Whew! Now that the move to Venice is complete and unpacking is mostly complete I’ve gotten back into the swing of things and am cranking things out as much as I can. If you follow me on twitter you are likely up to date on some of these things but I thought I’d go ahead try to collect them all here if for no other reason then so I can point to it over the next few months when people ask me what I’ve been working on. Here are the things that are currently taking up space on my plate:
Metblogs.com still running the day to day on this as my main and primary focus. We recently launched San Diego and are are still kind of in soft launch mode for Global Conspiracy. We’ve brought in a bunch of new authors recently too and I’m excited to see where things are headed the rest of this year. We’ve also just hit 700 members on the hub which continues to be an interesting experiment.
Urbanjournal.com is a kind of exciting new project both because it’s a topic I’m very interested in these days and because it’s the first not locally focused site Jason and I have built as Bode Media. If you haven’t checked it out yet please do. I’m really happy with the immediate positive feedback on this and rather pleased with how the forums there are complimenting the main site so well.
Catworkout.com Tara and I thought of, built, filmed, edited and launched this site in about 3 hours. People liked it so we spent some more time on it and filmed a few more shorts. People liked those so we’ve got some more planned. Please to enjoy!
TSPN1 (Top Secret Project Number 1) This is really exciting and I can’t wait to brag about it. A bunch of us spent some time in front of and behind the camera last weekend filming a bunch of episodes of a soon to be announced series. We’ve got some editing to do, but I think it’s going to turn out amazing. Hopefully I’ll be pimping this in the near future.
There are also TSPN2, TSPN3, TSPN4, TSPN5 and TSPN6 but they are even way too top secret to mention here but with any luck they won’t be for long.
I’ve also done a few speaking and consulting gigs in the last few months and am trying to do more of them for various reasons. More about that can be found here including info about booking me if you are interested in such things.
You know how when you load up a giant plate of food at a salad bar and rush back to your table and eat the best stuff right away but still have some stuff on your plate that you thought looked really delicious but are now kinda full and while you probably can’t eat it with the same vigor you did with the first stuff but you don’t want to just throw it out either so you are kinda slowly picking at it and hoping you get some kind of second wind so you can polish it off? Yeah…
Irish Whiskey Forums I bought this URL a few years ago when I stumbled across the rabbit hole that is Irish Whiskey and realized there was no good place for people to trade info and tips online. I never did anything with it and since then more folks have gotten interested so I decided I’d finally install some forum software and see what happens. It’s currently a ghost town but I haven’t really tried to promote it much. I should probably work on that.
Culver City Art Galleries Since I’ve gone ahead and brought up old URLs that haven’t had much done to them let me direct your attention to culvercityartgalleries.com. As you can see, it’s not anything like what it should be. I want to change that and make it something actually interesting and useful. Ideally I want to include some twitter results as a cool way to show what people are saying about the area. Also maybe a googlemap that people can add locations to. Want to help out with this one? Let me know.
Fixedr.com Speaking of neglected projects, my test social network for fixed gear bike fans using Ning is still live and *slowly* growing. I need to spend more time on this one as well but I’ve been off my bikes a lot due to the move and traveling so I haven’t had a lot to chime in about. Hopefully that will change this summer because I really do think the site could be something cool.
Finally there are a few things that I wish were on my plate but for one reason or another they are firmly off to the site of it. If I have my way they will get kicked and prodded until they are right on there and then I’ll tell you all about them.
It’s late and I’m rambling, can you tell?
