Hi there, my friend!
I hope you’re doing fine and I thank you so much for coming and visiting my “About Me” page to learn who I am.
Who Are You, Dude?
My name is Luis “Louie Luc” Correia — go ahead, just call me Louie, please — and I’m from that beautiful sunny country in Europe with INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS food called Portugal.
You’re invited to come and visit and you’ll be most welcomed.
We, the Portuguese people, just LOVE to show our own little world to our guests.
On the left you’ll find my picture.
Do I look too serious?
Don’t worry, I usually smile much more. 🙂 (Just trying to look good for the photo…)
What’s Your Background, Louie?
I’ve been in love with the Internet since I first got online in early 1999 (I actually first surfed the web on December 31st, 1998. I can’t believe how time flew by…).
What I Thought Search Engines Were
At the time, there was no Google or Bing.
The most famous search engine was Altavista and I thought search engines could answer any question we asked them… (really silly, huh?!).
That’s what I did.
I searched for “what’s my name?” (in Portuguese, “qual é o meu nome?”) and the first site I visited was from a girl whose name was Ana (obrigado Ana!).
«She is just a student and she has her own website…?» — I thought to myself.
It was not a site owned by a company and developed by team of hundreds of expert computer programmers and web developers.
«Wait a minute… If a student can own a site so can I!» — my world had just changed forever.
This Is How It All Started For Me
In that moment in time, something inside me made me want to have my own website.
Somehow, right from the start, I looked at the Internet as a great opportunity to build an audience around content I produced (written text and much more).
I probably didn’t know it at the time (or maybe I did, it’s just been too long…), but I looked at it as a way to earn money online.
My First Website
Owning a website represented much like owning my own television channel.
Thousands of raving fans would come and visit it and I’d give them their best possible online experience.
It’s no wonder I called my first site… MEGA SITE!
My First Earnings Online
It did not take long to start making money on the Internet either.
(It was easy back then, but those days of ease are long gone.)
By the years 2000 and 2001, I made more than $10,000 promoting online casinos as an affiliate.
My Viral-News Website Experience
I enjoyed building websites so much, having lots of visitors and giving people what they were looking for (and also, I won’t lie, getting some income out of it) that this was the path I decided to follow for the last so many years.
Recently, I’ve been more deeply connected with the viral-news website online business model (monetized with Google AdSense — my best day so far I made €75 from Google’s display ads alone).
But, unfortunately, one of those viral-news websites failed BIG TIME.
My Other Skills
I have a college degree in Marketing — thanks to what I was learning on my sites and online businesses I was able to get better grades.
I also became a web developer.
I learned at home by myself during school, read tons of books and took a few courses (to get my certifications) after finishing college.
I have even developed some of my own websites from scratch (believe it or not, I’m not the biggest WordPress fan, but I see its amazing potential, obviously) and…
I also became cartoonist on the side. 🙂
Why Oh Why You Started The Buzz Nitrous Blog, Mister?
I’ve been blogging for more than 10 years now in my native language and decided to start this new blog in English to expand my audience worldwide.
I decided to pick up a topic that I know many people struggle to find good information about and build a blog around it offering people help and expertise (hopefully).
What Can You Promise?
In order for me to write about something I search, research, learn, comprehend, test and confirm everything prior to finally writing about it.
I will not guess or write just to write nor will fool anyone into thinking I know something that I really don’t. I’m a fair and honest dude.
I’ll try to be as transparent as I can.
