I'm Still In The Realm of the Psuedo-Living

Thank you for the texts, calls, hostile takeovers...

For the past several months I have been taking a hellish, online, seemingly neverending brokerage course. I finally finished it. [applause here.] I still have the state exam to contend with, but a huge burden is lifted just having the coursework over with.

See... I have personality afflictions.

I am a strategic planner. A brainstormer. A thinker, not a doer, not a yesman. A bum, really. A bum with good intentions.

All that to say this: I had this great idea over a year ago. I wasn't alone. It's a common blogthought. Many of us have decided that the best part of blogging is the meets, right, right? So I thought we should have a site dedicated to future meets, prior meets, blackmail pics, calendars, fun times, non? Prob: I am a bum with good intentions, remember?

Therefore, I have the following dusty url up for adoption:


Take it. It's yours. It's free. I humbly ask to be favorably linked, perhaps even given a spare set of keys. But clearly I cannot be in charge of site sustenance. This place is already on life support. Any site-builders out there?

Holy crap! You're alive! I tagged you with a Christmas meme and you never did it, so you owe me one next year.

Does this mean that I have to get off my lazy butt and throw a site together?

Key, I understand what you're going through. I'm finding it harder and harder to blog and do a full time university course load at the same time. Good luck with the state exam, I'm sure you'll do great!

I hope someone takes on the blogmeets.com project - I love seeing all the pics & hearing all the stories from the meets.

Take care!

I will, Catfish. Thanks for the support!

A natural mistake Zonker, you good looking thing you.
Damn, I don't believe I just said that. Time to watch a man show or something.
If Zonker doesn't want to do anything with it, I would at least be willing to host it on the same server that my blog is on and put together a generic template. Since the wife decided to move off of my server and on to blogspot (cause it's something SHE did) I have the space anyway. Actually I think it's because the URL was her name and she wasn't interested in anyone from the board of education finding interesting shit on her site.

Somebody take that site before you guys form a fugging daisy chain, or something. Jesus.

You rang Richard?

I'm late as hadeez on this one, and that's a damned shame if you're me, but a pleasant surprise if you're not. Imagine the t-shirts sales slices for "blown eyed" and "Jawja"... Got to be a Jackson in there somewhere, I'm just sayin', somebody could, if they wanted to, twist a bit(a small bit) from such an idea.

I never could color well between the lines, so makin' it purty ain't somemthing I'd be good at. I hired a gun for that. Well, I hired a phin, but he shot straight and had the patience of a saint.

There's enough folks 'round that probably could make it work. What would you want on it? Some kind of Scheduling function to coordinate the "best" date based on what dates most of the "I wanna go's" could show, or just a vote for a date deal? Hotel/accomadations? Same deal? vote or ask for discount based on where the most folk wanted to stay? Hotel bookin' interfaces with the site, or at least quick links to where folks might stay for a given meet?

Flight schedules into/out of the closest airport(s)?

It's a cool idea, and there's even more things that could be done with the idea "thinker"... think on it some more.

There could be the obligatory photo's from the meets, maybe some sort of system in place where people at the meet "approve/disapprove" of their photo's being shown so nobody gets outed accidentally.

Trackbacks to a forum for folks that attended the meet to talk a little smack, tell lies, make rumors, prepare wedding plans, etc...

"Meet rolls"... not as bad as it sounds. Blog rolling software for a given meet so folks could collect those planning to attend and then those that did afterward in a handy script for your site after or before the fact... just so's you could keep up with the peeps.

Good idea Key.
