Copywriter + Digital Marketer

About Me

I'm an experienced copywriter, with a strong background (and personal passion) for topics in the green industry: sustainability, permaculture, building, health, parenting - you name it, I've written about it.

I'm a regular guest blogger for Mother Earth News, and write for several print publications as well. I'm lucky in that I've found a strong career focus in what interests me anyway - sustainability, health, and parenting.

Don't let my current writing focus deter you though - if you're looking for a multi-faceted writer than can cover any topic for any audience, I'm your girl. I've also extensively covered these topics:

In addition to being a writer, I'm familiar with current SEO best practices for what I write, as well as outreach, white hat link building, and social media marketing.

I'm fast, reliable, responsive, and a mighty fine writer too - what I write for you will always be unique and original, and it will have sales copy and SEO built right in.

Denim Hair: The Soft Blue Hue That's the New You

Digital business blog posts for freelancers

There is a massively growing movement, as I'm sure you're aware, of freelancers that have taken their skills to the web to build almost exclusively digital businesses. These are people with zero to moderate tech knowledge, and many are seeking information on project management solutions, beginner level digital marketing strategy, etc. My idea is to build a strategy for these businesses that targets those customers, and brings them in with content they're already searching for.
