I’ve been creating content as my full-time job for more than three years now, but it’s taken seriously hard work, long hours and a rollercoaster journey to get here. Oh, and let’s throw in a global pandemic for good measure.
It’s such a new industry so there’s been loads of trial and error involved in making my way up as a content creator, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
After years of constant research, testing, failing and succeeding, I want to share my secrets and help you build your blog faster and more easily.

I have been with FastComet for about three years now and I cannot recommend them enough, they are absolutely brilliant.

I have looked into most major courses that focus on blogging, Instagram and photography, so if you’re considering a course that I haven’t mentioned, it’s quite likely that I researched it and decided not to purchase it for whatever reason.
