About the edweird.com blog and it’s author

Thanks for visiting my blog.  My name is Ed.  Please allow me to introduce myself.

I’ve worked in the tech industry teaching technical and sales classes for 15 years.  Prior to that I worked in various IT roles at a major medical testing corporation over 16 years.  I’m currently looking for my next career opportunity, and taking time to learn new things like blogging, playing my synthesizer, and more Spanish vocabulary.

I am a world traveler both from business and pleasure trips.  26 different countries visited so far.  I’m always looking forward to my next trip.  I would like to add Africa to the list of continents I’ve visited.  I’ve gone lots of different places, and done many fun and interesting things things. I have lots of stories to tell and observations to share.  I live and work in Florida, USA when I’m not on vacation.

I’ve been saving money since I was in my mid-twenties.  I maintained this habit and have benefited from great credit scores and low interest rates.  When my income was interrupted by layoffs, I was able to use my savings to pay bills while searching for my next job.  I have been investing for a long time, and day trading for about two years.

My pants are tight from too much food and drink.  I need to exercise more than I do.  I like trying beers and foods that are new to me, especially when I travel.  I take pictures of my food sometimes before I eat it.

Getting more for less money is something I spend time researching, and really enjoy doing.

Why did I create this blog?

I wanted to learn WordPress and things related to online search engines and advertising.  I had two domains that I was only using for email hosting, and felt I should add a web presence to them.  I realized that much of the things I read each day on the internet were being delivered to me by blogging websites, and that I have stories and information that I think is worth sharing with others.

I also write another blog that’s focused on Technology, Gaming, and Entertainment.  There’s a link to it at the top of all of the pages on this blog.
