Somewhere Only We Know

Postby admin » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:04 am

Consider this entry more of thinking out loud than some actual history.

I spend a ton of time on the Internet. Mostly because of my job, and the more I know about how people use the web, the more I make. Mata knows what I'm talking about.

Anyways - From this forced function of life, it gets old real quick about the latest technology or social site on the rise (http://pinterest.com/). But in order to pay the bills, I have to know about this stuff.

FactPile and FactPileTopia offer an escape from all of that. On these two sites, I forget all the "rules" that I have to abide by for clients, and do whatever I want on these two sites. I often consider trying to "grow" the audience through artificial means. More traffic means more eyeballs and in advertising vernacular, page impressions. And that means more cash in my pocket.

But, the one thing that holds me back each time is that I know what we have here on Topia and "The Mainland" is real. Sure, we have stragglers here and there, get the occasional interested party that arrives, takes notice for a few posts, and then moves on.

This used to really bother me, but from having to artificially inflate big name brands and their online egos, it's made me realize that only certain kinds of people have what it takes to exist here.

And that my friends, is something that cannot be bought.

WOOT!

Joyous day. An insight into Amin's mind followed by a reply from the Sapster? Good omens.

BTW, I love that quote Admin slapped on the bottom. Very fitting to his thoughts there.
