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
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
