Why are we called Puck & Co.?
My clever husband, who loved the English language, was given the job of finding a suitable name for my business. He took to this with gusto coming up with many ideas, but, we finally chose Puck & Co. Puck was the name of the character in William Shakespeare's play "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Robin Goodfellow was his name and his final line was:
"Give me your hands, if we be friends, And Robin shall restore amends". William Shakespeare.
"In Elizabethan folklore, Puck (a.k.a. Robin Goodfellow) is a household sprite who, depending on his mood, plays annoying tricks on people or helps them out with their chores. This explains why Shakespeare's Puck brags to us about all the times he's been a pest to local villagers by sabotaging vats of ale and ruining the batches of butter that housewives spent all morning churning."
Robyn is my name. I don't behave like Puck but I do help out with chores, particularly yours.
I had my own accommodation business in the Hunter Valley for over 10 years. I am currently working in the wine/tourism industry and have been for the past 4 years. Over time I fell into the job of managing a tourism website. I loved doing it so much that I decided to take up the challenge of content writing and search engine optimising (SEO). I have had several successes since, as you can see by my portfolio.
I am now into my third year of studying Social Science at Newcastle University. I have chosen for my electives English Literature and Creative Writing. I want to be able to write on websites in a language other than the boring narratives that you read on most. I believe it is important to be creative, imaginative, informative and relaxed, as the target of the content is a human being.
By studying Social Science, and with my life experiences of what humans want, I have learnt alot about how people 'tick'. I now extrapolate that to business, applying this knowledge to help you convert your enquiries to paying customers. The instincts and cultures of human beings is what I study, it is not psychology but how humans interact at work and play.
Writing English rhyme and creative content is an art. Shakespeare had the gift and so did many other poets. I don't expect that I will write as brilliantly as they did however I will try.
The 'Co' in the name relates to the people I work with: Ikoniq, namely John, is the technical side of the site, Camilla from Studio C is the designer.
