One Year Later

A full year has passed now without any meaningful activity on Rogue-Penguin.  I think about the website a lot but I haven’t actually been all that productive in a blogging/internet presence sense.  While there have been stretches of time I’ve neglected R-P while focusing on other websites, this time was different.  Apart from my writing — which hasn’t totally gone without my attention — I just haven’t been producing written pieces to publish.  I could use the website to talk about my fan fiction, but I feel I don’t have the audience to support it and, really, much to say beyond “Hey, look here, new textual poaching!”

So, once again, I’m in the situation where I don’t know what the purpose of Rogue-Penguin actually IS anymore.  There is no comic. There are no other members of R-P anymore besides myself.  Maybe it’s time the whole thing gets retired and redirected to my Google+ account.  It certainly would be cheaper.  The internet is heading away from standalone websites now, as strange as it  sounds since that’s where we (roughly) started back in the AOL days.

I also have a Tumblr page as well, which was neglected for a long time and now I’m starting to use a tiny bit more.  Also a Twitter account which… I’ll be honest, I just don’t have an interest in.  I like long format articles and detailed conversations and Twitter is anathema to that.   I have Facebook too (which this will cross-post to) but I mostly have that for the sake of other people. Family, friends, distant acquaintances, and so on.

I’ll have to think about this more.  Until I have a real multimedia project to share, it just doesn’t make sense to invest in all this infrastructure.  And right now, I’m sorry to say, I just don’t.  Never-Forever remains in my future, but it’s not happening right now.

And maybe that’s what matters.

In the real world you'll find him examining computer controls at large companies. These two worlds rarely get to intersect.
