All the boring stuff
I am essentially a simple guy who loves to sit behind a computer. At the moment, I am a Search Marketing Manager so I'm at the computer 8 hours a day and sometimes more if I get on my computer in the evenings. I love to read and learn more about the different SEO strategies, tips, tools, techniques, web development tips and such. I have been into web design, development, SEO and SEM for a while now and I thought that it would be good to share what I have learned and what I'm continually learning about these things. I know that there are a lot of better blogs and experts out there who could give better SEO tips, SEO tutorials and SEO tools that work in this field, but I just want to share my experiences in doing SEO and what I found works and does not.

The more-detailed stuff
My name is Weslee Trout and I have been living in the Philippines since 2002. Our family moved here because my parents came here as missionaries and we have been living here since. I was pretty much home-schooled most of my elementary and high school years. I took up 1 semester of Marine Engineering in Ozamiz City, Mindanao, then I came to Manila to study at Asia Baptist Bible College where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Theology. I love studying and learning more, so I took up 2 Certificate Courses with Biblical Training and Western Seminary and earned a Certificate for Foundations in Biblical Studies and for Foundations in Christian Theology. I love multimedia and so I went again and studied and eventually earned my Diploma in Multimedia Development and Diploma in Social Media Marketing. I may have earned these certificates but education is not all about certificates, but it is about what we learn and how we apply those things we learn. I want to learn more so that I can also teach it to others that's why I study at every given chance. I got married in March of 2014 to the most amazing, loving, caring and beautiful person in the world, Claude, and I love every moment and day that we spend together. Did I forget to mention that we have 2 dogs? They are sometimes in the way, but I still love them very much (and spoil them when I can). I started WANTProductions (a digital consultancy agency) in 2009 and it grew, but decided to stop it for now and focus on my current role at Manulife Philippines.
So that is pretty much about me, if you want to grab a coffee and talk about theology, SEO, technology or anything else lemme know.
