Hi, my name is Tom and I’m a full time blogger, digital marketing, and social media professional!  I am so glad that you clicked the “about me” link, now we can connect!  This is something that I have found that is crucial in making me successful in the past, and I want to continue doing it with you now!

Ok, now let me tell you a little about myself!

I am from Richlands, Virginia.  A little town set way back in the mountains.  You could definitely call me a hillbilly too as my accent is very twangy.  I have a wife and two small kids, Matthew, who is 3, and Michael is 6 months old as of January 12, 2013…

I used to be a coal miner.  Making a living by working underground every day.  One day, I was hurt very badly underground and couldn’t work anymore because I basically crushed my knee, leaving myself impaired and unable to make any money for my family!

Since I was unable to work or make money, I had to do something!  I basically knew nothing about the internet or the tricks that you always hear people talk about to make money online, but I always knew that the internet was a source for online money making endeavors so I took the plunge and created a website thinking that I would be rich in about a month.

Needless to say, that never happened.  I found myself one month later at the realization that I was going to have to actually put some effort into this if I wanted to succeed.

So with the writing skills of a fish and the ideas that didn’t succeed those past of a monkey, I started to really throw myself into blogging.  It wasn’t until 5 months into the whole process that I realized I was throwing myself into the “social media” niche.

Having learned a few things since I first started, I knew enough to narrow that niche.  But what??  I literally wracked my brain as I made connection after connection, and built friendships all across the country and the world with like-minded social media enthusiasts.  My wife was the one who actually reached up and turned the light on for me.  My niche was relationships.

There isn’t a place that I can’t go that I don’t make a friend.  Heck, even in February, a person told me on Twitter that I was annoying them with my tweets, I had a discussion with the person, and by the end of the conversation, I had them won over as a friend!

With my ever trusty notepad in my pocket I literally wrote down everything that came to me that I could blog about that related to social media.  Do I make a lot of money by blogging?  No, I’m not there yet, I probably make above average for a blogger that’s only been doing it for nine months with this blog.  However, I will tell you that I think I’m the only person to get a blog this young to be nominated for the final cut in SocialMediaJournal’s Top Ten Social Media Blogs of 2015!  A nomination that I am honored to get!

I want to help you.  I want to build on our relationship together.  Because we can’t make it without each other!
