Hi, I’m Charlotte. It’s great to meet you. So, who am I? As is the case for many of us, my answer to this question has many parts. I’m the mother of the world’s most energetic toddler. I’m married to a very nice and tall man. I’m the middle child between two brothers I now like. I am friends with some truly excellent people. I work freelance as a journalist and copywriter, and in-house as a marketing director. I cry incredibly easily and all the time. I live in London in a flat I adore and THANK GOODNESS because you don’t really go out all that much when you’re a parent. I like reading. I like wearing bright colours and clashing patterns because it’s fun and makes getting dressed quicker. I know that I wear more mascara than I should. I don’t care for cheesecake at all.
What’s this blog all about?
I started this blog because I love to write. I still write this blog because I love to connect with people. Sharing posts about things I’ve been through, lessons I’ve learnt, and the various ups and downs I’ve faced have helped me reach people I know and people I don’t in ways I couldn’t have done otherwise. It’s a joy and a privilege to have a place I can go online to say what I have to say – about relationships, about work, about being a mum, about growing up – and if you’ve taken the time to stop by and have a read, that makes it even better.
What freelance work do I do?
You can see examples of my freelance work and experience here. I’m a journalist, copywriter and copyeditor. I can turn my hand to pretty much any subject, I’m quick, and I take deadlines extremely seriously. Whether you need help telling a great story or some sharp copy to explain what you have to say, I’d love to help.
If you have thoughts on this blog, you’d like to work with me or if you just feel like saying hello, you can leave me a comment on a post, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on Twitter or Instagram @CharlotteBuxto. I will always respond, I bloody love post.
