My Rubik’s Cube journey

My early Rubik’s Cube days
Learn the Rubik’s cube
I first saw the Rubik’s Cube craze in the 1980’s. Everyone talked about and loved the cube. I thirsted for a Rubik’s Cube. I soon bought one and enjoyed playing on it. The Rubik’s Cube was called The Ideal Cube then. They came in a nice looking cover.
Anyway I could soon solve the cube with the help of a friend. I became a speed cuber and could solve the cube in 27 seconds.
It’s a pity I wasn’t aware of the 1982 Rubik’s Cube World Championships. Because I was actually fast enough to qualify for it and compete.
I grew up in a children’s home and so my talent was just ignored.
If I’d been brought up by my parents then they’d have sought to reveal my talent. I have amazed many people by producing fast solves of the cube. In the 1980’s I also taught a few people to solve the Rubik’s Cube.
Many other Rubik’s puzzles have been invented since the Rubik’s Cube.
They inventions of these puzzles have obviously been inspired by the Rubik’s Cube. I solved all the other Rubik’s puzzles that were presented to me during the 1980’s.
The Rubik’s Cube ball was one of my favorite puzzles. I was surprised at the invention of the Rubik’s snake. Anyhow the cube craze soon died out.
By about 1983 the cube craze had died out. It didn’t re-emerge until about 2003. In 2003 I wasn’t aware that a Rubik’s Cube World Championships was being held. I next picked up a cube again in 2008.
Back playing the Rubik’s Cube
I practiced a lot and soon learnt my old skills and took advantage of the internet and made a few Rubik’s Cube tutorials. My love of speed cubing inspired me to make a lot of speed cubing videos in 2013.I uploaded about 100 of video to You Tube.
Later on in that year I focused mainly on making Rubik’s Cube tutorial videos. In September 2013, I uploaded my very best Rubik’s Cube tutorial video to You Tube.
Before that in 2009 I learnt faster solving methods of solving the Rubik’s Cube.
These methods included the Lars Petrus method and Fridrich method. In December of that year I advertised my video at You Tube. It did very well and will be very big one day.
In April 2014 I created a Rubik’s Cube website which went live in May 2014 and in July 2014 I wrote a Rubik’s Cube tutorial book. I included other activities in the book. In November 2014 I put my kindle and printed book on sale at Amazon.
I decided to make I made a DVD of my cube tutorial and also put it on sale at Amazon in January 2015.
Since 2015 I have been working on developing my website. I have also done lots of SEO work on my website and I have also bought a better website. Afterwards I created a Google Analytics account for my website and I have improved web pages, which Analytics indicated needed improving.
My site gets top class engagement and I’ve got an S E O firm doing work on my site. I’ve also bought some back links for my website. Furthermore I have increased the content in my website and it has now got about 33,000 words of quality content.
