Okay, I’m not going to lie to you. This blog makes me little money. About five years ago, I started this blog, thinking that I might make some money off this. It has, but in all honesty, not the way that I intended.
The truth is I wanted to create a blog that would be a cross between my two favorite things: Christianity and technology. I wasn’t certain whether or not anyone had really done that, but I thought I was going to do it with a very interesting intersection.
Tech blogging started getting big at the beginning of the last decade. It is not surprising since the beginning of the mobile phone revolution as well as the rise of other smartphone technology that we literally can’t live without today. This market for tech blogging has been waning. I see most opportunities for tech and gadget review bloggers being volunteer with no pay.
The biggest problem that I have with blogging is that it is a very temporal career. A single post might be old news after a few hours, and will be almost completely obsolete after a year. I think the whole point of doing anything in life is so it will last, but when you do blogging, your news just won’t last, man. In fact, I had a problem a while ago where I thought I had lost my entire blog. It was a server problem, and a good friend of mine helped me to recover the lost info. I still haven’t restored a few years worth of blog posts, and I’m guessing that not a lot of you noticed.
Over the years, this blog has sort of become a typical tech blog, where I just write about stuff that I can review, not to mention anything that I can Source from other tech blogs. There is nothing wrong with that, the problem is that it is stagnant work, and I am wanting to do more.
I believe that there is a lot that I can do for the world of tech. I’ve devoted the past seven years of my life following it closely, and I have a lot of knowledge to impart. However, I want to do more than just share knowledge, as I truly want to give wisdom.
I am moving into tech consulting now. I will be meeting with tech companies, and I want to share with them where I believe that technology is going. I suppose that is a brief mission statement of what I intend to do.
So what will this mean for this blog? The stories that you will see will have a more timeless quality. I’m not going to simply write about a device without a detailed analysis of its future, and the future of devices like it.
I believe that technology can help us, the problem is that it can’t do it completely. I’m not going to talk about what really can, but technology plays a big role in helping humanity. There are things that you can do with it that couldn’t be done years ago, but it still is not enough.
I’m looking to get more followers on Twitter and Facebook. I would like your help for that if you haven’t followed me there.
Here’s some more news. I have another book coming out this summer entitled The Labyrinth House. I am not certain when, but it will probably be sometime this summer. I am very excited because this is my first work of speculative fiction that I have published. I’m going to have Twitter and Facebook sites devoted to this book, so yeah, I’m going to need followers there too.
I’ll be keeping you guys updated on the book, so be sure to listen up for that one.
