Hello world, it’s good to be back!
Owning your own name as a domain is something that I recommend everyone do if possible. This site actually goes way back, but unfortunately the history has been tumultuous.
I want to say I first started my blog back in 2012 and the roller coaster ride has been insane!
First just like every webmaster I got hit by Google’s Penguin update when it first rolled out (yes I’m that old) and then the site just kind of sat idle for a while as I was busy with other projects and my clients.
A couple of years later my web hosting provider (which shall remain nameless) experienced a “catastrophic failure” which completely deleted all of my content offline! I didn’t even know this was possible where even if you’re backing up your website through your web hosting company that you could still lose everything (thus get an external drive people).
Eventually I just got really busy and didn’t realize my domain name had lapsed since the site had crashed (I literally own like hundreds of domains) and then someone actually bought it and held it for a few years. Then yesterday I just did a random GoDaddy search and saw it was available to pick up so I snapped it up and here we are!
At this point I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to blog as I’m quite busy with a number of projects. I initially started this blog way back when to make a name for myself and to pick up clients, but that was a long time ago and things are much different now.
However I can’t really leave a blog with my name on it idle, so I’ll do my best to try to update with content when I can.
