pkmcr is Paul Duxbury

by pkmcr

An insight into the name that is the brand. pkmcr is Paul Duxbury and I have been using the name across the internet for more years than I care to remember. Learn more about me!

The name originated because it is a combination of the initial letters of my name, my partner's name and our location at the time it was first created, more years ago than I care to remember.

In my professional life I have spent many years working in Learning and Development, Coaching and Human Resources.

I am truly passionate about making a difference wherever I can. I work in the not for profit sector, where I support the delivery of services which enable individuals and organisations to make a difference in their own lives.

Writing for Profit

I started creating websites and forums for people to share information, many years ago because of my passion for Genealogy and tracing my own Family History.

I recognised that there was a need for more support for people online in terms of Family History research.  It was that which led my partner and I to create what was to become the most successful Genealogy Group on MSN.

The Group had reached in excess of 1,000 members which made us realize the enormous potential for connecting people and helping them which the internet offered.

In those early days, we realised that there was a real need for high quality information.  What also became clear was that by providing for the needs of an information hungry online population you could generate additional income at the same time.  As time moved on I realised that the opportunities that writing for profit provided were enormous and that the internet was changing at incredible speed.

Looking back on those early days and remembering the learning, time and effort that was involved in creating our very first site under the name pkmcr it's amazing how far we have come! 

Some of those blogs are showcased below and more will be added in due course.  Many will know me from Squidoo, Hubpages and of course now Wizzley all of which enable me to engage in my interest in writing for profit.

Wizzley is the new kid on the online block for Writers. One of the questions I am frequently asked is how does it compare with Squidoo? Let's take a look!
The Smurfs have come into their own again as characters for Halloween Costumes with the 2011 movie. Why not choose a Smurfs Halloween Costume and turn yourself blue for Halloween?

On a Personal Note

Anyone who knows me online will have heard me refer to Charlie or Charlie_Cat.

Charlie, as you may have guessed is a Cat! After a troubled life he came to join us about three and half years ago.

He is a beautiful boy (who knows it!) and is a rescue cat who came from our local RSPCA centre and he has brought a great deal of laughter, affection and joy to our home.

He is hopelessly devoted to me and if truth be told me to him!  But just look at that picture and draw your own conclusion - he's amazing isn't he!

I feel that I know you well from Squidoo, getting to know a person again is sometimes difficult. This is a great idea.

It's been a pleasure getting to know you and your work, Paul. Your advice and support are greatly appreciated.

Paul, thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. It is a fun way to get to know you. Your Charlie is a sweetheart, and I swear I can hear him purring! One thing is certain, my nose is itching! Allergies never stopped me, cat lover that I am, though we are without feline these days. Looking forward to more from you.

Paul, I'm going to have to check out your genealogy sites. I've put my research temporarily on the shelf...I've hit walls I can't climb over. Nice to see you here. Best to you!

petunia on 06/06/2011

Paul, you know I am one of your biggest fans. I learn from you over and over again and I thank you!
And from your many pages here already, I think you agree with me - this Wizzley site is going to be amazing!!!!!!!

Ah now I know why the kitty picture over at Squidoo ;)

mulberry on 06/05/2011

I think I've met Charlie through a lens before. He is a lovely cat. But, be warned taking in rescue cats or any homeless cat can be addictive!

Aw, a cat lover! Nice to see you here and I look forward to more of your wizzlies.
