Trying To Get A New Forum Going

Like every good webmaster knows, community is one of the best ways to generate traffic - it also provides a lot of useful information too.

And yes, there is a lot of junk as well. Regardless, a good, informative, well-moderated forum can provide a lot of tips, tricks, and just plain infotainment.

Well, we are starting up a forum at Walkin' Willie's Comix

Having said all the above, how in the heck are we gonna get folks to come there and provide input. Simple - we are going to do it the old fashioned way - we bribe them!

Simply put, we are going to have two sweepstakes. The first one will be for folks to come up with forum topics - or sub-forums if you will.

The second sweepstakes is for the best comic blog entry - your chance to wax eloquently - and hopefully passionately - about something comic book related.

But for "bribes" - um, sweepstakes - to work, we have to come up with some decent prizes. That will be my task and so I will go to the warehouse tomorrow morning and see what comic book baubles I have that would entice someone to write like freakin' Shakespeare.

So get your thinkin' caps on - we will be back tomorrow with the details for the first sweepstakes. This oughta be fun....
