Instead of posting this on some dev server, I’m just making it public so I can ask for help and anyone can look at what I’m doing.

Don’t expect too much for a while, but I want to figure out how to make a media company that doesn’t rely on exposing their readers to trackers, retargetting, getting their data mined, javascript malware, etc.

We’re going to start off with just a simple site sponsorship with that ad on the side. I want to bootstrap other indie media sites too, but for some reason I just became obsessed with this one. A music culture and basketball culture blog and forum – with room for expansion to other things under that umbrella, too, at some point, if that’s the direction the site should go in. No VC money. No pressure to grow forever. No IPO.

I want to build a community. I want to eventually have a great front page. I also want to build them with wordpress and plugins and themes that anyone can use – I want to show anyone that you can bootstrap a community with these amazing open source products. At least I think I can do it.

Anyway, if you want to support the site, you can have that ad on the side from now until the end of Feb for $1k. And then March is also $1k. I will also mention you in all videos twitter shoutouts, etc. I think you will come out ahead on that deal in the long run, as those posts and videos will stay up forever, and you will have your sponsorship listed on the support page forever.

Until we get everything straightened out – sorry about our appearance. And…more news soon. Stay tuned.
