About Nomda Ploom
Joined January 2014
I am Andy from south east England UK.
It is just dawning on me that my username is unnecessarily smart *rse as we brits say.....Nomda Ploom is a phonetic rendition of nom de plume, or pen name. if you will. Crikey, what a plank am I...

I should mention that my life maxim is "one person's fish is another person's poisson" oh the benefits of being in the Eurozone....ya gotta love it. My Google Plus profile is over at https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AndrewDowningonline and goodness only knows I need to ramp this up!

My situation is perhaps unusual in that I have had to take an enforced change of direction as I am presently supporting my parents in their twilight years. Dad has very advanced Vascular Dementia, and mum is getting very frail. Curve ball indeed...

Offering a comparatively recently acquired skill set out to the ether to help others and grease the wheels: video creation and editing, together with optimisation, HTML websites creation, WordPress sites ditto, content creation- articles, videos, pods, logos, graphics, brochures, e-books, etc. Pretty familiar with most of the value adding WordPress plugins, and how to configure and use them..I build WordPress sites using the Headway Themes drag and drop process, so I can pretty much deliver up what people want, look and feel wise....

Recently into design core elements and writing for the net, can reference some useful texts for others- IT IS JUST A PITY THAT I HAVEN'T FOLLOWED PROTOCOLS HERE :-)

AM I SELLING MYSELF YET? Having to suspend my adherence to the Groucho Marx maxim "I wouldn't want to belong to any club that would have me as a member" tendancies

I came to this solution via a circuitous route (British English spoken here), and have a range of skills and capabilities, but need to put them into a bigger picture. I spent a previous working life in child protection services, and most of my latter time there in court settings, constructing cases, giving evidence and honing my analytical skills en route.
I have set up a number of WordPress based sites, mainly for local and smaller businesses. I have written a large number of articles, to help their SEO cause, and regard myself primarily as a content creator, curator, and presenter.
I studied languages at school and this is one area of interest that has stayed with me.
Live south east coast in England UK, if you talk to me, I will talk back.

A bit more about me:
Runner, swimmer, bicyclist, and sometimes put the three together
Linguist (French and German) can stretch to American English if pressed
Culture junkie
Cook a lot to counteract exercise munchies
Red wine, Prosecco not champagne
Scotch, and nothing in it (I would ask the air to get the heck out, if I could)
Jack of all trades, need to master this one, I am presently drowning, not waving folks
Politeness freak but value direct opinions, and can be rude when called for

See you on the inside, all the best for 2014, Andy

Andy, I have spent a good part of the morning having a couple of cups of coffee and just sort of soaking up some of your posts and pearls that you have scattered here and there. For those of you with so much knowledge and wisdom in some of these areas I doubt that you can even imagine how valuable some of your posts and thoughts and suggestions can be to those of us who are still sort of like fish flopping around out of water and on the bank. Your suggestions and posts are always so clear and "to the point". I hope you will consider more. Thanks for what you have already contributed.

Harold, a casually constructed and received with relish comment- thank you so much. I like the visual analogies in your writing, and you might do well to remember that whilst some of have to cultivate a writing style, others apparently have it in spades. Write content, be authentic and your audience will find you. See you around the place. Very best wishes Harold, Andy

Andy, I wrote my first blog last night. It was meant to be a draft that I could continue but I was encouraged to post it as is so i did. I would value your honest critique, thanks, Jim
Reply
nomda ploom Premium
Genuine and stylish- authenticity will carry you far, match it with passion and you will bust through obstacles with ease. Good job, and I completely agree with posting "as is" in that perfectionism is another word for procrastination- at least as far as our subconscious is concerned, so you avoided that one. Keep it up, consistency will result in greater learning and development yet, if that helps.....
Reply

It does help, and I value your feedback. My second blog I wrote a few days ago depicts my passion. I am a bit stuck on my website. I'm a slow learner, but I'm getting there. I'm so grateful for this opportunity, even at this time in my life. I appreciate you. Jim

While life has thrown some curve balls my way, I keep paying for WA and intend to get back into the saddle, sooner I hope than later. Just want you to know I have been looking for you and sincerely hoping that YOU are okay.

PM me when you get a chance!!!

Yours in this life's challenges while we strive to keep our heads up and WA in our 'learning curve'.

How long before I get traffic? Do you know? Is there a way to get it going? Just a few questions I have for a webmaster such as yourself. I am only three weeks into my membership here yet this is the place for me. If you could allow me the privilege of your expertise, I would be most appreciative. Also, if I could be of some assistance to you, please feel free to ask. I learn fast.
Reply
nomda ploom Premium
hi, I did not set out to rank, I major on being me, which translated in practice to my being a "helper"...glad I got that cleared up..

Traffic is nothing without conversions. It should be called good traffic- warm buyers if possible. This scenario generally takes up to a number of months to achieve across a bunch of keywords. Once you rank for a number of words, and your metrics are good, then others stick like velcro fuzzies and it all kinda builds..
It is all incremental low hanging fruit traffic can start within weeks, but only if you have a habit of posting frequently and writing engaging content to bolster you site generally..

The training does link it all together trust in that- and focus on being the best you can.

Traffic and buyers are a consequence of this. Provide value- there are a lot of trainings, both written and video on this stuff.

PM me and other members if you get stuck and you have your question formed and bounded to help the person you send the message to.

Cheers, Andy

Nice post Andy. I'm sort of in a similar position, had a few bad years for a number of reasons and decided to chase a long time dream of mine of earning a living through affiliate marketing, as we Brits call it.

Getting there? I'm not sure sometimes. Every day I ask myself if I've taken on too big a task but then I look at the big boys and tell myself "Well they did it, why can't I?" At 54 I need to get a move on though, learned so much here but a long way to go yet. Good luck.

After reading about colors by nomari357, and reading your answer, how do I figure out my colors? By what is the strongest to the weakest description? Being a designer this should come easier to you! Not sure why, but it sure got me curious.
Reply
nomda ploom Premium
hi- i read the post that it was trying to help us figure out the personality of our visitors, and yes, I can see why you might be interested in finding out how you/we all tick, and what colour we might be.

This is a reach, however I would place you as...mainly blue, in that you are a great networker, the rest is probably mainly red, as you like order which is about control/power- and not in a negative sense...the
rest is the fun and the observational sides of you...There are subconscious cues in respect of colour, and design, but it is complex and basically, if it feels right for you, that is the best place to start and possibly end!
http://colormatters.com is a site I reference...

The post was an abstraction as it was focusing on physical attendees, and the colours thing is a metaphor. It is a way of assessing personality, if I read it right.

None of us are going to be exclusively one colour or another. We are all combinations..

I don't think that the content has any direct implications for practice-or design, just a thinking aide.

We have to cover most our bases, and I reckon that some video, pictures, and preferably sliders and a good helping of written content is enough to incorporate design wise...

Cheers, Andy

Thanks Andy, don't know why but having an opinion helps! Maybe more of a fear of not belonging in any category. I did not like the red alone. I am not power hungry in the normal sense of the word, or I would have made a great politician. My desire for power is to be able to use it to create harmony. I usually make a great mediator. Blue was not sitting in the front row, where I could hear and absorb the information being shared at max. I love to network, but I am unusually shy in situations unknown to me, unless I am the presenter, then for some reason, I can talk to anybody. Sometimes I look at myself from afar and wonder, who is that person, so different at each turn. Most people tend to be somewhat standard, either always outgoing or shy, always looking elegant or always blue jeans. I wonder what in the world shaped my life to make it seem so different!
BTW, the link is very interesting!
