I’m learning many new things as I dig myself deeper and deeper into the world of blogging:
– finding time to write would be much easier if I was unemployed
– controversial or funny titles get the most views
– there are already tons of tech blogs
– having a unique perspective might just be enough to get noticed
– even with good content, you need social media to spread the word
This past week of frantic, late night blogging provided a great deal of perspective on the importance of vision and focus. I needed an angle; something to make this blog worth while. So instead of murderously plowing ahead with random topics that keep me awake way too late at night and possibly bore you, the reader, I offer to you the new ApplEvangelist.com.
That’s right! The new address for this blog is http://www.applevangelist.com. Bookmark it. Share it. But there’s much more to this new vision than a new address.
I read technology blogs religiously. They provide an amazing amount of information about emerging technologies, new services, advances in chip design, tweaks to battery technology, et cetera, et cetera. And to a certain percentage of the Internet browsing masses, this breadth of information is very interesting. But in this age of Internet connected, well, everything, almost everyone is impacted by these technological advancements daily. Referencing Apple, solely, there are now over 315 million iOS devices in circulation. 315 million iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and AppleTVs. Maybe it’s inspired intuition, but something tells me not all of those consumers care about the minutiae of battery and chipset technology. A vast majority of consumers don’t think twice about how that device in their hand works; they just want it to work. They don’t care about every detail of a new technology; they just want to know how it will make their lives easier.
And that’s where ApplEvangelist comes in. My goal has always been to get you, the every day non-geek, excited about new opportunities in technology; to give you only the information you need in order to improve your life through tech. Let me wade through the details (I’d be doing it regardless) and parse out and piece together the salient information you need to make informed decisions and to get the most out your devices.
With that in mind, I have some entries planned about iCloud, iTunes Match, AirPrint, the death of physical media, and mobile photo editing in the near future. But I know there are many other questions out there. If you have any questions, ideas for blog posts, or additional information to pass along, please comment on any of the blog entries or on Facebook. And if you just enjoy reading a tech blog for non-technical people, share these blog posts on Facebook, retweet them on Twitter, and spread the word. The larger the following, the more ideas I receive here, and the better this blog can it be.
Thanks for reading!
