Now that the 12-Inch Roommate kickstarter has wrapped and I’m halfway through getting out the rewards I’ve been trying to maintain that momentum by moving forward with my next projects. Abel Boddy is of course a number 1 priority since it’s been neglected over the last few months, but I’ve also been making more of an effort to streamline my online presence. I am aware of how pretentious this sounds, but when you consider that I have 3 blog websites, 4 Facebook profiles, 5 Twitter accounts and 1 Instagram, you may respond with: “Yeah, that’s way too much.”
At first, I was trying to figure out if I wanted to focus more on myself as an individual or on the projects I have and will create and I came to the conclusion that it should be a little of both. I mean, my sites have never really been about me as a person and I don’t want to keep launching new websites for every single idea that comes to mind. So, I folded my Facebook stuff down to one profile with 2 pages and stopped the use of 3 of the Twitter accounts. I’m thinking now that 12-Inch is done and I don’t really plan on doing too much NSFW work at this point, I will phase out the Meatcute blog. The Abel Boddy site won’t go anywhere, but will, in time, get re-designed. And my portfolio site will either become the front page that everything eventually gets connected to or will be a page that connects to a umbrella Tumblr page or something.
In the end, I want something that’s all-encompassing but contained, easy to maintain and, most importantly, something that I will only have to provide one URL if someone inquires at a cocktail party or if I’m networking.
