Today

  • Reset analytics. Somehow analytics and search console stopped working. Probably from multiple upgrades without checking their status. Appears to be working now.
  • Found a bunch of crawl errors from search console.
  • Tuned the Patrion account
  • Setup MailChimp email subscription service.
  • Started scheming about intro video for YouTube

I spent a few hours working on the site this am, but now I have to head off to shoe some horses.

This evening has been productive. Besides the bullet points above, I spent some time doing full backups and getting ready to move stuff around to make more sense. I have a good idea how I want the general layout of this domain to tell the story of open source in a very broad spectrum way that can be drilled down easily to the topic of choice.

Tomorrow

  • Fix crawl errors
  • Consider which, if any further social media channels to start.
  • Consider which, if any further crowd funding or other monetization methods to use. I like Jack Spirko’s subscriber discount scheme.

Longer term todos

  • Intro video.
  • Rearrange site structure.
  • Membership discount scheme.
  • Consider a bitcoin payback for early Patreon contributors? I wonder if this would be a good way to get those first few signed up to Patreon. I just want to make sure don’t jump the gun and waste an opportunity.

I completely understand if you are not interested in supporting this financially, but consider subscribing and sharing and just generally being social.

October 24, 2016: This is the first of my commitment to a daily update of my work to further this project.

I have been pecking away at this site for years now. There is a good bit of content chucked here and there with poorly designed structure and articles not particularly well written on several different WordPress installs under this domain. I have been burning the candle on both ends making it better. This is not my first rodeo and it is going well.

It is time to take this to the next level. I have a plan and all the tools and experience I need. Slow season is upon me, and you can be assured I will make the best of it, but I would love your support for time and travel to bring this project to a place that can help more people.

Today’s tasks

Tomorrow’s tasks
