Writing, Editing and Coaching Service

I offer writing, editing and blog coaching services. If you’re interested in kicking your writing and social presence up a notch, keep reading to find out how I can help YOU.  

First impressions. 

Let’s talk about first impressions for a minute. Your blog or website makes a first impression on your potential readers and that first impression helps them decide to keep reading or to keep scrolling. Did you know your chance to make a good first impression in the digital space lasts about three seconds before the reader moves on?

Are you wondering if your website and social presence are making the right first impression?

Is your desired reader getting the message you think you’re sending?

I can help you.

Are you looking for someone to write copy that POPS for your blog or website? Do you spend hours sweating and fretting over your “about me” page, press release or making sure that important blog post is sending the exact message you want it to send?

I’m your girl.

Are you a kick-ass visual marketer who can craft the perfect photo backdrop or snap together an Instagram photo that will skyrocket to the top of everyone’s feed because it’s just that awesome to look at? Are you at the top of the heap when it comes to aesthetics but so-so when it comes to stringing the word story together?

Strong social media needs strong writing and I can help you get both. You can have it all.

That’s where I come in. It’s what I do.

Are you new to blogging and/or submitting to larger websites but just don’t have the confidence or the experience to figure out whether or not you’re going in the right direction in this often overwhelming digital Wild West?

I’m a professional writer with over three years of experience. My work has appeared in the Washington Post, Woman’s Day, Good Housekeeping, The Huffington Post, Babble, Scary Mommy, Your Tango, and Collective Bias, just to name a few. I have experience writing about parenting, health, lifestyle, relationships and social media. My blog, Ripped Jeans and Bifocals, has received several awards and honorable mentions. I love what I do.

It’s been a longtime goal of mine to create a service that will help new (and not so new) bloggers and freelance writers. All of us have had that “Am I even doing this right?” feeling at one time or another, and that’s totally normal.

Let’s work together. 

Here are a list of my services offered and prices. If you don’t see what you need, I can design a custom package.

First Impressions Package – $50.00

I’ll give you a detailed write-up of a first-time user’s impression of your blog or website, including design and layout, ease of navigation, icon placement, about me/work with me sections, readability, and more.

Also included: An assessment of your blog or website’s representation on up to four social channels. I’ll give you the straight scoop on how well your social media presence meshes with your blog or website and provide you between five and 10 actionable tips to help you tweak your blog and social media strategy.

Copywriting – $25 and up

Do you struggle with crafting your “about me” page or your writer’s bio? You are not alone – writing about ourselves and tooting our own horn can be hard. I can craft a clean, interesting “about me” page that lets your personality and expertise shine through. Let me help you get the page that gets attention!

Most “about me” pages run $25.00. Other writing such as blog posts, press releases, webinar scripts, email sequences or marketing materials are priced per job.

Editing – $10 and up

I can clean up stray typos in your blog posts and help you get rid of that annoying passive voice. I’m up for looking at that one special piece of writing you want to be just so, working with bundles of posts or taking care of your editing needs on a recurring basis. I’m also available for longer form projects, such as manuscript editing.

Kitchen Sink Consultation – $35 per hour

No, I can’t assist you with your plumbing needs or give you tips on how to keep those dirty dishes from magically appearing in your kitchen sink but I can sit down with you over coffee, either virtually or in person* and talk to you about your writing and blogging goals. I can answer questions about freelancing, make recommendations for conferences and courses, chat about social media or look at drafts of blog posts, articles or landing pages. If it’s related to my skillset and you want to pick my brain about it, let’s do it.

If this sounds like it was written with you in mind then let’s work together. Email me at rippedjeansandbifocalsblog@gmail.com and we’ll get started.

I can’t wait to hear from you – let’s get started!
