hello again, it's been a long time.
if you are still inhabiting these dark pages, drop me a line and let me know who you are and what you're doing!
i'm still committed to maintaing pleonast as long as y'all are here, i just haven't really used any form of social media for several years now.
what is pleonast's purpose in 2016?
...and today we launched:
i just dropped off the remaining 137 tshirts at a goodwill donation center:
so i'm at my parents house right now and they reminded me that i still have a bunch of boxes of p3 tshirts sitting in one of their corners, so i decided to give them away for the cost of postage. i certainly misjudged the potential demand on those tshirts, which is a shame because they are really high quality and (IMHO) look pretty good.
anyway, click on the link up in the banner if you're interested!
in a few weeks i'll probably donate the rest to a homeless shelter or something similar.
so it's time for my yearly post! it's been a pretty busy year for us with a new child, another child reaching the terrible twos, new jobs, and all of the accompanying stress and joy that comes with all of the above. overall it's been a very good year, though!
how was your year, oh pleonast faithful? tell me all about it!
otherwise, have any of you found the strength to overcome the temptation of facebook and the like and returned to the bosom of a private community like pleonast where your data and privacy is taken seriously?
if you are still (or again!) an avid pleonast user, what would you like me to focus on here? i don't want to shake everything up for no reason (nobody needs a new design every year, despite what some websites think :-), but there are clearly parts here or there that i can modernize. what would you like to see here?
i don't want to become yet-another-photo-sharing-site, nor am i interested in implementing a million tiny notifications to alert you every time anyone you've ever known eats dinner, but how can i improve your pleonast experience?
many of you active users are already gold members, but if you are an active user but not a subscriber, what could i do to get you to subscribe? because i'm not selling your data or dependent on advertisements (ads are only shown here to non-subscribers), i don't need to be the next biggest site on the internet to survive, but it DOES cost me time and money to maintain pleonast, and so i'd love it if i could provide enough value to you, the user, that you felt it was worth it to support.
