Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and website. This post is intended to give you an overview of what I hope to accomplish as a writer and a mom.
A Modern Mom’s Life grew out of my long dormant desire to write. Period. Now that I have children, and a fledgling business, I welcome this opportunity to get writing.
As a mom who worked outside the home pre Covid, I was always busy. Life rushed by, and I wished I could slow it down and capture more of the moments.
Now that things are completely uncertain, my girls have been at home with me for months, and I don’t completely hate it.
I’ve spent this stay-home time building up a freelance content writing business. I specialize in blog articles to support small businesses. You can read more about that on my Writer for Hire page.
A bit about my business:
My business model is very fluid at the moment. I’ve written a musician bio, some blog content for an agency, and I’m currently a freelance content manager with Kingstonist. My dream is to work closely with a few local businesses, creating blog content to support their online web presence.
You’ll see a Copywriting tab at the top of the page. In that section you’ll find a collection of articles you can browse. I’ve created those to help you support your own business. Some topics include: how to decide what keywords to use; why you should have a blog on your business website; and how blogs increase SEO.
Get in touch if you’re interested in a consultation to see how I can help you improve your business website: firstname.lastname@example.org. My consultations are no charge.
About this blog:
As a working mom I’m always looking for tips and tricks to make life easier. In my Working Mom category I share some posts about having a busy family life, raising tween daughters, and my views on the world from the busy working mom perspective.
I’m also looking for other mom-preneurs to feature on my blog. If you’re running a business I want to hear from you!
Even though I’ve been at this for over four years I’m still learning. I have a category dedicated to blogging, and there I post things I’ve discovered, or updates on how my blog is doing. I hope to share tidbits of my blog knowledge as a continue to learn more about being a successful blogger. There is no end to the learning, I’ve discovered!
Staying active is a huge goal of mine. Joining a dance class is the best thing I’ve done in years as far as keeping me motivated and “working out.” In my Active Living category I try to share tips for sneaking exercise into my busy life, or even just muse on how easy it is to sloth out and do nothing – especially in the winter!
Family Fun and Travel are categories where I share stuff we get up to as a family. I’ve been able to get a few discounted admissions to attractions in exchange for reviews on the blog. That’s so amazing to me!
Some of my content is hyper-local
My daughter Emma and I have some quiet aspirations to become famous. In my Acting/Modelling category I post about our adventures in the land of stardom. Really though we’ve been to one casting call together and I got a part and she didn’t. (The company decided to not use kids after all…) I have short blurb on my Contact Me page that talks about the few “extra” parts I’ve had in the last year.
I live in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, and I am actively trying to support local businesses.
Since Dec 2018 I’ve also been writing for a local media outlet – Kingstonist. I started there as an occasional contributor, but since have been promoted (?) to a paid freelance position doing press release rewrites and creating Business Features. If you’d like to learn more about what I can offer you in terms of promotion on Kingstonist, email me here: email@example.com
