It’s been a while

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Over a year in fact. A lot has happen in that time.

I’ve Been freelancing, playing around and experimenting with different ideas, dealt with drama between people, moved to a new place, and keeping myself busy. Worked on a bunch of projects all the way from a cleaning company site to one for a company that makes sensors for airplanes, trains, cars and more where I actually helped improve their internal search engine. Another thing I help do was stream line everything from the website to backend processes for a travel related company that helped result in last summer being their busiest season ever.

Thoughts on online dating

I am interested in Online dating somewhat. I have joined dating sites like eHarmony and Zoosk, both sites i deleted my account on. I have a few problems with websites just for dating. They want money, but they also don’t have banner ads so someone has to to pay the bills. So they have to make money, but I’m not sure if its something worth paying for. eHarmony didn’t show profile pictures without paying, Zoosk did show pictures for free. Both of them require you to pay money to communicate. Another thing I don’t like about both Zoosk and eHarmony is that you can only list if you’re interested in “Men” or “Woman”. You can’t list “Men and Woman”. Seems like they both are leaving out bisexual people.

So I think sites that are designed for just only dating aren’t that great. I think it would be better to meet someone over Twitter or chat rooms. Maybe even on Facebook as in maybe they have a mutual friends. So I think its possible to find your prefect match online for free. I think I would rather find someone online and then do online video chats to get to know them and feel more comfortable. Then do offline dating.

I really want to move to San Francisco and build a company also. So I’m not in to dating really right now, but sometimes I will feel lonely and wish I was dating. I think I would date someone who’s in to technology, Moderate politically, healthily, nice and cute. Also religion of them won’t matter really to me as I’m not a religious person but maybe they could help change that.

I also think a kid or a few would be okay, but it’s not something I want to do right now. I see children as getting in my way. I want to build something and do financially well.  Maybe adopt or have kids when I’m 30 or 40.

So far theses are my thoughts on online dating and just dating in general.

Thoughts on religion

When I was younger and uneducated I believed in god because my mom did and she called her self a christian but we never went to church. Back then I thought going to church would be cool but my step dad was like church is just about money and crap. I thought he was crazy, but he said believing in god is all that matters no church needed. Plus you shall not kill or steal. I would pray sometimes at night before but I never really made it in to a habit. Most of the times I would ask god for a new toy. I thought of him like some magical creature. None of the toys I asked for magically showed up when I woke up. I put god and santa in the same category. I kind of started disbelieving in him but other people told me I was doing it wrong, you don’t ask him for stuff. Plus family told me he’s real because he’s the only reason this earth and I exists. Continue reading

How I got into programming

It started back in the sixth grade. I really wanted to get into programming and creating websites. I would find free web hosts. I had a site up, a few days later my site disappeared. All It had been embedded games. So I went to the main hosting site and it was gone also! Then I found another free host which had a nice web based editor. I made the site I had on the other host, again from scratch. I didn’t know about backing up back then. So once I had the site created again, the next day at school I told some classmates about it. It was a sub domain. I told them the web address. Some of them mistyped the address. It took them to an adult site, I didn’t even know about it. So I never really liked free hosting, and I don’t think I will. Sub domains are really ugly and not full control over my site is also not a good thing.

I wanted to learn more about coding, the free website builders seemed like it lacked features. So I thought maybe if I learn how to code, I could do more, and it was true. Html seemed very basic and a good starting point. I went to the library and got a few html books. I flipped around and got to the forms section then I wanted to create a version of Office for the web. I was going to use a text area, I didn’t know about rich text JavaScript editors for the document area. Also this was before I seen web based office programs. Continue reading

echo “Hello World!”;

Hello World! Welcome to my blog. My name is Kevin. I just installed WordPress on my VPS. I’m not much of a blogger but I’m a big Tweeter. My twitter is @keverw. I am 17 now so this hosting account is set up for me by a trusted adult and will probably stay that way even when I am 18 since I don’t have a credit card(I don’t want one, So don’t even send me offers because you will just be wasting paper and ink.). I’m a web Developer. I am working on a social network. I wanted to start a blog because some times I run out of Space on Twitter and I’ll tweet when I have a new blog post. I am also planning on having a blog on the social network I’m working on but that’s not open yet.
