About Neil

Since 2008 I’ve been creating WordPress and RapidWeaver websites and blogs for people who need help getting started and/or tweaking their site for increased performance and functionality.

I create websites that work using custom designs to my clients’ specifications, and I make sure sure that every site I work is optimised for its users and search engines. Keeping up to date with the latest design and performance trends allows the websites I create or optimise to rise above the field.

I also blog about websites, design and blogging over at WeBlogBetter. That’s where my clients find me and where I spend most of my time.
I sold WeBlogBetter in the summer of 2015 in order to focus on building my freelance client base.

WeBlogBetter has an Alexa Rank of around 100,000, which is not bad considering there are about 200,000,000 blogs on the internet. I was recently included in a list of 35 Blogs and Thought Leaders to Follow for the Best Blogging Advice.

Since 2008 and my first (failed) attempt at building a website, I’ve been on a mission to find out what makes a website successful. Day after day I hunted for solutions.

I wasn’t happy with just having a website. I wanted one that worked. I wanted to be found on Google. I couldn’t just sit there staring at and admiring my website if no one else was. So I got to work and learned the ins & outs of what makes a website successful.

I knew WordPress was the best way to go, but I couldn’t find the perfect theme. Then I found the Genesis Framework by Studiopress.
From then on I’ve been lucky to have found my real passion in life. Building the perfect website.
My background in all things technical lead me to this passion of mine. From programming my parents’ VCR when I was 10 years old to installing and maintaining CATV and CCTV systems in England, Spain, Colombia, Peru and Russia.

Before settling on creating and tweaking websites, I was a TEFL teacher. I have a CELTA certificate from the University of Cambridge and TEFL diploma from FUNIBER.
