In the age of social networks and other various free services provided by websites, people now have less interest in having their own self-administrated hosted websites. Social networks are great when it comes to sharing media & articles, but not as good when it comes to illustrating one’s content. They do provide that required space but they give less when it comes to putting everything a contributor wishes to see in a web page. Your friends will not give all that required attention to a long piece of text that you wrote and facebook will not let you place an image between two paragraphs, but you can utilize facebook to share such article you wrote with your friends. Twitter has a tighter space but with a greater distribution field (not just your friends but all those watching the hashtag you placed into your post). I could have gone with a WordPress.com account, but certain limitations for customization and script installation comes to place, along with the ability to do other tricks you can’t do with WordPress.com.
All of the above made me rent a server (not even a shared hosting account!) to place all the scripts & web applications I desire, customizing it to my like & have Qassoom.ME published. This web space did not only come as a result of aggregating everything I had into a single website, but also utilized the technical knowledge & systems configuration experience I gathered through the years to accomplish what you are now witnessing.
Qassoom.ME came as an attempt to put all of accomplishments & achievements in one place. The various pages placed as links at the top of the page from personal blogging, photography, acting, technological, projects, career and ways to have me contacted are there in order to share my thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world, not only in the social network fashion but also Googled & used as reference for for people looking for certain information. So, illustrate it here, and share the link via social media! 😉
Until this moment this web space is still under construction. A lot is intended to be added, changed and maybe removed later on. Any update to this web space will be mentioned on Qassoom.ME. Your suggestions & comments are more than welcome 🙂
Have a great day!
