Shipmates, as most of my avid readership knows, the Dread Pirate has a variety of different cyber efforts. Having various web pages scattered to the four cyber-winds is good for keeping the pirate hunters at bay, but it has its drawbacks. From the aspect of being a motivational / horror author it is not necessarily a boon to be unknown. Thus, my quandary begins.
Having a web presence can mean a variety of things, but for an author it all boils down to one thing, visibility. It occurred to me the other day that while my efforts have been scattered, they may have not been for not. I realized that I had the right idea about what I was doing, but, I had gone about it in absolute reverse fashion. I had built a web presence in reverse so-to-speak. I had created very good parts but had no real ‘whole’ to show for my efforts. I came to the solution that what was needed was a secret place that Crew, readers and fellow sailors of life could go in order to see the entirety of the Dread Pirate’s cyber-realm. Being a sly fellow, I managed to purchase a small island from a group of disgruntled islanders that had grown tired of golden sunrises and seventy degree year round temps. I got a great deal on a piece of cyber real estate.
Shipmates, I proudly and quite boldly herald the grand covert opening of Dread Pirate’s Secret Cyber-Island! It is the absolute definitive resource on all things Dread Pirate! Please sail by and take time for a short visit. (Make sure to bookmark your favorite new Cyber-Island!!!!)
