Site Building, Branding, Progress, Placeholders, and questioning my intentions….

An accomplished entrepreneur pal and semi-mentor of mine –someone I nag via email for startup advice on a daily basis– asked me a very profound question about http://www.DarrionJWrites.com.

He asked…

How do you intend on leveraging it for professional opportunities, or monetizing the site itself?

To which I replied…

“The current site is more of a web-portfolio/placeholder than anything…The plan after full launch is to upload progress on projects, web exclusive content, serials, (some) blog posts, and brief chronicles of my adventures in brand building.¬†It’ll be my visual resume for any possible professional opportunities.”

I thought I gave a decent response. Then I thought about it some more… and more…. and some more….
Then I thought, what’s the sense in waiting to upload progress, web content, and serials. Why not build it now, and ¬†here? Why wait? Who or what am I waiting for?
Writing and posting is within my sphere of possibilities, even at this stage of the “process”.
So, f*** a placeholder. I will do my best to upload at least one blog post of content, minimum bi-weekly.
Yeah…. that’s being progressive.
