  1. Hello there, I read the “Tips to be productive while working at home” piece you did, great stuff.

    I came here and had a look around. Can you give me more information as to what a/you as a Content Strategist do day by day, i’m looking at getting into marketing (not sure what sector of marketing) and want to know every aspect of it, of course I could google it but I would love to hear from yourself as to what your day to day jobs are what the role as a whole if full off.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.


  2. I just read your article on how the internet works – great job! Over the years, I’ve tried to explain the internet, but your combination of illustration/analogy is easy to explain and understand. Thank you!
