(Or “Some Of The Web Sites I Abandoned Before I Abandoned This One”)
This is my newest albatross. I’m trying to expand my writing about my hobbies (as opposed to my writing about being a miserable bastard, which I do here) a bit, widening it from the card site. I’d also like to use this site to sell off some of my belongings, as I have too many, and I ain’t gettin’ any younger. We’ll see how I do on all of these goals. So far, it’s been an awkward transition, as it’s hard to not just default to established legacy audiences (which is why so much of my other writing gets wasted on Facebook).
I write about trading cards here. It’s occasionally more riveting than it sounds. I’ve actually had a lot of fun with this site since I opened it in 2010.
I’ve retired this site, which was my grand albatross between September 2000 and January 2014. Before that, it existed as “scott crawford’s web.o.fucking.rama” (a swell name, but not quite as much of an eye-grabber), so we’re talking about something like 17 years of history, though a lot of the early shit is not currently online. I’ve done a lot of different things with it, but its time had come. I am no longer updating it, and after a few years of leaving it up as a cautionary tale, I’ve pulled down what was there (including the WordPress install that served as its infrastructure). I am slowly adding the best parts of My Big, Black Cock to this site, but truth be told, a lot of what was there was as ephemeral as it gets. Offer me a fuckton of money and I may sell you the domain.
