Information about CreativeNauts

The blog

This project was born in Monday 30th 2013, I’ve had many other blogs in the past but I had to pay for their maintenance (domain, hosting, themes, scripts, advertisement). Eventually and for private reasons, I sold one, killed the other 4 and couldn’t really catch up, hence my decision to make a free blog with the content I want to publish and rub it to the critics’ faces– not to mention the freedom I get. WordPress.com is the current system I’m using, I love it and kinda hate it at the same time for various reasons; mainly, money, it’s pricey to have some customisation around here *groans* but heck, what should I complain about. Now, where did “Creativenauts” as a blog name come from? I’m not quite sure to be honest :/, I was thinking in the word “internaut” and connected the dots with “creative“, get it? Because of the topics I talk about here… no? I’m out then.

If you were looking for a professional web/graphic design blog you are in the wrong blog, old sport… this is merely a normal and simple student’s lair where I write what my head tells me could help others or can make me have fun publishing it. The approach of Creativenauts is personal, from an inexperienced chap to maybe another or who knows, maybe you are a pro and you find my blog worth reading; if you are one, please leave comments and give me a heads up on what I can improve; as a person, as a blogger and more.

The author

My name is Luis and I’m 21 (do the math if you are reading this some years after 2014), I decided to create a personal blog with a variety of topics that I have sheer passion for, such as design (graphic and web), cinematography, pro-wrestling, compilations, the internet, life, rants, languages and much much more. My worst fears are death, nuclear war and meteors. I really want to be someone in the future, but I don’t mean to be rich and powerful, or helluva successful with my face on the media all around the planet; no, hell no. I live by the motto of “decide what to be and go be it“, always do what you like and have passion for; adding to it, I think that, sometimes you stumble across serendipities… meaning that your dream activity shows up with the time, totally unexpected.

The mythic bridge at my uni, when it gets all foggy.

I was born in Tijuana México, April 9th of 1992. I love to eat big steaks, Japanese food and muffins with decaf coffee; yeah… I go to Starbucks and sometimes people say I am a hipster, but I swear! I’m not! Absolutely love classic rock, hard rock, heavy metal, thrash metal, jazz, symphony, blues, funk and old school rap (classics). One of my favourite bands is Black Sabbath, but I also enjoy: Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Carlos Santana (yay!), Hendrix, Satriani, Metallica & Megadeth, Slayer, RHCP and more. Don’t ask what computer I use because I have three, I use my windows laptop most of the time.

By the way my mother language (I prefer to say müttersprache, not sure if I spelt it right) isn’t English, so, if you notice any grammar, syntax or spelling mistake, please let me know. I’m currently in France doing my last uni time in Parsons; and when I graduate, get married and get some money, I will travel to Australia (Melbourne), the UK (Liverpool or London), Japan (haven’t decided the city yet) and maybe hmm… Spain (Madrid of course); in addition, thank you for staying and reading all this codswallop, comment please!

  1. “[…] hence my decision to make a free blog with the content I want to publish and rub it to the critics’ faces […]”

    One thing that has always troubled me about the notion of blogging is that, in spite of all reason, it IS a notion. I don’t quite understand how a personal journal/diary mutated into something with ‘followers’, ‘likes’, and awards. It’s something that I find pretty damn disturbing, hence the quote. People actually formally criticise blog posts and people writing posts actually aim to get ‘followers’ and ‘likes’ with the thinly veiled purpose of connecting with people or simply sharing one’s thoughts openly. I don’t like the notion of blogging and bloggers, it’s all so remarkably two-faced and superficial.

    For my part, I used WordPress as a public journal. A few people I follow(ed) on this WordPress site and others have nominated me for awards but I never responded to it because…yeah, there’s a remarkable ick factor to it. I’m sure that some people are using the term ‘blogging’ to describe the same thing that I’m doing and I can respect that…I’d just ask that they pay closer to language they use and what informs the meaning of the terms they use.

    1. Agree on most parts, a blogging platform doesn’t have to be a CMS to make a website with updates. People even use the powerful WordPress.org system to create elaborated classified catalogs or super structured magazines. I used to have a self-hosted one but I realized everything I wrote I did it for informative and self-enjoyment purposes. I like what I write, if others don’t, they can just deal with it.

      There’s software and services for private or highly personal journals. But my opinion is this: we all have a voice, and it needs to be heard. Wp.com offers me the possibility to reach a good audience with the following and liking thing, but I rarely use them as reference. Sure I use the words “reader” and “motivation” but hey, I’m still sharing knowledge and experiences without a professional approach.

      Thank you for your comment 🙂

      1. But do the ‘bloggers’, the people out there blatantly marketing themselves -thin veneer of attempting to connect to others or not- like some sort of product, do they ever make you cringe?

        It seems to me that you agree that making connexions are important and I can appreciate that, whatever terminology is used.

  2. Hey there, Luis! I always appreciate the kind yet savvy souls who help others be up to date with the current tech trends, progams, and influential folks in the industry. I still play vinyl records and shoot m photos with a 35 mm camera, but maybe with your help I will at least be tech competent! Come visit bodhizwanya.com any time. Take care, and good luck in your studies.

  3. Hola, Luis! Glad to meet you. Hope your studies, adventures and travels are all great fun for you. You might like my nephew’s band Honningbarna (Norway)—they kind of bridge several worlds, and while they’re probably closest to anarchic punk they touch on a lot of other genres (thrash, of course, among them) and Christoffer (nephew; guitarist) and his mates are serious musicians and great guys.
    Cheers!

  4. Hi Luis, I love the picture of the bridge!!! I wanted to thank you for the follow! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one. So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian… Pictures, on the other hand, have no language barriers 😉
    Keep up the good work.

  7. Hi Luis….you are leading a most interesting life which no doubt will continue for MANY years to come – I remember (barely) being 21 and full of ideas and goals…..now I’m just happy to wake up every morning! 😉 Thanks for following my cat’s blog….hopefully we can keep you entertained! By the way, I too really love that foggy bridge photo – it’s magical.

    1. Hey, thank you for commenting. I’m always for following interesting blogs. That picture, yes, but the day was so foggy that the snap was easy peasy to take; it ended up looking like that almost by accident, plus some filters, but the day was indeed foggy as hell.

  14. Glad you’re blogging! You have a lot to share. I like WordPress a lot, but I’m not sure what the competition offers. So, I’m here, too. And working on getting better. Thanks for following my blog, Oh, the Places We See. And best wishes for continued success! http://ohtheplaceswesee.com

  15. Thanks for following WordBowlbyMsCharlieS and introducing me to your informative work! I particularly enjoyed your piece on “distraction-free writing software)…

    1. I liked your blog because it shows words that not everybody knows, I remember I was joyful when I found “serendipity” and “ignominious.” Keep up the good work, thank you for the enjoyment of that post and the comment!
