Partner at Utah Marketing Firm

I've been going solo for a long time, but it's time I tap someone else's expertise. This means I will be partnering at an established ad agency called Centerstar Marketing. This should be a great adventure and one I look forward to because of the expertise of this Utah Video Production and Advertising company!

Back in the saddle

Well it gets busy, blogging about blogging takes a back seat. I've been working on new projects, mostly Vehicle Vid and mostly managing CAMautoMag from behind-the-scenes while Yom does the grunt work. But most of my energy has been devoted to new companies and my family.

I now have a 20-month old daughter and the late-night editing sessions are pretty much gone. It's an adjustment that needed to happen. So here's to the next step, I'll try to pop-in and update about the new projects on occasion.

Blogging, blogging, blogging

Turns out most of what I do these days is blog. Mainly about cars because that is what I'm passionate about, but there are other things as well. This is odd to me because I don't consider myself to be an excellent writer, but this goes to show that there's an audience out there somewhere for you. You just need to carve out your niche. -Trent

Four down, one added

Thinning the herd was something I mentioned yesterday that I'd soon be doing. Didn't realize it'd happen so quickly. Thanks to a computer issue that lead to a reformatted hard drive, I had some time to kill while it was doing its thing. So, with that, I axed four blogs today. I technically started one a few weeks ago, and so I'm just starting that one, but it'll stick around. More details on it in the coming weeks. A figurative cleaning house was needed. Now to make my own luck.

Full time

I started to write, then re-write this post numerous times. But the short of it is, this has now become my full-time job. Funny Name Media was started two years ago as a passing fancy, and its purpose has changed numerous times. I've been contemplating where I should take it as I've been getting less and less satisfied with the confines of a 9-5. I realize running this means MORE than 8 hours a day, but it's ultimately much more rewarding.
Today was my first full day working on my own and I haven't stopped working since 8am this morning with the exception of getting a haircut. It took until now(5pm) to actually finish this post as I've been too busy doing other things. I've dreamed of this day and feared it(in a good way), but I look forward to what the future brings.
Speaking of the future, I will be thinning out the herd, so to speak. I currently pen numerous blogs on various topics, and it's spreading me too thin. Time to re-align focus and follow my passions. Thank you for your support in the past, present, and future.

New site

I didn't have a direction I wanted to take this blog, so it has languished. My tech musings are now at a new site, Talk Tech Now. Check it out, I'll split the photography blogging off onto a different site in the future.

Launch successful

Yesterday I launched my online automotive magazine and despite a few hiccups getting it going, it has been a success and the response has been great. In one day I more than doubled the traffic to the website. It goes to show it's all about content, content, content. And fortunately the content is decent. I look forward to continuing this magazine for some time.

Cars and Modifications Online Auto Magazine

It's been a long time coming, I've been working on this with Yom for some time now, but tomorrow, our first issue hits. It's the launch of my own online car magazine called 'Cars And Modifications' or CAM for short. Take a look at it tomorrow where you can download a PDF of the first issue.

Wedding Photography update

Last week I told you about a wedding I had to shoot on short notice. Unfortunately time constraints means I haven't been able to edit them yet, but I thought I'd post up one un-edited photo(except for the copyright overlay). I'll get more posted soon.

I've had this MacBook Pro for a few years and after getting my new 13" MacBook Pro, this computer went into semi-retirement. I had recently come up with a way to utilize this computer again as it's still a decent computer. After a couple days of cleaning it up and getting ready for some more use...the N key came off. Now I cannot get it back on. Looks like it's time to put this on desk duty with an external keyboard. It's been done before...
