Hey there person. This is my blog, the methaneSeagull.
The name is strange & the story of how I got it is anecdotal, perhaps one day I will decide its worth telling. But the short version is that it is a meaningless name and purposefully so. It is my hope that the monecere is meaningless enough to be ignored thus drawing attention to the content. I’m sure that if a PHD Psychologist ever reads this they will be able to instantly produce a short essay for my comment section about why that idea is ridiculous and wrong but I digress. This is about the site content. Or more recently the lack thereof.
I started this blog in summer 2017, It was initially a demonstration to both myself and whoever paid any attention of my growing knowledge of coding, web design, server admin, and any other skills necessary to complete a project like this without relying on 3rd party providers. Now you may say to yourself that the concept makes for a pretty boring website. And you would be correct. The site itself is not the substance. So I did what I could to fill it with media reviews, tech commentary, etc. and did what I could to promote it via Reddit. I did not monetize it then, and still haven’t today (yet) being that it was and still is just a project. But just to be clear that day is coming, $$$ helps bring better content just saying.
So the Reddit campaign met with limited success and would have continued had it not been for a far physical move for me. I was living in New England and now find myself is sunny Florida working a new job and spending much more time in the field and away from my desk. Needless to say the site has suffered, I believe my last post was last September.
That being said I’ve now been here 6 months. I’ve fallen into a routine. I’m starting to get at least a little bit of free time. (that or I’m just managing it better) And I’m ready to revive the methaneSeagull. though this time with real (kinda real) purpose. Still it will be a repository for my brain droppings, though I want to move away from being a media review site and more towards tech focused. I’m trying to start a software development company and this site will serve as an initial repository for that project. It will still be opinion based. Everything that goes on this site will be a product of the mind of myself or my associates. You are free to tell me I’m full of shit providing you can do it like a human being. (hint; don’t use the words “full of shit”) Were all humans here and make mistakes and are still expected to act civilly about it. Should a code of conduct be needed it will be swiftly drafted. Otherwise that’s it. Please enjoy methaneSeagull.com
