Everyone just loves writing an ‘About Me’ don’t they?!
The professional one
I’m an experienced copywriter and SEO professional with a degree in Creative Writing and several years’ experience producing content and copy for a range of clients across multiple industries.
In 2019 I set up an Instagram account and a blog. I’d worked in marketing for years but, after having my kids, I decided I wanted to pursue writing full time, and a social media account and accompanying blog seemed like a good place to start.
The real one
When I was a kid I wanted to be a features writer for a magazine. That never happened, I followed my boyfriend to uni instead and embarked on a career in marketing (it worked out ok, we’re happily married with two kids).
The itch never left though, so I set up a blog and an Instagram account. Both were focussed on rewearing your wardrobe and not mindlessly buying new crap you don’t need just for an instant serotonin hit. It went well, people liked me (who’d have thought it) and I decided to set up a freelance business and pursue my passion for writing. Then I landed a job at a digital marketing agency writing SEO content, and now I have a steady job, regular freelance clients and can still pursue my blogging.
I blog about whatever I feel like now, although I am still passionate about rewearing. I know all those social media managers bang on about finding your niche and sticking it to it, but I’m not for being pigeon-holed. My life and my head are full of loads of crap so I want to talk about it all. We’re more than just one thing and all that jazz.
I don’t take myself too seriously, love a good walk (if you’re in your 30s and you don’t love a good walk, you’re not in your thirties) and I keep getting myself in the paper talking about saving money, even though I never pitched myself that way. Happy to roll with it to be honest.
Would love it if you read my blog and then someone made a book of it like Carrie Bradshaw. Or even just put me on Lorraine.
