All about me and this site ...

spanish olives

My name is Linda. That's me on the left with my favorite four-legged friend. Although I'm English, I've lived permanently on the Costa Blanca
in Spain for a good 25 years.

Most of that time I spent in the area's main tourist resort of Benidorm. But, some
5 years or so ago, we moved just outside, to the quieter town of Alfaz del Pi.

Before living in Spain, I worked in Brussels as a bilingual secretary - French and Spanish.

But my years on the Costa Blanca have been mainly dedicated to the travel and property industries.

Along with that, I've also been busy raising my daughter - Vicky - who is now 21.

Although of English parents, my daughter was born and raised out here in Spain, attending local Spanish state schools and colleges ... as a result, she now seems more Spanish than English!

Top Tour of Spain Was Born ...

As my daughter became older, she didn't need me so much and, for once, I had some spare time on my hands. If you're a mom, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!

I decided the time had come to take up a new hobby - I was going to build myself a website!

At this time, I knew very little about the Internet and absolutely nothing at all about building websites ... but the idea appealed me, and so I decided to go for it.

During my years here, I'd amassed a tremendous amount of useful knowledge about Spain and the Spanish language - travel, culture, property, living here, bringing up children here ...

Moreover, Spain and the Spanish people had been absolutely wonderful to me ... and I felt a strong urge and need to spread the word about them, as a sort of homage.

The aim of the site was - and still is - to give as much helpful information and advice about every aspect of Spain to you as I can. And, of course, to introduce you to the beautiful, romantic Castilian Spanish language.

Hobby Site Becomes Profitable ...

While this site was always intended to be for fun, I found out I could also make money with it at the same time. As I worked on the site and added new pages, I noticed that my traffic slowly started going up as well.

You may have noticed those "Ads by Google" ads on most of my pages. Every time a visitor comes in and clicks on one of those ads, I earn money from that click.

I've also written and sold ebooks. But, I didn't start doing that until much later when I had a good amount of traffic and had some pretty decent earnings coming in.

I used a tool called Site Build It! to build this site. I have almost no technical knowledge whatsoever, so thankfully I didn't need any because Site Build It! automatically provides you with a site template and everything else you need to get started.

If you are interested in learning more about Site Build It!, I would encourage you to check out their Video Tour which gives you an idea of how it all works. You can also check out the hundreds of successful websites that have been built with it (you can see my site in the Travel section!).

I've been fortunate enough that this site has now become my main source of income! I can now do what I want, whenever I want, and the site stays running nonstop earning me income while I enjoy everything that Spain has to offer.

Top Tour of Spain's Future ...

I have tons of exciting things planned for the site's future - more powerful information ... unique and affordable products.

So, I guess I'll just continue living in the place I love, writing about the subject I love, and expanding the business.

Life is good when you work at following your dreams ...

So, now you know all about me!
