At this special time, when Facebook turns 10 it is time for me to celebrate by deleting my account. I realise that it literally serves no meaningful purpose any more - I don't update it, I don't add content to it and I barely review what anybody else is adding. Facebook - I feel pretty confident I will never be back (this time!)

Introduction

I’m Ben Rush, born and raised in the UK and now living in an awesome little shoebox apartment in the city centre of Singapore. I make a living from search engine marketing (SEO & PPC) which along with the wider online arena has been my passion for over 6 years now.

I was born in 1985 in a little village called Shotley Bridge. I moved to Leeds in 2004 to attend University and graduated with a BA Hons in Business in 2008. Having spent 2 years working in the UK I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to relocate to Singapore in 2010.

I love to challenge myself and have found sport a perfect outlet for that obsession. When I’m not sipping back an unhealthy volume of coffee and sugar, I spend an unhealthy amount of my free time cycling and running.

Even if it does sound a little cliché I am a firm believer that you only live once, so you’ve got to make the most of it. Given the above, and the fact I am a bit of a challenge junkie I decided to put together a bucket list in late 2011.

Education
  • Leeds Metropolitan University
  • Queen Elizabeth High School
  • Shotley Bridge Junior School

Didn't stay at the hotel, but ate at the bar one night and attempted to order from it another. Our table waited over 1 hour 30 minutes for food to arrive and it only arrived after we kicked up a lot of fuss. Second time we ordered 10 pizzas for takeaway at 5:30, went to pick them up at 8:30 and they hadn't even started them and tried to claim we'd be waiting at least another hour. I've experienced some terrible service in my lifetime, but actually this was the worst service to date. Absolutely hopeless.
