I’m Back!

Hey Everyone,

     I’m sorry for being gone for so long. I know I only have one reader, but I want to start writing again just for you. I know who you are too. Anyways I’m back and ready to go again. I will be posting my first story on monday. See yA then. Actually I’ll see you tomorrow at church, but thats besides the point, kinda. 

Gotta Go,

A new theme

Hey Everyone,

    I’m sorry for not being around recently. I was on a camping trip with my youth group. I am back now though. I was also not paying very much attention to the blog before the camping trip, but I am back on a gaming freeze. I have a great new idea for the blog. I want to spend as much time as possible getting the news out about the new blog concept. 

    Here’s what it will be. Twitter has been a big part of my life recently. I have been using twitter a lot. I don’t even have that many followers. (only 3 lol) But, the blog is going to be a blog written by me “@benwillis” (my twitter name) and all of my followers on twitter. You can continue to just come on the blog as normal, but I will be inviting my twitter followers to post on the blog. This should help get more post on the blog, and get me more followers on twitter.

    Twitter is such a fun thing to use, and I want it to be part of the blog. I also am looking for something to set us apart from all the other tech blogs. If I just post and post about normals tech things that everyone else does, I will never get an audience. I have to create a sense of community. I have to have something that people look at and say, Wow why has no one thought of that.

    Once again I would like to say that I will not be kicking anyone off the blog or anything like that. I will just be inviting more people from twitter. 

    I will be going to walmart to pick up my iPod touch tomorrow, hopefully. I will do a full post about that after I get it all set up.

    I have been gone for a few days with no access to a computer, but I don’t think anything major happened in the tech world that I missed. I have read up on all the rumors on Mac Rumors, and I think the only thing big that happened was Microsoft gave the lets just be friends talk to Yahoo. Ok, I’m going to go spread the word on twitter. 

Gotta Go,

Ben Willis

Coming Soon

Hey Everyone,
Very sorry for no recent post. This post will not be long. I had a very busy weekend and only spent about 15 minutes on the computer all weekend. Yesterday I caught everything up on my sisters blog. Today I want to catch up on this blog. I really spent too much time playing games yesterday. I swear to not play games today. I have too much work to do for both blogs. I probably played Urban Terror for 4 hours yesterday. That game is too addicting and I won’t be playing it for a while. I really must go, but I promise to post later today after school.

Gotta Go,

Ben Willis

Getting the word out

Hey Everyone,

         Sorry I haven’t been around for awhile. I had family in town, and didn’t get a chance to even check my e-mail over the weekend. Since I haven’t been on my computer for two days, I haven’t been able to advertise geekhangout. Actually I don’t think anyone will actually read this until I do some advertising. If you have any suggestions of places where I can post an ad, or just inform a community of our blog for free, please leave a comment. Also tell anyone who is interested about the blog. Thanks!

My favorite podcast is geekbrief tv. The host of geekbrief and her producer/husband are selling all their stuff, buying a R.V., and taking a year long road trip. They are calling it the BIG trip. I have put a big trip badge in the sidebar to show my support for the big trip. You should definitely check out their podcast.

Gotta Go, 

Ben Willis

 

geekhangout is born

Hey Everyone, Welcome to geekhangout. First off I would like to tell you why I started this blog. I have tried to start a few blogs in the past and they have never gone anywhere. I never got any readers, and eventually I just gave it up. Ever since blogging has taken off there have just been too many blogs to read. When you make a blog, especially about technology, there are just too many other blogs exactly like it. I wanted to be able to write about stuff I love, and have people read it. Geekhangout will make it possible for you to submit your articles about geeky stuff, and read the articles that other people have written. If all the people who have tried and failed to make blogs in the past get on board. We can all have our work read. If you want to post something on geekhangout just e-mail your work to geekhangoutemail@gmail.com. I will try to post it in it’s original form, but some editing may be necessary. For instance, I don’t want any profanity or slamming of other writers. Thanks for reading this.geekhangout,ben willis
