I Got Yer New Media Empire Right Here, Pumpkin

It is a typical pattern: a small company gets noticed, gets big, wants to be bigger, tries to get bigger quickly and falls on its face. 1/3 the traffic, 3 times the laughs.

I realize there is a fine line between beating the competition to the market, and coming up with quality sites, but sometimes it is good to let others go ahead of you in launching specialty blogs so you can watch them stumble and not do what they do.

That’s our plan anyway.
