A few years ago, I started blogging as a fun way to record our lives with a combination of photographs and short stories about our day to day lives. As time went on, blogging became both my passion and my career.
This page is about the services I can offer as a blogger, advertiser and a freelance writer. I also want to tell you a little bit about some of the brands I’ve worked with and the amazing people I’ve been lucky enough to feature on the blog over the years.
On the blog
Building a relationship with relevant brands has become one of the most rewarding elements of blogging for me. I am passionate about providing honest reviews and high quality collaborative posts that I am proud to promote across all my social media channels.
I like my posts to stand out amongst the crowd. I dare to be different, injecting a little humour here and there alongside beautiful images and captivating text. My blog is characterised by short, catchy paragraphs, relevant photographs and posts that read as short stories rather than dull narrative.
I am active on all social channels, but I am particularly passionate about Twitter and Instagram. I love the interaction that comes from having over 12,000 followers on Twitter. It is also a great platform for promoting both my blog and your brand.
Instagram is my stress reliever. It reminds me to look at the world around me and appreciate it. This leads to quirky, beautiful photographs that I edit only slightly to ensure that each of them reflects both my personality and my distinctive Instagram feed. I have in excess of 11,000 followers, and each photograph receives hundreds of likes. I find Instagram to be an incredibly successful platform for promotion when used wisely and sparingly.
I am, first and foremost, a writer. On my blog, I specialise in topics related to family life. This includes emotive posts, recipes, crafts, opinion, information, fiction and reviews of relevant products, travel and days out. However in my day job, my writing focusses on different areas.
Before following my dream to become a writer, I did a degree and worked for many years in the legal arena. As a result, much of my writing work has been for legal clients, putting technical legal articles, news and commentary into layman’s terms and making it engaging to read.
My other area of specialism is in travel. Having lived abroad and travelled extensively, it was a natural progression for me to work in this field. My relevant expertise, coupled with my capacity to portray the magic of a destination has led me to write for some prestigious travel brands.
Over the past few years I have represented Drayton Manor Theme Park, the National Sea Life Centre, Wagglepets and NowTV in an ambassadorial capacity. I also work regularly with the Co-Operative and Prezzybox. Over the past 12 months I have worked with brands ranging from holiday companies, to restaurants to magicians. I create innovative content that makes people stop and pay attention. This may be through a dedicated blog post, video or social media promotion.
Featured on my blog
I have been delighted to showcase some incredible people on Plutonium Sox. As a blogger, I was particularly proud to interview Donna from What the Redhead Said, Stevie from A Cornish Mum Blog and Martyn from Inside Martyn’s Thoughts. I have also interviewed Rebecca Adlington and Benedict Allen for features on this blog. I was excited and in awe of them both, and I hope that I have done justice to such big personalities in my posts.
