Hey! I am Margot Carmichael…freelance content writer, photographer, and creative entrepreneur!
If I had to pick one word to describe myself it would be CREATIVE. I love doing anything that involves an element of creativity, especially writing and photography. Most of my life, these two things have been mere hobbies…but about a year ago, I made the leap and decided to turn my love of writing into a full-time career.
I love doing anything that involves an element of creativity, especially writing and photography. Most of my life, these two things have been mere hobbies…but about a year ago, I made the leap and decided to turn my love of writing into a full-time career.
Quite simply, I love words. There is nothing quite as satisfying for me as creating the perfect combination of words that have the potential to enlighten minds, inspire change, and impart knowledge…not to mention, entertain readers!
However, while writing has always been my passion, it hasn’t always been my primary career. I spent the first four years post-grad school teaching 4th grade. I adored teaching and I will always be grateful for my time spent in the classroom – it allowed me to explore a different side of my creativity. And it led me to my current writing endeavors!
Now, we all know that teaching isn’t exactly a money-maker! So, during my last year of teaching, I began exploring freelance writing on the side as a supplemental income to my meager teacher’s salary. Within a few months, I had a growing clientele and I knew that it was now or never if I wanted to give 100% of my time and effort to writing.
And here we are!
Me As a Writer…
My main focus as a writer is content writing/web copy and blogging. I’ve written for a variety of blogs and online publications, helping my clients increase traffic to their websites thanks to my ability to write original, engaging content, my understanding of SEO, and my extreme attention to detail.
However, I’m also well-versed in both technical & creative writing, curriculum design, PowerPoint design, re-writing, and article writing.
I’ll be honest, as a writer, I feel like a bit of a chameleon.
Naturally, my writing has an easy, conversational tone. But when necessary, I’m able to shift into any number of different writing styles with ease – technical and explanatory, polished and professional, persuasive, informative, etc. I pride myself on being well-versed on a variety of topics, thanks to my wide variety of life experiences.
I’m knowledgeable about and love writing about education, health and fitness, DIY and decor, pet care, food and cooking, marriage and divorce, cancer, medical marijuana, and both domestic and international travel…just to name a few!!
Beyond Being a Writer…
Let’s be honest, writing is pretty much my entire life right now….but, when I’m not writing I love being outdoors. I currently live in Roswell, GA which allows me to do all kinds of outdoor things like biking, hiking, walking my beloved English Bulldog, and exploring all the outdoor fun that Georgia has to offer. I also love redecorating and rearranging – my home never looks the same from one week to the next!
And since I’ve mentioned several times that I love all things creative, I also enjoy doing photography both professionally and for fun! I studied photography in undergraduate school and I love that feeling of setting up a perfect shot to create that one-of-a-kind photograph.
