5 things about online Rob

5 things about online Rob

YC tagged me in a meme entitled 5 things about me online so here goes.

1. How long have you been blogging?
I’ve blogged here for 11 months now, but have also blogged in other places too.So overall I’d say Ive blogged for about 4 years.
2. What inspired you to start a blog and who are your mentors?
I am like most people who have something to say, I like to share my opinions and see what others think too. I’d posted in forums and other blogs here and there and thought that I might as well build something of my own on topics I had an interest in. Blogging helped me deal with my divorce for example, it was a way of getting out stuff that was quite frankly, killing me, in this regard blogging was cathartic.

I actually started this blog here after posting a humungous comment on Matt Cutts blog; he suggested I start my own blog, so here I am 11 months later πŸ˜€

In terms of mentors. I’ve learnt a lot from some quality bloggers out there, some of whom can be found in my blog roll and some whose egos are far too big for me to mention and inflate further πŸ˜‰

3. Are you trying to make money online, or just doing it for fun?
I am most certainly trying to and succeeding in making money online, a small % of what I earn comes from blogging with the remainder coming from various niche sites as well as the odd client here and there.

It can be and most certainly is fun too, especially when you hit on a new idea or technique that works well or achieve an aim and get where you wanted to be, not to mention the various interactions with some smart and interesting people similarly interested in the areas in which I dabble.

4. Tell me 3 things you LOVE about being online

Hmmn, Love is a powerful word reserved for special friends and people dear to me, but I guess I can pretend, so I’d say in no particular order that

i. I get to rant regulary on topics I have a passion about!

ii. I get to play with all sorts of things and ideas that I have an interest in professionally and personally.

iii.I get to make a few quid from the above too, which is always a bonus.
5. Tell me 3 things you STRUGGLE with in the online world

I struggle with the actions of a minority who act in ways that negatively impact me, I can’t lie when I say that there’s a person or two out there that I’d take great delight in kicking rather firmly straight right up the khyber pass πŸ˜€

I struggle with this laptop and its broken spacebar, having to hit ctrl-v after every word with some clipboarded copied space! In fact I’m off to buy a new usb keyboard later as I’ve really had it with this now…aaaaargh!!

Thirdly, I guess that would be my intermittent wireles connection up here in the bedroom.It’s up and down like a whores knickers πŸ˜€

Thanks YC that was fun πŸ™‚

I’ll tag just 3 people as this ctrl-v thing is getting to me πŸ˜‰

    Hi Rob,

    Thanks for tagging me, revenge is sweet huh πŸ˜‰ Unfortunately I already participated in this one.

    On the keyboard front I also have a missing space bar, no letter c and no m either. Luckily on the laptop this is a minor irritation, but if you ever see errors in my typing it’s because of those missing keys and the fact that I’m relying on the touch sensitive pads beneath them!

    Good post, gave me a chuckle, thanks for joining in and good to see you up and running again after the recent downtime – see, one of your readers missed you!

    Doh! Hi Maurice, thanks sorry dude I obviously missed that one :S

    Yes,that downtime was a royal PITA, fingers crossed I’m back for the duration, I’m hoping to do a few more of these lighter humour laced posts, it gets kinda tiring keeping Γ³n ranting about the evils of Google and their shennanigans πŸ˜‰

    Must stop ranting, must stop ra….

    p.s I found the on-screen keyboard in windoze, beats ctrl-c’ing,but hey how would you do that with no c key! Happy days πŸ˜€

    “It’s up and down like a whores knickers” Brilliant. May die of laughter!

    Thanks for the tag, but I was hit by Heather in the first round. The post is called “Self-Centered Syncopation of Stories, Maybe About You” and will probably be on my recent list for a few more days.

    Cheers for taking part, Rob! πŸ™‚

    Somehow I left out the fact that I get to rant too – sometimes it’s hard not to! It’s a wonder what a few quid could do still – does it still buy you some chips there? I miss the corner stall round my aunt’s place in Morden!

  5. robwatts Post author

    Hey YC, yes just about, you’ll still get a nice bag of chips for about that!

    Morden, opposite end of the Northern line if memory serves…I once had an Aunt in Burnt Oak and used to look at the Northern line and think, wow Morden, I wonder what it’s like there πŸ˜€
