Question for the brain trust.

If I were to have a personal website, what would you want me to have on it?

Isn't that a nice, open-ended question?

blog about events and experiences.
Sort of like what Jefferson does....but in a Boymeat sort of way.

I don't really foresee me doing another blog beyond my LJ.
May. 16th, 2007 04:18 pm (UTC)
You can link you LJ to your web page silly. :P
May. 16th, 2007 04:21 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's in the works. But the formatting and content will probably remain the same.
May. 16th, 2007 04:21 pm (UTC)
Well why do you want a personal website?
Unless you are turning Pro or sharing a part of your life what is the appeal?
May. 16th, 2007 04:29 pm (UTC)
Why not?

Well I guess since you present nationally it makes sense.

I'm just curious as to what the impulse is to do it.
The why now.
I mean obviously you are not building it. All due respect.

I have successfully avoided them until now.

Yeah, I don't see anything like that appearing on website. Nope.

Oops pictures...either real ones or manufactured.

Video clips and diagrams of yourself using floggers, canes, and the like. You complain about experienced people who are still doing it wrong. Show us how to do it properly, for the record.

Aieee!!! Now, I don't say people are going it wrong. I just teach my own personal style. (you're gonna get me in trouble!!!)
May. 16th, 2007 04:34 pm (UTC)
Sorry. Forgot. You don't say anyone in particular is doing it wrong (yes, they are), and you don't say your way is the right way (yes, it is).

I can't really answer that question without knowing what you need the website for - What would be your purpose for creating the website ? (I'm sitting here racking my brain, and I can't figure out why you would want or need one)

May. 16th, 2007 05:34 pm (UTC)
I agree with lots of others - it depends on what the point is of having a site in the first place.

If it's as a nationally-known presenter? Then I'd include a list of the classes you currently teach (with description of each and your needs - is it a two hour class? Do you need a large room, suspension frame, etc.), how to contact you about teaching, and what your requirements are to travel somewhere (pay for airfare, pay for hotel, etc.)

You could put your scene travel schedule on it - where you're going to be and when and what you're teaching or doing there.

Perhaps a section on resources you recommend for scene skills and knowledge - books, websites, groups.

Personally, I feel pretty satisfied with what I get from reading your LJ.

Me too -
the only thing you don't have that I would want is a live feed
...and perhaps an aquarium cam
You could have lots of cams

- Boymeat shower cam
- Boymeat fish cam...
- Boymeat bed cam...

Or you could have just one cam and turn it on the fish when you're not there

Well the first question is, simply, do you need one? "Just because you can doesnt mean you should" is an important lesson in branding.

If it were my site (something I'm sorta working on at the moment), I would make sure there is:

1) a resources page. You have more than above average knowledge and resources available to you. Being able to share them is a great thing.

2) an events page. Gotta tell us what's coming up throughout the country/world, especially those you are going to be at.

3) a boymeat "pic(k) of the day." Lets you show off something you want to. I'm not sure if its necessary for verification for 2257 applies to personal websites, so try to keep it cleaner until you know for sure. Of course knowing you, half of them will be feet at first hehehe

4) a contact page. you can do a form or go through email (or both). I like a form because it can prevent your email from overflowing. but not necessary depending on where your mail server is.

5) A section dedicated to your notes from classes/teaching styles. this might be a bit much, but short video clip examples of techniques.

6) An advice section? Let people ask you questions and have them answered on the website

I suppose you could have an animation that says "please to meet you" and then have the "m" in meet transform into a "B" by flipping on its side and an "F" by standing straight up.

A page about me! And the rest of your leather family and friends...
May. 16th, 2007 07:59 pm (UTC)
You said, "brain trust" and I'm obviously not a member. :) Then I thought, "what the hell?"

My initial response was, "porn." Then I thought about it, porn is easy. Porn is everywhere. It's almost over done. (I said almost.)

Then I thought, "something interesting" but that's defined by each individual.

Isn't the real question, "what do you want to put on it?"
May. 16th, 2007 08:11 pm (UTC)
What Lolita Said!
Throw in where you are and what you'll be doing Leather event wise and a page dedicated to feet (and your boots) and I'd check that out! (frequently)

What ever you do, don't just have an opening page like me... that gets annoying afer a while...

Are you going with Boymeat dot net? (Or com or any of the others?)
May. 16th, 2007 09:43 pm (UTC)
Sexy pictures! :D
May. 16th, 2007 09:46 pm (UTC)
Erm, I suppose I should clarify that those would be sexy pictures of YOU.. not random pr0n.
May. 16th, 2007 10:29 pm (UTC)
just a thought
What about a web comic? It can be about anything, an original plot or your adventures at events and things. It doesn't even have to be detailed, just stick figures with cut-outs of peoples heads or something.
May. 16th, 2007 11:35 pm (UTC)
A picture of me.

I personally would love to see your classes in text form concentrating of course on the things that you dont physically usually show people. A question and answer forum might keep you busier than you ever anticipated but I think would also be a nice touch. How about the situations you see that make you cringe and things you saw in play situations that you think are noteworthy *in a good way*

On the whole as others have said it really depends on what you want up there.

This site is fine. Perhaps a few extra features, like a bigger blogroll.

A calendar of your appearances.

Unfortunately, someone's already bought boymeat.com. How about "boymeat.us?"

Wordpress is good because it can function as a small content management system. In other words, you can add pages. And I see you still have your Blogger account. I don't think you should move from here.
May. 17th, 2007 02:44 pm (UTC)
BTW I sent you some email awhile ago - can you check your Spam folder?
