I’ll be honest, I’ve been a bit reticent about opening up registration on this site. I’m not really sure why.
Am I afraid that someone might swoop in and steal my intellectual property? Not likely. I haven’t posted many, if any, game details yet.
Is it because I’m afraid of the criticism? Well, no one likes criticism, and I’m no exception to that. But I do appreciate constructive feedback, and if I keep the site sealed off then I’ll never get any feedback.
Am I worried that opening the site up is a commitment to finish what I’ve started? Maybe. But having support and encouragement from a community following my progress might help the project come to fruition.
Whatever the reason for my hesitation, today I decided it was time to let it go. The doors are officially open on Hot Buttered Awesome. I don’t expect much, if any, traffic, but I feel like opening it up is sort of a moral victory. Hooray for me! 😛
