This site has completed two years. A brief comment on what it has achieved and what it will aim for in the immediate future is pertinent.
This is the 180th blog entry. The blog is the largest part of the site. There are a few dozen other pages that constitute the rest of this site. So this is a small site, yet over the past 8 days it averaged approximately 2962 unique visitors per day. Not bad for a small and young site.
This site started out as a hobby of mine. During the first year I updated it infrequently; even let over a month go by without any updates. However, by the end of the first year the site was attracting close to a thousand unique users a day, and I decided to step up the frequency of updating the blog because more content means more readers and wider dispersal of the message. But I have not been able to work on this site as much as I would like to. I am hoping that I will have comparatively more time to work on it in the future.
Attracting more readers has a downside though: more comments and emails that I need to respond to and more delays in my responses. Eventually I will have to say that whereas I read all emails, I am unable to respond to them all. I will also be unable to respond to all comments posted at the blog, though this problem could be lessened if I make people register with the site and log-in in order to comment. This will reduce absurd, trivial, frivolous, hit-and-run and abusive comments as well as queries that waste my time since they have already been addressed but the reader has not bothered to read enough of the site to find the answer. However, this is a last resort option. Allowing anonymous commenting is fine with me. It hasn’t created too much trouble as of yet. I have had to ban only one person from commenting so far and repeatedly warned two others to leave after their obstinate refusal to behave (one left and another came back minus the vitriol).
Regular readers would have noted that I usually ignore profanity. There is a reader that has posted many absurd, moronic, useless and profane comments, and I have asked her to behave or leave on many occasions, but she hasn’t been banned. On the other hand, the only banned person so far didn’t use any profanity. His sins were to debate me ad nauseum on scientific matters where he was clearly misinformed/little informed, acting as if I had not previously addressed his concerns, resorting to foul debating techniques such as ad hominem and not stopping in spite of repeated requests. What bugs me is people having little to no knowledge of the scientific matters under consideration debating with me and using, to boot, foul techniques such as assigning malicious motives to the opponent. Of course, these individuals will accuse me of being the one who is scientifically misinformed, but the reader can see for himself who has been extensively backing up his arguments by citing data from current peer-reviewed journal articles to support his contentions.
Plans for the immediate future
Whereas this site will continue to educate, it needs to move beyond being merely educational. One possible idea to expedite this process came to me when I had some computer-generated images, like this, printed on glossy photo paper for a study. The actual image had much higher resolution than the sample shown and printed beautifully on the photo paper. A number of people at the store that printed it were impressed and asked me all sorts of questions regarding it. This gave me the idea that I should come up with computer-generated 3-D feminine beauty art and try to sell it at this site. Enough sales will mean sufficient money for action in the form of recruiting and paying well feminine beauties to pose in bikinis, paying someone to blog on beauty tips for women at this site, and trying to set up an online clothes retailing business that will eventually go toward establishing the alternative fashion industries that I talked about. I will briefly elaborate on these goals.
If one could pay a few thousand dollars to a woman to pose in a bikini, which is a lot more than what the typical nude model earns for a photo shoot, most women will be willing, which will allow one to be very selective. This is how one could recruit some of the most attractive women to promote feminine beauty.
Posting high quality information on beauty tips at this site will help undermine fashion magazines to some extent since this is one of their selling points. Whereas I have posted basic information on this count, I don’t have the time to be writing on them extensively, and would need to pay a qualified individual to do it.
Setting up an online clothes retailing business will be a challenge, but nothing that couldn’t be surmounted given enough money.
So I need to get the artwork going. I hope to be selling in a month or so.
