Hello, my name is Nathan ‘Vancano’ Smith and I’m a writer, content marketing strategist and worldbuilder.
About this website
This is my personal blog. It’s my sandbox to run experiments, learn new technology and write about things that don’t fit on my other websites.
I’m a firm believer in keeping a tight focus on a blog’s topic in order to find “your people” and produce content that will be of interest to the audience you’re building. However I’m blowing that out of the water with this website.
Sometimes you just need a place where you can store thoughts, play with ideas and find the fun in writing. That is this website.
Since 2009 I’ve worked in content marketing across various roles such as creative designer, email marketer and copywriter.
I’m currently the Web Content Officer for the University of Huddersfield, where I write content and advise on information architecture and web analytics.
It’s important to note that all views expressed on this website are my own and do not reflect the views of the University.
First things first. Why Vancano? I’ve written an article about why here.
