As a reminder, the purpose of this series is to “introduce bloggers to more of their peers in the blogosphere and likely offer new opportunities to make friends, build collaborations, and get more traffic for your own blog.” Famous Bloggers Roundup #3 continues that “What’s Up, Bloggers!” series by introducing you to David Leonhardt.
Suggested Tool for Bloggers
This week, the blogger tool recommendation comes from our featured blogger, Roxana Nasoi, whom you will meet in just a moment. Here is her suggestion, in her own words:
“MonitorBacklinks – coupon is OFF50NHT3CAHU Users that use this coupon to subscribe to Monitor Backlinks will get first 3 months at the price of 1 (that is 67% off).”
Hey, that is not too bad. I believe where Roxana would like to send you, to get that great deal (and find out for yourself, the SEO benefits of monitoring your backlinks) is monitorbacklinks.com.
As Roxana describes herself, “I’m stubborn by definition and always love a good challenge. I can’t deal with life being as simple as pie, because I can’t really tolerate pie. I’m a proud Type 1 Diabetic since 1995, and an online entrepreneur since 2008.
Currently the ambassador of Upwork (the freelancing platform) in Romania since May 2015, and former Elance ambassador in Romania between 2012-2015.
I love numbers and statistics has been my first love, really. Data analysis keeps me geeky, and marketing keeps me creative.
In my free time, I write prose and poetry, compose song lyrics. I love reading mystery stories and am a sucker for Chuck Palahniuk’s novels (the creator of Fight Club), as well as watching movies. I run in the park like crazy, dance even more, tango all the time and do ballet in private. I enjoy traveling to other countries under the self-proclaimed movement of ‘#freelancinglifestyle #becauseIcan.'”
As Roxana continues, “In Bucharest, I have a couple of circles of friends, natives and foreigners who always remind me how great life is. I wake up each morning with a reminder on my phone to ‘Smile everyday,’ and I tell myself: ‘I love making money.’ Then I head out to a cafe or my office (which is just above the cafe where I’ve been a regular for about three years).
Each year, I have a ‘non-profit’ program where I find one startup, cafe, or university group, and work with them, teaching them branding, freelancing, or organizing events with them. It’s been going on for four years now.
What else? People say I’m an inspiration to them, and I’m always told that I ‘give off good vibes.’ Sometimes, when I’m alone, I paint/draw.”
Some of Roxana’s Accomplishments
- Cover story in one of Romania’s best business magazines in February 2013, named “Freelancer with a CEO Salary;”
- About 20 media mentions in national TV, national radio, national online and print business and women’s magazines;
- Considered a Social Media Influencer.
Roxana’s Future aspirations
“I’m currently working on growing our local community of Upwork freelancers in Romania with online and offline events. I’m looking to partner up and teach online marketing to students. I’m working on a new business model (keep your eyes open on SERPlified.com, changes ahead).”
