Like most freelancers, I’ve been spreading my editorial wings as traditional commissions get scarcer.
Writing content for travel websites is one of my new directions and the following set of links to five blog posts I created for Visit Wales are a good example of where I’d like to go.
The work was rewarding, the discipline of working online stimulating and the good, old-fashioned principles of angles, accuracy and telling a personal story transferred well to the new medium.
The ideas was simple. To walk sections of the then-forthcoming Wales Coast Path (more about the opening), meet some local characters for human interest and include lots of local colour, combining elements of travel and nature writing.

The five posts, written between February and May 2012, are as follows:
