I have decided to temporarily close down the website and social media sites. In the weeks ahead, my goal is to work on and test out some new ideas for making this a place on the web that really does help empower and educate people. One of the last things I want to do is keep working on something that is considered to be, just another tech site. I strongly believe that this needs to become something that will help empower you in some way, shape, or form. I am excited about putting together a new Digital Blaze that will do exactly that.
See you all on the other side,
After some deliberation and a bunch of drunken text messages between The Digital Blaze Crew (aka The Blazers), we have come to a unanimous decision for the daily photos to continue into 2019 and beyond. We also decided to once again reopen The Digital Blaze Accounts in Tumblr, LinkedIn, possibly Google Plus, and anywhere else we can expand our reach. We hope you all have had a great holiday season and are ready to blaze it up for 2019!!
The Digital Blaze has recently announced that after January 3rd 2019, it will stop posting daily photos on its site. “Our mission is to help empower people through technology and posting daily photos is no longer relevant for that” CEO Dan Worch said, “When we first launched The Digital Blaze on April 26th, 2017, it was one of our main features. Sometimes our only feature because were still working on getting our sea legs and figuring out which directions we wanted the blaze to go. I’m still learning to be honest. However I feel we’ve reached a point where we need to expand on keeping people more informed and educated on the ways of technology. We really need to expand on that. Unfortunately, when it comes to expanding, that also sometimes means letting other things go. We hope everyone has enjoyed the photos we’ve posted up. And we hope all of you will enjoy the material we have coming up in 2019. We are excited about this. It’s going to be a much better year for the blaze in terms of content and helping people.”
From December 1st through the 14th, Apple stores are hosting free classes to teach people how to code. Each of these sessions will takes place for only an hour over the two week period. For kids 6-12, the sessions will involve coding with robots. Everyone 12 and up will be given a tutorial on Swift, the Apple programming language used on most Apple products. If you are interested in doing this and/or bringing your children into it, check with your local Apple store for class times and to sign up.
The St. Louis based organization known as The Digital Blaze has made the difficult decision to officially remove social media sites Tumblr and Google Plus from its promotion campaign due to lack of volume and activity. CEO and Founder, Dan Worch, says there aren’t enough hours in the day to interact with followers, promote, and perform everything necessary to make The Digital Blaze a true success in either of those social media platforms. The Digital Blaze has previously posted its content on LinkedIn. However, Dan Worch stated that since The Digital Blaze occasionally posts off color content, he strongly felt that LinkedIn was not an appropriate platform to post its content given Linkedin’s professional reputation. The Digital Blaze will continue to share its content on Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and occasionally posts their own videos on their YouTube channel. At this point, The Digital Blaze is considering using Instagram as a possible social site in the future. Co-Owners Dan Worch and Melissa Warren want to give a heartfelt thanks to the users on both Google Plus and Tumblr for following and supporting them and truly hopes they will continue to do the same on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and/or WordPress. The Digital Blaze will cease posting content on Tumblr and Google on December 1st, 2018.
