I spent lots of time on here since joining. Over the last month, I stepped back and tried to find something else to spend my time on. It resulted in me creating a website. Though, now that the site is up and running I will likely spend more time on here again.

I am looking for feedback though.... Here is the website link. If you have a min. take a look and tell me what you think.

Interesting. I think it could use some more feedback from both sides, because the site is obviously left leaning and is obvious in the Bill Gates Article. Do you need help as I would be more than glad to help you out or write stuff for ya'll.

Do you make websites often, or is this your first time?

Also, have you ever made a Wikipedia page before?

Thanks for that feedback. The demographic thus far is.... 1 libertarian, 2 conservatives, 1 independent, 1 Democrat, and 1 social democrat.

I would be happy to post your content, feel free to email sensible soapbox at gmail . com with a picture, bio and article.

This is my second attempt at making a website. Though the first time was three or four years ago. I have never made a Wikipedia page before.

It looks good for a second attempt! I have a website as well, but have never been able to get it to look or "feel" how I want it to. Did you teach yourself how to design it or is there a solid source you learned from that I could utilize as well?

I kinda just messed with the layout until I found what I liked.

So, that website was done through Squarespace. I was going to build it from scratch but that takes tons of time. Spuarespace is easy to use most of the time and there support team is prompt to respond.

Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

End game is to provide quality content from a variety of perspectives.

So the end game is not to make a profit?
