I’ve set this down as I’m getting really pissed off with all the shite on the web about us and spurious claims to authorship of Crawling Chaos creative work so have determined to get a proper site on-line as a proper repository for works, history and truth and with the ultimate aim of getting all Crawling Chaos work into the public domain. I do this with full trust in the Gohonzon as my cause is just, but in the knowledge that I may have to ruffle some feathers.
2007 Update December 2nd:
Since I determined to get this going, things have progressed in three stages
- Started using basic HTML way of working
- Started using Dreamweaver to manage and create HTML
- Ditched Dreamweaver and started using WordPress as the basis for my website because I found I was commenting alot on stuff I’d already written.
- Yes I know I said three. It’s like Monty Python and the Spanish Inquisition sketch. In August/September I implemented the WordPress stats system which counts page impressions excluding ones from yourself (me). Since then, I’m getting a clear idea of how many people look at the (Crawling Chaos) site. It’s about 2700 so far, about 800 a month.
This is quite good I think. Others may think it’s pathetic compared to the major players but in reality, I only imagined one hit a day, say 30 a month. So if I’d have been counting from when I started, you could say I’m running at about 10,000 views annually, which is quite good considering I don’t use any networking sites like MySpace and Facebook so the clicks are nearly all derived from repeats and web searches. This is good.
In light of this, I’ve decided to claw back a bit of money (I know it’s only cents) by sticking some adverts on the site(s). Every few clicks I get is a few more pence of my 50 quid annual hosting charges.
Update March 6, 2008
I did a quick recording this evening, the first since 1995. Maybe I’m not allergic any more! This is it (although I’ll probably redo it when I’ve time):
There is a supposedly official site in MySpace that purports to be “true”. However, it’s a faceless non-entity, devoid of links and any information, that sits wanking in the rest of the MySpace torment, where people cram their spaces with unreadable shite that masquerades as content without any idea of form or structure apart from shouting “I’m here” in a little tiny voice. I had a few comments when I was impolite and reacted accordingly. However, I have had no contact, assistance or references since. I think it’s time to be brutish again.
