About

Welcome to Brighter Blogging!

You’ll find regular posts here (normally Tuesdays and Fridays) to help you go forward with your own blogging journey.

To make sure you don’t miss out on new posts, just sign up for the newsletter here. You’ll get an email each Friday with a round-up of the posts from that week:

Why “Brighter Blogging”?

All the other names I thought of were taken. 😉

Seriously, though, I love “Brighter Blogging”. It helps encapsulate my three-fold mission here:

  • To shine a light on what matters and what works (so you can safely ignore everything else).
  • To share smarter ways of blogging — at every level.
  • To promote good, ethical blogging that helps you and your readers.

About Ali

I’m Ali Luke and I’ve been blogging for eleven years now.

Along the way, I’ve had several blogs: a couple didn’t last long, but my blog Aliventures (which is all about the craft, art and business of writing) has been going in one form or another since 2009.

I’m a regular writer for ProBlogger (I’m their subject matter expert on “content”) and you’ll find me popping up on lots of other large blogs on blogging/writing related topics, too.

I’m also a freelance blogger for lots of different sites – several of those as a ghostwriter. My client list is super-full right now, but if you’re interested in hiring me, drop me a line (ali@brighterblogging.com) and we’ll see if we can work something out. 🙂

I live in Leeds in the UK with my husband and our two kids: my daughter’s six and my son’s four.
