Well, this place seems to be up and running pretty well after a few hours of GIMPing and CSS hacking. And if you didn’t have a clue as to what I just said, don’t worry, you’ll get used to it. 🙂 This whole blog thing is going to take a little getting used to myself. Anyway, here’s a quick overview of what’s (hopefully) in the future for this website:
1) First, I want to try to change the focus of the whole site. There are plenty of places out there that review and link to free software. I couldn’t possibly even come close to their size and comprehensiveness, so I’ve decided to quit the whole “reviews of and links to tons of free and open-source software” thing. Instead, I’d like to focus more on making a website that people enjoy going to regularly: one that both entertains and educates them, and also gives them software tools to help in their everyday lives.
2) Second, I’d like to flesh out a few of the many rich interpretations of my website’s name: “The Free Arrow.” Although most of you probably didn’t even know there was an interpretation for the name, it does indeed have significance. In the future, I’d like to post more articles and links to websites about “freedom” in three major ideology focus areas of my life: 1) religion/philosophy, 2) computer software and 3) society/politics.
3) Third, I’m going to try to update this place a lot more often. I’m hoping that by switching to a blog-like format, that it will be easier for me to post a quick comment, link or joke whenever I get the chance. Since the semester is almost over and summer stretches out in front of me with the promise of a few more hours of spare time per day, I should be able to kick this place into a higher gear and get things rolling.
Right now I’m about the only person who reads this website, and that’s kind of pitiful. But I have no one to blame but myself. Who wants to regularly check a website that doesn’t get updated? Well, that’s about to change.
So, welcome to the internet home of The Free Arrow. Pull your chest restraint down and keep your hands in the car, because we’re about to take a wild one on a cyberspace roller coaster.
Enjoy the ride.
