As well as writing for my own blog, I’ve appeared in magazines, on podcasts, on the radio, on other blogs and on various other places around the web. Some of these I’m happy to share and promote, whilst the others I’m going to blame on too much alcohol and an experimental period of my life…
Below is a comprehensive list – so I don’t forget, rather than being a boast – of the various appearances I’ve made outside of this blog. If you’d like me to provide content or opinion on anything you’re planning, you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my work with me page to learn more about how I collaborate with brands.
