A writer, editor, and WordPress nerd dedicated to helping you with quality content for your business.
I started Words By Birds in 2017 with a simple mission: to provide specialist technology copywriting and lift the quality of writing on the web.
I wanted to help businesses rise above the noise with quality content that people found useful and were delighted to read, but also played well with Google.
So, I’m working towards achieving that mission, one word at a time, helping small businesses, agencies, and corporates to produce amazing content. And I’m just getting started.
I write clever, creative copy your site visitors and readers will love. Sure, you want to know that I know my stuff, that I’ve worked with some great clients and that they like working with me (and continue to work with me).
You might even be interested to know that I won a bunch of awards during my years as a journalist for Australia’s biggest media companies, Fairfax Media and News Corp Australia.
Or that after studying computer science at university and beginning my career as a journalist, I switched to tech and led the content marketing team at WPMU DEV, the largest provider of premium WordPress products in the world, delivering web development resources to over 1.5 million visitors month.
But I think it’s more important to know that I’m a friendly and easy to deal with copywriter. When it comes to clients, I listen, I understand, and I help. You’ll find working with me stress-free and even enjoyable. Plus, you’ll get some great content, too.
"Rae has been an amazing partner for me since conceiving Typenest. We worked closely together to breathe life into my website, pre-launch. She really listened to my needs and delivered exactly the marketing copy and blog content I wanted. She’s forward-thinking and has an incredible eye for detail."
"Rae worked with us on our content strategy and was able to advise us on some quick wins that have helped us re-align our efforts and improve traction on our blog. We’re now seeing our blog in a whole new light."
"I’d hire Rae to edit something in a second. Having her on a project means that the language will not only be well-researched, beautifully written and thoughtfully edited, but also thoroughly considered and technically sound. Rae can take some of the most complex issues and present them in a friendly, easy to understand light."
"Rae is an absolute pleasure to work with, a true professional and creative writer genius! We have been working with Rae for many months now. I have found her to be originative, reliable, agile, intelligent, and hard working. Without a doubt, she is one of the most experienced WordPress writers whom I have ever worked with. I gladly recommend her to anyone, who is looking for a great all-round writer."
