Dorset Mummy Writes

Dorset Mummy Writes

I'm Rochelle and I write a  blog - Dorset Mummy Writes. 

This blog came about in part so I could keep up my journalistic skills and write regularly but also so I could talk about the area where I live, my life as a mummy here and how the two hopefully work so well together.

On top of that, I'm also working to establish myself as a copywriter and proofreader so life is fun, but pretty hectic!
