Hi, new friend! I’m Sam, the boss lady behind this site. I’m really excited you’ve stopped by! I’m a freelance writer, blogger, new mom, dog rescuer, bookworm, and popcorn addict.
I’ve been putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard, since college, where I majored in English Literature and spent many a nights writing essays at the last minute. I really do work best under pressure. I began my professional writing career as a contributing writer for a national men’s lifestyle publication. I wrote about fine spirits and creative cocktails in Cigar & Spirits Magazine for two years, and decided to take a break when I found out I was pregnant. Turns out, writing about alcohol is only fun when you can drink it. Since then, I’ve built a freelance writing business from the ground up by helping a variety of businesses reach their ideal clients by using an authentic and relatable voice.

My house can be a little chaotic at times. We currently have four dogs (all rescues of course), and a very strong-willed toddler. I know, it sounds crazy, but we make it work. Things got even crazier when my husband and I found out that we are expecting baby number 2 in January 2019. My husband balances out all the craziness in a way only he could. It’s cliche to say, but I really am pretty lucky.
My goal here is to share; share laughs, share struggles, share insight. I want to share all of this with you, because let’s be honest, we’re all just doing our best. Blogging and writing can be freaking hard, especially when you add in everything else life throws at you. Sometimes, you just want to know that you’re not alone (and a giant glass of wine), and you’re not. I’m here. 🙂
On my blog, I want to share as much as I can with you about the wonderful (and overwhelming) world of blogging and writing; but I will dabble in a few other fun topics from time to time. As a working mom and freelance writer, I will do my best to share tangible and effective advice, with some of my trademark sass, of course. Ready for some serious knowledge? Click here to learn more.
