Hi, thanks for visiting! My real world name is Dean Walsh and I am from Birmingham, England, the city of a thousand trades.

I am an electrician with an interest in hobby electronics, hence the username. But in actual fact, I make my money through the internet now, trading in digital currencies like Bitcoin, writing for various sites like Hubpages, and taking the odd freelance job - anything to avoid having to set my alarm in the morning to go to work at a real job! I'm not getting rich from it, but I love the freedom.

I love technology and gadgets and stuff, so that is mostly what I write about on Hubpages. I like trying to make technical subjects more accessible to non-technical people, so you'll find lots of beginners guides and articles to introduce you to new subjects - hope you find them interesting!

        Digital Currency Payments

        3 years ago

        Since we hubbers are making our money here digitally, it would be great if Hubpages could send us payments from the ad program in digital currency using Bitcoin, or even better Ripple.Either of these would have lower...

        New Hubs by Topic

        3 years ago

        I like finding new hubs to read through the topic pages, but often I end up going back to the same topics which I'm interested in and finding very few new hubs - it would be nice if there was a section on the topic...

        Comments and SEO

        The comments capsule in hubpages lets you choose whether to display all comments or just the most recent 5, 20, 50 etc. Does anyone know which option, if any, is better for SEO?I think I'm right in saying that comments...

        How Do You Motivate Yourself for a Challenge?

        3 years ago

        I've had a fairly prolific start to my Hubpages writing career, publishing 13 hubs in my first 10 days (including a few over 2000 words) out of the excitement of starting something new. But as the 'newness' starts to...

        Is 2500 Words Too Long for a Hub?

        3 years ago

        I'm working on a hub providing a beginners guide to programming languages and its getting quite long - I'm definitely going to hit 2000 words with it and will probably go up to 2500 unless I really make an effort to...
