Broad Noise is a merge between two separate hobbies I started in my spare time while at university; blogging and buying and selling. Broad Noise is an attempt to put off joining the “real world” as long as possible and to start a “business” doing something I enjoy. To better explain how this idea came about, I need to first explain the two aspects of Broad Noise:
Buying and Selling
I’ve always been a keen gamer and over the years I’ve grown a rather impressive collection (which can be seen here). After a few years of buying games from the likes of Amazon, Game and CeX, I realised it was more cost effective to buy bundles of games from eBay, keep the games I didn’t have and resale the others.
Last summer I took this theory further and started buying games from eBay with the purpose of reselling for profit. By doing this I managed to increase my collection and still be in profit, all through organic growth. This lead me to believe that, given time, it could be possible to make a “living” through buying and selling.
The blog itself first started as a music blog where I would share tracks that I liked, review gigs that I went to and occasionally review an album or two. There were no rules to this form of Broad Noise. I would write when I wanted to and if I couldn’t be bothered, I wouldn’t do anything at all.
When I realised it might be possible to take the buying and selling further from being just a hobby, I decided that the blog should be all encompassing of digital entertainment and act as a form of support for the eBay shop.
The aim for Broad Noise is to share my passion for music, film/tv and gaming in my own way that is interesting, helpful and enjoyable to read. The blog will also support the eBay shop by creating a feel of professionalism and by simply generating click-throughs to the shop itself.
