Showing some love to the old blog as we celebrate 15 years of copywriting

It’s really been 15 years since I went full time as a freelance copywriter, and things have never been better!

A book almost as dusty as this copywriter's blog

I wonder what percentage of the posts on this neglected website are celebrating some anniversary or other?

Well, who cares because here comes another!

All the way back in July 2008, I took the plunge and went full time as a freelance copywriter. It was risky, exciting, extremely difficult, and poverty inducing… but 15 years, a wife and two kids, and hundreds of lovely clients later, life and work have never been better.

It’s busy here at Wheatleys. I feel very lucky to be able to say that.

We work with a fairly small group of regular clients, mostly on IT, video game, and charity-related projects. And it’s still me writing most of the copy, with help from a few trusted colleagues where needed. I prefer it that way, for now – I still want to be writing, rather than managing people.

But that means we don’t have a lot of room for new clients at the moment, or time to do things like update the website.

Is it important to change that? Probably. Lately I feel like I have more to say. I’ve been writing professionally for 15 years, and I’m starting to feel like my experience could be worth sharing. Stay tuned to find out whether that’s really the case.

Are we open to helping with your marketing project? Yes – if you have a goal, if you believe in what you’re doing, and if you need someone with knowledge of gaming or computing. The best way to get in touch is with a friendly message via our contact page.

Thank you to everyone who’s supported Wheatleys over the past 15 years. Here’s to many more.
