Here we go here we go testing 123. Oh yeah!
So it’s been a while since I’ve posted an entry. This is due to a few reasons…
- I sort of got annoyed with having to blog and post.
- I got annoyed with the whole “tech” scene and the “tech blogging” scene.
- I got REAL busy.
- … then (as if on cue) my laptop hard drive died and I lost 80gb worth of work, emails, files, financial files, music production files, music & more.
(ps: do not try to tell me how to prevent this in the future, believe it or not – it doesn’t help)
Things are back on track now though and I have also been doign work with an Advertising Agency and it’s really interesting stuff. There’s something fulfilling about harnessing creativity and getting paid for it.
The calm after the storm
So now things are starting to calm down a bit more I have to finish off a bunch of client work and then I will be venturing into the slightly unknown: creating my own sites, ideas & monetising them. Ideally I would like an easy to maintain supplemental income on the side whoile being able to focus on client work 9-5. I have a whole bunch of new ideas for websites and I will be launching them on this blog soon. So stay tuned. Eventually I want to work towards a project that I will create when I am more relaxed
I’m “semi” glad to see Web 2.0 losting its buzz
Web2.0 served it’s purpose to excite the buzz surrounding the web but now it’s petered off. I’m glad about this because people need to focus on real things, not fuzz & fluff hot air ideas that will get you nowhere (case in point: too many to mention).
But truly this point needs a whole post to elaborate completely on the whole situation.
So why would you want to come back here?
Writing in my style is the idea. I just want to make it short, punchy & do stuff a little more creative around here. Plus in the past I focused on absolute
shit boring things. Let’s keep it succinct & interesting. You don’t really have to come back but in the future I hope to be writing stuff that will make you come back!
And also in the news!
- I got my first iPod – 30gb video (very nice)
- I’ve been working on a quad g5 (which has just been superceeded, but even still, it rocks)
- I got a pocket watch!(next on the list: smoking jacket & pipe)
- I got a lava lamp (life almost seems complete now)
- I got a new digi cam (flickr here I come)
- I’m getting CDJ’s. (i think i’ll post mixes up on here? who knows!)
- I got some Dreamhost hosting (cheap, huge, fast, reliable – hell what more could you want. want to sign up? use the promo code blaze50 when signing up and it’ll get you $50 off – sweet!)
- I got my first wireless mouse ($15! – late bloomer)
- I still have the same hot girlfriend! (no she hasn’t left me yet! bonus! :p)
Anyway enough of the personal stuff…
Have a good day & thanks for all the fish.
I am a designer. I believe i was born to be creative and I live to create. Here at wordpress.com though, I can actually forget about playing with that theme or tweaking this or that, because… I cant! This gives me more of a chance to focus on actually sitting down and writing out my thoughts. I'm still quite new to blogging but this is my playground and I love it.
Also another thing to keep in mind is the admins here keep everything running smoothly 99% of the time so I don't even have to administrate anything or worry about anything. Not to mention the fact they are really understanding here, they have a really good service, and someday they will let us put some ads on here!
This is just a quick outburst about why I am enjoying my time here and I highly reccomend it.
