I'm an experienced freelance writer providing blog posts, web copy, and email copywriting to private clients. I also sell articles to magazines. In addition to my writing, I also provide editing services. When I edit, I don't just put your work into a grammar checker (as a matter of fact, I don't use one—they're rarely accurate). I read your work in detail, going line by line and offering suggestions to improve grammar, clarity, and flow.
In addition to writing and editing, I have many other interests and skills. I'm a multipassionate person, or what some call a "scanner" or "multipotentialite." My varied life experience means I can help out in many different ways and exchange many different services.
Some of the things I can offer:
Translations from Portuguese to English (and vice-versa). I am a native Brazilian Portuguese speaker and speak English as if it were my mother tongue.
Swing dancing instruction (Blues & Lindy Hop for leads as well as follows). I have been swing dancing for over 20 years.
Elimination Communication advice (how to help your baby be diaper-free). I used a combination of elimination communication (EC), cloth diapers, and disposables with all three of my children.
Cloth Diapering advice (see above).
Baby-led weaning advice (introducing actual solids rather than mush). I used this method with all three of my children.
Breastfeeding advice. I breastfed all three of my kids long-term.
Family Travel advice. I am currently on a 1-year tour of the US and Canada with my husband and three children ages 8, 6, and 4.
