I was born on the Mediterranean island of Malta, and have always enjoyed returning there for holidays and family visits. In 2010, I wanted to start my solo career by giving something back to my country of origin.

I feel that we live in a world of consumerism and materialism gone mad. There are many reasons why this is the case – too much to delve into here. Suffice it to say, though, that I’m a big fan of preservation, taking care of belongings, and reusing wherever possible. I’m definitely not one of the “latest and greatest” crowd. I’ll make careful use of computers, bikes, gadgets and equipment until they fall apart. Sometimes literally!

In that light, I’m a big fan of online classifieds. They’re a great way for people to sell on unneeded items, or to find good but used items without the expense of buying new. When I left the United States, Craigslist was a fantastic way to offload most of my furniture to people who had a need for it. The whole process felt very cathartic and healthy for me. In 2010, I felt that Malta didn’t really have a viable classifieds platform. Sure, there was MaltaPark and a handful of other sites. But they seemed spammy and stale to me.

So, I launched Izjed.com to provide a spam-free, moderated classified advertising platform to the residents of Malta & Gozo. Now, Malta has several good classified advertising portals – amongst which I believe Izjed can count itself. I also created a video tutorial, which describes the simple steps you need to follow to get started with posting classifieds at Izjed.com:

The website uses filtering, moderation and automation to minimize the appearance of posts which are either spammy or not local to the Maltese locality – hence maximising the utility people will get out of the site. Izjed was implemented using an entirely proprietary website engine and webserver. Izjed is written almost entirely in Google Go.
