nDash Writer Profile for Sarah Hamelman


About Me

Hello! I have eight years of experience as a freelance writer. I'm well-versed in up-to-date SEO practices, educational blog writing, and creative essays.

By day, I am a homesteader in the remote mountains of northwestern Montana and a mother to two wild toddlers. I write about real estate, homesteading, finance, investments, small businesses, eco-friendly living, respectful parenting, and outdoor recreation in the evenings.

I spend most of my free time cooking from scratch, hiking, kayaking, trail riding, fishing, camping, and more.
I write about what I know and do daily, combining my experience with modern research and scientific studies. All of my research and studies come from credible, authoritative sources.

I also have four years of experience as an editor and proofreader. I know how to do high-performing keyword research and article outline creation. I'm proficient in ClearScope, SurferSEO, SEMRush, Ahrefs, Moz, Google Search Console, KWFinder, and LowFruits.io.

In addition to writing and editing, I have experience managing a team of ~20 writers. During my time as a manager, I researched SEO keywords, created topics for her writers' articles, ran a strict editorial calendar, managed my writers effectively (learned and accommodated each writer's personalities and needs), proofread, edited, and fact-checked their work, and published all articles to corporate websites.
