I’ve decided to move into being a full-time freelance web developer. It’s a natural progression from where I’ve been over the last few years.
I’ve been working with websites in one way or another for a very long time. As a Unix systems administrator, setting up web servers and creating web-based documentation was a frequent part of my role. When I took over the running of a local community development charity, I created a lot of websites for the charity itself and its customers, which were small charities and community groups. More recently, working as a freelance copywriter, I’ve regularly been asked by clients to not only write web content but also to put it on their websites and even redesign their whole web presence.
