Update – August 2014

Thank you all for your support in my efforts to become a writer. Things have been a little quiet around here lately, so I thought I’d give you a quick update as to why.


I have been BUSY. All kinds of busy, but good busy.

That last paragraph was probably some of the worst English I’ve ever written, but it gets the message across, which is all I care about at this point!

Since the release of Web Hosting For Dummies, I’ve had a number of companies contact me about doing work for them and have had fun making video as well as writing for a few different people.

I’ve also continued to speak at conferences and am aiming mainly teaching web concepts and how web technologies work, to enable people to get a better grasp of what they’re doing with their websites.

The other major change in my life is that I now teach computers at a local school, teaching kids aged 5-13 everything from how to use a mouse through to how to use 3d printers – and everything in between. I even have a dream of being the first school in our county to put a satellite into space (It costs about $8000 and we’re looking for sponsors!)

Web Hosting For Dummies is still selling (slowly) but it’s fun to find it in book stores when I go to other cities!

Photo's by Peter PollockI do still blog, I write reviews over on ThatEnglishGeek.com and have started blogging photos from photo shoots I try to do whenever we go anywhere interesting at photo.peterpollock.com.

As usual, I have plans for blog series’ to appear on here, but as usual, they’re taking longer to come to fruition than any normal person would ever envision.

I’ll let you know when they get written, but until then, I’m still here and if you need any help with understanding your web hosting or anything like that, drop me a line and I’ll try to help!


I am a blogger, author, stay at home dad, speaker, web hosting trainer and geek (I was so excited to get an iPad that I actually made up a song and dance about it). I am English by birth, but currently live in California with my wife and our three children. I ran a web hosting business for nine years and found that many, if not most of my clients had never learned how to use any of the functions associated with hosting so I wrote a book to try and teach just those skills. I must admit to having fallen in love with WordPress (possibly a little TOO much) and I honestly find it hard to understand why anyone would use anything different to build a site! WordPress is wonderful! My passion is to help others achieve their goals with their websites/blogs. I believe that, with a little help, anyone can have an awesome site.

  1. $8,000 is amazingly cheap to put a satellite into space! How much fun (and learning, of course would that be for the children – just building a satellite would be incredible) enjoy next term and all your projects.
