Hi
I'm Mike Bailey and I'm based near Reading, UK. I've been writing professionally since 2008.
InfoBarrel isn't my first experience of article writing, but it's certainly the most fun. It's good to find a supportive writing community and I enjoy learning from other writers.
Take a look at my (sadly neglected) blog, Cocoa Before Bed if you enjoy an alternative take on life.
I'm also working on a couple of other blog ideas using self-hosted WordPress - should launch soon. I'm using Elegant Themes on these - affiliate link there - I'll be after feedback once they're live.
I write a few InfoBarrel articles for clients but most of my work here is about things that interest me. Feel free to get in touch!
