Work with Me: Tamlyn Amber Wanderlust

Work with Me

Since 2016, I have enjoyed writing, freelancing, sub-editing and ghost-writing for several online publications and blogs. I have also been actively blogging on WordPress-based sites since 2014 so I am well-familiar with the platform.

And with my writing background (a National Diploma in Journalism) and six years’ worth of blogging, travel writing and social media experience across multiple platforms, I have a good handle on both online writing and general sub-editing.

I am also familiar with Yoast SEO, Google Analytics and keyword research.

In addition to my own writing, I also really enjoy sub-editing for others… Since 2016, I have even been sub-editing for international travel blogNon Stop Destination.

What I Offer:

  • Sound, speedy sub-editing. This has a distinct focus on grammar, punctuation and factual research… I believe this ensures more error-free writing and copy.
  • Efficient, adaptive freelance writing offered. (We can discuss possible travel, accommodation, restaurant or lifestyle topics.)
  • Ghostwriting – meaning you receive all the online credit and recognition. For this, I do not require a byline, word of thanks or mention/tag.
  • Content planning for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.
  • Uploading content and images to WordPress-based sites.
  • Scheduling social media posts on Buffer or Facebook.
  • Providing or sourcing quality photos. My specialty when it comes to my own photography is macro/outdoor photography.
  • Possible guest blogs/paid post collaborations. (These are shared across my blog and social platforms. Posts may include embedded links of your choice.)
  • Helpful tips and positive, constructive feedback provided with subbed content.
  • Reasonable rates and flexible or set deadlines, as you require. Deadlines may range from one day to a month… Provided I receive fair notice (a minimum 24 hours) and have adequate availability.

How I Can Help

If you require someone to help ease your writing workload or check for small mistakes (which can be hard to pick up yourself, even when you meticulously self-edit), I am happy to assist.

I am very good at meeting deadlines and am a fast writer/sub-editor.

What’s more, I am constantly trying to improve my own writing, online content and social media skills. This means that we can learn together.

Please note: As I work a full-time day job, which I am happily dedicated to, I can only assist in a strictly part-time, after-hours capacity. This applies to my offered services, as well as blog collaborations and sponsored content.

Important Notices

All services listed under ‘What I Offer’ are individually billed. Out of fairness, service requirements and rates are generally agreed to on a client-to-client basis.

Please note:

When it comes to subbing, my focus is on punctuation and grammar. I do not viciously slash, critique or (needlessly) rewrite the writer’s original work… Instead, I try to gently improve and enhance your writing.

I want to help ensure that everything is as grammatically and factually correct as possible. My aim is to provide writing/copy that flows freely and logically.

Let’s Talk Guest Posts

I am open to guest posts on my blog – but have set rules that must be agreed to first.

To propose or enquire about guest posts, please email me at: tamlyn.ryan63[at]gmail.com.

Guest and Paid-for Posts

  • All posts must be vetted and approved of by me before I will agree to publish them anywhere. This may involve small grammatical or language changes, in accordance with my blog’s style and voice. (For example, I only use UK spelling.)
  • All content must be in line with my blog’s travel theme. Anything travel-related is great – but only travel content will be featured. This may include: general travel experiences, eco-friendly travel, restaurants or accommodation posts.
  • While my blog predominantly revolves around my home country, South Africa, I am certainly open to global content. But it must fall in line with my blog’s style and feel. And naturally, it must be relevant to my readers and blog.

Paid Posts – Ts and Cs

  • I charge a set fee for guest posts. (Please email me for more information).
  • Payment must be made within 24 hours of publication. This can be done via either PayPal or EFT.
  • Failure to make payment will result in the post being removed from my blog and social media feeds. (Note: If payment cannot be made within 24 hours of publication, we must set an agreed upon date and this date must be adhered to. For these rare exceptions, I also require a payment notification as proof.)
  • I firmly believe in ethical blogging so all ‘paid-for’ posts use strictly no-follow links. No exceptions will be made. If you wish to include do-follow links in your paid posts, please rather find another platform to publish your content on.
  • All paid guest posts will state that they have been done in collaboration with Tamlyn Amber Wanderlust. They will also carry a disclaimer on my blog and social media. This shows my readers that it is a paid/sponsored post.
  • Occasionally, I agree to unpaid guest posts… But this must be discussed on a case-by-case basis with me.
  • As this is my blog, I reserve the right to decline any content without explanation, be it paid or unpaid.

Additional Ts and Cs

  • Word count for posts is a minimum of 500 words. However, 800-1500 words per post is preferred. (Note: My rates vary depending on word count/post length.)
  • All posts should include at least 3-5 photos, if not more. Photos must be of a high quality. Photos cannot be smaller than 750 x 500.
  • All photos – if not yours or your company/representative’s – must be credited and/or copy-right free. If it is a struggle for you to secure such photos, I am able to easily source or provide photos.
