A little bit about me
Hi, I’m Mike Bromley, and I’m a freelance WordPress website designer based in Wickford, Essex.
I started building websites as a hobby late last century, teaching myself HTML, CSS and Dreamweaver along the way. One of my early sites was for my children’s school, which was awarded the county’s school website of the month competition.
Most of my career was spent working for a large firm in the City of London. In the early noughties I was enjoying my hobby of building websites and databases so much (yes, I’m that geeky) that I managed to get myself transferred to the IT department.
Once in IT, I fulfilled roles in everything from development and support through to project management. Even after I stopped developing, I continued to work with the IT team responsible for the firm’s global websites.
By 2017 it was time for a career break. My wife and I both quit our jobs, bought a motorhome, and spent a wonderful couple of years travelling around Europe. Itching to get back to hands-on website work, I built a WordPress blog so that we could record all of our adventures.
We’ve returned from our travels, back to ‘real life’, and I’m now a freelance WordPress website designer. It’s what I enjoy doing the most.
