About

I was an ‘early adopter’ of the Internet and have been setting up websites sine 1986. I’m not a programmer, nor a graphic designer, and my focus has always been on websites delivering useful information. Way back in 1998 I wrote a book ‘Making Sense of the Internet: A Guide for Small Voluntary Organisations’, which was well received and which went into a second edition in 2002.

My Essex Days Out website has been running for over ten years and has had three or four designs during that time, and is a website that is constantly updated. The Colchester Tourist Guides Association website is a simple design to match the simple content it contains, which does not need to be updated very often. I worked with the publishers of Motor Transport and helped them choose a new design and migrate to it, and I identified and installed a specialist plug to display their Top 100 spreadsheet data through the site.

I’d be happy to create a dinky little website for you. Whether you’re someone wanting a personal blog, a website for a society, pub or restaurant, voluntary organisation, commercial company or whatever. And if you think you might struggle to find the time to update the site, I can help you with that.

If you’ve got an existing website than needs fixing or replacing, or want some related information or advice (I know my way around social media strategy, content strategy, SEO and so forth) do get in touch. In early 2020 I migrated all my websites from running on Heart Internet to Siteground, as the former had proved unreliable in terms of downtime, and the latter was not only more reliable but much cheaper. So if you’re looking for alternatives to Heart Internet, that would be my recommendation. I can migrate your site from your existing host and run it on my webserver space with Siteground in just a couple of days, with no down-time.
