Meet April Davis, our in-house Copywriter / lover of all things food & travel-related ! Don’t be fooled by her sweet exterior, get her surname wrong and you’ll be in a world of pain (for the record, it’s Davis not Davies!). Get to know more about her here….
Hi April! What do you do all day at Webfirm?
I’m Webfirm’s resident content producer/copywriter, which is basically a glorified way of saying I write a lot of blogs!
A normal day for me involves a lot of research, a lot of keyboard bashing as I work through my growing list of content for both blogs and website copy, and the odd client phone call or team meeting.
If you’ve had any written content produced for your site in the last eight months or so, chances are, I was the one that wrote it.
Favourite childhood memory?
The day I met my first dog, Bonnie. She was a gorgeous pomeranian with a tiny little face that looked just like a fox. I remember her hiding nervously under the table while me and my sister flattened ourselves on the floor trying to get her to come out so we could cuddle her. Pretty sure that only made it worse but I was only like five at the time, so…
What do you like to do on a rainy day?
Eat doughnuts and watch Netflix.
This will be hard, but tell us the best book you’ve ever read and why?
I’m a huge book nerd, so I could name a million different books that could easily qualify as the best I’ve ever read. Then again, I could also name a lot of embarrassingly terrible ones… cough… Twilight… (in my defence I was like 15 when I read it).
However, my favourite book is Ken Follett’s Winter of the World, which is the second book in a three part series following the turmoil faced by three generations of the same families/friendship circles in 20th century Europe and America. Book two follows a fictional, yet historically accurate account of the events in the lead up, during, and after World War II. It’s one of my favourites because its so detailed and well written and I must admit, it’s a bit of a tear jerker at times. I would definitely recommend it if you’re into historical fiction!
What’s the one single food that you would never give up?
DOUGHNUTS! I would happily eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I didn’t have to worry about them giving me diabetes.
What makes you furious?
Bad grammar. I’m totally nerding out here but nothing makes my skin crawl more than bad grammar, which I guess is a good thing given my line of work.
Would you rather never use social media sites / apps again or never watch another movie or TV show?
I’m disgustingly addicted to Netflix, so this is an easy one for me. I usually only use social media as a time waster, so it probably wouldn’t kill me to go without it anyway, but if I couldn’t binge watch the latest season of my favourite shows, I would probably die from grief.
Finally, give us a shameless plug for your Travel Blog please!
A few months ago my friend and I joked around about starting a travel blog as we were planning our overseas trips for next year. We both love to travel and would happily quit our jobs today if we could afford to just run away to somewhere exotic. Somehow that joke actually ended up turning into something and we started a blog and opened up a few social accounts. Check us out at Where in the World Adventures. I’m super biased but I think it’s pretty great!
