Rob McGuire

Hi, I’m Rob McGuire (if you couldn’t tell already) and I am the voice behind this blog. I’m a dabbler of all things geeky. Whether it’s building and customizing blogs and websites, or building a Linux system from scratch, I’ve done it and most everything in between.  There is a wide variety of things that interest me on the internet, and my passions often change more often than some people change their underwear.  I have a graveyard of old websites and blogs to prove that point. I tend to move fast and make sudden stops, so be careful if you’re alone for the ride.

A little about me

I’m a freelance web developer/web designer/SEO specialist by trade.  That’s quite the job description, but until a more suitable job title comes along that one will have to do.  I have been working in this field for over 10 years and have had the privilege of working for budding bloggers, big name brands, and everything in between.

I have also done a fair amount of tinkering with software programming and server administration.  Shortly after building my first website I decided that I didn’t want to pay for hosting, so I quickly learned how to design and configure a Linux based web server and email server.  I commandeered an old computer from a friend of mine to use as a server and then fired my web host.

Before going freelance, I worked for an online wholesaler building and maintaining their websites. I worked there for almost a year, and have been on my own ever since.

Most of my interests and hobbies revolve around tech and the internet, but when I escape from that world I can usually be found hanging out in a coffee shop, at the gym (if I can find motivation), or rooting for the Oregon State Beavers.

Let’s start the show

My hope is that you find this blog to be helpful, thoughtful, and if I’m lucky, entertaining.  My virtual door is always open, and I can be reached a couple different ways.  You can hit me up on Twitter, find me on Google + or head on over to my contact page.  I must warn you though; if you email me, you might get a response back.
