Work With Me! | I don't blog, but if I did...

Work With Me!


Welcome to I Don’t Blog — the online magazine for people who don’t read blogs.

I don’t do a lot of things, in the same way that I don’t blog: I don’t love great food, I don’t love a solid debate, I don’t love to travel, I don’t love amazing food. . . you get the drift. 😉

I’m a driven freelance writer, marketer, public relations professional, and I also work full-time now that my kids aren’t attached to my hips.

I’m an award-winning writer
, curator of stories for the #ShowMeYourBrave project, speaker, blogger, and I was the well-known allergy writer for Yummy Mummy Club (until my son was cleared of all food allergies — hooray!) My passion is connection through writing  — whether that’s riveting marketing copy, or personal essays that connect with people and give meaning to life’s experiences, connecting is my goal.

As a seasoned blogger, I can offer your brand something you can’t buy or commission: I give you my trusted voice, dedicated audience and honest opinions. I have been blogging on various platforms since 2002, so you know you’re working with an experienced and informed writer.
