My passion for blogging, websites, and the World Wide Web, in general, sparked when I created my first blog using Blogger, over 14 years ago when I was in high school. It wasn't something serious, just fun and nonsense for a short period of time.
I didn't start something else until after college, in 2012, when a friend and I started browsing UpWork (formerly oDesk) out of curiosity but ended up getting a gig working for a website. That's when I discovered SEO and started learning and reading daily about it to this very day.
In 2013, I was getting some quick SEO gigs on UpWork, which made me some beer money. We also started two WordPress blogs. The first one failed rather quickly, but the second one lasted much longer and also had some traffic.
In 2014, I was handling SEO and WordPress for a website, and also created ThemeSkills.com, where I offered WordPress services and guides. It was sold in 2019.
In 2019, I started diving into web development, which I really like and always wanted to learn.
Currently, I'm blogging for pleasure on WebStoked, managing a WordPress site icon generator, selling prebuilt WordPress sites & blogs, and working as a freelance WordPress blogger for ReadyShip's blog.
