Hey everyone, first of all- I’m really glad you’re reading this and visiting ChristianMcKinney.com, a website about me, Christian McKinney, and what I’m doing.
I built the first version of this site back in 2014. It was my first attempt at me taking control of my online identity. I hoped it would be a kind of stake in the ground about me, but turned out to be more of just a resume in narrative form.
That’s why I’m so excited about the re-launch of ChristianMcKinney.com as a full-fledged website that really tells my story and what I’m up to lately.
I do post content on a handful of sites and platforms (and I’ll continue that), but I want this website to become a home base of sorts for all of my content.
It’s not rocket science, but I believe it will be for the best in the long run. I just want to bring value to whoever reads, watches, or listens to what I’m talking about.
Coming from a news background, I’m particularly interested in the evolution of content among the rise of the internet, social media, and the internet of things. In addition, I’ll post about things that are currently puzzling me or fascinating me.
To me, there’s always been something desirable about owning the Christian McKinney name in a .com. Have you ever thought about that? Or do you own your name in a .com?
The whole thing is kind of fascinating to me. You can read more about my thoughts on having your own online home base in an upcoming article.
I hope you enjoy what I’ve got in store, readers and watchers. And I’m also looking forward to your comments and feedback on everything. If not here, please send me a tweet with your thoughts. Thanks again for being here! Much love ❤️.
