Who's this, you might ask. What's this all about?
Folks 'round my home town call me T.J. Born in Texas, raised Baptist by the grace of God.
What this is all about is tougher to answer. Most blog experts suggest you pick one topic or niche and run with it, but I'm going the other way.
I'm one of the last of the Gen-Xers, I grew up in the suburbs, and I'm trying to do life intentionally without looking like a hipster doofus (that's what Millennials are for). That's got to describe more people than just me.
I think at the core of it, I just enjoy making web content for some reason. I built a few websites in my teenage years writing HTML by hand, as it were--just for fun (optimized for both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer, thankyouverymuch).
I've tried a couple of blog ideas since then, based on my love of reading, Star Wars, Sci-Fi shows, et cetera. Hence the "geek" part of 2BitGeek.
But truthfully, I tend to geek out over lots of stuff. What pens to use at work, which self-defense ammo is best, and how bad comics are getting these days. So I'm gonna write about all that stuff, for my own edification and in the hopes that it will help others (I certainly rely on online review myself, why not pay it forward?).
I'm cognizant of the fact that this blog may also fizzle, and I know out of the gate it's unlikely to reach a wide audience or make me any money (it'll actually cost me, but that's okay).
I bought back the 2BitGeek domain because it's a little sentimental for me, and I'll continue writing under it for as long as it's fun.
Anyway, welcome. I hope you enjoy.
