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 recently had my second child 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, Viking, Penguin, Knopf, Crown, Doubleday and others. For Book Reviews, I have accounts for digital ARCs at Netgalley and Edelweiss. 4 out of my 10 most-visited posts for 2011 are book reviews and it’s also my highest source of search traffic.
My writing has been featured online at:
- Parents Magazine
- Double X Science
- The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism
- Aiming Low
- Honest Mom
- Flappiness Is…
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.
- Clever Girls Collective
- Boston Parent Bloggers
- Collective Bias Social Fabric Community
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.
