A New Blog Using a New Tool

For years now I've been writing my blog using Wordpress. I've never been a fan of the Wordpress hosted Wordpress.com blogs. It takes away your control, flexibility, and customization options. I wanted all of that from the get go, so I've always hosted my own Wordpress site on my host (I use A Small Orange, highly recommend it!).

However, what I've come to find over time is that I've spent far too much time focusing on improving the look and feel of that site, instead of focusing on the content and writing actual posts. So, as a result, I've decided to completely move my blogging process over to Ghost!

Ghost has been around for a really long time (I think it released in 2014 if I remember correctly, and I've been toying with it since version 0.4. It was great back then, and it's still great now, it's amazing now. It's faster, easier to use, has more features, is more available to work with on different platforms, lightweight, has themes, and so much more! I'm loving it.

Best of all, because of its simplicity and ease of use, it allows me to simply get back to writing posts again, wherever I am. I think it's going to be great.

So, you may have noticed that the URL for this blog is now stefankamer.com/blog, whereas the old site was stefankamer.com. I'm doing this for a few reasons. This first is in order to turn stefankamer.com into a simpler "About Me" page, more befitting of the name that is utilized for the purposes of showing who I am, what I do, work I've done, and how to contact me. To keep that separate from my blogging and my content that I'm writing, I've decided to move the Blog to a sub-directory that will be linked to from the main domain. This should keep things clean, both sites running more quickly, and everything nice and tidy. Well, that's the idea anyway. We'll see how it turns out.

With that being said, my hope is to return to my writing and keep exploring different aspects of technology.

There is something I must note however. Since my last post, I've joined a new company as a Level 2 Mobile Technician, namely, Samsung Electronics America by way of Mosaic Sales Solutions. I work at the flagship Samsung 837 location. I say this because when you're the kind of person that writes about technology, it's very difficult to write about consumer technology without mentioning Samsung somewhere along the way. That being said, every article wherein I mention Samsung will have a disclaimer at the bottom reiterating that I work for Samsung just for full disclosure purposes. Further, I will under no circumstances be disclosing any information that is confidential, nor will I write about or comment on rumors regarding Samsung products or services.

UPDATE: I have moved on to a different company and as a result have no more ties to Samsung. With that said, I am now free to comment on rumours related to Samsung, as long as it's not related to stuff from during my time with Samsung.

Alright! Now we can get back to writing all about tech, and anything else that I come across that I find interesting! See you in the next post!
