But now that I have your attention, I’d like to officially welcome you to BilGaines.com, and invite you to bask in the glory of our grand opening on this day, May 5, 2011, my 30th birthday.
The site is not complete yet, but I figure there’s enough here to gather some interest in returning, and that’s what I’m truly interested in. I’ll be using this website as my personal playground for search engine optimization experiments. I’m also hoping to provide enough interesting content to create a “readership” or “following” or whatever you want to call my cult of devotees.
I’ll be using the ever-handy Google Analytics to create my own infographics and share the results up here. I love infographics – like, a lot – and I hope to contribute some back to the universe that provides so many for me.
Here’s a video briefly explaining why I’m such a geek for infographics:
“Pie charts suck, be wary of them.”
Honestly and truly, I want to offer my personal guarantee that every link you see on this website is worth clicking. Here are some particularly interesting sections:
The SEO component of this journey will rely most heavily on Sharkblog, where I discuss the hybridization of sharks and other beasts. Also, the splicing and fusing of sharks and movies, sharks and advertising, sharks and music…basically sharks and shark monsters in pop culture.
Gaines the Photographer
I am also offering up my own photography. Steal away, I won’t come after you over copyright infringement. Be aware: my wife & I are expecting our first child ever in the middle of June, so there’s going to be an explosion of baby photos coming my way over the next year. I’ll try to only put up the really interesting ones.
Gaines the Writer
Furthermore, you can read some scripts I’ve written. You can even produce them if you want, royalty-free.
*Note: The scripts page is not yet finished – I’ve only got a few up right now – but I’ll be adding more over the next few days, so check back often! (See what I did there? String ’em along, Bil, string ’em along. Keep the wolves hungry, they’ll come back for more.)
I’ll also occasionally throw a music video into blog posts, because music videos are one of my favorite forms of entertainment.
Lenka – We Will Not Grow Old
At any rate, this is just a little bit of what you’ll find here. Hope you like it.
Hope to see you again soon.
