So, I Started My Own Company
So you may have noticed that I haven’t been blogging as much the past couple of months as I used to in the past which, I agree, is shamefully abysmal and something I hope to rectify soon. I haven’t lost interest in the MMORPG world or blogging (actually it’s quite the opposite – I’m more keen than ever), I just haven’t had a whole lot of free time lately. In fact, I haven’t had any. Because well, as the title of the post probably gave away, I’ve started my own business.
It’s not a MMO or games company as some of you might have hoped (one day, one day) but rather it’s a web agency devoted to making wonderful bespoke sites and applications as well as some exciting online products that we’re still knee deep in the midst of secretly creating in our lab. And the name of the company? Primate. Y’know, like the monkey (yes, yes, I have a thing for monkeys…).
Aside from MMOs, the web industry is something I’ve always had a deep passion for and have had the pleasure of accruing many years of fantastic experience in it. I’ve also met a lot of amazing people along the way, two of whom I’ve had the pleasure of founding Primate with, one who is an ingenious developer and the other who is a brilliant designer (he designed my blog after all). Although I’ll be doing a fair bit of development myself, I’ll be completing our trio of skills by focusing mainly on online marketing and SEO, something that I’m embarrassed to admit, tickles my fancies on dark, lonely nights.
Of course as well as being incredibly exciting its also all kinda scary and although we’ve been working away feverishly in our spare time for some while now, I officially left my old day job last week and set up shop in our new offices last Wednesday, 1st June. I’ll miss everyone I used to work with tremendously (except Ewan) but it’s a sacrifice I had to make in order to follow my dreams.
We’ll be launching our own web related blog in a couple of weeks and I’ll no doubt pimp myself out again here for those that might be interested in it but, in the meantime, feel free to check out our brand spanking new company web site and let me know what you think. You can also find my new official work Twitter feed here (don’t worry, nothing is happening to my MMO/personal one).
Anyway, I think my blogging schedule will return more to normal now and the frequency of my posts will increase again as I get myself a bit more spare time. Although I’ll be working away like a Japanese beaver in my new business, I won’t be doing two jobs at once any more and thus (here’s hoping), I’ll be able to squeeze in a little more time for MMOs and blogs.
And it goes without saying, if you have any questions or enquiries about web projects then get in touch. We undertake work internationally.
