Looking for answers? Just ask!
Why is your business called HODYO Design?
I wanted a cool two word name starting with an H and following up with a D, like most of my previous business names.
And? Tell me more!
I played Dungeons & Dragons a lot when I was young, a fantasy tabletop role-playing game created in 1974 by TSR.
HODYO is a red dragon in the Lancedragon universe, a novel series also created by TSR. HODYO Design sounded interesting and unique; I like it.
Where do you live?
In Brussels, Belgium.
Why did you stop blogging?
After 11 years spent behind my computer seven days a week, I got bored.
Do you work as a DIYer full-time?
Kinda! I spend more time watching other people making stuff on Youtube than making stuff myself. I guess it will pay off sooner or later 🙂
Why did you start your own Youtube channel?
Having watched hundreds and hundreds of other makers videos, I just thought I could do some videos myself, and voilà!
Do you make a living from it?
January 2017. Not a dime yet! But I hope I will. Eventually.
January 2018. Revenues from Youtube: $30-$50 a month. It’s a start 🙂
How big is your shop?
My previous shop was SMALL! 10.3 sqm, or 111 sqft! Half the size of a US one car garage!
But I moved for a much bigger one (roughly 45 sqm, or 484 sqft) in January 2018. It is located 50 meters from where I live, so I consider myself as a lucky guy!
