This Is What Inspired Me to Create Merjeo

Greetings !

I am Charlie, Owner and Creator of Merjeo. I created Merjeo about 15 years ago, and have loved every minute of it.

I love to send interesting and unusual content to my family and friends. After a while, there was just too much content to send individually over the internet. Instead of sending videos, articles, and what not to over a hundred people every day, I decided to post them to one web site, so everyone can see them. And here it is - Merjeo.

What Merjeo is All About

What I have been trying to do is make Merjeo a fun place, where people can go and read about some interesting, bazaar, and sometimes funny stuff. It is sort of a way to just get away from it all, prop your feet up and just relax for a while.

I like posting stuff that others would like to post, but do not have the time, patience or the nerve to post.

Let me assure you that everything you see on Merjeo is all in the spirit of humor. Please don't take any of the material personal. This is not the way it is intended. My purpose is to entertain. It is not to offend anyone.

History of Merjeo

Even though Merjeo is still fairly new, there is some history to it. Here is how I came up with the name.

About 20 years ago, I was running a successful business. I eventually left the business because I wanted to explore other avenues.

One of my clients was another business owner. He and I would spend hours talking to each other about coming up with unusual, but promising ideas. The problem was, we never followed through with anything we talked about.

One afternoon, while we were having a cup of coffee, we came up with an idea that never left me, and one that I was not going to let go to waste. The idea was, a night club for teens. What we had in mind was a real night club that operated like a regular night club in every way except one, which was, not serving alcohol. Well, we kicked around a thousand names and finally came up with one - Mergeo. The original spelling was with a 'G', but I like it better with a 'J'.

Another idea we had about our teen night club was to have the palm trees as the logo. My client wanted a silhouette of a boy and girl. Well, I went to work on designing a logo for Merjeo. And to no surprise, like many of our other ideas, this one just died. But the name, Merjeo stuck with me for the next eight years. I was determined to do something with it, because this was too good a name to just let go.

Just for clarification, it was the name that stuck with me, and not the idea.

Well, what you see now is still the beginning of what I want to do with Merjeo. I am now ready to move ahead with it at full speed.

Response to Merjeo

I have been contacted by many people who have seen Merjeo. Many of these have been friends. Also, a good many of them have been professional marketing people who love to express their opinions. And every opinion is important. Every one who has contacted me has said that Merjeo is unique, and like no other site they have ever seen. To a certain extent, this is true. If there is something to put on a website, and you don't know where to put it, it will always fit on Merjeo.
