Let me count the many years have I been involved in the web business? How about, thirty-five plus? I remember the days of “c” prompt on that black screen flashing at me, waiting for a command. Commands I first had to learn in order to communicate with that big clunky box that sat in front of me. Then there was the days of the old BBS Systems. Yep, I was part of that Wildcat series. Then came AOL, an opened another type of window into the world, burning holes in my pocket from all those high phone bills. I logged in, surfed around and had no idea where in the world it was taking me, unfortunately, each long distant visit came with a price, without warning.
It started with a blank blue/black screen and I was right there, a part of its beginning. The world of technology as we know it today came from that dark screen with only one letter of the alphabet blinking away, waiting for us to add something, anything, just type. And type we have done.
Now some thirty plus years later, we scramble to remove the clutter we caused. A simpler web is what so many of us chase now. The buzz words that are floating around out there, minimalist, white space, simplicity and so forth, are all part of a new way of participating online.
In the middle of all my years of web work, I too, got caught up in the upheaval and learned all I could about the Internet and web design and marketing and content and the list goes on. Started a technology company, a publishing company and even co-created a content management system that worked wonderfully for all my clients.
Somewhere I lost my way. The stress the sleepless nights, the many hours of work that never seemed to stop all caught up with me until, until I decided to sell the company, close the others and take an extended hiatus.
What is a hiatus? A pause or gap in a sequence, series, or process.
Just what the doctor ordered, except I still freelanced and piddled around with technology, never completely removing myself. I stood back and watched where it was all going. What others were doing and kept up to date as with all the many changes.
I must say I have been pleasantly pleased with a few companies that have been instrumental in the direction of the web world. You see, minimalism was always a part of who I am. I started my young self as a black & white photographer. I worked hard to only make the image that was the least distracting to me. I still do, somewhat. I shoot for myself as well as for others. Meaning, minimalism is not for everyone and sometimes I make images because I can.
So I decided to work my way back into this field of chaos once more, but, with a different approach.
Instead of tooting my own horn and fighting to market my talent and company, I decided to walk down a different path.
People are constantly seeking information on the Internet. Whether to support a thought, to find what other like-minded individuals or companies are doing, or just to retain more knowledge about a certain subject. To validate something they wish to purchase or ways to do it themselves. The information is out there if you know where to look and listen.
Overwhelming? By all means. Difficult to understand? In most cases.
The reason I decided to create this company. I don’t market my services. But I will my clients. I am not here this time around to gain so many customers that I wear myself out trying to keep up with all the work. I will be the best I can for the world class customers I have. Some have been with me forever it seems. A few are new.
It is my time to do them due diligence. But, with a more balanced and plan of action.
I will use this website to write free-content to help those that want to do it them-self, those that need some of the things they read elsewhere to be a little more untangled. I will try and keep it as simple and manageable as I can for those new comers and for those that have been in spin mode for so long. More importantly I intend on giving big shout-outs about those amazing people that are creating and crafting incredible creations. Not just my clients but others as well. (Guess what? I am one of my own clients) I will write about the tools I use and how I do certain things to keep a reasonable amount of calm running through the things we do here at Kunzie Media Productions.
