Mark Thompson (Street Articles Author)

Hi, I recently was paid off from working in a fishing tackle and shooting shop and was having a hard time getting interviews with the current economic climate when a friend showed me an ad for making money with "Internet Marketing". I have to say I was doubtful at first thinking.... "It was too good to be true", "Surely everyone is at it", but I have to admit I was curious. So I started my journey, step by step. I scanned the web searching for advice, after a few weeks I came across The Bum Marketing Technique. where I learned a few things more. From there I joined the Wealthy Affiliate University and later signed up to Street Articles.

It hasn't been easy although I was paid off I landed a six month covering job with another friend and while working during the day I would then sit another few hours at night trying to learn new skills. I should point out that I have an IT back ground and have some skills in web page development, hosting and search engine optimization so the technical stuff is not over whelming but having to learn how to write has been a new experience altogether for me.

As my passion is fishing I decided to work on that niche to share my knowledge and hopefully make new friends along the way. Tight Lines!
