So we decided to build a website to document our life @ LetTheBossKnow.com

This is our first "advertising" that weve done for the site, so let us know what you think! Send us an email, sign up for the forums, help us build our own grid!

Thanks

I think it would help if it was clearer what your aims are and the aims of your forum

Thanks for the input!

Do you feel the term "Forget off the grid... build your own grid" doesnt clearly state our intentions with the blog and forums?

We are building an electric grid, NiFe batterys, you can attach wind, solar, anything to them. We are building our own grid, Food, Shelter, Transportation, Energy, its everything you need to completely build your own grid.

Your letting your boss know that you dont need them anymore. With everything that we are presenting to people, they could save up, buy everything they needed, and kiss their job goodbye forever. Plus the website name is very easy to remember and already gets a lot of hits from search engines

If you are a human, then you are our target demographic, so we want to reach you! Its just me and one other person, trying to do all this labor to build our life, and now were throwing a website on top of all that... we will make it more "global friendly" when we can.

Ok then I would suggest you need to find a driver . Like Paul uses his Pod casts or Jack his radio thingy . Starting a forum is very hard to get momentum going . Maybe build up the blog invite comments , then when you have lots of people commenting go for the forum type project .
At the moment if you look at the forum its pretty empty , people wont join if they see there are not many folks there . Its a bit chicken and egg as there are lots of other fora out there . You have to offer something different . Why should I post there when I could post here ? after all you post here .

We have a TON of projects that weve done over the years, almost all of them are decently documented with pictures. We plan to post these projects in the blogs and have people come talk about them in the forums. I want to keep our projects in an area that is not cluttered with everyones "comments" on them. That way when someone needs the information its easy to find.

Once people register I will start talking with them in the forums until it gets more of a following. I do agree that we need more people on the site, but keep in mind that the post here on permies was our very first ever bit of advertising that we have done on the site. So your seeing the site in its very very begening stages.

I apologize if its unclear how to register, you would want to click on the link at the top of the page, right below the websites logo LetTheBossKnow, it says "register" and that is where you would want to register.

Thanks though for your input Big AL, I will try and make it more clear on how to register.
