PR Info

I’m Jessica Severson, a long-time blogger and social media user. I have a distinctive voice and I don’t scrimp on content. I am currently in the Boston area and love local events and working with local businesses.

Take a look at my full media kit here.

My blog focuses on the mundane and the sublime in the everyday with a relatively large dose of humor and no fear. I also have a preschooler with autism and have a specific focus on special needs. I  had my second child in 2012 and write a lot about infants, including my New Moms series.

I am a serious and devoted reader who enjoys reviewing books, specifically literary fiction and crime fiction. I do a weekly review column called Friday Reads where you can see my past reviews. I have reviewed books from major publishers, including Random House, Penguin Group, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan and others. For Book Reviews, I have accounts for digital ARCs at Netgalley and Edelweiss. 

My writing has been featured online at:

  • Parents Magazine
  • About.com
  • Double X Science
  • The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism
  • Save.com
  • Aiming Low
  • Honest Mom
  • Flappiness Is…
  • Scary Mommy

I was a weekly blogger writing a pregnancy journal for Isis Parenting, a Boston parenting hotspot with a strong social media presence. My pregnancy posts were also featured by nonprofit The Stork Fund, which supports healthy mothers and babies.

I am happy to work with brands that are affordable and fit with my lifestyle. I sell ad space on the sidebar and enjoy doing reviews, sponsored posts and giveaways for the right products. I won’t take on any sponsored work that doesn’t fit with the overall tone and theme of my blog, nor will I do any work that doesn’t have full disclosure of compensation.

When I work with a brand, my posts are not the usual skimpy write-up. I blog it, tweet it, facebook it, etc. But the real difference between me and other bloggers is that my post is going to be thorough, significant, honest and funny. I don’t want to bore my readers. You won’t see a two-paragraph write-up here.

 

I’m very active in social media. My stats as of 03/14/13:

Twitter followers: 1,796

Facebook fans: 332

Page views: 10,000 per month

I tweet around 30 times per day and do a lot of reaching out and interacting with my followers.
