Blogging for business

The home page of my award-winning personal blog, the Irish Current Affairs Blog of the Year

Does your small firm, start-up, or corporation have a story to tell? Would a blog, written by a professional writer, help you to reach or engage more with your growing on-line community?

Did you know that you can hire a professional blogger in Galway?

There are a host of new businesses out there, doing amazing work, and many of them don’t have the time or skills to tell their stories via an ‘in house’ blog.

So . . . that’s where I come in!

After more than 22 years in the newspaper industry, I decided to reinvent myself as a blogger, freelance journalist, content writer, and digital storyteller in late 2014.

Through my work with the Connacht Tribune, one of the biggest regional titles in Ireland, and national newspapers such as The Irish Times, I had established a reputation for fairness and accuracy while writing about a broad spectrum of subjects.

As the digital economy takes off, and more and more businesses are getting their messages across via their own websites, there has never been a better time to get a company’s message across via a lively, informative blog.

A blog allows you to get your company’s message across and to keep your customers or community informed about what you are up to.

It doesn’t matter if you are a tiny start-up or a major multi-national, getting your message across via an authentic, well-written, regular blog can be a great way of reaching and expanding your customer base.

Many businesses need quality bloggers or content writers and, after more than 22 years as a full-time journalist, I still love to write!

My own personal blog, which ranges from political rants to observations about health or family matters, can reach upwards of 30,000 readers at a time thanks to social media shares.

In recent years, I have written regular blogs for a language school, a language agency, a mindfulness teacher, a small yoga centre, and an arts centre on a small off-shore island. Each of them has amazing stories to tell!

My tribute to my late grandmother which appeared on Irish Central, following my blog post

A blog post I wrote about my late grandmother, Mary Kilroy, was picked up and used as a news article by in August 2016. I was a regular contributor to that site, based in New York, until the coronavirus pandemic restrictions hit online advertising across the globe in April 2020.

I now blog regularly for a small number of clients, arranging meetings by Zoom or Skype in which the business owners tell me what they are up to and the latest news they want to get across to their growing customer base. A well-written blog can really boost your online presence!

Providing fresh content, which can be shared via social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, allows your customers to keep abreast of what your company is up to.

For a reasonable fee, I can write engaging content on behalf of your company which will get your message out there in the blogsphere.

I have a keen interest in business, sport, scuba diving, travel, social justice, politics … and I’m open to consider any offers if you are seeking a blogger to keep your customers informed.
