Hi, this is Rita Hawkins. I write Stephenson County Spotlight which is an upbeat blog about the people, places, events in and around Stephenson County, IL.
Did you know that Stephenson County Spotlight has been in publication since April 2015? That’s two years. As its creator and writer, my goal is to expand readership and be able to share even more helpful information about community resources and events in and around Stephenson County, IL.
I appreciate receiving comments from people letting me know that the information I’ve circulated helped them. It takes time and effort to put a blog post together. It also takes a good chunk of thought, time, and effort to circulate the posts. I’ve been doing all of this for FREE for two years, wow!
I’ve connected with a lot of local people because of the blog. There’s a lot going on in Freeport and other small towns surrounding it. We have beautiful natural scenery in this area. I take many photos and will definitely be sharing more of them on Stephenson County Spotlight.
An unexpected byproduct of starting this blog has been that I’ve learned a lot about marketing, advertising, and social networking. I know how time-consuming it can be to get your message out to a wider audience.
If you’re a business owner who needs help reaching potential customers so you can focus on running your business, for a reasonable fee, you can use Stephenson County Spotlight to get the word out about what you’ve got going on.
If you need help with adding and circulating content about your business via social media, let’s chat about how to best achieve that goal.
To get in contact with me, message me on my Facebook business page Larita Hawkins Writing Services, or send me an email at RitaHawk17@comcast.net. You can read about the types and aspects of writing I’m able to help you with in the pinned post on the business page.
