My name is Kenneth, I am an independent developer and artist who is currently in the process of trying new things to figure out what I am good at doing and what I enjoy doing. In the process I am tackling disciplines such as webdesign, graphic design, and the odd bit of programming here and there. MediaMajesty serves as a portfolio and showcase of my works, whatever type they may be.

So I have been off a while, but believe it or not I have not abandoned MediaMajesty. Quite the opposite I have been looking a lot into its future. As I prepare for college and entering into the work force I get more and more concerned about the fact that I might end up in a dead end job that I hate. Hopefully that wouldn’t happen to me but I am concerned never the less. I realize that I really want to do something I enjoy and be able to make a living off of it.

Now I look at MediaMajesty whether it be graphic design, creative writing, webdesign, or whatever. The truth that I wish not to admit is that those type of things are difficult to monetize effectively enough to make a living. I also enjoy blogging but again how could I effectively make money off of that?

So I am coming to terms with a few things. First, an obscure and unknown blog will not make money be it ads or actual products. Second, I don’t update near enough or interesting enough posts to have an effective blog. Third, the type of work that includes graphic design and webdesign needs to have a portfolio component which a blog structure does not support.

My solution is to turn MediaMajesty into a literal portfolio website structure. That way the website will not suffer from lack of posts, I have a collection and history of my works, and I can spend more time on my actual works than making viral blog posts.

Since I have a redirect from MediaMajesty.com to MediaMajesty.com/wp/ anyways, I am debating about whether or not to keep the blog alongside the actual portfolio site. I don’t need to remove it and I could easily link to it, but again I am still debating. Discussions with copyright and trademark attorneys made me realize that a blog could be a fast and effective tool for copyrighting content before registration, so I may keep it for such purposes.

It’s always the same story that I am extremely busy with school, extracurricular activities, and now a part time job. But I do have time until adulthood to realize the weaknesses of my site and develop a functional business plan that generates profit. While I do currently possess a trademark on MediaMajesty, I could then make the leap forward to form a business be it an LLC or otherwise. Regardless to form a business a portfolio must come first.
