I’m Eric Davies, an ex-librarian who in previous incarnations worked for the British Standards Institution, ran a reference library, and managed an association for librarians and others working with information about the European Union (EU).

Self-employed for 24 years, I live in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in North East Wales, where I enjoy running and walking in the woods and hills, usually accompanied by my dog, Benge.

I made my first website in 1996 (back in the days of hand-coding HTML) and continued to create sites alongside doing other things until focusing exclusively on web design, hosting and maintenance.

I enjoy challenges – and learning WordPress has provided lots of them. I don’t give in easily, so tend to find a way to do whatever’s required; you might say that I’m like a DoodlyDog with a bone!

A proofreading web designer

An avid reader and experienced writer, I’m good at spotting errors on both page and screen.

Give me your copy and I won’t drop it into the site without making sure it makes sense – so you won’t be embarrassed by the sort of typos and readability issues that plague many websites.
