Hello! My name is Ben Medina, and I’d like to take some time to allow you to get to know me a little more.
I’m a recent graduate of the University of Illinois in Economics and Statistics. I joined social media professionally in the fall of 2014, and I started my own website Tech Lovers in the summer of 2015.
I share and create content relating to social media and content marketing, blogging, career tips, and personal motivation. Other times, like on Tech Lovers, I share cool things that I find interesting.
On that note, you may be thinking “What is Tech Lovers?” Let me explain.
Tech Lovers is an example of a curated blog. Most blogs consist of original pieces and long-form ideas. Some do create long form posts out of curated content. An example would be “Top 10 games to play on your computer”.
A curated blog, by contrast, consists of summarized content from other sites. I use various techniques for finding these; this blog post lays it out.
So why would I visit Tech Lovers?
One benefit of a curated site is that much of the hard work of finding good content is already done for you. If you don’t want to sift through a site trying to find the latest information, you come here.
Ok, enough about Tech Lovers. Here are some fun facts about me:
- I’ve been a violinist since I was 5 years old, and I also write music in my spare time.
- I’ve been a Shakespeare actor since high school and in college I was a part of the What You Will Shakespeare Company.
- I used to do sailing in high school and it’s one of my favorite sports, especially in the summer
