My name's Tim. I'm new here (obviously) although I have known about this for a good 5 years now but for some reason that's lost on me at the moment I haven't actually registered on these forums before.
I found the site the same way I guess a lot of people did, doing a search for make money online, or something similar. At the time I was running my own punting company and attempting to make it through a winter without having to do any punting - I'd done it once before and really didn't fancy standing around all day in the cold again. I should say, I do hope people know what I mean by punting as I know there are a few different meanings - let's just say there's nothing illegal involved in what I was doing and it involved wooden boats.
This website inspired me to build my own website chronicling my own efforts to make money online. I went back to the punting job in the summer and still run that business, albeit in a different guise.
I currently own a lot of domains (it's more than 20 probably, off the top of my head) some are extremely aged - one is over 10 years old and dates back from my first attempt to run a business, others I have only just recently registered with the intention of doing things with. I do make a bit of money from my various sites but not enough to give up the day job, which is what I really want to do.
I know a bit about html and css, build all my sites myself (although I have recently started experimenting with wordpress and content writing services) and also do all my own SEO (which is hard work!). I'm so much more interested in doing this kind of stuff than I am in my day job, it's just that having the financial security of the regular income from my job is a difficult thing to give up.
I am always looking to learn more and gather more information and I reckon this should be a good place to do that and while I'm at it hopefully I'll be able to contribute as well. I guess I've rambled on enough for now, so I'll leave it at that but if anyone wants to ask me anything feel free.
