Music: Soul Merchants
Lately, I have been talking with prof_booty and awiggins about the next stage of the (r)evolution of the athenaverse. As awiggins so succintly put it, the athenaverse needs content. And folks, that is the issue: content. You can go back through the history of this site and it is filled with my empty promises where I guarantee more content is coming soon, and then there is a gaping hole of content for several months.
If I want the athenaverse to succeed, I have to constantly create content. Interesting, exciting content that will attract readers. If I attract readers, then these readers will spread the word and the athenaverse will grow beyond my hardcore audience of lurkers that I appreciate dearly. If the athenaverse is appreciated and read by a wider audience, the opportunities to expand and make it realize its true potential will present themselves. Or I can just hit "Add This Entry" and fughettaboutit for another length of time. Once again, it's up to me.
One thing that I have noticed is that my thinking around athenaverse content up to this point has been very limiting. In my last few posts, I have been mostly confining myself to talking only about how my writing is going, therefore excluding everything else that I have been up to and thinking about. There has been relatively little visual content despite the fact that I draw and make films, and want to express myself in many other mediums. Variety is not only the spice of life, but it is the seasoning that should help me to attract new readers.
If anyone out there has any suggestions on what you would like to see here on the athenaverse, let me know!
