What I do
I am a strategic and creative content writer and editor who loves partnering with like-minded people to make amazing digital content. I work with businesses and professionals to create and improve content for blogs, websites and social media profiles. My aim is to give people the words and the skills to get their message across.
Over the years, I have written and edited a variety of corporate, professional and non-business documents, but today my focus is on online and digital publication. My skills include:
- Writing business and corporate blogs and e-newsletters
- Developing and implementing content strategies
- Managing blogs and websites
- Creating social media content
- Managing and monitoring social media
- Conducting content audits
Currently, I am offering content writing, content auditing and strategy, and editing for businesses, professionals and writers.
When I'm not busy creating and managing content or editing, I can often be found with a good book or a cryptic crossword and a cup of tea.
I believe that by understanding our own strengths and partnering with people whose strengths we complement, we can all achieve more. Once I realised that not everyone has the skills or inclination to write their own content, I discovered how my strength could benefit other people. Likewise, you know your own business and professional goals best. Together, we can bring them to life through great content.
If I were hiring a content writer or editor, I would want to know that they have the skills and experience to do the job. I am committed to maintaining a high degree of professional competence through ongoing professional development and education. If you are curious, you can find a list of my relevant qualifications and current professional memberships on my LinkedIn profile.
I value open and clear communication with clients and colleagues alike. Listening is also an important part of this. I am always open to hearing feedback, and I welcome questions. My aim is to be approachable and provide opportunities for productive discussions.
Throughout my career, I have valued the support and opportunities provided by many different people and organisations. I have sought to return the favour by giving my time to support and mentor others, and volunteering my skills to help professional and community organisations. In this way, I hope to make a positive contribution to the community.
