Sometime in October 2012 a dream was born. An idea that posting a few rambling rural themed ‘articles’ on the internet would garner enough online support and subsequent traffic that Google/Yahoo/Facebook/Pornhub would feel compelled to buy my site and allow me to retire to a lifetime of helicopter lessons and Monopoly. Of course that didn’t happen.
Undeterred I tried again almost exactly a year ago today. With the launch of ‘Lunatic Soop’ I (and my co-editor in Oz, Phil Eggleton) tried to re-invent the beer review blog. It didn’t work either to be honest. On further research it seemed the ‘worrying my Sheep’ reader didn’t really care about beer that much and the traditional beer consumer didnt really ‘get’ the style of the beer reviews.
So, what should the next logical step be? probably shut the lot down and leave blogging to people who have a vague understanding of their target audience and a plan to grow said audience. That is the sensible next step.
I am not sensible.
So instead I am merging ‘Worrying my Sheep’ and ‘Lunatic Soop’. Beer reviews and indeed venue reviews will sit in a category on the newly created domain – worryingmysheep.com and a host of magically talented writers, photographers and dreamers will fill the other parts of the site with pure genius. Eventually Google/Yahoo/Facebook/Pornhub will be force to buy the domain and the dream will be realised. Sadly the helicopter lessons might have to be sacrificed due to colour blindness but whatevs innit.
Read the now dual blog, make suggestions, leave feedback, ask requests and most of all ask your friends, lovers and neighbours to visit with unprecedented frequency to ensure the dream comes true more quickly.
