Freelancer

I’ve been blogging about food since 2015 on EatsLeeds.co.uk* and ZoePickburn.com and began creating foodie content for bloggers and businesses on a freelance basis not long after.

Writing & photographing food content on my first blogs, I learned everything as I went.

Now, the core of my business uses the parts of blogging that I really excel at (and enjoy) to produce original content for food businesses & blogs.

Credentials & experience

Food blogging is where I cut my teeth with writing and content.

I started and grew my first food blog, EatsLeeds.co.uk, from the ground up, learning everything as I went (and it was a steep learning curve).

Over the past few years I’ve run and contributed to various blogs in the food niche, including EatsLeeds and my own food blog on ZoePickburn.com.

I have had my food writing published on other blogs & sites as guest posts or ghostwritten content – you can see samples in my portfolio below.

I work part-time in content & digital marketing (planning and producing blogs, website content, email marketing copy and social media) for a B2B SaaS business at Go2Stream.com

I also have over a decade’s experience working ‘on the ground’ in various food & beverage, retail and hospitality roles
