Okay. You know who you are. You’ve somehow stumbled across Ed’s Art Net and decided that we might could be friends.
I’m glad you’re here!
Especially for reading this particular blog post. This is where we get better acquainted. You get to learn my motivation for building a website, plus what it is that I expect from you.
I didn’t know what I was doing on September 28, 2007 but I was deeply involved with a bunch of folks that earned a living from building hardware and software for the internet. So I figured that it might be fun to start my own website. I was a hardware guy so my software knowledge is somewhat limited. Notwithstanding that, I awkwardly stumbled my way for quite a few years to finally get to “where” I’m touching down today.
“Where” is this WordPress website/blog you see before you.
Countless hours have been put into building and editing Ed’s Art Net because I’m not a webmaster. Lots of mistakes and confusion later, I think I finally got it to where it’s okay… not great… but okay!
Now for my reason…
In a nutshell, I want you to be happy. Yes you.
Because when we’re happy, we get along splendidly. All of us.
I grew up in a lot of family turmoil so I know a thing or two about being unhappy. This website is geared toward arresting mental turmoil. Heck if I know whether it will work! But nothing is not worth trying, so why not try?
What I expect from you, in a nutshell, is nothing. That’s right… nothing! No obligation, no feedback, no contribution… You are free and I want you and me to remain free.
But what I hope, is that you enjoy my efforts with this website/blog and share it with your friends.
It’s about love.
End of story.
PS – I’ve thought in the past about keeping my identity under wraps because I’m not looking for anything from anyone. But I more strongly believe that each of us should hold ourselves morally accountable to others.
