The Internet is full of media these days to report on everything ten times over and it makes it almost redundant for me to even try to be a news outlet. Mostly I believe I am going to just post what seems interesting and important enough to me and it may not even have anything to do with current events.
I feel like it might be a better idea to try to shill my website instead of use social media completely to get my ideas out there. I also believe it may be the best alternative to any and all media outlets as far as interaction with other people. I feel like everybody should have their own web space on the Internet where ultimately they have control over what is or isn’t acceptable to post. In fact, I would almost go as far as everybody should host their own web space from their own web server from their own homes.
Though many, if not most, standard Internet access providers frown upon their customers hosting web servers if they haven’t specifically opted for web hosting type service. Also most providers these days don’t offer Internet speeds that make it reasonable to host a web server from home. Probably a close alternative is finding a data center nearby, build and setup your server, and take your server to the data center to host your website.
However, the real issue with websites these days is that most people don’t really go to them except through search engines or social media posts. If you want to have clicks, you do likely need to do some serious marketing.
