2018 Projects have been revised several times however; no clear picture could be published until now. The plan took several unexpected curves in 8 months, let us see what happened.
Where did you think Halieus Media 2018 Projects were headed?
Pretty simple answer; continue to write researched articles. With that were:
- Saving enough money to purchase a WordPress package. This goal gives the opportunity to monitize.
- Additional tools to streamline publishing only available via JetPack – paid version.
- Build follower/subscriber base.
- Eventually purchase hardware.
- Keep the information free to the public.
- Find research collaborators to ease the burden of finding reliable sources.
How did you do with those 2018 Projects to date?
At the end of April upon the recommendation of Roy Potter, jn14 reviewed UniRock’s video content and livestream. The projects he and his RockaSquad researchers were working on meshed with projects Halieus Media had previously published about on our free WordPress platform. That content is still available there and also was transferred here to our domian.
In May, Uni gave a brief livestreaming tutorial for those who were interested. Halieus Media had no intention of doing original video content but curiosity gets the best of us. The tiny toy tablet was put to the test, over and over again, at which time other companion software was also tested. The learning or re-learning curve was straight up.

Independent – it’s a position, not a party.
Eventually it was determined the tiny toy tablet just didn’t have enough juice to livestream. The alternative was to publish produced videos and so we did. The first obsticle to overcome was actually speaking; voice went out within 10 minutes. The first trial videos on Twitch were, awefull. That’s a fact.
Through all the upheaval Halieus Media struggled to produce content consistently. Our hope is by doing this major upgrade during the summer, the way forward will smooth out as we head into the mid-term elections.
What 2018 Project goals were met?
- halieusmedia.com and the necessary plugins to get started were purchased,
- enabling better comment moderation
- and monitization.
- A refurbished laptop was purchased, delivery on Thursday.
- Research collaborators were found.
Will you meet the other two goals?
Only time and a massive amount of work for the remaining 4 months of 2018 will tell. Don’t bet against halieusmedia, though.
To that end, halieusmedia promised content would remain free to the public. Patreon account went live on Saturday, last. Due to twitter shadowbanning us for the last 5 months, we have tried gab.ai and found it wanting. Halieus Media opened a mumblit.com account over the weekend. We will see if the same amount of effort, pays off.
Why did you post all that debt? Its Paid, isn’t it?
Why of course it is! The reason halieusmedia chose to make financial information public is due to rumors flying all over the interwebs. This one gets paid by Soros, that one gets paid by a Conservative think tank. Those guys get paid by a government earmark to the tune of $160mil – An House Res. which died in committee in 2012. The alleged NDAA revision remains, unfunded.
Halieus Media at it’s core is a one and a half person operation, plus the Shepherd. The One person is jn14; the woman you hear in the videos. Please don’t ask about the half-person; it is enough to know the half-person and the One person, aka jn14 have been in negotiations regarding a podcast for six years. And counting…
Once the laptop comes off the books as being paid back to jn14, the monthly commitment drops to $67.48 without factoring the annual one-time payments or any other hardware upgrades like a boom mike, external hard drive, whatever.
Can we help?
Lovely of you to ask! First, foremost and always; if you like our content, smash that Like button! Following on from that; subscribe or follow on the platform you find our content.
Beyond that, there are two categories of skills we need to grow:
|Associated Skills||Subscribers & Patrons|
Writers – write as frequently or infrequently as you like. Minimum 1 article per month.
Tip Jar via Patreon
$2 per month just cause you like our content.
$7 per month buys us a lunch, after we clear expenses. You will have access to annual reports.
$23 per month offsets our actual expenses to date. This level is limited to 5 Patrons at this time. You will have the option to receive quarterly or annual reports.
Sponsorship: the good old fashioned ad but not from a click-bait farm. We hope to structure a per article rate and a monthly rate. No more than 3 ads per single article or video.
Video content will not be interrupted!
Whew! Truthfully, jn14 never thought the simple, free wordpress site would turn into all this. All summer goals and plans have gone by the wayside, with few exceptions. It’s ok though, life has such interesting twists and turns. Join us for the ride!
