Just “another” tech site? Might as well turn back now. Ok, please don’t. Stay right where you are. I promise I will make your time worthwhile. Let me start off by welcoming you to aQuickBit.com! You can call me Kage and I’m kind of in charge of things around here. I’m glad you took the time to come see what’s going on here. Well as you can see…not much at the moment.
However, that is going to change. [divider type=”thin”] I have a lot planned for this year and I hope you would like to share the journey with me. I will be reporting on wireless news, doing unboxing videos of gadgetry that fall into my possession, reviews of said gadgetry, possible tech tips to get more out of your device, and lastly giving you my real-life narrative with Google Glass. [divider type=”thin”] I know what you’re thinking, “What makes you stand out in the tech community? Why do you deserve my presence?” Well I can’t really answer that other than the fact that I love talking about this stuff with people and getting my friends excited about things that are coming out. Like I said, I have Google Glass and that has kind of what pushed me over the edge to really get this project going. About a month ago I posted a ~3,300 word narrative review of my time with Google Glass on Reddit’s Google Glass subreddit and apparently it was a hit. I thought it would have been buried in the submissions because it was so long, but instead it took a completely opposite direction. My fellow Redditors loved it. Ok maybe not “love”, but really appreciated the write-up. I couldn’t believe people actually sat down and read the entire thing (let alone me typing the entire thing). Through my narrative, I ended up persuading a few people to go ahead and purchase their very own Google Glass. One person was so pleased with my post that they gifted me 4 months of Reddit Gold.
At this point I started to realize that maybe people actually do want to hear what I have to say. Well read what I have to type…you know what I mean. I got requests from others to keep the posts coming and that they would like to see more of me in that subreddit. It made me feel great that I could have such a positive influence on random people around the world. Helping: that’s all I’m trying to do here.
So that is why I created this site. I didn’t want to limit myself to just the Google Glass community on Reddit. I didn’t want to limit myself to just one device, even if that one device is kind of my selling point. I wanted to take inspiration from my three favorite tech sites of all time. Engadget, Windows Phone Central, and most importantly, Droid-Life. For years I have always thought that these three just do it right. Like that is how a blog/tech news site is supposed to done. I also love the community that Kellen, Tim, Eric, and Ron have built for themselves over at Droid-Life. I would like to try and do the same thing here, but not just Android related. I know it is going to take a lot of hard work just to be 15% of what those three places are, but I’m in it for the long haul because this is something I have a passion for. I know it might be weird that I am promoting another site on my first post, but I feel like I owe them a public “thank you” for showing me where good ideas and objective mindsets can take you.
That’s it. Here’s to wrapping up my first post that will get me going. I know it was a kind of long and by no means “quick”, but I wanted to share with you all who I am and what this is going to be about. Future posts will not be this long. They will be just long enough to read through the duration of a quick lunch.
So grab a byte to eat and let’s talk wireless.
