Thanks for popping by to check out my freelance writing portfolio.
Are you looking for a contributor for your magazine, website, blog, or social media channels?
So, who am I?
I’m Kara. Mama. Wife. Writer. Real foodie. Daydreamer. Nutrition nerd. Early childhood professional. Traveller.
Who am I to write about parenting, you ask? I certainly don’t think I’m a parent who knows it all, or has it under control. Far from it. I’m just winging it like the rest of us, and I’ve asked for help from family, friends, and professionals too many times to count.
I started writing parenting articles when my first baby was born just over five years ago. I’ve contributed to websites and magazines worldwide including Kidspot, A Fine Parent, Swaddles n’ Bottles, Early Childhood Australia, and The Work at Home Woman. I was approached by MamaMag to be their Eastside editor three years ago, and I’m now also the Northside editor. You can check out my portfolio here.
Before motherhood, I spent a rewarding and exciting career as a qualified nanny, caring for babies and toddlers while traveling around Europe for 15 years. During that time, I studied a degree in Psychology, trained as a gentle sleep specialist, and completed as many child-focused courses and workshops as I could. Dunstan Baby Language, Baby Sign, Baby Sensory, Newborn Care, Behaviour Management, Safe Sleeping, and Children’s Nutrition…and the professional development continues. As you can probably tell, it’s a topic I’m massively passionate about (okay, perhaps a little obsessed)!
What else can I tell you?
- I was the copywriter and social media manager of Food Babies Love before their recent closure.
- I have an Instagram account called Little Foodie Guide, where I showcase my enthusiasm for raising happy and healthy eaters (and also sell Little Foodie Smocks).
- I’ve created a closed Facebook support group called Solids and Sleep, where I share my knowledge and experience with mamas on my two favourite subjects. (I’m also in the process of setting up a gentle and holistic sleep coaching business, so feel free to contact me about that to find out more)
- I’m now a contributor to Little Peeps Eats, and will start creating content for their website, closed Facebook group, and social media platforms.
If you’re interested in working with me, please get in touch via my contact form below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would be thrilled to create a package for you that adds value to your business. From an ad hoc parenting article for your blog to a month’s worth of social media content…I can work in with your specific needs.
Thanks so much,
