WHAT am I blogging on about?

My blog topics may cover anything from power-writing to being a parent to sharing a bus with a porcupine. I’d love to read your comments.

Blogs, of course, should never be self-indulgent ramblings – they’re one of the key ways to bring potential and existing customers to your website. Therefore please forgive the following unbidden musings.

No time to impart your nuggets of wisdom to the web world? Not sure what to say? Give me a call for blogging advice, writing and editing?

The 12-month campaign required energy and creative thinking to provide fresh ideas for website and social media content, as well as a constant flow of traditional newspaper stories.
