Writing Portfolio

TL; DR

  • I write data-driven content for the web and social media.
  • I iterate daily and test content across several verticals.
  • I’ve written daily online since 12/1/21! 
  • I’m a 100% freelance remote worker (currently on U.S. Central time). 

More Details On What I Do

I write for a startup that works with startups! (My main gig). We don’t call ourselves “an agency.” We’re a startup! We work with B2B SaaS enterprises creating 🔥 social media content.

I joined the January, March, and April ’22 cohorts of 🚢 #Ship30for30! You can follow along on Typeshare.

On December 1, 2021 I began a 90-day Content Storm in which I will write and publish my work daily to the internet somewhere. This post explains how I’m doing this to see what consistency does for growing my audience.

I’m still writing daily and the #ContentStorm reached day #163 on 5/12/22!

What I Can Do For You 

I offer traditional and professional writing due to my background in journalism. This experience intersects with modern digital writing skills, content strategy, social media, and all other forms of data-driven writing and content creation. 

I can write content of any length or form.

I’m also familiar with audio editing, video editing, podcasting, commercial writing, SEO web copy, blogs, micro blogs, atomic essays, sub-atomic essays, Twitter threads, and TikTok.

Who is Heather Larson? 

A location-independent, remote-working, freelance writer specializing in content creation, strategy, and repurposing. 

I currently specialize in B2B enterprise SaaS social media content! Most often, I write about cybersecurity, AI, time-series databases, k8s, and open-source software. 

I have a BLS from Boston University; a 100-hour transformational life coaching certification from SIWHA in Tempe; several marketing certifications (see below); and am currently completing my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and 100-hour meditation teacher training. 

I run a Bitcoin ⚡️ lightning node on Umbrel and you should too in order to contribute to the health of the network and become self-sovereign. Also, Bitcoin. 

I worked in radio and TV broadcasting and consider myself a recovering journalist. I still have those skills but no one seems to want them! 😉

Writing Samples (Before 2021)

Can you trust a man who has a shower in his office? Published 2015 on the former TasteTablet.com. Read it here. For this article, I was hired to write a lifestyle-oriented piece targeted towards a young female demo. 

Some highlights from some of the news I covered on-air and online for KFDI News in 2019:

A fatal accident kills two family members of local musician, Jenny Wood, complete with photo taken by a colleague.

Online Feature Writing

Before I worked in TV news, I wrote online features freelance for HalogenTV.com in 2010-2011. This article is about an Iraq War Veteran walking across the U.S., whom I interviewed when he passed through Phoenix. 

This one is about celebrities raising money for kids with autism.

Here, I talked with country music singer Jimmy Wayne about his walk across America to raise awareness about kids aging out of the foster care system at 18.

In my writing and broadcasting career, I’ve always found opportunities for altruism and highlighting non-profit work. I also did 4.5 years of non-profit work in Kansas as a para-social worker for Substance Abuse Center of Kansas. 

Online Feature Writing — Music

Songwriter Kenny Nolan Talks About Writing “Lady Marmalade,” “My Eyes Adored You” And Other Hits. Read here.

An online review of Mana for Batanga.com — written in English by me as you see here — and later translated to Spanish. Still working on learning my Spanish! They sat music journalists front row for this one and it was still one of the most unforgettable concert experiences of my life. That was the day I became a fan. 

Online niche writing gigs

This was a fun, regular gig for CNET’s Webshots.com in which I wrote extremely short pieces. They were heavy on pop culture and links to help build up Webshots.com.

A blog for everything else

Everything Heather — (parked since 2015) My long-running blog about whatever I am interested in at the time. Over the years that has included marathon running and music journalism. I often blogged there about pop culture, food and post videos I make about my life or cat.

There is also this blog you’re reading now.
