Episode 69: Goodbye 2014


It's been quite a year, hasn't it?  2014 was filled with growing pains while transitioning to something different.  Thomas moved to a small town that he is still not familiar with and is effectively out of his comfort zone.

Along the way, he has met some interesting people.

In much the same way, the rest of the world has experienced some growing pains as well.  Whether it's media coverage of any given topic without proper disclosure of potential conflicts of interest, controversial events that spiraled out of control, or the death of well known individuals, we all know that things will never be the same.

But that's where opportunity for growth comes from.  It's that transitionary period where things aren't quite the same and we have to adapt to new challenges.  Thomas has a few goals in mind for next year.

  1. Convert all PDF magazines into HTML pages for easier viewing by March.  Having new issues in HTML with ads inserted while allowing subscribers to view new ones without ads while having first dibs (and exclusive audio and video content embedded).
  2. Recruit more people for the podcast.  At least two more people to be precise.
  3. Generate $600 from the website, whether it be from crowdfunding for hosting costs and paying contributors or other avenues.  A one off will be done before utilizing Patreon.

If the third goal isn't met by December 31, 2015, the website will be discontinued.  The *Nixed Report has existed since 2006, and it's time to take things to the next level.
