I do social marketing, WordPress copywriting
and make screencasts and documentation.
Hello, I'm Alex, an 19 year old social-marketer and WordPress geek from just outside London, England.
I'm currently on my gap year, and I'm working at the wonderful online and mobile games hub, Miniclip, where I'm part of the social team, handling social marketing.
As well as being at Miniclip, I'm also doing lots of exciting WordPress work and writing, including keeping my site WPShout up to date, creating WordPress themes and recording screencasts.
I started working with WordPress about six years ago, but my break into the WordPress community was in 2009 when I founded WPShout.com. The site is now one of the most respected WordPress tutorial blogs around, with nearly 4,000 subscribers.
From my work with WPShout, I've been fortunate enough to be able to work with and write for some of the nicest people and companies around, including Smashing Magazine, WPZOOM and Words For WP.
Hopefully I'll be able to work with you, too; I'll take you through my skills and experience below.
"So, Alex, could you distill all the things you do into a handy bit-size chart I can take a look at? That would be really great."

Yes, yes I could! In fact, I have! Man, we're so on the same page! Take a look at the chart below, and any questions or if you'd like to discuss any of this further, drop me an email.
Social marketing is using social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and blogs, and utilising them to connect with a promote to customers and a community. This is stuff everybody needs to be doing, and I can help.
I love writing, especially when it's tailoring content for the web. Blogging, copywriting, content marketing - whatever you call it - is something I spent a lot of time doing, and I'd like to think I'm quite good at it.
I wrote my first tutorial about four years ago, and I've not looked back since. I write a lot for WordPress theme companies, providing them with documentation and screencasts for their WordPress themes.
