I’m Kevin Harter.
I live in a small town (about 10,000 people) in Southeast Iowa with my lovely wife, Heather, and two wonderful kids, Mercedee and Nathan (8 1/2 and 7 years old, as of today – May 3, 2009). We are a fairly typical family that’s moderately active in the community, at our church, and in the schools. My wife works at the public high school a block away from our house as a clerical associate, and does a TON of volunteering through Girl Scouts and PTO. I own a technology retail sales and service center where we offer computer systems and related products and services.
I started this blog for a couple of different reasons. First off, one service that we offer to customers is the reselling of web site hosting. We build web sites, too, but that isn’t as important to this discussion. Recently, I discovered that I could make more money by renting some space from a discount hosting provider and managing that space myself (versus just reselling accounts to our customers on behalf of a host in exchange for a commission). This blog is the first of a couple of projects that I’m using to learn more about managing the hosting space, dealing with account creation, DNS issues, and the like.
But more importantly, this will act as my voice on the web. I know that sounds cliche, but it really is true. I have another blog, that gets automatically posted to our internal company web site, which I use to point out things going on with the company or pertinent news in the industries. This blog is going to be more personal than that. I plan to use it to voice opinions, frustrations, ideas, and events.
I’m probably not going to be the type to give all of my inner-most personal secrets out over the web – certainly not with my name as the domain name! But those that read my corner of the Net (yes, I’m old school – I still use capital letters when appropriate), may get to know me a little better. You may agree or disagree, and I encourage you to comment, but everything here will be me, now. (I say “now” because I reserve the right to change my mind, too!)
