Specialising In Creating Copy & Content For You And Your Business


A Little Bit About Me

My name is Becky Greaves, although these days I am better known as The Mindful Gingernut.

I am a freelance content and copywriter and I love to help small businesses by doing the jobs they do not have time to do but are an essential part of their business.

I have loved writing for as long as I can remember. When I left university in 2005, armed with a degree in Geography with Third World Development, I had every intention of jetting off into the sunset to become a travel writer. That did not quite go to plan. Instead, I found myself in what would turn out to be a 14-year career in football governance.

As well as helping small businesses with their content and copywriting, I also have a vast amount of experience in the football industry. Whether you are looking for advice on using the Whole Game System, or you need assistance with your club’s social media, please get in touch.

    I was starting to think this year couldn’t get any weirder, but it did.  April was a strange month in many ways. It was time to readjust as lockdown measures continued to ease here in the UK, with two households or groups of six now able to meet outdoors and restaurants, pubs and cafes with…
  • My Top #5 Apps for Newbie Freelance Writers
    Earlier this year, I snowballed into the world of writing. As much as I knew I wanted to chase a career as a freelance writer, I was starting everything from scratch.  Up until that point, I’d spent most of my adult life working in sports governance. I had a massive network in football, but I…
