I have gotten some questions about advertising, making announcements for others, and possible other business ideas in conjunction with the reorganization and downsizing of my web presence (at least the “1.0” static portion) so I thought I would state what I think I can do,
To recoup: The 16 blogs on Blogger were removed on Jan. 3, 2022. However select postings are gradually being restored to the “legacy” portion of this side (that is, flat html without content management) reachable at this link. Users can contact me at the email address below if they want to request anything be reposted.
The four WordPress blogs hosted by Bluehost are set to expire in early May, 2022. It is a little bit complicated to explain here, and there is a chance that the two older blogs (set up in Dec. 2013; the other two were set up in May 2016, almost six years ago) might remain until mid June.
The site “doaskdotell” remains as a “business site”, and is reserved through December 2023. The business activities to be supported include direct book sales, links to main sites (POD at Author Solutions and also Amazon (Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (Nook). They also include commentary on screenwriting activities as I am pursuing the possibility of films (documentary and/or conventionally casted and acted) based on the material in the books (including a pitch-fest at the end of April), support for work on music (in the sense that it might get performed), as well as new business ideas (startup support) such as data tracking or paywall consolidation.
This site will not have its own blog. I am finding that running multiple WordPress blogs on concurrent accounts can lead to complications.
Instead I expect to set up a label like “doaskdotell-business” for the blog (which comes up directly from johnwboushka.com). I may create “music” and “books” subcategories on this blog.
It would be possible to make courtesy announcements under another subcategory for this label, call it “announcements”.
But in the meantime, right now, these “business” functions are being documented on my doaskdotellnotes.com blog, which will not be available after mid June 2022, after which it all migrates to the “doaskdotell-business” categories on the johnwboushka.com blog.
The end result of the simplification will be at most two sites, “johnwoushka.com” (with a WordPress blog component and a legacy flat-file component) and “doaskdotell.com”. With the exception of the “doaskdotell” label and possibly page, the johnwboushka site is the “personal” site based on a legal identity, for offering personal views on things, without too much gratuitousness.
“Business” in my context means, activity resulting in financial or “pseudo-financial” contact with consumers (which can be businesses, and which can involve crytocurrency or “likeconomics” or analytics), or activity intended to result in such. A business entity can be a non-profit and still be a “business” in this sense because it still needs to raise money or be paid somehow (for example, normally a non-profit can have a trademark). But a business entity is separate from an individual who speaks publicly strictly under his/her (or “eir”) own personal agency. I need a grammatically singular pronoun and possessive case to define this concept!
