This is an article a freelance writer, Rosella Hill, made for me about my business.  Check her works out here.

Everything is digital. The world today is run on electronics; computers, smart phones, tablets and such. What do you do when your lifeline malfunctions? Many people simply try to fix it themselves. These days you can go online and find a step by step tutorial of how to fix, repair or upgrade anything yourself. Then the question becomes, “What if I mess it up? Will I find a tutorial to fix that too?”
The answer is simple. Don’t risk it. Unless you have the right qualifications to disassemble, tweak, and reassemble a complicated system of wires, hard drives, computers and the like, it is not a good idea to try. There is a good chance that you’ll make the problem worse. You will make it harder and more expensive when you end up having to take it to a professional.

Who is Shay Gooding?
Olympic Tech Goods and Services is located in Forks Washington, a small town in the middle of the Olympic Peninsula. The town thrives on logging, hiking and fishing. It is a tourist area for the famous Twilight Sega. The owner of the store is Shay Gooding, a self motivated over-achiever. He grew up in Forks, WA and has spent his life with an impressive passion for technology.

He left Forks to further his career and make a name for himself using a computer that he personally built. He was married to an inspiring woman in the summer of ‘02 who helped to motivate him to achieve his goals.

With an associates degree in computer networking and technology, Mr. Gooding set out into the real world. He went to work for companies like AT&T, Office Max and Comcast. When he finally decided that it was time to move back home, he made the decision to start up his own technical business.

Specializing in computers, he now owns the computer repair business, Olympic Tech Goods and Services. He is an expert at repairing and maintaining computers, upgrading systems, and computer usage. He is known to be a hard-working and very accommodating business owner who will out of his way to help his community and work with those who can’t afford to pay all at once.

How Can Olympic Tech Help You? 
Along with the excellent computer repair and upgrade services he provides, Mr. Gooding also offers computer lessons for those of us who aren’t as tech-savvy as we want or need to be. Forks residents say that Shay is great at repairing cell phones.

Mr. Gooding says that he works at great rates because it is more important to him to help his community than to make a ‘quick buck‘. This is why Olympic Goods and Services is the best choice. They really are motivated solely by the need and the desire to help. If you need more proof, come to Forks and ask around for yourself.

Remember when passing through Forks Washington, to stop by Olympic Goods and Services and see for yourself why everyone is raving about this small town computer repair business.

It's definitely that time of year cold and flu season.  My son has been battling a cold and while cruising around the web I came across these helpful tips and thought I would share.

Forks High School facade

In case you didn't know the original Forks High School was torn down this summer with plans to try to save the front facade.  Now the facade is at risk of being torn down.  The school board has to give the community an opportunity to raise alternative funds to save the building and a town meeting will be scheduled soon.

Back from the depths of abandoned blogs.

Hello all, like I said before I haven't abandoned this blog, and still do not intend to.  The family is back in Forks from the hospital, have been for a bit, but things are still hectic.  It should just be two more appointments before our son Brodie can start walking on his own again.  He started kindergarten but has not been able to attend many days because of doctor's appointments.  Also either my wife or I has to accompany him to school to help him get around, this is a difficult task with two working parents.  We missed the best part of summer in Forks because we were living in the hospital for a month.  So now the summer is winding down as are the tourists and Twilight sales.  On the plus side my name is getting around and business is picking up with word of mouth advertising.  I will just keep doing the best I can to get my name out there associated with good work.

Quick Update

Well, if anyone visits this page and you see it hasn't been updated in a while, I'm letting you know I have not abandoned this blog.  I've been out of town, my son was in an accident and is over at Harborview Medical Center.  My wife, his mom, is with him right now but I will be heading back over soon.

Time to hit the ol' watering hole

Well it's another scorcher fur us in Forks, WA.  We hit over 90° yesterday and supposed to hit about 85° today so I think we're going to go down to lake pleasant and do some swimming.  It's so seldom we get the weather to do so around here, we have to jump on it when we have the chance.

Sunny all week, except for the 4th.

Well for me the 4th was a bit of a bust.  The wife had to work and our son was sick as a dog.  We watched the parade in the morning and he enjoyed that, but the rest of the day he slept.  I missed out on the derby and park activities because the little guy was sick, but it's ok cause it was heavy mist all day anyway.  So the vamps got to enjoy the 4ths activities this year.  However since then we have been vampire free as it has been sunshiny and hot outside (anything 80° or higher is sweltering for us).  There were lots of Twilighters in town on and around the 4th so business has been good the past week.
