    Welcome to BHW. It sure was a long intro, but an interesting one, nonetheless. Are you striving to ultimately work at home, despite your previous failed attempts? Or are you truly content at your current job?

    Ultimately I'd like to work at home once again, preferably in something IM related. I put my previous failures down to a lack of experience and a lack of discipline. However, IM isn't everything to me, so I'm enjoying the job for the time being because it takes away the pressure. When you're still heavily in the learning stage there's always a chance things can go wrong of course, but the job means I can be heavily immersed in IM daily whether I like it or not, and the salary means I can try out say link building services or things like that with part of my salary without any chance of there not being food on the table or time out to relax and socialise. When I was piecing together a living from article writing, for example, it could reach the end of the month before all of the bills were even paid.

    I'm still young enough not to need the security of the job, but old enough to appreciate it and learn from it :)

    I'm in Birmingham, not the nicest place in the world but fortunately the accent doesn't come through on forums :D

    My flatmates from birmingham, and the accent is beyond annoying. Also supporting Aston Villa doesn't help lol

    Ah I check that box too, also a Villa fan! To be fair, no Google updates will ever be as stressful as the end of this season for me!

    Hi from a fellow Brummy, well Solihull but near enough :) I moved to Ireland a few years ago, I may as well be speaking dutch the way some of the shopkeepers look at me sometimes, and i never thought i had a strong accent!
