UT beat UGA!

Very busy day at work, today, but am excited about going home and working on the first email to go out. I'm sending it out to some Chicago residents simply because of the poetry of sending it to the place where I first conceived of www.TellOnMyEX.com.
I'll keep you posted about whether anyone goes to the site after I send the email.
Wish me luck!

Wondering Why I Created www.TellOnMyEX.com?

In case you are wondering why I'd go to the effort to create a Website (www.TellOnMyEX.com) it crossed my mind that I should tell you.

1) I dated a girl, Traci Weeks, in Chicago for about a year. She was unbelievably self-involved and uninterested in my happiness. When I finally called it quits, I told her she was the worst girlfriend I'd ever had. I then said, "I wish there was someway I could warn the world about you." As soon as I said it, I thought, "Well, duh! There is a way." Thus the original website concept was spontaneously generated. I bet you've had relationships in which you've thought similar things.

2) I am weary of Googling. When I search for something, I don't have time to search dozens, if not thousands, of sites. I just want to know what I want to know. And most of what I want to know is what others have to say about a specific person, place, or thing. Thus, the greater intent of my site.

3) I tire of political correctness. I want a website where the content is focused on truth, not on what sounds good at the time.

4) I'm hoping to grow it into something that will make enough revenue that I can do it full time and not starve. I love to hear what others have to say. Why not do it for a living?

That's it. It's that simple.
Now go to the site and tell the truth about something that's important to you.

It's Friday!

Although I feel like my website, www.TellOnMyEX.com , is ready to go, meaning I'm ready to send out a few emails to see whether people visit, EX, or pass it along, I will wait until Monday or Tuesday to do this. I just want to make sure people will read the email, and I doubt it will be read during football games this weekend. Plus, there is the natural fear that creeps out during the process of creating something, especially since I was so limited in what I could create. However, provided I start getting some traffic, version 1.0 will evolved as rapidly as I can afford.
You have fun over the weekend, while I'm busy watching football on Saturday (Go Vols!!!) and working on a house for Habitat for Humanity on Sunday.

Tell Everything

Tell Everything

No email today.

Okay, so I didn't send out an email today. Maybe first thing Monday morning. I wanted feedback concerning www.tellonmyex.com from a few people first. If you happen to run across this blog, I'd like your feedback, too.
It is built on hosted Bondware forum software, so my flexibility is limited. However, all suggestions are welcome. Even the harsh or sarcastic ones. Sarcasm is fun.

I send out an email tomorrow.

Tomorrow could be interesting. Maybe something will happen. Maybe not. But I'm going to send my first "mass" email to test to see if I get some reaction from an email advertising my site. Wish me luck.

Version 1.0 is live

So I spent some serious time figuring out how to make TellOnMyEX.com. I'll go into detail about that when I'm feeling more effusive (suffice it to say for this blog that I sat on the idea of TellOnMyEX.com, originating with my desire to tell on my ex for being a bad girlfriend, way too long). However, with a little spare time and some cool Bondware hosted software, I've made version 1.0 ready for prime time. At least until version1.1.
Now, I'm ready to send out some email and see if I can generate some buzz.

Like everyone who has never blogged before, I'm a complete novice. Fortunately, like every other disciplined blogger, I suspect soon I'll not be a novice at all.

The reason why I've begun to blog is because I'm starting a Website called
TellOnMyEX.com. I'm going to use this blog to chronicle my experience with it. I'll try to keep it short and honest.
