I do a bit of everything online, from building websites to writing e-newsletters to ghost-blogging with SEO in mind.
While I’m not a programmer, I worked with a friend to create the award-winning website CharterWave on a Joomla CMS in 2006. In late 2016, for the site’s 10th anniversary, I worked with a developer to relaunch CharterWave on a WordPress CMS, in a way that helped readers make the best possible use of the more than 2 million words of content the site contained at that time (CharterWave was the biggest repository of editorial information about yacht charter on planet Earth). The site did well financially until I took it offline in December 2019, responding to significant changes in the marine publishing sphere. CharterWave was a leading concept and longtime success story that ran its course in the evolving digital and editorial marketplace.
The same developer who helped me relaunch CharterWave also helped me create DogMerchants.com on a WordPress CMS in 2016. That site is evolving following the publication of my 2016 book The Dog Merchants.
I’ve ghostwritten blogs, e-newsletters and website content for various brands in the marine industry, including using newsletter management systems such as Constant Contact, MailChimp and Benchmark. I’m also a regular contributor of digital content to Yachting.
Last but not least, I built the website you are looking at now. If you’ve gotten this far, I must have done something right…
