Climbing into 2019: projects, writing, and WordPress

I’ve been meaning to create more updates on this blog, but again, I’ve been slammed with more work than ever before as things start to transition once again in my life. While it’s challenging, I’m also learning to appreciate time management more than I ever have before. Projects that have been backed up for weeks (sometimes months, even) are getting some daily attention as I start to understand the importance of time and how little of it we have.

I’ve been trying not to put my podcast on hold, but that was unfortunately benched while I realign a few things. However, it will soon be time to bring back some of the things that I love to do and want to share with you.

Let me also say that the motivation that I needed came from seeing you all creating wonderful things yourselves. I forgot that I know and interact with so many talented and artistic individuals and I’m really eager to work with you all again.

It’s not just being more active in a creative respect. I’ve been more conscious of my overall health as I am edging towards the end of my 20s. So, I’m making a promise to myself to start taking better care of my body and my mind well before the time that New Years resolutions are made.

So, speaking of the new year, welcome to 2019. The start of the year is promised by many to be the start of something fresh, something new. What do I have to offer up to the New Year Gods? Well, promises. Like so many others. Promises to myself. Promises to those close to me. A promise to not fade away. To be forgotten is worse than death. Or so I’ve read.

But hey, this is always a great way to start. If I have in writing, I have something with a little bit of weight.

While I’m trying not to mention it on this particular blog (as it’s more related to digital media, film, photography, etc), I have made the move to completely revamp what I’m doing with my writing, because I really want to make that a large focus for this year. Check it out.

WordPress was the first big move that I made. Used as an open-source management tool, WordPress has a lot of power behind it, with an even more powerful community that is using it. It is a place where anyone can create the webpage they desire. Utilizing themes, WordPress allows the user to easily create their ideal website or blog. The themes that can be used can also originate from the user, utilizing web design practices and interfacing. However, there are many resources available for those who aren’t as savvy in basic design, HMTL, CSS, etc. There is also plenty more features that I’m failing to mention.

I’m just looking for something basic that I can build upon. So, basic designs and easily developed interfaces are part of my initial blog. Later, I’ll be looking into more advanced design techniques and possibly sharing some of that on this blog.

WordPress, it seems, helps connect users to more accessible communities, providing many social
options, including the ability to interface with others with similar goals or interests. This is something that I’ve been lacking. I need people that can help build me up and vice-versa. Also, what good is my writing if I don’t give it a little exposure?

So, I’ve laid out how I’m starting this year. I will also be making a few film investments in the near future, because I’m not completely out of the game and have plenty of vacation days saved up. Oh, and photography. I’m investing more time in photography. That’ll be the focus of my next blog post, actually. Please contact me if there is anything that you need me for or if you have something you want to collaborate on.

See you in 2019.

Hey, everyone. How are you? I’m doing pretty well. My name is Steven. I’ve been living in Pittsburgh for a few years now. What sort of projects have I been working on, you ask? Well, I’ve assisted with several indie film productions in that time, mostly directly behind the camera or working with camera operations. It has been pretty fun. I’ve also been working on several other projects individually. This website is a collection of those projects that I do on in my spare time. Please click on the links above to learn about some of the work that I do in digital media and writing. I hope you enjoy my collection, which is a combination of old, archived work and new content I am compelled to share with you. Please feel free to interact, engage, and help me make some friends and colleagues in the creative media communities!
