    Hello BHW,

    I'm kind of a crab and hide in a shell a lot of the time. I'm sure most people do, but I've been lurking on this forum reading and learning from you all for a few years.
    I haven't really practiced what I've learned and I'm certain it is because I got stuck in a lurker mindset. Anyways I've never been big on participating in a forum community but I'd like to give it a try and hopefully get to a point where I'm contributing as much as I've been leeching here.

    I'm a student of graphic design, fine arts,music production and a former tattoo artist. I produce my own music as well as others, and after graduating from an arts conservatory haven't really pursued financial gain through my visual arts. Although this forum is definitely inspiring me to use my assets and skills to my advantage instead of seeking other skills and putting my eggs in the wrong basket.

    This forum has a wealth of information and some very helpful members.

    Excited to be a part of the group motivation that occurs here.

    Actually I never applied any of my learning. I just read on occasion. I probably frequented the forum once ever two months. It seems like every time I visited I had to change my password. Regardless, I'm pretty sure I called myself a leecher as well.
    Hopefully I'm not misinterpreting your post as hostile. Either way I'm excited to learn to apply what I've read here, and become an actual student of internet marketing and the likes.
