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: Jesus Wasn’t Born

Today In History: Jesus Wasn’t Born

If I were a Bible-believing Christian, I’d surely utilize this “Today in History” segment to commemorate the birth of Jesus of Nazareth some 2,023 years ago; since I’m not, I’ll instead take a moment to shed a bit of light on the origins of the coming together of the myth of Jesus and the winter solstice, culminating in the Christmas holiday that we celebrate today.

While it’s not exactly breaking news to most of us, I’ll first note that Christmas is not Christmas for any reason related to Jesus – the celebration of winter at this time of year far predates Christianity and the traditions we all hold so dear, such as bringing a tree indoors, hanging mistletoe for mischievous reasons, and exchanging gifts.

If Jesus of Nazareth lived at all (and there is no evidence beyond late written accounts that he did), modern scholars often place the most likely date of birth far earlier in the year than the month of December.

Historical tidbits and religious affiliation aside, merry Christmas and happy holidays from Hermetic Libertarian – may your gifts be fulfilling and your turkey delicious!
