My name is Paul Ridge and I’m a freelance writer.
I’m currently working on my first novel, but in the meantime I produce copy for websites, blog updates, SEO optimisation, direct mail, marketing and advertising, magazine articles … the list goes on. Oh, and I muck about in here too. This is my blogfolio: a kind of wordy mash-up of the past, present and future. There’s loads of music reviews plus other more varied published articles. You’ll also find some more recent copy-writing jobs both from the UK and abroad, as well as various other witterings and observations, interspersed with photos, opinion and comment. Feel free to join in and don’t be afraid to tell me what you think about any of it …
I’m based in Southampton, but have worked as far afield as Leeds, London, Lille and Johannesburg.
This site is designed both as an online portfolio of my body of work so far, and as a kind of portal into the kind of thing that I do. It’s hopefully got a unique style, and you should get a fair idea of the kind of person I am by reading the words that I’ve written …
If you like what you see and think we could work together, get in touch for more details.
A warm welcome awaits you rigger
I know, and thanks for the invite, but I’m happy over on LUFCTalk.
I prefer that place, to be honest. They’re responsible and will pull stupid posts but they’re not so nannyish about it, plus you can swear without a whole load of bad things happening to your post 😀
Paul is a diamond. Not a rough one… a bright, shiny, sparkly one you want to show off to your friends. I’ve been his editor for the best part of 10 years; previously at AND Magazine – where he was an integral part of us winning our Local Magazine of the Year awards – and now at The AND Guide – where he’s helping shake the foundations of the status quo with our new rulebook (I’ve reserved the space on the shelf Paul!) A truly informative and entertaining writer that is simply a joy to work with Oh and fast too!).
Do not take him from me! 🙂
