Hey there, I’m Michelle!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am a writer, editor, and digital marketer with an eye for perfection and a knack for freelance success.

Within this site, you’ll find everything from book reviews to wedding planning tips to advice for writing the next great American novel. I’m sort of a jack of all trades in the world of digital publishing—and I’m taking you along for the ride.


So what is this site?

I like to think of my blog as a culmination of a lot of things. In short, it’s a “home base” for me and all of the things I do.

I like to write lifestyle-oriented blog posts from time to time, which is where this site began. I have a huge audience of college students (in part, because I recently was one myself!) who visit my site, learn some study tips, check out my outfit inspirations, read my career development advice, and look at my reviews on things like school supplies and planners. (Want to advertise to this market of over 20,000 students per month? Click here to learn more!) 

Additionally, I have been an editor of both fiction and nonfiction for several years, with experience in everything from blog listicles to full-length fantasy novels—and I want to share my expertise with you! From book marketing tips to pre-writing guidance, the other half of my blog is dedicated solely to helping writers succeed in the ever-changing world of publishing.

That includes doing book reviews for both traditionally published and self-published authors! (Want to have your book reviewed on my blog? Apply here!)

Currently, I work as an editor for an online newspaper, and I also have bylines on a bunch of online and in-print magazines and publications from across the U.S. I also work part time as a social media manager for an online company—so I have my hands full!

In addition to writing, I enjoy making music, reading classic literature, and taking adventures to new places, especially with my fiancé, Ryan (who makes cameos on my blog often). Fun fact: I also play a ton of different instruments, including clarinet, guitar, and piano!

If you want to get to know me even better, be sure to follow me on my official social media accounts (see below) and get connected! I’m constantly sharing great resources for writers and college students, so make sure you don’t miss them!
