About Eric D. Greene

Eric D. GreeneI am a dad and husband, an artist, web developer, and online entrepreneur.

I’ve been working in the internet industry since 2003, when I was hired to provide technical support for a website hosting company.  I soon learned enough web development to work doing that full-time in 2006.  In the interests of improving my web design skills, I went back to school for fine art and found my passion for drawing rekindled.

While in art school, I discovered oil pastels and began doing most of my artwork with them. Without thinking much about anything like SEO or online marketing, I started creating blog posts about my oil pastels art to share it with others.

The next thing I knew, I was finding my oil pastels art popping up all over Google search results whenever I myself wanted to search something in Google related to oil pastels. I even discovered a specific blog post ranked on page one for the term “oil pastels flowers”, and that became the #1 Google image result.

I realized the power of search engines and internet marketing, and ramped up my efforts in those areas.  I started learning about blogging, content marketing, and social media.  I created a unique website at OilPastelTechniques.com and learned how to make money with it using affiliate ads and sponsored promotions.  That website and others continue to have success today.

I’ve tried a lot of things in the world of internet marketing.  I’ve discovered what works and what doesn’t.  Interestingly, I find most of my success comes when I cover topics that I’m most passionate about.  Which for me personally is positive parenting, art, personal development, and making money online.

    1. Deborah – I’m glad you appreciate the quote! It took a few minutes for me to precisely express the thought in words.
      And thanks for the link 🙂

  1. Hey, man. Haven’t talked to you in forever. I like your art. Didn’t know you did stuff like this; I’m impressed… How… Ever… You should do your own custom theme. It’s not hard, even the PHP is rudimentary. But you prolly know this!

    Anyways, take it easy, man & hit me up some time.

    1. Hey Dan! Thanks for the comments on the artwork.
      I’ll get around to customizing this theme, some time. As usual, it’s all a matter of prioritizing my time. I’m sure you know what that’s like right? – Eric

  2. 😆 😆 You are my hero – please post MORE – you need all of your work displayed so we can all enjoy it! And hey – how did you get such wonderful detail on your hair in the self portrait in Conte??!!

  3. Eric ~ Congrats on the awards you earned. I’m so glad that you “rediscovered” what makes you happy. You look refreshed and relaxed. Let your spirit soar! Your work is phenomenal! Keep in touch.
