial for me to get a web host and a domain name and perhaps attempt to market my blog to something a little more substantial than a free WordPress blog. I realize that a majority of my traffic is from people trying to find erotic Twilight fanfic, but I feel with a slight amount of effort (which I, thus far, have put none forth), I could maybe find a small audience with similar feminist science fiction/pop culture interests.

If I were to do this, my goal would be to update frequently with more reviews, pop culture complaints, top ten lists, and sci fi/pop culture feminist news.

Do you think this would be a worthwhile endeavor for me, or should I keep up my current not-for-profit, seldom-updated, difficult-to-properly-customize blog? Also, do you like my new banner?

    You should do it. I love reading your blog; I just wish you would post more! Here’s my setup: http://www.amybakerdesigner.com (I’m shameless…).

It’s been too long, and we’ve blogs and much more to catch up on!
