Hi There, My name is Kevin McClellan, I currently live in the small city of Fayetteville, Tennessee, which is located about 40 minutes north of Huntsville, Alabama. My wife Kristina and I have lived here for just over a year after living in Columbia Tennessee since the early 90’s. Both our fathers relocated there to work for General Motors (and have both retired).
I went to Spring Hill High School and graduated in 1997, and even after my Father retired and moved back to Michigan, I decided to stay behind. I tried moving back up there in 1999, but ended up coming back a year later. Its just too cold in the Winter time for me, and its easier to find work in the South. Michigan has had a long period of slow (sometimes nonexisting) economic growth, mainly due to the struggling auto makers, and its suppliers.
I have always been fascinated with computers, and have taught myself everything I know about computers, and web design. I started learning how to code websites on my own a couple years before I graduated High School. I used to have a really ugly looking personal website, and over time I learned more and more skills, and eventually started designing websites for my friends.
Not to long after I fine tuned my skills helping my friends, I realized that I could make some extra money with this web design thing. So in 2005 I started making money designing other peoples websites, and I haven’t looked back since. Its always been a very enjoyable experience, and one I look forward to continue doing for years to come.
I also enjoy flying planes, and have several hundred hours of flight time in over 15 different makes/models of airplanes. I have had my Pilot License since 1997.
After driving a semi for a living for about 5 years I am now 100% self employed which means I can now dedicate more time and effort in building awesome, professional websites.
Hope you enjoyed getting to know me. I hope to get to know you soon to. Do you need a website? If so, you should contact me. I’ll be glad to help in any way I can. I think you’ll find me to be a very reasonable person to deal with.
Why the name “Crazy WordPress Geek?”
The first time I started selling websites, I had a website called websitesbykevin.com which was slightly successful, but then I thought a more professional name like McClellan Services would sound better, so I registered McClellanServices.com. So many people can’t spell my last name, and even have trouble pronouncing it correctly, so after a couple years I changed it. My good friend David Dutton who I do a lot of work for, said “Man, you can do some crazy stuff with WordPress.” So that is where I got the name from.
I have always thought of myself as the “Geeky” kind, so it was natural to come up with CrazyWordPressGeek.com. Then, due to trademark issues I found out I couldn’t use “WordPress” in my domain name, but I could use “WP” instead. So, very shortly after coming out with CrazyWordPressGeek.com, I had to change it to CrazyWPGeek.com. So here I am with an easy to remember, easy to pronounce, easy to spell, web URL. I think I’m going to stick to this one, but I’m not going to make any guarantees.
Now I have another site called OptimizePressGeek.com, which is my main site now (and have turned this one into just a blog).
I also am currently part of the team over at OptimizePress.com and have been heading up the support team there since earlier this year (2017).
That is about all for now…..
