I started Social Butterflies because as a mother wanting to get back into work I didn’t feel there was a community that spoke to me. I didn’t identify with the whole ‘brand-mum’ phenomenon, but equally I felt locked out of the career world too. I wanted to create a community and a platform online (and offline) for women who want to connect, be inspired, learn from each other and hopefully enable future collaborations. I write about my own career journey (the highs and lows) and share my digital knowledge.
- INSPIRATION: interviews with women in business.
- RESOURCES: women share their expert business advice and knowledge.
- EVENTS: opportunities to make real life connections.
I’d love to hear from anyone who is interested in Social Butterflies: click here for more information.

“I live in Bristol with my husband and two children. We use to live in the badlands of Dalston, east London. I say badlands, but since we moved it’s become achingly trendy, (clearly our legacy lives on…). I’ve worked in publishing and marketing for over 16 years. I started this magazine after suffering a crisis of confidence (which has apparently lasted nearly seven years) but who’s counting? I took voluntary redundancy from my job at the Guardian, moved cities three weeks before giving birth and had to make new friends and connections all over again, before having another child in quick succession. Two house moves, one close bereavement later, and with both my children at school, I now work as a freelance digital content specialist alongside running Social Butterflies.”
