About Me

About MeHi, I’m Andrew Firth, founder and owner of simplifytheweb. Here you can read all about me and my journey on the web.

All my life I have been a coach, a strength coach to be precise, even running my own successful business at a time. As the fitness industry began to boom and consequently becoming saturated in 2014, my desire for what I had always loved, soon began to fade.

I had lost my respect for industry which for now, seemed, to be built solely on lies and deception.

After marrying my wife in 2015, we decided to take a sabbatical year and relocate from Ireland to sunny Spain. I was not sure of what I was going to do in this time, but welcomed the break, hoping for something new that could stir my creative juices again.

Embracing change

Soon after to moving, my wife mentioned that she needed a website to go with her new start up business. Not what you could call an IT expert by any means I thought with lots of free time on my hands, I would give it a go.

Building a WordPress Blog

WordPress Content Management System (CMS) is my port of call for any job. With 74,652,825 million websites relying on WordPress, a pretty valid justification for it’s choice. I have built blogs using other platforms such as Wix and Squarespace, however, WordPress has always prevailed as my favorite.

Interrupt the information and pass it on

Maybe its the coach in me, but having experienced the ups and downs of starting a blog. I feel compelled to share my experiences and knowledge on the topic, in the hope to better educate others.

It is therefore for this reason, that I have put together Simplifytheweb. Providing a beginners guide on how to build a blog using WordPress, without all the jargon.

Anyone can build a blog, you don’t need to have a degree in IT, just access to a laptop and an internet connection. In as little as five steps you could have your own WordPress blog. Simplifythweb is built using in my opinion the best products and services available.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me. Welcome to simplifytheweb. I hope you enjoy the site and find the information useful.
