Angela and Simon worked at an online creative agency for several years, communicating largely via dog memes and appalling puns. The time came for a change, and – as if by magic* – WordHound was born. Contact Angela today to see how we can help you.

*No actual magic was performed during the creation of WordHound. WordHound Ltd is simply a provider of content writing, design and translation services.

Angela is interested in just about everything. When she discovered a role that allowed her to talk to a variety of people, then read blogs about endless topics from floor tiles to GDPR, it felt like a perfect fit. She’s been doing it for a while now, so it will take a lot to surprise her, but she will still be keen to hear about you and turn your info into the perfect content brief.

When she’s not working at WordHound HQ beside office dog Ronnie, you are likely to find Angela climbing sea cliffs, camping on the moors, or getting tangled up trying to master the art of aerial silks. Maybe one day it will look graceful…

Simon is a writer-turned-editor, and project director for WordHound. Having tired of the rain in Dublin while working as a dialogue editor in 2011, he moved to Greece and found it was possible to make a living by writing.

Simon has vowed to stop buying guitars. Five seven Eight *ahem* is enough. It’s not a vow he really believes he’ll be able to keep. When he’s not dipping his weird toes in the sea off Crete, he likes to ride his ancient Africa Twin around the western (i.e. best) part of the island, marvelling at the fact that everyone else has one too.

About The Writing Team

Our team is magnificent. Just thinking about their skills makes us well up. They all have a few things in common; our writers and translators are all native speakers, for example, and all have been forged in the white-hot intensity of the content furnaces, rendering them impervious to pain and… well, very good at writing. But of course their skills and preferences vary – they are still human, after all. Below, you’ll find some of the topics they like, some that they know a lot about, and some things they’re not quite so keen on, just for a laugh…

First, some of their preferred topics:

  • Fitness
  • Lifestyle

  • Theatre

  • Health and wellness

  • Music

  • Self help/development

  • Business

  • Parenting

  • Travel

  • Tourism

  • Pets

  • Personal finance

  • Animals

  • South Africa

  • Digital and online trends

  • Art

  • Digital marketing
  • History
  • Marketing

  • Retail

  • Design (interior design, print, digital etc)

  • Comic books

  • Movies and media

  • Technology

  • AI and Industry 4.0

  • Robots

  • Natural medicines

  • Indurvedic herbs and plants in general

  • Photography
  • Anarchy!

  • Cryptocurrency
  • Healthcare… “conflicting research is fun!”

  • Astrology, the paranormal etc… “probably stuff most people would consider weird (if they’re being polite, which they’re often not).”

  • Social media

  • Family/parenting/elderly care

  • Politics

  • Education (all ages)

  • Psychology

  • Mental Health

  • Blogs generally

  • Web content

  • Product descriptions

  • Electrical and mechanical components

  • Tiles, carpets & domestic product descriptions generally

  • Accountancy

  • Catnip highs

Phew! Quite a list. But that’s just a selection of their favourite topics. Here’s a few that some of them remembered in a slightly less positive light:

    • Brexit: “I will hold a little party when I no longer have to write about Brexit.”
    • Luxury goods: “I don’t like writing on luxury topics/high end retail, as I don’t identify with that world at all. (Ask me after a lottery win and I might change my mind).”
    • Diggers etc: “I would rather go and live in a ditch than write another word about Australian mining equipment.”
    • Er… workplace ‘issues’: “The strangest thing I have ever written is a piece on how to poo at work.”

However, bear in mind that we do have plenty of writers who are more than happy to write about Brexit, luxury retail, mining equipment, and lavatorial practices. You only have to ask.

Ronnie takes his self-appointed role of meet and greeter very seriously, but it’s a tiring job, so you will mostly find him upside down, snoring loudly, almost exactly in the way of something.
