Welcome to Ares 3 (stylized Ares . Three) – a personal blog, where I write prompts, stories, and reviews from a first person narrative.

My name is Mark Jacobs, and I look forward to sharing my work with you.

In my reviews, I do my best not to post spoilers.  However, one could simply connect the dots seeing as I “write from the I” therefore, disclaimers are always posted if an article contains them.

I created this site in order to get better at writing.  A passion project, if you will.  I am also quite fond of the WordPress software suite, and its community.

I am always open to feedback and look forward to hearing your comments, whether they be in the actual comments section at the end of each post, or via email.

A couple of times a week, photography will pop up as well.  Every time I post a new photo album, they are listed in the Photography section.  I won’t make new posts about them as I tend to post albums quite often, and I don’t consider this a photography blog as much as I do one for writing.  That being said, I do love photography and I’m always excited to see what others produce.

All of the photography I post is free to use however you please.

Thank you for taking the time to check out this page, and other areas of my blog.  If you are a WordPress member, be sure to drop me a line, I’d love to meet you.

All the best, and thank you,
