I’m Alec – The New Guy at Red or Blue
I’m Alec, the new guy here at Red or Blue. I come here from a background in marketing, and more recently a general digital marketing role. During my previous role, I became very interested in search marketing, and so decided to specialise in this area by joining one of the best SEO agencies that I could find.
I’ve got a passion for traveling – I grew up in New Zealand, where I lived until my early twenties having hardly ever left the North Island. By the time I finished university, my feet were extremely itchy, and I came to Europe for almost two years of travelling on a shoestring. Overall, I gained a lot of fantastic memories, and some extremely niche knowledge – ask me if you need to know the best spots in Turkey for hitchhiking, which backpacker hostels will let you stay for free, or why the residents of a certain Austrian village will definitely not be impressed by your antics.
Trivia about me: Outside of the office, I like to spend a lot of time with friends – you’ll often find me at live music bars or following the rugby. If I were stuck on a desert island, I’d take nothing but an MP3 player. Despite playing more than 1000 times in the past 15 years, I’ve never managed to finish Alex Kidd in Miracle World; although I’ve finished FFVII many times, and my best play time is around 10 hours.

Anyone who religiously follows the Red or Blue blog will get the feeling that we all find writing our first blog article a little daunting – particularly when the brief is “write about yourself”. In my short time here, Kun and the team have taught me that I need to back up every feeling and theory with some hard data, so without further ado, here’s some data about everyone else’s ‘welcome’ blog posts (if you ever start working at Red or Blue, you can use this data to generate your own unique blog post)…
Excluding stopwords, the most common terms are ‘SEO’ with an average of 3 mentions per post, closely followed by ‘Red’ and ‘Blue’ (2.5 mentions/post). The longest word used was ‘groundbreaking’, while the shortest was ‘a’ (‘i’ if you’re counting in pixels); the average length of each post was 383 words (made up of a total dictionary size of 549 words).
