My Scottish friend Robert-A
For this interview, I have sent Robert 25 questions and asked him: “Can you pick out 10 questions to answer?” Robert lives in Scotland and as a real Scotsman, he likes the traditional dish, Haggis. I have met him online about 1,5 year ago. And ever since we have almost daily contact. He is always willing to help anyone who needs assistance. Scotland is on my bucket list to visit, so I am sure we will meet in person someday.
*Note of Loes: I looked up the ingredients of Haggis and this contains heart, liver, and lungs, minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt. Not the most attractive dish for a veggie like me 😉
2005 when WordPress first came out. From then on for the next 7 years, I built websites to sell on to other people and made quite a good living out off it. The websites were easy to build in those early years and were very basic.

Most of the time I help out my two daughters with various bills and
for holidays. I also buy things for my own apartment.
I visit my 90-year-old mother and run errands for her because after she fell and broke her hip she has to use walking sticks or a rollator now but can’t get around like she used to. I also visit my girls as often as I can to see my grandchildren.
Winning isn’t important to me as long as I know I did my best. Doing one’s best in this life is really all one can expect and as someone once said – it’s not the winning but the taking part that counts.
I’m honest as the day is long, I speak my mind, I’m good with people (communicator) and was a trainer for many years in the government department I work in.
For me personally, it’s not knowing when to stop.
Have I said enough or was there more I could have said.
Is the message I want to get across clear and concise.
So you publish anyway and hope it does what its supposed to do.
Research your content and make it relevant to the subject. Too many people go off on a tangent and write stuff that bears little relevance to what they started off writing about. Stick to the point of your title and you can’t go far wrong.
Treat people the way you like to be treated yourself, and that is with respect. Talk to people and not down to them and they will give you this respect and due consideration.
Not marrying my oldest daughters mother 46 years ago. She died last year so there’s nothing I can do about it now. But I was there for her with our daughter at the end.
People who do not keep their word. This is a biggie for me. I really don’t like people who tell you they will do this, that or the other while knowing they have no intention of doing so.
Thank you very much, Robert, for participating in this interview series. And giving us a view into your personal life.
