So... busy, somewhat (as in, a productive busy of sorts... as opposed to simply having all my time sucked away by nothing). :) Designed a flyer for NFG, added some features to the staff-side of things, added table of contents information, and quotes from issue 1 and issue 2. Worked on some back-end stuff with my suggestion board on rockmage.com, will slowly port that out to other sites. Maybe I can get something going in java to compete with phpbb. There certainly needs to be SOME other option. :) Also did some color/layout tweaks on rockmage.com, and I think it's starting to get the right feel.
Hmm. I went out, got 20 color copies of the flyer made, made (well, 21 I guess... er no, 22 counting one this morning) and put up... 1 in san francisco in the employee's room of Peet's Coffee, then 9 up in various stores up and down a prominent avenue near my house. (copy shops, coffee shops (employee rooms, bathrooms, out front), a health spa, a game shop, and... not sure where else, really))
I went out with a copy of issue 1 and issue 2, and had the guy at the counter of the spa buy issue 1 off of me while I was putting up the flyer. He said his girlfriend did poetry and fiction and whatnot, and he wanted to send it to her. I gave him a copy of issue 2 also (because it looks and feels better), so who knows.
Hopefully we'll see some boost in subscriptions or orders from that.
Tomorrow I poster some shops in san francisco on my lunch break. :)
tomorrow night, midnight-ish, begins some advertising on megatokyo.com -- so we're hoping to see at least three year-long subscriptions bought out of that. More means a profit (I spent $45, I think). If we get twenty, I'll be ecstatic. I'm expecting on the order of 30,000 hits. Could be 200,000. Could be none. Who knows? The second through the fourth. :crosses fingers:
