    Hi all,

    Not quite into web design (I'd like to be), unless you count WordPress ... maybe you do

    Starting a new business helping people set up their business email addresses with a new domain name and hosting. So many businesses here use hotmail or gmail for their business email ... ughhhhh ! So I've got a large untapped market here.

    Anyway ... middle-aged female with a work history of SEO (loved it !) ... responsible for the SEO of a government website with over 10,000 pages, and the proofreading of every page before it went live. But we moved from the city to a small town and ... no work (I don't think they know what SEO is here ! :unsure so now I'm trying to use the skills I have to make some money.

    Married to a Yank from Chicago, (I'm a Queenslander through and through) met on the Internet, married in Las Vegas - yes, very romantic, and now living in Bundaberg, Qld. 2 adult children living in Brisbane and an obnoxious Himalayan cat who thinks he owns the house.

    So ... found this forum while looking for some answers to questions. Glad I did. Now I'm here and will be posting often, I'm sure.

    Cheers
    Robyn

    Hi- and welcome from another lady "of a certain age" I think is the delicate way to put it.

    You'll find a wide variety of experience and knowledge here, and just as wide a spread of ages.

    Attitude is what counts here - a willingness to share what you know and perhaps to learn things you didn't know!

    Sounds like you have the right stuff - so, again, Welcome!

    Thanks AlphaMare. Who says men have to have all the technical skills, right?

    Know some, but always willing to learn.

    Cheers

    There's only one appropriate greeting here:



    It's stuck in my head for some reason. And it works here. So g'day, mate...or matette!

    I had to post it, Mare. It's been stuck in my head all day for some reason.

    I even introduced it to Sam. She was indifferent to it. She's a Johnny Cash/Radio Margaritaville girl.

    OK - but given the choice between anybody else and Jimmy - Jimmy wins hands down.
    I have Radio Margaritaville playing through speakers from my laptop on my deck while I garden.

    Same here...with the possible exceptions of Springsteen, Brooks and Dunn, Cash, and Jamey Johnson (depending on my mood). I also go more metal when I work out, although depending Jimmy can actually fit in there quite nicely as well.

    One thing's for sure...Sam won't be in to Britney Spears or repetitive techno beats. She's country/rocker through and through.
