Yesterday I had a classic rant about our community. It came off as finger pointing at the CCABC. Well, I am not so KAREN that I am not willing to look in the mirror. Oh, not me personally, I cant handle that. But as Woody Boater.
Woody Boater is a train wreck. There I said it. So you don’t have to. The site is so out of date, its becoming stale. How many shots of the Railway can one stand? How many one of shots of boats do I really need to post? And even though we have not missed even one post in around 15 years. Who really gives a ship about toilet seats?
So, I am probing, prodding and digging. That’s what is going on. I am am trying to find a sweet spot, a place that keeps our community current, yet focused on its deep history. Are clubs dead? Yes.. Facebook dead? YES! It’s all a train wreck. BUT!!!!!!!
We are a community, we all are friends, even though we may want to rip each others heart out. We are friends. We do care. We do oddly share common values and deep down, are good people. We are. And so that is worth trying to help, to help each other. Screw “Platforms” And different trends. How do we stay connected in a universe of being over connected? How can we help each other without to many fingers in the pot? I am 100% focused on this. And I don’t know. I am as confused as many others. All I can seem to do is flail about and do stories on what’s in front of me. And over the past two years, thats been my little strange universe. My Mirror. And it’s ugly.
Over the next few months, I am rethinking all of this. Not walking away.. Sorry, you won’t be that lucky. But try new things and see what sticks and what stinks. So please be patient, speak up, and be part of the train wreck.
