Figured I'd write a bit about why I'm doing this thing in the first place. I created Daves Personal Safety Blog to compliment my website http://www.davesjoint.com/ . It's a way for me to communicate with my customers and get feedback on my site and the many products that we carry.
But what was the driving force behind davesjoint in the first place? Well, ever since getting a computer and going online about 5 years ago, I've been intrigued by the ecommerce field. I'm a Healthcare Profesional and have practiced as a Medical Technologist for 18 years at a well known Hospital on Long Island, New York. I have a wife and 6 year old daughter and struggle to provide for my little family just like everyone else. I've made a living in this field but really need to supplement my hard earned but low salary (like many other people in NY and accross this beautiful country we live in). Fortunately there are many things a hot blooded, capitalist can do in America to earn some extra money! And instead of getting a traditional second job at Starbucks I decided to explore non-traditional options.
I saw the huge potential in the online marketplace. I started looking in to what it would take to open up my own ecommerce website using a number of platforms, and decided on developing a website focusing on Personal Protective Devices, Personal Alarms of all kinds, and Mace Brand Products (which you can find on my site if you follow the link above). I love these products and really feel as though I'm helping people by selling these devices. I also love to give them as gifts to my friends and family. In a world where crime is really out of hand it's great to enable people to protect themelves and their loved ones. I found a great supplier and taught myself how to develop an online presence (including the development of this blog). I also have expanded into a diverse product line including Digital Gadgets, Digital Picture Frames, MP3 and MP4 Players, Personal DVD Players and much more!
