Welcome to my blog. If you have stumbled across the random gatherings of my thoughts, then I’m doing something right with SEO or social media marketing.
I’m Sarah O’Brien – a full-time content writer who has to limit her caffeine intake and put a cap on her obsession with cats (there are too many dog people in the world anyway).
I love to write and can adapt to any topic from travel to politics and relatable life hacks.
I spent the first six months after graduating from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Communications working for a local print publication, Coalface Magazine.
I then joined the realm of anonymous faces, writing content for a network of 50-plus websites, adapting to topics I knew little about (hey there research skills). I have developed my digital skills, working through the backend of WordPress, using SEO best practices to impress Google. I also use title and meta tags to get the attention of those who use Google.
In my spare time (and why I neglect the poor blog), I have written a science fiction novel, which takes place in a dystopian setting. That sentence just there was an example of poor SEO practice since it’s the most common description of a book these days. But what makes my novel unique is it focuses on mental illness. If you want to know more, shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have also replaced the word’s of Coldplay’s ‘No one said it was easy’ with ‘No one said the publishing process was easy’. If you had a fear of rejection, writing a novel and submitting it to agents and publishers would be a perfect example of the exposure method. Persistence is key, though. Eventually, people just get annoyed and publish you so hopefully, my name is on a paperback one day (I have a common name so I’ve probably already achieved my goal).
My favourite pastime is to annoy my cat, which was what I was doing during the two-year gap between the 2016 to 2018 posts. It is also probably what I will be doing during the next gap too.
