GIRL ABOUT CONTENT EXPERT
Hi there, I’m Caroline!
If someone had have told me 10 years ago I would be running multiple businesses, be the go-to expert for content for a wonderful brand like Girl About & I would be creating content every day about things I am passionate about I wouldn’t have believed you! Yet here I am, living this life & encouraging others to do the same – All from a small town of Bingley in West Yorkshire.
I’ve loved writing since I was a little girl with an active imagination, making up stories & wanting to share them. For a few years, as I started my post-school career working in the corporate environment much of this creativity was squashed, in fact, I didn’t consider myself to be creative at all. During my last 9-5 job & with a mortgage to pay, I applied to go to my local University of Bradford to study Creative Writing & English Literature. It was during this time of having 4 jobs & studying I found freelance work working with small businesses. Social media was really in its infancy & so I spent hours learning about online marketing before ultimately starting my own blog.
For me, blogging is such a fun creative outlet & I loved building up my successful lifestyle blog. In 2017 I felt the need for a shift, I had more small business clients & people were always asking me about blogging so I decided to rebrand to The Content Edit & launch my first online course, Trigger Your Blog, in 2018.
Since the official launch of The Content Edit, I have loved helping bloggers & small business owners stand out online. At The Content Edit we share content about blogging, business, social media, travel & lifestyle – I still like to stick to my original blogging roots. As well as the online courses, we provide Instagram management & I am thrilled to have collaborated with some incredible brands, including Girl About.
I love sharing my skills & knowledge around blogging, business & the online world. I am so honoured to be working with Girl About to help the Girl About Blog Squad develop their own skills.
Alongside The Content Edit, I am also the co-founder of Voltage Sport a clothing company inspired by sport & fitness & in my spare time I love to go to the gym, watch a film or a good TV show, travel & enjoy a glass (or two) of prosecco!
Brands We Love
I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
It was a great way to see parts of Leeds you might otherwise miss on your daily commute. We had some delicious and varied food choices accompanied by some nice drinks along the way. I’d genuinely be so happy to get this as a Christmas present. I always imagined food tours might be a bit pretentious and maybe not the kind of thing my other half would enjoy, but this wasn’t at all. The type of food offed, as well as the beers, sampled definitely kept him happy!
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
I had already heard good things about Elements. Despite only just celebrating their first birthday, they’ve been nominated for two awards in Marketing Derby’s food and drink awards (Best Newcomer and Best Customer Service). Thanks to their beautifully curated Instagram feed they were firmly on my Girl About radar.
So when Elements got in touch to invite us to try their teddy bear’s picnic themed children’s menu I jumped at the opportunity. I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed a delicious lunch out with my toddler. We have loads of fun but I’d pretty much resigned myself that civilised lunches at nice places were largely a thing of the past. I was intrigued to see whether this was the answer. In the week or so before, Lily was bubbling with excitement. I remained somewhat sceptical.
Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.
