We’re not really ones for routine here at WordHound. Instead, we love a bit of variety. That’s exactly why we run a creative content agency. For us, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing who walks through the metaphorical door next, but there are definitely a few things that we just won’t write about.
Every morning at WordHound is a mystery, and not always because we’ve forgotten what we were supposed to be doing today. We might open up our computers and find a request for something as relevant as digital marketing. Or something as fascinating as how the internet actually works.
Maybe it’ll be something as unusual as buying a Polish aristocracy title (yes, really), or even something as niche as the impact of catnip on the feline brain. Horse massage; frog recipes; how to dress as a 13th-century farmhand and not get sacked from your job as a Downing Street political advisor; the life cycle of the Guyanese vampire toad – okay, we haven’t had all of those. But there’s a never-ending list of subjects that come through and we are here for it.
Most of it, we just crack on with. Whether we like the topic or we don’t, or whether we agree with the premise or not, it’s not our place to tell you what sort of content you should have on your site. Although, if you do want a few suggestions, we can help you with that. At WordHound, we write – and have written – about pretty much everything. But there are some things we won’t touch.
Things we won’t write about:
- Any sort of content that condemns personal choice. Everyone has the right to think what they want about gender, religion, the LGBTQIA community etc., but we’re playing no part in sharing hurtful ideas.
- Racist crap, including the dog-whistle variety. We’re proud to have built an inclusive agency that’s fully against any form of discrimination.
- Quack ‘cures’. Yes, we know that science is always evolving. But our writers are tired of having to put ‘some people believe that…’ in front of every sentence, or saying ‘but always check with your doctor…’
- Anything that’s entirely unfounded and judgy rather than being educational. “11 Reasons Why X is the One True Religion”? No way. “Exploring the Belief Systems of Different Religions”? Sure, let’s dive in.
- Harmful lies. We’re definitely up for injecting some fictitious humour into our writing. But we’re not going to be writing about COVID-19 not existing, or 5G being Government mind control.
- Academic cheating and fake reviews. Nope! We won’t write your dissertation on Post-War Belgian Poetry for you, and not just because it sounds tedious. Neither will we write 50 fictitious Yelp reviews telling the world how comfortable and surprisingly cheap your fleet of converted-for-glamping 1972 Transit vans are. And not just because they’re not.
If you’re looking for content related to any of the above, we’re probably not the right content agency for you. And to be honest, you might have a bit of a hard time finding any (good) agency that will cover those things. Although there are probably a few bad ones that’ll consider it.
However, if you’re looking for anything not on our ‘no go’ list – even if it seems completely wacky – give us a call. We may not actually have seen it all yet, but we’d like to. We’re always hopeful that our next client will surprise us.
