Portfolio

I’m Lydia,

Freelance Writer, Ghostwriter, Blogger, and more.

Welcome to my portfolio!

As a freelance writer, I craft content on an array of different topics. However, my niche is health, medical and lifestyle. From articles to blog posts, and everything in between, I create, edit, and provide content that is tailored for each individual project. My work is well researched, citied with only the most dependable of resources, and submitted on time with pressing deadlines. Although I am a seasoned writer, I am always adamant about sharpening my skills as such.

A Mighty Contributor, The Mighty

Since 2019, I’ve been a contributor to The Mighty, a health platform that highlights stories about the chronic illness journey and shares health content with over 2 million members.

From 2019-2020, three of my pieces were featured on Yahoo News, Yahoo Life, Yahoo Finance, and Yahoo Sports. These articles highlighted a rare disease, healthcare struggles with those without health insurance, and the difficulties of the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting in November of 2020, numerous of my articles on everything from chronic pain to mental health have been featured on Microsoft News (MSN).

Ghostwriter

As a ghostwriter, I write health and medical content that has been well researched for clients. I also create blog posts for small businesses, nonprofits, and blogs that offer life advice or target consumers. My average word count is between 500 and 750 for blog posts, and 1,000 and 3,000 words per article. I have also ghostwritten a 10,000 word book on the topic of grief.

Guest Column, The Virginian-Pilot

Contributing to Virginia’s top newspaper in print and online, I wrote a guest column for the Opinion section sharing the reality of life as a Medicaid patient in the state.

Guest Column, The Daily Press

This column was an Op-Ed for The Virginian-Pilot and The Daily Press, two newspapers located in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

Blog Contributor, Maple and Ember Stationery & Design

As a guest blog contributor to wedding website Maple and Ember Stationery & Design, I wrote a piece on 2022 wedding dress trends.

Guest Author, Baptist News Global

As a guest author for Baptist News Global, I have an Opinion piece on religious abuse and mental health published with this news site.

Proofreading

One of my favorite parts of my job is proofreading an unpublished work by an author. I generally read over 75,000 word projects, but less or more is always a plus to me. I write because I love to read, period.

Medium

On my downtime, I raise awareness about religious abuse towards women and children in isolated and extreme groups such as cults.

Personal Blog

In February of 2019, I started a personal initiative to blog about my time growing up, leaving and surviving a religious cult. Since then, Once Upon a Time in My Oceania has been featured on nonprofit websites to encourage victims of religious abuse and trauma to find help and hope.
