OK… so here’s a not so quick explanation of how I think these things will work among my various websites.It turns out I am going to have a few. Somehow a hobby becomes an obsession. Maybe I compartmentalize a little too much? The sites will be similar in some ways, but very very different in many others.
JoeShields.com will be sort of a “central” hub for all of my various sites and interests. I hope to mainly cover positive things here… sites, videos, jokes, stories that make you laugh, smile, say “aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.”
I have other sites for other purposes. SarcasmWorks.com (under construction), for example, will pretty much function as the alter ego to this site. I will be posting sarcastic remarks, stupid people tricks, Darwin Award nominees and generally things that make you cringe a little.
TheKidsThinkIAmNuts.com is probably going to be my favorite site. It will be a sort of travelogue of my experiences on the road. Initially, just an occasional long trip with lots of little local side trips along the way. If you take a look, there are already several entries from my March 2010 trip back to Evansville, Indiana and quite a few others. These are just short, fun posts about such things as an Eiffel tower replica with a cowboy hat on top, a two story outhouse and a goat tower, just to name a few. My position at work has changed and the new position should afford me the chance to visit some odd and unusual places along the way.
GottaLottaStories.com (under construction) is my newest, latest idea and I think I will limit that one to just what it says… stories. Some true, some not and probably a lot somewhere in between. I’m not even sure all the stories will be mine, but what I hope they will be is interesting, often funny and entertaining always.
Chatdiaries.com is my original website idea, my firstborn so to speak. Envisioned originally as a place where BOTH sides of online relationships could post their versions of the same online relationship. Turns out, people are really that willing to share their stories. Currently the site still has the original stories, including Christy which seems to be the most popular. I am also beginning to use the site to support an undernet.org channel by the same name (#chatdiaries)
Speaking of firstborns…. LianneMarie.com is the blog of my oldest daughter. I really have nothing to do with this one, but what kind of father would I be if I didn’t promote her blog??? I love you Lianne.
