I have written since I was in grade school, though mostly fiction. I have worked in IT since 1992 and has maintained at least one blog since 2000, back before blogging software, as such, even existed and had to code each page and post in a text editor. Besides struggling with fiction writing, my other hobbies include photography, computer security, movies and search engine optimization. For many years, my first blog, Diary of a Network Geek, was the number one hit on Google for the search terms “network geek’.
I am also a cancer survivor, having Non-Hodgkin’s, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma in 2007, which is when I really gained a greater interest in health and diet as well as a new, more open, attitude about trying new things and experimenting to find what works in my life.
I’m a lot of things, but one of them is a Level 12 Perl Monk.
I’m also a husband, a son, a brother, a friend, a co-worker, a writer, a photographer, a geek, a spiritual seeker, an uncle, a godfather, a Past Master of my Masonic Lodge, and a bit of a cranky philosopher.
If you’re new here, you probably should read this.
This site is all mine and I pretty much say what I want here. Some of it may be pretty damn personal. Some of it may be more than a little profane. Hell, I may even get a little explicit and possibly a little more sexually frank than people under the age of eighteen or over the age of seventy may be comfortable seeing. So, go ahead and consider that a warning, not really an enticement to dig deep for salacious details, because I’m a middle-aged man with good credit and a career that I don’t want to screw up by writing anything that would unduly offend someone I might want to work with for some reason.
Everything on the site is my opinion, thought, feeling, creation, or work, except where otherwise noted. Oh, well, except for any comments written by others, which are their opinions, etc. I have strong opinions, thoughts and feelings. At times, you may not agree with these things, or how I choose to express them. That’s okay. What’s not okay, however, is pissing and moaning about my thoughts, opinions, or feelings. I don’t have time for your bullshit. Seriously. And, don’t think you can convince me to change something I’ve written, unless you can prove that it is factually untrue, just because you don’t like it. In fact, I may just find it encouraging that I’ve stirred up some emotions in you. That’s just how I am. I am not, however, necessarily fair, nice, kind or patient with idiots, so you may want to take that into consideration before expressing your own strong opinions in the comments. And, yes, I do read the comments and participate in the comment threads on the rare occasion that they occur.
I run this site how I want. You do not get to tell me how to run it the way you would prefer. If you try to suggest that you do, I may be rude to you. Possibly, I will use profanity or, worse yet, Latin. I don’t do it often, but it’s been known to happen.
So, what? You have something you need to say to me that’s not for public consumption? Then, e-mail me here at me at jkhoffman dot com.
