Sponsored by Mollie Makes

As Editor of Mollie Makes, Cath is passionate about creating unique content that connects with and inspires audiences.

Working in publishing for 10 years across titles including Your Hair, Quick Cards Made Easy and Perfect Wedding, she’s an expert in identifying your market and finding your publishing niche, both in print and digital. She’s passionate about magazine craft and believes that many of the principles applied to creating high-quality print products are just as relevant to bloggers looking to cement their presence online.

When she’s not surrounded by craft and creativity at Mollie Makes or freelance writing for a number of publications, Cath can usually be found hanging out with her two little cats, Posy and Mittens. She loves Sunday mornings spent with mugs of tea and stacks of magazines, espresso martinis, Margaret Atwood novels, yoga and oversized jumpers (preferably grey).

Cath’s workshop will help you identify your niche and position your work to best serve and grow within it. Drawing on the methods publications use when analysing the market, Cath will take you through exercises to bring clarity around your niche and the way forward for your site.

I've had a newsletter drafted for a couple of weeks but just never got around to finishing it. I gave myself a stern talking to today and it's now ready to go out at home time. Heaps of good links plus some company news for you to enjoy. Feels good to get it done, now to get next week's out on time too. What have you been putting off?

  • Four years ago we launched Blogtacular with our hearts in our mouths. We could never have predicted just where it would take us or how much of an impact it would make in people's lives & careers. Thank you everyone who has made the last four years so incredible and here's to another four years of magic. #blogtacular #blogtacularphotowalkeast
