My name's not really Darcy. My wife blogs at Modern Mrs Darcy and I work behind the scenes for her. So when people on the interwebs heard that, they took to calling me Mr Darcy. And I kind of like it.
Once I began working on her blog I started looking for more opportunities to do blog design, coaching, and editorial management.

Who’s Mr. Darcy?
So my real name is Will Bogel. I don't blog myself, but I admire those who do because I don't know that I could hack it day in and day out. But I love the inner workings of blogging and understanding the technical and business aspects.
So that's what I'm doing here--offering a behind the scenes, dispassionate look at your blog. There are plenty of things that you've become "shop blind" to and then there are those things that you simply hang onto because you're so emotionally tied to them. I try to help you sort all of that out and create the best reading experience for your audience. But the material, well I leave that up to you.
When I'm not editing or designing for Modern Mrs Darcy and my clients, I make coffee, read non-fiction (exclusively to my wife's chagrin), Crossfit, and train my own young entrepreneurs (kids).
