A Day In My Life

By John Bektashi

Hello and a big thank you to all of my loyal readers! Blogging is such an interesting experience. You open up and share your life with your readers. At times, you feel naked and vulnerable. But without them, you are basically just keeping a journal that only you look at. So while it is strange to know people are beginning to follow me, I appreciate that you have enough interest in doing so.

So, as a freelance website developer, one of the questions that I am frequently asked is what is a day in your life like. My friends and family all think that my life must be so much different because I don’t have a boss. While my life probably is not that different than yours, I figured I would give you a glimpse into a normal day in the life of John Bektashi.

Since I have a toddler, I am up bright and early. My day typically starts around 6 to 6:30, depending on when the boy wakes up. I get up, get him some breakfast and make the usual hot morning beverages. It is a pot of hot coffee for me and a cup of hot tea with some honey for the misses. From there, it’s the typical morning rush we all have. I shower and get ready for the day, all while helping get my son dressed and ready for his day. My wife leaves for work around 7:30 and takes my son to daycare with her. Once the house clears out, I browse around on the internet for a bit and then begin to work.

I begin to play around on the websites for some of my clients, such as Mr Green, BGO Casino, Casumo Casino and Leovegas. I read about what’s going on in the casino industry and what trends people want to see on the websites and try to implement them. I stop and have lunch and breaks, but for the most part, that’s the bulk of my day.

My wife and son get home around 5:30. We eat dinner, play, read, bathe, watch a bit of television and then head to bed. Like I said, my day is pretty routine and very similiar to the rest of yours, despite the fact that I freelance.

Getting to Know Me, Getting to Know All About Me!

By John Bektashi

Hey and thanks for stopping by my website. My name is John Bektashi. I’ve never really been one to talk about myself, but I do feel it is important for readers to know who they are reading about and to develop a rapport with, so here it goes.

Most importantly, I am a husband and father. I have been married for almost six years to the love of my life, Maggie. She completes me and I can’t imagine my life without her. I am 32 years old and Maggie is about to turn the big 3-0! Together, we currently have one child. We have a three year old son named Henry. However, we also have another child on the way in just a few short months. We have decided not to find out if it is a boy or a girl, so we are both excited to welcome our new arrival.

Let’s see. What else should you know about me? Well, I’m a freelance website developer. I do freelance work with a lot of online casinos. Some of my favorite clients include Mr Green, BGO Casino, Casumo Casino and Leovegas. I love working as a freelancer. I get to set my own schedule and I do not have a boss looking over my shoulder. And with a small child and pregnant wife, it is nice to be able to work around their appointments and activities. I truly am lucky that I have such a great job that I love.

The last thing I want readers to know about my life is that I live in the outskirts of London. I am originally from the United States, but moved here to attend college. I met my wife and knew I could not leave. So this has become my new home. It was an adjustment at first, especially with all of the rain and the different cuisine, but a little over a decade later, I can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world.
