Welcome to Behind The Gear! It’s been a while since I worked on this website, but amidst these weird times I was inspired to start this project back up. I’m not going to stick to any predetermined schedule at first, but ideally I’ll have a steady flow of content as time goes on. As you’ll notice, the site has undergone a few changes, notably the URL and layout. It was somewhat unorganized before and the homepage was very in your face, so I’m switching it to this welcome message and the most recent article I’ve released. The entire backlog of articles can still be found under “The Gear” in the top menu, in case you want to revisit any of them. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the site!
