A long time ago, in a galaxy far…wait, wrong story. Um, let’s try again.
Some time ago, maybe in 2006, maybe earlier, maybe later, I don’t remember and honestly, it doesnt matter but, I started my first website: jacobmast.net. It could’ve been a personal site, but with LiveJournal and MySpace covering that arena, I focused on building a place where I could showcase my photography and hopefully sell some works. I am a photographer, or at least that’s what I told myself. “Take yourself seriously, and so will everyone else”
The problem with taking yourself seriously, is that it’s really hard to have fun. Over the years, I changed the design multiple times, trying different styles and themes to find one that was both professional and easy to use. Eventually, I ended up on SmugMug. I liked their interface, and that I could upload pictures through their app, but it was a lot more expensive than the self-hosted sites I used before.
After a year or two, I found myself expanding. No longer was I just doing photography, but I had some software I was developing, and had taken some grand adventures and had other stories that needed a place to be shared. I had outgrown my site and needed something else, something more professional sounding, but could still let me be me.
Welcome to Mastodon Creative Services, my new home for any new venture I might try. It’ll still host my photography, but now other stuff too, like the creation of my own Jurassic Park Jeep. It’s something that wouldn’t have a place before, but now I can, describing the 3D printing, custom wiring, and how to turn a garage into a paint booth.
Welcome to Mastodon Creative Solutions. It’s gonna be a fun time
