A Quick Thank You
Posted by Jamie Insalaco
I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thanks to everyone who has been following the blog via email, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or any of the 90 million other ways we stay in touch these days. I really appreciate that you take time out of your day to visit the site, ‘Like’ a post, rate a post via the stars, share it on your social network, drop a comment… or any of the 90 million other things you can do at the bottom of each post.
If you have any suggestions, questions, comments or complaints, feel free to drop a comment or send me an email. Maybe there’s a particular type of post you’d like to see more or less of… whatever, just let me know. I can’t promise I’ll be able to make everyone happy, but I’ll do my best to accommodate. For example, A Fly On The Wall: Michael Jordan And His Hitler Mustache is one of the most popular posts on the site of all time, and AFOTW is something I’ve been meaning to get back to, but I haven’t been able to find the right topic, so any suggestions would be welcomed.
Ways to connect:
There are a zillion ways for us to stay connected. Here are the ones I do my best to support:
Follow Via Email
This one is infallible; if you subscribe to the site via email, you’ll never miss a thing. If you’re like me and you’re always connected to email, than this is the best way to follow the blog. To Follow Via Email, find this widget and enter your email address. It looks like this:
Twitter is another great way to follow the blog as each time a post goes live, a note with a link is sent to Twitter automatically, so this way is also rock solid. I consider myself fairly internet savvy, and I can post messages to Twitter without a problem, but following other people has proven to be a bit difficult for me. (I mean, I can click the ‘follow’ button without a problem, but I find the feed difficult to read.) I know there are these things called hash tags and I should be using them for… something… but I don’t, and I’m flat out awful at having a conversation. I’ll try to figure that Twitter thing out at some point so I can use it more effectively. Practice makes perfect, I suppose.
I really hate the ‘Timeline’ thing. I never used Facebook much before that update, but I’m even less inclined to use anything but the news feed now. Anyway, Facebook is another great way to follow the blog as each time a post goes live, a note with a link is sent to Facebook automatically, so this way is also rock solid. I’m also trying to do a ‘link of the day’ here, which just something I found on the net that I thought was worth a look.
YouTube is another place to see the few tiny videos I’ve been able to crank out rather than using the Video category link above. If you have a YouTube/Google account and follow the blog there, new videos will come up in your Subscriptions… you probably know all this already.
Hopefully, I’ll start posting more stuff to eBay soon. As fair warning, it’s going to be a lot of old comic books, so I don’t blame you if that doesn’t peak your interest. Oh, and Star Wars stuff… there was this two or three year period where I was buying Star Wars stuff and people were buying me Star Wars stuff… and it got totally out of hand. Anyway, every little bit helps as there are tons of things I’d like to do on the blog (particularly video stuff) that I just can’t afford right now. The website has a few costs associated with it, but until I actually start uploading video, they’re fairly minimum on an annual basis. Still, they’re there, and they are not fun.
Does anyone still use RSS? Am I fool for not using it ever? Anyway, it’s available here.
