p2pnet view P2P:- Hi all:
Sorry about not being around, this week: I badly needed a break. It’s the first time since I started p2pnet what seems like several centuries ago that I haven’t posted anything for more than a 24 hours, or so.
I took four days off — right off — because I’ve found in the past if I post anything at all, I always end up getting right back into it. So this time I stayed offline completely.
Liz, my wife, and I started the Dad’s Westcoast Wildfire Awesome Sauce project to keep ourselves and p2pnet alive, and it’s slowly coming together. But it doesn’t do itself, which means I have to spend time lining up retailers, selling at markets, doing in-store taste-ins, and so on. Also, we’re now at a couple of places in Vancouver on the mainland, and every time I go across the water, that’s a day gone.
Awesome Sauce looking good, but building a new business from scratch, and with no financial resources, is hard work, and time-consuming.
But we’re getting there.
As a kind of side issue, I also wanted to see how things would go if I just disappeared for short period.
p2pnet now has well over 50,000 pages and I wondered if they’d generate significant on-going traffic by themselves. For example, in Songwriters want $10 a month from music fans, posted on March 5, 11 days later we had a response from president Eddie Schwartz.
And there’s the possibility of a new advertiser. That’ll be a big help.
For myself, as always, as flowergirl suggests, I’ve been checking back every now and then to watch for comment spammers and hijackers.
Now it’ll be back to business as usual: I’ll post as much as I can as often as I can, using the world headline roundups as supplements.
Thanks to everyone who emailed me, but didn’t get a reply. Now you know why.
And to anyone who wants to contribute by writing, photos, cartoons, whatever, on a regular or whenever-you-feel-like-it basis. Send ‘em in.
Cheers! And thanks to everyone …
