Hello, my name is Dusan! I created Virginia Shenandoah Shores Monitoring (VSS Monitoring for short) as the ultimate software technology website. We write about networking, various software, and basic IT troubleshooting with our esteemed team members – all of whom have a professional background in Networking, Technology, or Professional Services. Over the years I ran my own education school, where I became more familiar with Networking, Technology, and services. More recently I worked at a security company where I learned about the software and mechanisms used to protect devices and keep them malware free.
My reason for starting Virginia Shenandoah Shores Monitoring was simple – to become an amazing resource for individuals and professionals to become better acquainted with the technology. I don’t have any fluff content – I’m here to teach people real things about technology with the help of my team. Although I humbly started this website by myself, due to popularity and the content I decided I needed additional writers to help me meet the demands of our audience! However, it’s not easy to closely watch what other writers do so please let me know if you have questions or concerns about the content!
The site is still quite new and I will be updating our journey here as we continue to progress. As of now, vssmonitoring.com gets more than 90,000 visitors per month – all organically from Google and we’re growing. We’ve come a long way in the past 11 months and we’re looking to more years of growth and continued excellence to best help our readers.
If you have questions or inquiries please feel free to contact me via the contact page, or you can reach out on LinkedIn.
About Lawrence, Our Chief Writer
Lawrence graduated cum laude from Boston University with a B.S. in Journalism. He then started working with The New York Times for 3 years as an editor. Upon their acquisition of online review website the Wire Cutter he became exposed to the digital world of review-style articles and digital content. He was a writer for many tech review products where he developed his expertise in the electronic and PC peripheral space. He quickly got promoted to managing a writing team where he was responsible for training and managing a team of over a dozen writers. After being there for another 3.5 years, Lawrence left in late 2019 to help Dusan create VSS Monitoring, where he could help design and contribute to the site’s content and website’s architecture to develop what he wants to become THE top tech resource online.
Our Mission Statement
Everybody has wasted time and money buying products, ourselves included. For Dusan the first "lemon" he bought was a TV in 1984 that broke within 2 days and completely stopped working. For Lawrence it was a gaming monitor when he was 16, playing Maple Story but the right half of the monitor had dead pixels within a week. Fueled by these frustrations, Dusan & Lawrence sought out to create a resource that puts together information and buying guides to help their readers buy products online.
