Work With Me

Since 2008, my blogs have been helping expats understand more about life abroad, particularly life in the Netherlands as an expat. I blog about culture, language, the ups and downs of an expat life, about raising a family in a country you weren’t born in, about being the British mother of Dutch children, about life as a dual national and an adopted Dutchie. I blog about the practical aspects of life abroad, and I blog about the emotional and intangible aspects of a life abroad. I tell living abroad like it is.

About Me

How Can We Work Together?

I am passionate about supporting expats, particularly those thinking about or those already living in the Netherlands. I am also excited to share my love of the Netherlands with the rest of the world. I would therefore love to hear from you if you provide a service or a product that you feel is of specific interest to my readers.

There are several ways we can work together and I am open to ideas:

Guest Posts: I love having guest bloggers sharing their talents on Turning Dutch and look forward to discussing a collaboration.

Product reviews: I am happy to test and review any product of interest to the expatriate community, particularly those who have made a home in the Netherlands. I am also happy to test, read or review products aimed at parents.

Giveaways: I will host giveaways that are relevant to my target audience. Please contact me for to discuss proposals further.

Sponsored Posts: I am open to writing sponsored posts that will be of interest to my readers and that I am personally able to endorse.

I will also consider company written posts that advertise services relevant for the Turning Dutch audience. Contact me for current rates for both instances.

Please email me to discuss your idea further. I look forward to hearing from you!
