Not too long ago, my son asked me a random question, “hey, where did the word “blog” come from?” This question surprised me, since my son knows everything (ask him, he’ll tell you) but it also stumped me at the same time. So I turned to my computer and Googled it. Of course I found the answer in Wikipedia (in retrospect I should have named my son “Wikipedia” since, as I mentioned previously, he knows everything). I actually found it rather interesting.
According to Wikipedia, it turns out that originally “blog” began as the term “weblog” which was created by Jorn Barger back in late 1997. Eventually, another guy named Peter Merholz decided to break it down into “We Blog” as a joke in 1999 and then Evan Williams decided to just shorten it all together to “Blog” (because apparently “weblog” was too much for him to remember). He also began the custom of using it as both a noun and a verb (sounds a lot like “Google” to me). He further went on to start using the phrase “Blogger” i.e. for those that like to blog, and the term became even more common. Now here I am, a blogger that is blogging about blogs. Go figure.
I find it interesting to delve into the meaning behind things. Whether it is a phrase, or a common practice, sometimes a historic place or custom. This lead me to figuring out why people do (or don’t do) certain things. The “cause and effect” of peoples’ actions play a large part in how they are perceived. This is a big part of what I do with my investigative company. I research and look into situations to find answers to why something is happening or why someone is acting differently. To find the answers. To find the truth. When someone comes to me with a problem, I try to help them to find out what the truth is. It is one of my favorite parts of what I do. To help people find answers. These problems come in many forms. Here are a few examples:
- You may be trying to find a relative they lost touch with in Middle Village and they need me to help to find them and help them reconnect.
- Perhaps you may have a Child Custody case going on in Cobble Hill and they need to make sure that their child is safe when they are with their other parent.
- Someone may owe you Child Support and is claiming that they are not working and can’t pay, but you’ve heard they may be working off the books in Canarsie.
- Or you feel like something is not right and you call me from Sunnyside because you are worried that your wife may be cheating on you.
All of these scenarios come with questions that need to be answered. So we dive in and try to find the answers to your questions. You deserve to have the credible evidence as well as the information that you need in order to make informed decisions on how to proceed with your life and this situation.
When we work on a case for you or for anyone we take on as a client, we approach them in different ways, just like our blogs. We start out with the basics – we ask questions to find out exactly what the issue at hand may be and what we can do to help. While they may have some similarities to other cases we have handled, they are each different and we try to approach them in different ways, based upon our years of experience. This will help us know how to proceed, based upon what has worked (and not worked) with past cases in the same genre. We approach our blogs in a similar way. We aim for them to be informative, (but in the case of our blogs, also entertaining), while at the same time a little different than the ones that came before them.
The same holds true with our clients and their cases. Each case we handle is unique to that individual client. Of course there are some general similarities and scenarios, but no two are exactly alike, sort of like snowflakes, or fingerprints. Each one has something that makes it different from the others. We try to approach our cases in the same way that we write our blogs. Each one is unique in certain ways and we try our best to remember that and incorporate those unique factors into the equation when working whether it be on a case or a blog.
With this in mind, if you go to the blog page of our website, you will find that we have a very varied group of blogs to read. We try to come up with different topics which also tie in with cases and scenarios that we have encountered over the years. We try to base them on information that we have researched and also on experiences we have had when working our cases, so that it gives you, the reader, a glimpse into what we do and how we can help you, while still giving you the opportunity to see our “personality” in the process.
Whether it is our blogging or our cases, we do things that hopefully helps us to stand out from the rest of the Private Investigators out there. We put part of ourselves into what we do. We combine our work experience with our life experience and add a dash of our personality and genuine care and concern and put that all together to make you feel that choosing to work with us (or read our blogs) is one of the best decisions you made today. We try our best to help you get the answers you need, whether it be through reading a blog about Staten Island, or inquiring about our services for businesses so we can help you catch an employee out on workers comp with a knee injury (when in reality they are playing soccer in Flushing Meadows Corona Park) turn to us to help. We can get the answers you need. If we can’t get them, I can always ask my son, because as I mentioned before, he knows everything – at least that’s what he tells me. Just ask him, I’m sure he’ll agree.
