Once more unto the breach

Still bouncing around the Internet, trying to find a good platform for a stand-up comedy web site. My first effort was a hosted site at GoDaddy using Serif’s WebPlus but I ran into WSYWIG problems with audio and video.  On to Weebly but I ran into limitations with sizing photos correctly. The blog wasn’t industrial strength. The blog doesn’t have a blogroll built into it unless you count Delicious but you can’t break it down into categories.

I liked the ability to bypass GoDaddy’s ads by rerouting the DNS to Weebly. You can do that for free on Weebly but it costs extra at WordPress. You can’t upload audio to WordPress without paying extra as with Weebly. WordPress has a nice feature integrated in that you can tweet your blog posts. Weebly allows you to use Google AdSense but the day I make any money using Google AdSense is the day I’m on David Letterman (insert your own joke here, heh, heh).

Three Richmond stand-up comedians who are using WordPress to host their web sites: Blake Midgette, Jared Cullum and Tim Wood. Molly Buckley of the improv group Made of Bees uses WordPress and she’s a social media goddess.  Three comedian tweeps that have rockin’ web sites: Mandy Stadtmiller, Paul Mercurio and Joe Klocek but they probably have the money to pay someone to do it for them.

On my list of things to do: install some widgets and customize the header.

In other news, it looks like I’ll be hitting 200 followers on Twitter. To paraphrase the old blues song, if it weren’t for affiliate marketeers, SEO gurus and MLMers, I wouldn’t have any followers at all.

Let’s have a moment of silence for GeoCities, where I got my start building web sites.
