I’m Website Builder Expert’s Content Manager, which means I cast my eye over everything that goes up onto the site, as well as penning my own posts, too. I built my first website in 2016 with Wix, in a last-ditch attempt to get a friend’s ailing rock band some gigs. Since then, I’ve experimented with Squarespace, GoDaddy, and Shopify, and dabbled in hosting and email marketing tools, too – with far greater levels of success! I trust you’ll find the wide range of articles on our site helpful, and please don’t hesitate to shoot me a message with anything else you’d like to see on Website Builder Expert.Read my full bio

Once upon a time, my digital knowledge was virtually nonexistent – I couldn’t even hook a printer up to my laptop without a good helping of blush-inducing curses. Since then, I’ve worked hard to change that and, thanks to the team here at Website Builder Expert, I’ve learned a lot (who knew that hosting doesn’t just refer to handing out drinks at a summer BBQ?). Using my passion for words and my own experiences with website-building and digital marketing, I’m determined to help others like me get comfortable and take the internet by storm– without any stress or the need for profanities!Read my full bio
I joined the Website Builder Expert team to share my true experiences so far and give you the tips that I wish someone gave me to avoid the ‘heavy sigh’ mistakes. I want to make it as simple as possible for others to bring their ideas to life and to see the website building process as a progressive opportunity, rather than an annoying virtual barrier!Read my full bio
I grew up scribbling in notebooks, and until recently the thought of relocating my writing to the digital world seemed like an impossible goal.

Frequently asked questions
WBE is funded by referral traffic. For example, if you read a review, then sign up to a plan, we sometimes receive a small commission. Most website builders and ecommerce platforms offer free trials or money-back periods, which means that unless you’re happy, we don’t get a cent. Check out our Disclosure for more info.
No, you will never pay more for a product by going through our site. In fact, it’s often the opposite, as we can sometimes negotiate special discounts for our readers. Any commission we receive comes directly from the company itself – it never costs you a cent extra, and means we can make enough money to support our work. We reckon that’s a win-win situation.
Well, for starters – we’ve been doing this for a pretty long time!
