If you haven’t already heard, gurl’s been workin’ her butt off as a freelance writer for around three months now.
There’s been highs, there’s been lows – but overall I’m having an absolute blast. I absolutely love working for myself, making my own hours, and deciding who I want to work with – I feel like I was meant to have my own business and be a solopreneur!
I feel fortunate in the sense that I’ve already written for a number of businesses and publications in different niches. My favourite niches to write in are, of course, fashion and travel. But I’m also really enjoying drawing from my own experiences in the psychology, dating and relationships niche. Just call me the next Carrie Bradshaw! (I wish.)
I realise that I’m not sharing my work with you lovely lot as much as I probably should – or, rather, I haven’t yet. Therefore, I’m thinking of making this post a monthly thang. Let me know if you’re keen? You can comment below or just hit me up on Twitter @kdavieswrites.
Oh, and you’re very welcome to check out my business blog if you’re interested in how freelance writing works behind the scenes. I had to do so much research into it before I kickstarted my business, and it’s super interesting!
Without further ado, here are just a few of my favourite articles I’ve written recently.
I actually wrote this piece back in May for fashion eyewear brand Zylina. (And I’ve just recently joined the team as a regular writer – woo! But I digress.)
In this article, I explore the subject of sustainable and ethical fashion, and what we can do as consumers to help with both the environmental and ethical issues that are still a concern in the industry today.
If you’re a regular reader of KatieKat, you’ll know that I absolutely adore Singapore. It’s one of my favourite places that I’ve been to in the world so far!
In this piece for adventure blog At Home on the Go, I talk about how’s best to spend your time in this amazing metropolis as a first-time visitor.
Life and Happiness
I was a regular writer for psychology, dating and general advice blog Practical Pie throughout the whole of last month.
It was my idea to write this article as a fun little reminder of what life is all about! I really enjoyed producing this piece so I hope you enjoy reading it!
Health and Well Being
I’ve never really spoke about this before on this blog, or online in general, so it’s kind of a huge deal for me! It makes me nervous, but we really need to get rid of this stigma around mental health.
Throughout my university years, I struggled on and off with depression and anxiety. I still struggle from time to time. (If you’d like me to do a post where I talk about my personal journey with mental illness, then please let me know!)
When the opportunity came up to write for mental health community Sad Runner, I jumped. I wanted to share my own personal battle in order to potentially help someone else with theirs. So I wrote this piece. And Sad Runner loved it enough to publish it.
Dating and Relationships
I’ve been writing for dating advice blog Go Dates ever since I started this whole freelance writing biz. It’s such a laugh!
This article is supposed to be taken with a pinch of salt; it talks about how men will never understand women and women will never understand men! It’s a bit of fun, it’s tongue-in-cheek, and it was a blast to write.
I think I’ve sorted you out with enough reading material to get you by for at least a good half an hour – so you better get started!
Being a newbie when it comes to freelance writing, I still get shy about my work, so please be kind! I’d love to hear your thoughts on these articles but, if I don’t hear from you, I’m still very grateful to you for reading the entirety of this post!
Your support means everything to me, so thanks a lot!
