Profile:  Linda Hobbis, Founder & Editor

I am a 50-something blogger with over 20 years’ experience of professional services marketing and PR who can help promote your brand in a creative and a professional way.

I am an English Literature Graduate from the University of Wales and have a keen interest in creating compelling content.  I have excellent writing, editing and proofreading skills.

After becoming a mother in my forties (twice!), I have a unique perspective on family life and love to share my experiences of parenting at the other end of the age spectrum.
