I just found Word Press yesterday, and I gotta admit, I love it. But,, I'm seeing a potential here that i think may be being completely overlooked.
Now, honestly, I've purposely avoided "blogs" since their inception years ago. And, as the web filled up with this kids drug experiences ot that kids broken hearts, or even this other kids music collection, i avoided them even more.. It got to where blogs were like opinions, everyone had one and in fact, most blogs were nothing more than a whine sheet.
I want to do something different.
The world has never been shaped by direct opinion. It's been shape by peoples imaginations after experiencing a story. An Example. No one really gave a rat about the american indian wars until a little movie called soldier blue came out, then whadda ya know.. Everyone gets a concience.
Books and novels are another place thats also changed thw world. Rilke, Hemingway, Adams, Rand, tons of people who simply created characters whos lives embodied that writers opinions.
Now we have a modern age. we have the web. Paper and pen will still be there, but you can publish on the web and reach a billion people, litterally, overnight.
With it's Customizable themes, it's ease of installation and use (hey, if "I" can do it....) it's a perfect platform for on line novelization and pblishing. But it's missing one thing..
What if i want to jointly create a piece of work with another writer?? Whether it's a compendium of stories or even one story split between two or more authors.. Here i sit with the absolute, most wonderfully designed piece of authoiring software in the entire world (believe me, i've been looking for sixteen hours a day for over a week) and i cant co author.
IS there a pluggin that exists that allows more than one person to author a blog?? Could one be made? I understand file locking issues and cvs but even a crude checkout system is prefferable to nothing..
Thanks for this incredible piece of software.. Hope to hear soon..
