I'm Paul Underwood from Bristol, UK and I created Paulund.
Paulund started as a place to collect all the resources and code snippets which I came across in day-to-day web development. I found that collecting all the code snippets meant I could easily get at them quickly in the future.
While finding more advantaged snippets I found I had to write a bit more description on the code to help remember what this bit of code was doing, this turned into writing tutorials about how to used this code snippet.
I found that writing tutorials about the code snippets really helped me learn exactly how it worked and better yet it helped others learn how it works. This was when I realised I really enjoyed writing tutorials about web development and really liked helping others with their Web Development problems.
Recently I've really enjoyed WordPress Development and started creating lots of WordPress plugins. I hope to write more tutorials about WordPress development mainly focusing on plugin development.
Being involved in the WordPress community by creating tutorials ManageWP listed me in the top 25 WordPress thought leaders.
I am available for WordPress freelance work, my services include:

As I write web development tutorials I get a lot of questions about what's the best way of learning web development as a beginner. For this reason I teamed up with another developer David Bainbridge to create a library of Web Development tools to help beginners get to know more about developing.
Currently there are 16 tools and we are continuously adding more all the time.
Some of the tools that you will find useful are:
- CSS Box Shadow Generator
- CSS Button Generator
- Pricing Tables
- Responsive Layouts
- Secure Password Generator
- Border Radius Generator
- CSS Minifier
I am available to write guest posts for other Web Development related blogs.
Below are just some of the blogs I have wrote for.

Over 25 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home”, and it’s by far and away the most successful blogging platform online.
