(web) editor, writer, blogger, storyteller, translator
Writing and Editing | The Hague Area, Netherlands, NL
With my business SocialWords, I write blogs on demand, create content and tell stories using social media (tools). I edit and translate (web) texts in Dutch and English. I offer advice on content management (systems) and social media management and community management services made-to-fit.
Throughout my career, my passion has always been language and text and as the daughter of an author and a business correspondent, this is no small wonder... Though circumstances have often pushed me in other directions, I have always come back to writing. Blogging and editing for the first crowd-sourced publisher in the Netherlands, Content Collective, I quickly learnt the ropes of writing and editing specifically for the web. As a community manager for Meet the Creatives, I familiarized myself with connecting professionals and learned the power of telling stories using social media.
I witnessed the "birth" of social media and immediately adopted these into my everyday practice as an information professional, offering social media advice, training and management. I expanded my growing (online) network further and actively promoted digitization, the paperless office, smarter working and social business.
In 2014, I abandoned the field of information management to fully focus on writing and editing.
At the moment, I am working on the first of 6 book ideas.
