The past few days have involved writing several sponsorship emails. It’s no easy task succinctly stating your intentions, and hoping you get past first base with your email. Many appear to have fallen into black holes, but then again I guess these things take time. I have pitched myself to some large media companies, because I see the content I will make along the way with this thing as being quite valuable to someone. Heck, I’d go so far as to say, if I could get a loan to pull this thing off entirely on my own, I would feel confident this site would pay it off. It’s probably a bold statement, but the web is pining for unique and interesting content, and without sounding arrogant, I think I could do it. I think I could attract enough interest via the mediums I have talked about here, as I strongly believe the web is ripe for singlehanded media generation and distribution.
We have reached a stage where promoting yourself to the entire world is relatively simple: Now the barriers for entry have come down, the barriers for ‘interestingness’ have gone right up. So I will continue pursuing tech companies with the idea, and see where it goes. Either way, I’m sailing “Constellation” home no matter what, but some extra help wouldn’t go astray.
In other news, a number of people have contacted me out of the blue, and it’s a really nice feeling getting responses from people who’ve found the site. So thanks to everyone who has written, and feel free to randomly write – I like email. A lot.
