Hello, everyone! Welcome to my About Me page. I hope you’re having a great day and feeling energized. Since you’re here, I’d like to tell you a bit more about myself, my background, and why I’m running this site.

About Me – Who Am I?

My name’s Russell, from the UK. I’m a gentle guy who probably loves other people more than I love myself. Possibly a flaw, but not one I trouble myself with.

I’m a father of cats – four! They are my pride, joy and angst. I need to keep a duster handy for my keyboard because they like to walk or sit on it. They mess up my posts several times a day!

The most precious was when Maisie (pictured) managed to key in ‘mmmmeeeee’ as she came for her uninitiated job interview in my office room. She didn’t get the job, but I gave her some treats.

I enjoy seeing people experience the world and I enjoy seeing the world myself. I’ve a particular affection for Eastern European and Scandinavian countries. Prague is my favorite place to visit.

I love watching my cats with a new toy or new food; love seeing my nieces growing up with their own personalities; love seeing my home and garden growing around me as I push myself to make things better. Life is all about making the positives bloom, living in the moment and letting any negativity escape from the mind.

I’m happy and lucky in that I have a loving partner and family, not forgetting my pets of course. I learn from other people, as I think we all do. There’s a joy in that, and I’ve made this site so I can share what I know with you.

About Me – My Favorite Hobby

I love to read – I’m a fantasy nerd. I also have my own site devoted to Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time (contact me if you want to know more about that). Of course, I love The Lord of the Rings too and many other books in the genre – Game of Thrones, anyone? I always browse the bookstores when I’m out shopping, it keeps me out of the way.

To lead me on to my next topic, here’s a random ad for Blackwell’s, who are awesome.

About Me – My Work Background

In truth, I’ve worked quite a few jobs. Mostly not for very long, with some exceptions. I was in my last job for over 10 years, but it became time to let it go. I was a debt advisor in that employment.

Instead, I decided to look into making money for myself online. I came across Wealthy Affiliate and they’ve enabled me, through training and support, to get my business going. If you’re interested in setting up a business online, please take a look at the Wealthy Affiliate website and you can learn a bit more about it.

Previously I’ve worked in the theatre as an actor, director, producer and writer. And for many interim jobs, I’ve sadly been a voice on the phone in a call-center. I’m good at it, but my skills are greater than some of the jobs I’ve taken in that field.
