Five Things About Yaro – I’ve Been Tagged Too!

By Yaro Starak
30 Comments

It’s possibly the most contagious “flu” going around this holiday season – the “five things” blog-tag game. I’ve been tagged numerous times now (thanks Tony, Igor, Luc and Sreejith) and it’s about time I acted on these requests to join the epidemic.

First though I had to find out who was responsible for this craze and as far as I can tell the person who deserves the blame, and a slap on the back for some nice link building work, is Jeff Pulver. This blog tag game a lovely case study on viral marketing in the blogosphere.

Yaro Wearing SunglassesThis is actually a reasonably hard activity for me since I’m pretty revealing about myself in this blog already, in particular my business timeline dissects much of my personal and professional life thus far. I apologise in advance if I cover old territory in this list.

Now without further ado – Five things you probably don’t know about Yaro…

  1. I am an only child. Yes that means I was spoilt rotten – actually no, I really wasn’t that spoilt, at least I don’t think I was compared to other children I’ve seen (it’s all relative) but certainly I can appreciate the mentality you form as a result of being an only child. In general I enjoy time by myself more than with other people, I have trouble negotiating things like cooking in the kitchen with others – I have to be in charge of that – and introversion is definitely a characteristic of mine. Whether I can lay the blame for these personality styles on the fact that I am only child I don’t know – but it seems relevant to me.
  2. I’m a star trek fan and proud of it!
  3. I’ve never had a full time job in my life. The closest I ever got to it was a permanent part time position, 20 hours per week, at a computer helpdesk, which lasted all of one month before I headed to Tasmania on a backpacking trip.
  4. I am not a vegetarian, I’ve never smoked pot or cigarettes or done any drugs – in fact I’ve never had any drugs like antibiotics in my life (up to this point anyway) – so just because I have long hair doesn’t mean I’m a hippy or have any hippy-esque tendencies people! Although I certainly think and discuss the meaning of life often enough to be considered spiritual – hmm, “new-agey” perhaps – no I don’t like that one either. I’m definitely more geek than hippy – but that’s enough labels, it’s clear they do not work well as a means to describe people.
  5. And finally, I was on the 1998 Magic: the Gathering World Championships Australian team, something I’m particularly proud of. Yes, “geek” is definitely the right label…

Well there you have it. I’m not sure who is left in the blogosphere who hasn’t done this five things tag game yet, but let me see… I tag Neil Shearing, Burt, Mike Filsaime, Rich Schefren and Suzanne Falter-Barnes.

  • Thanks for playing “blog-tag.” Nice to meet you…Jeff

  • Glad you joined in on the Christmas virus :) You forgot to mention (or didn’t notice) I tagged you too :( ;)

    Happy Christmas chap.

    Matt

  • Yaro is the King… blogosphere superstar :)

    i learn a lot from you …keep it up!

  • Hey, you got tagged once already, but I need to tag you again :D

    http://seedsforwealth.com/Blog/i-got-tagged-now-im-it/2006/

    Oh, just so you know, I started my site by your influence. thank you.

  • Yaro, I need some guidance from you. I launched my own website LittleSean.com. As of right now, I only have 2 articles, but I’m writing at least 2 times a week and it’ll get bigger. I read a lot of your articles, but I’m unsure how to go along and drive traffic to my website.

  • Ah ha… Yaro you finally broke down and did it! Good on ya. Nothing wrong with being an introverted, non-vegetarian who loves Star Trek. Long live the geeks :D

    Luc

  • Little Sean – please feel free to ask your question regarding traffic in my forums (see the forums tab at the top of this page).

    Matt – Sorry I missed your tag, it didn’t show up in my technorati referrals so I didn’t know about it.

    J.R. – I think I’ve had enough tagging games for now! Thanks anyway though.

    Luc – Yeah, I love geeks :)

  • No worries Yaro, could you give us a quick primer on the Technorati tags then – it’s not something I know all that much about. How about a mini “technorati tags for idiots” mini article ;)

    Matt

  • Matt – My opinion is don’t bother with Technorati tags. I have an ebook coming out soon that discusses tags (among other things). The book should answer most of your questions.

    Cheers,

    Yaro

  • Well, I am an only child too. That is one thing we have in common.

  • I always admire your adventurous spirit. The backpacking trip to Tasmania must have been wonderful! :)

  • Long hair or another hippy look will get you singled out at airports. Cops assume that long haired people are carrying drugs.

  • Yaro,

    I think the 5 things I don’t know about you makes you more human and yet, a very special individual. I can appreciate your ‘originality’. In fact, your story is truly touching to some extent, being an only child and yet, has done so much to enrich the lives of other around the globe.

    So, I’d say, keep being a “nerd”; ‘introvert’; trekkie; ‘spoilt’; ‘geek’- if that is what you wish to label your goodself – a good recipe I’d say to become a brilliant individual..

    Thanks Yaro, for being an inspiring individual.

  • Hi Yaro,

    I’m from brunei, I just found your website and I’m planning to set up a blog and gradually earn income from there but I’m a newbie to all this, do you recommend I enrol in your program? What should we do to be successful?

    Greatly appreciate your guidance! Thanks!
