I'M AARON ROBBINS, AN ONLINE CONTENT CREATOR & WORDPRESS DEVELOPER
Website Design & Management
Websites remain the digital foundation of any initiative. For the last 2 decades I’ve been developing websites. Thousands of them. It’s been a lot of fun and it’s provided me with a comprehensive skill set which includes: marketing, copywriting, database administration, custom coded solutions, content management systems, learning management systems, campaign management, e-commerce, fundraising and analytics.
YouTube & Video Production
It’s estimated that over 300 hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every minute. Even with that level of competition video remains an excellent medium to communicate with your audience. I have a degree in Character Animation and have enjoyed producing documentary, animated and training content for YouTube, some of which has been licensed by NatGeo.
From California with
In my spare time I enjoy reading and writing about California’s entrepreneurial history. I have written extensively about the people, products and ideas that were developed in California from theme parks to hot tubs, salads and vending machines. I was born and raised in California and have a big ol’ heart for the Golden State.
One afternoon in the late 90’s I left my house with no idea where I was headed. I’d grown up without becoming anything I’d ever wanted to be. I ended up at a Borders Bookstore to browse their selection of software magazines. On a bookshelf just behind the magazine rack, a 12 tape, clamshell packed, cellophane wrapped VHS training series on HTML grabbed my attention. The tapes were priced at $149, well beyond my bookstore budget. I bought them anyway and ran home to pop the first tape into the VCR. A few seconds later a man and woman dressed in business clothes and standing behind a newscaster’s desk appeared on screen. A few tapes later I finally became exactly what I’d always wanted to be.
Since that day I’ve made my living building website, apps, video games, publishing platforms and podcasts. It’s ironic that bookstores were put out of business by the very information found in the books they sold. It’s easy to champion the selection of Amazon while scoffing at brick and mortar stores. I do it myself, but then I remember, lots of us are who we are because of something hidden on a bookstore shelf. Thank you Borders…and Waldenbooks.
