I originally launched my web-related service offerings in 1998, when I began providing low-level consulting services to local professionals, teaching them about the web and what they could do with it.

After securing a respectable clientele, I decided to branch out in order to offer my services to a wider audience, and I subsequently created a more public home on the web to further the cause in 2005 with the launch of a web services firm called PALSYS.

Since that time, my work has been focused not only on technical development, but also content creation; while it is easily lost behind the media-driven face of the modern web, the written (or typed) word is still the real language that powers information exchange, and I am in the business of promoting words in general.

I am now an online publisher of engaging, enjoyable content on a variety of subjects, working to fill the web with the kind of words that people want to read. My content is published on both websites that I own and those of my clients, helping them to rank well in search engines, draw new traffic, and create new subscribers.

So what is it that I can do for you, exactly? Well, besides being something of a magician with the English language, I also boast sturdy HTML, CSS and PHP skills, along with extensive experience in social media, search engine optimization, and other forms of marketing, allowing me to offer you well-rounded assistance with nearly any project, web-based or otherwise.

Today In History: Edict of Thessalonica Issued

Today In History: Edict of Thessalonica Issued

On February 27 in the year 380, the Edict of Thessalonica was issued in Rome, making Nicene Christianity the official state religion of the empire and setting a course that would guide the religion of the west for the more than 1,600 years since.

Also known as Cunctos populos, the edict was issued by Theodosius I, Gratian, and Valentinian II, following the baptism of Theodosius by the bishop Ascholius of Thessalonica after he suffered a serious illness in Thessalonica.

Besides naming Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire, the edict also opened the door to outlawing other forms of worship, with Theodosius immediately making efforts to suppress not only other religions, but even other forms of Christianity.

Three years after the edict was issued, the Emperor ordered all non-Nicene sects, including Arians, Anomoeans, Macedonians, and Novatians, to allow him to review the validity of their views and philosophies. That effort resulted in all but the Novatians losing their right to congregate, ordain priests, and preach their views to the public, setting the stage for an orthodox Christian majority that would go on to spread throughout Europe and the world.
