Welcome to Simplify Create Inspire
The goal in creating this blog was to record the journey of simplifying my life and finding that elusive work/life balance. Both of these are goals of so many other women (and men) in similar situations to my own, therefore others were bound to benefit from such a journey.
My readership most typically falls within the 25-45 year age bracket, with predominately female readers who are single, or married, with or without kids. I have a large audience from both Australia, where I am from, and the USA, as well as followers from other countries. My readers tend to be a mix of professionals, juggling work and home life, as well as many SAHM and WAHM parents.
I also have social media accounts set up at Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram, all of which receive good interaction and are increasing in following. Through social media I share a mix of both personal and blog related posts, while engaging with others. My email list is growing rapidly and I send regular updates to my subscribers.
I was part of the 2015 Becky Higgins Project Life Creative team, connecting with a broad range of fellow creatives from around the world in our shared passion of memory keeping. I am also a Jamberry Australia independent consultant.
As writing has always been a passion, I have previously engaged in regular content creation for Brisbane Kids and The Colourful Housewife websites. I am always happy to consider future freelance opportunities if you are needing content created either short or long term.
I have been a contributor for ParentTalk Australia, which aims to become the leading place for sharing content of interest for parents and families with more than 90 contributors on board and I provide occasional content for Family Living Magazine.
I have had my written work featured in print and digital magazines, including the following.
Family Living Magazine – March 2015 Issue
The Sunday Brunch (digital) – April 2015 Issue
The Sunday Brunch Magazine (digital) – May 2015 Issue

Advertising and Sponsorships
I love the opportunity to work with brands I am passionate about and those which I believe would benefit my readers. I am open to sponsored content and social media features, product reviews, advertising spots, brand ambassador and event involvement. I am also happy to get involved in ongoing promotions if they are relevant to the interests of myself and my readers.
Blog advertising is available on the sidebar, to be purchased in monthly increments, for standard 300 x 250 pixel ad, with discounts offered for extended periods of 3 months or more.
