While I’m working on some coding related posts, I need some content to appear on this site. So you guys, won’t delete my blog from your RSS readers and bookmarks 😉
I know, there are some returning visitors (~20%), and today, I decided to make the first step towards community building. (Blaaah, am I really blogger?) I want you to drop a comment on my blog telling something about you. Where are you from; what do you do; what blogs / forums you read; what kind of posts you like / want to read; or anything you want to say. Your valuable feedback will help me to improve this crappy blog and attract more readers.
I know we all busy and don’t have time for commenting someone’s blog. I don’t hurry you. Comment anytime you want. To make commenting easier, here is my short story…
I’m WEB addicted nerd from Europe that never stops looking for some fresh techno-coding stuff. I got the first computer (can I really call it a computer?) in … I can’t remember when. 15 or 16 years ago perhaps. It was heavy, ugly-looking basic-driven box that switched my mind once and for all. One day the box burned down. My dad took it to a local repair shop across the street, but they said the box’s “XYZ” diagram is missing and they can do nothing. Now, the box is buried somewhere in the parent’s house. (I donno, maybe I should do a pic of it.)
I’ve started serious coding 10 years ago. Have studied computer sciences for 6 years at university, and graduated 3 years ago. I also had a share in one adventurous web biz that failed. When I’m looking back in time, I see how stupid we were. We couldn’t squeeze juices out from a low hanging fruit. But that’s another story. Now I have IT related job that I’m not really crazy about (sounds familiar? :D), do coding and SEO for money and myself. In next two-three years I’m going to quit my job and start my own biz. Working for someone else is not for me. Why? Steve Pavlina can explain it better than me.
The blog you’re reading is just a hobby that will never grow up to something like John Chow’s monster. But it’s getting better over time. I have some good blogging ideas in my todo list that can drive good amount of traffic. BTW, my message for those who doubt – yes it’s possible, you can make money blogging, and it’s easier than you think. Just don’t quit after two-three months. Take a break when you don’t have anything to say. Learn something and return to blogging when you’re fresh enough to give something valuable for free. It pays off. I’m saying it, because I made more than planned. It just takes time.
So that’s it for today. I hope you’re not angry about this long codeless post. And don’t forget to introduce yourself
