About Bob

I'm Bob 'Bobble' Bardsley, freelance writer, online journalist and all-around geek.

I graduated from the University of Manchester in 2006 with a BA(Hons) in Language, Literacy and Communication and spent five years at a multinational online news agency before going freelance.

Working from home gives me the flexibility to focus on the work I love - small orders for small companies, at small prices - although I'm happy to tackle big orders too.

My specialties include...
  • Finance
  • Technical Writing
  • Niche Topics
  • Vague Briefs
  • Awkward Keywords
  • Search-Friendly Landing Pages
I'm a member of British Mensa and a full Member of the Institute of Physics (MInstP) so not many topics are out of my grasp with a little research and background reading.

For unusually tight briefs and the nichest of niches, I'm always happy to provide a short sample written to your specifications.

When I'm not writing, you'll usually find me answering the really big questions, like "Can you make sangria with Vimto?".

Praise for Bob...

"Bob is, without a shadow of a doubt, the finest copywriter I've worked with during my career at Grace Cole. Always professional, full of fantastic ideas for relevant stories at the drop of a hat, and always willing to help when it comes to last-minute deadlines. An absolute pleasure to work with, I can't recommend him highly enough."
- Jane Thornber, Grace Cole Cosmetics

"Bob is a pleasure to work with. He always has something positive to say, is bursting with relevant, interesting feature ideas and can be relied upon to turn copy around quickly. I would thoroughly recommend this man!"
- Ele Cooper, AboutProperty

"Bob has provided high quality and relevant copy for us on several occasions. He works quickly using his own initiative while submitting work that meets the often barely existent brief. His work has been the basis for articles which will be of use to our target audience into the future. We keep his email address close at hand."
- Harry Bailey, Fetch Didsbury
