The second anniversary of the Not so bad Astro web site has just passed. I'm pleased that the site has grown substantial local and worldwide audiences with lots of new content:
The site combines a personal journal and social media driven outreach, with both unique Creative Commons licensed written content and eye candy images. Outreach leverages multiple social media outlets (Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Cloudy Nights, Quara) without being dependent on any proprietary platform. The custom site delivers a high quality user experience and image rich content with exceptionally high performance.
The combination of a custom site and social media new content notification has worked well to build a site with sustained interest. With AWS hosting and standards based tools, direct costs of the website are only about $50 a year. There is no need for distractions like advertising.
