Our featured member is Steve Whalen. His page is well worth a visit. The Mad Political Scientist
I was already weird when I reached College. A 6 book a week habit had given me a strong background in Mythology and a smattering of most subjects. A double degree in Psych and Theatre turned out to be just the right background for Politics. About the time I reached 30, I started coming to terms with my psychic abilties. They don't call me "The Mad Political Scientist" for nothing.
I'm using a Digital 3000 with pentium II, 32meg ram, 32 bit color, 1.5 gig hard drive and no sound card. I got it free along with a year of free internet service from ATT for being a guinea pig in a medical experiment.
I picked the theme of "The Mad Political Scientist's Homepage," because I've been on disability for a few years and it's nearing time to go back to work. My original vision was an editorial page and forum that would showcase my political knowledge and writing skills. But the whole thing soon took on a life of it's own and quickly got out of hand. One forum has become four separate forums each with its' own theme. Reader's are starting the discussions themselves and even suggesting polling topics. Sometimes I go away for days at a time and they don't even notice.
I used to use the PC mostly for computer games and surfing. Now I spend most of my time answering e-mail, maintaining The Mad Political Scientists Homepage, and answering questions at askme.com
I prefer bulletin boards. Chat can be fun, but having time to consider a response gives you a chance to say what you really mean. (Not that a lot of my readers always take that time.) I have seen a few instances of people posting at each other in what might well have been real time.
I have been on the internet just about a year. The best tip I can give new webmasters is to visit other discussion boards and make some friends. The Bravenet forum index is ideal for this. Signing guestbooks and leaving interesting posts in other forums will draw viewers to your page more effectively than any other form of advertising, and it only costs you some time.
