    Hello guys,

    My name is Eduard, I'm 23 years old and I'm here for the following reasons.

    1. I want to learn

    2. I want to earn

    3. I want to have fun while doing so


    I'm 23 years old, poor af, no college degree, etc. I'm not that old but I think it's about time to stop being poor so I decided to make something about it. I've been on the internet for more than half of my life now, I've just been doing the wrong things. Like many others, I started using the internet at an age when I couldn't pick up the useful stuff and I just went with the fun stuff, that's how I got into MMO games, and since that day, until like half a year ago, that's everything that I did, everything that I cared about. But things change, and I have to change too, or I'll get left behind. So 6 months ago, I woke up, deleted all my games and started using the internet for it's real purpose. To learn new things.

    I got into web design and learned the basics of HTML/CSS on free code learning websites, than I wanted to create my own websites so I started reading about everything that has something to do with this.

    2 months ago, I applied for a job as a web designer at a local agency, I got denied because they said I'm not good enough for this job yet. However, they still offered me a job on their SEO team. I knew the basics of SEO, so it seemed like this is going to be interesting at first, however here I am, browsing crappy websites and sending e-mails 8 hours a day for like 300 $ a month worth of my country's currency. I know, I live in a bad country. It's enough to live normal tho, esp for me, I don't really spend on anything.

    I realized that I CAN do what I'm doing for them, and way bigger things on my own. I don't need to work for anyone. I just need to learn the ropes and take action. That's why I'm here. I won't quit my job yet, I can do it, my parents still support me, but I don't want to go back to that. Even if that would save me a lot of time. I'm just going to do this in the free time until I can earn enough on my own to quit this shitty job.

    I'm interested mainly in mastering SEO and niche related website building strategies. But I want to learn about everything. Also, I want to get better with web design/ development, hopefully soon I'll be confident enough to sell my services.

    I don't know where the road will take me from now on, but so far it took me here.

    This was my short introduction. Nice to meet you all.

    You will get far, just keep up the good work and build your work ethics. You will soon be in a better place with a better girl getting tons of bread. I wish you luck my friend.

    Welcome to the Black Hat World. You are at the right place to learn and be a master of SEO.

    First of all, I want to thank you for leaving those unnecessary games which most of the people can't. You took the first step. You said you learned some basic HTML, it will help you when you do onpage SEO for many websites. Most important is your eagerness to learn more.

    The thing which I didn't like about you is you blamed your country. Don't do that, your country gave you many things which you are not seeing. Ask yourself, what you returned to your country so far ? nothing.

    Be optimistic, be goal oriented and be integrity oriented - you will be able to learn well and earn well also.

    Thank you
    Faisal

    Thanks everyone,

    @faisalmaximus , thank you for the feedback, games are indeed hard to leave, especially once you get really hooked up to them. About my country, I don't blame it for anything. I just admitted that I live in an underdeveloped country that pays really low compared to other top countries, but yes you are right. It could be far worse, and I should be thankful. I'm lucky. I have everything I could need.
