Welcome to 2019 and Happy New Year!
In October 2017, I had a vision of what Mark’s Realm would be: an area on the internet where I can express myself freely and share what I am working on with the rest of the world. Unfortunately, due to conflicting commitments and workloads, this remained nothing more than a pipedream and the website continued to collect dust as time passed by. The procrastination stops today, and it is time for action which speaks a lot louder than words.
Firstly, I would like to ensure that Mark’s Realm is a platform where I create and share high quality content for the community on an ‘as and when’ basis. I have a target of one article per week; however, you can expect this number to increase as the year progresses. Over the years I have collected ideas of what to write about – whether it is related to technology or travelling – and 2019 is when these ideas become reality.
Something which has always interested me is developing an online portfolio of work. We live in a digital world and there is no excuse for this to be kept in a paper file any more. I do a lot of digital application development, filmography and photography which means I have a wide range of content to share. Where does complete secrecy get anybody nowadays? It’s time to be transparent!
To supplement Mark’s Realm and my portfolio of work, it is my intention to revive my YouTube channel in 2019. Part of this project includes deleting content from over ten years ago and publishing fresh, professional and relevant content for the community. I am also very interested in taking one of my hobbies – playing video games – to YouTube, and hopefully creating video reviews and walkthroughs in the future.
Great things are ahead for 2019 and I would be very grateful if you could come along for the ride.
