Wondering what this site is all about?  Let me explain…

So who the hell is this Action Geek guy?

My name is Billy, and I’m a geek with a love of life and adventure.  I live in Cornwall, England and live with my wife, two dogs, several tarantulas and a boa constrictor!  I’m bit of a techie, I run a small web/game development company called Kernow Web Designs, and I’m interested in computers, technology, travel, adventure, adrenaline and endurance!

Why am I blogging?

Good question.  I’m a web designer/developer and so many people seem to think I set this blog up to make money – but unfortunately not!  I do make money from websites, but I can tell you from experience that personal blogs like this are not money makers – there are much, much easier ways of generating an online income!

The primary reason for this blog is to help me focus on, and achieve my goals.  It’s a fact that for most people, making their goals public (i.e. telling as many people as possible) has a psychological effect which pushes them towards those goals – in essence, the more people you tell about a goal of challenge, the more likely you are to see it through and achieve whatever it is you’re aiming for.  That’s the main reason I’m blogging – to share my goals, my challenges, and keep my training and moving forwards.

The second reason I’m blogging is to network, to hopefully find other people all over the world with similar goals and aspirations.  Bloggers, in my experience, tend to be rather social and blogs by their very nature encourage conversation.  So, if you’ve done any of the thinks on my list, or you’re training for the same goals, or you want to try something I’ve already done, or you just want to say hi then please, leave a comment on any of my posts!

Can I contact you?

Well, that depends!  If you want to get in touch to tell me you love my blog (!), or to let me know about a cool challenge you think I might be interested in, or to ask me a question about one of my posts then yes, please contact me here or leave a comment on the blog and I’ll do my best to get back to you ASAP, or you can send me a Tweet or reach me via Instagram. If it’s a work (game development) related query then please reach out to me at my personal portfolio site www.billydeakin.com or via our studio at www.artofplaygames.com

If on the other hand you hate my blog and want to tell me I’m an idiot, or you want to “get my site to the top of Google”, or let me know I won $10,000,000 in an e-lottery and need my bank details to pay me then please do us both a favour and don’t bother – go and bug someone else!

Hope that answered your questions, if not then send me a message, or check out my goals and challenges on THE LIST page.
