Kombucha, not beer (unfortunately).

Let me help you get results by writing quality content and guest posts for you.

If you need a reputable freelance copywriter with a proven track record for writing top-quality articles that are engaging, helpful and easy to read, then you’ve landed in the right place.

The benefits of blogging from a marketing perspective are significant, but business owners often don’t have the time to blog consistently. That’s where I come in.

Chomping at the bit to get started? Get in touch now and we’ll discuss your copywriting needs over coffee (virtual or IRL)! Or, keep readin’.

I have been published in Oprah Magazine (SA), I’m a regular contributor at Care2.com and I’ve been featured on a number of other popular blogs as well, including Becoming Minimalist, Writers Weekly and The Write Life.

I’m also the content half of the duo behind Mostly Mindful, a blog that makes minimalism more-ish. Here I write mainly about the benefits of a life with less stuff, eating a plant-based diet and living sustainably in the city. Our Start Here page is, as the name suggests, a good place to start. It has a list of our Top 10 posts and there’s a photo of a cute puppy (not ours).

By working with me you can expect a professional and efficient service (and so you should, since you’re the one laying your hard-earned dosh on the line here). I pride myself on producing only the best content. In short, if I’m not comfortable putting my name on it, I won’t put yours on it either.

For me, a satisfied customer is the only kind of customer I want. To make this happen I’ll do as many revisions as it takes to ensure a final product we’re both happy with. That said, revision requests are extremely rare.

Why a News Fast Is the Best Thing You’ll Do All Year

As a kid growing up in South Africa in the eighties, the news interrupted our steady diet of Magnum PI, MacGyver and Knight Rider on only two occasions each evening. The shorter 6pm bulletin offered a brief overview of the day’s headlines, while the lengthier half hour edition at eight provided a more detailed account. Compared to the 24/7 barrage of information we’ve been conditioned to expect nowadays, we were positively uninformed back then. Or were we? [Read more]

10 Ways to Be More Positive Online (and Make a Difference at the Same Time)

Bad news is everywhere these days. It’s there when you switch on the television. It’s there when you glance at the newspaper headlines and most insidiously, it’s there when you open your social media platform of choice. The thing is, there’s just as much, if not more, good news out there. It’s just getting lost in the fray of negativity. We can change that though, if we all make an effort to be more positive online. [Read more]

If the article delivers on its headline promise, you’ll be 103 ways better off. Unfortunately, it’s more often than not wishy-washy clickbait. [Read more]

People I’ve worked with only have good things to say about me. (I bought them all chocolate for Christmas, but I don’t think that swayed their opinion in any way.)

Carey Kingsbury, CareyAvalon.com

Angela is thorough, consistent and inventive as a writer. She adapts quickly and intuits the style and voice necessary for each project. Her assignments are always completed on time and she has been a pleasure to work with. I recommend Angela as a highly qualified writer.

Angela and I took the beginnings of a social media plan at the Western Cape Government and put our heads together to overhaul the approach, style, and strategy completely, growing brand engagement by 300% within three months. She has mastered the art of converting official proclamations into straightforward language that communicates clearly and with personality.
