About/Contact Me

I am a thirtysomething lifestyle, mama and travel blogger who occasionally writes about other topics. My blog’s sole mission is to help people do stuff better. You could say it’s a self-improvement blog but that sounds like it would involve waking up at 5am to do yoga. I only wake up at 5am if one of my babies needs a nappy change.

I write a lot of how-to articles to help readers.

Within travel, for the first four years of this blog, I tended to write mostly about Europe as that was where I’d been. In 2017 I moved to China and became a digital nomad, and am currently based in Ireland.

My main job is writing steamy romance books under pen names, my main pen name is Katie Douglas. As a writer, I have hit the USA Today bestseller list twice. I’ve also written articles that are published in Offbeat Bride and on Buzzfeed, and as a photographer, I have taken photographs that are published in local and national news outlets in the UK.

MamaAdventure.com was re-registered with its current domain name in April 2020. Prior to this, the site was frequently getting about 3000-5000 hits a day, mostly from search engine traffic, but is currently suffering from loss of all its backlinks, something I’m currently working on.

Steve Jobs said “don’t sell crap” and I don’t.  I have full control over the ultimate content of this site and I only recommend products where they have honestly done the thing I said they did.  Unfortunately, I do very occasionally have to handle writing a negative review, but this is why my readers trust me.

Work with me:

I am currently in Ireland. If you are an Irish (north or south) travel, beauty or baby business looking to be written about, contact me on littlemisstorrie [at] gmail [dot] com and give me details of who your company is and what you want/are offering.

If I have already written about your business, you are welcome use the following badges to tell customers that you were featured on my site. Using badges and linking back to a website who reviewed you is a great way to build positive PR and customer trust (email me for larger versions of these):

Hearing crickets? I also work with businesses to help them improve their online presence and social media strategy (I don’t run accounts for people). Prices start at £500 for an in-depth online audit and strategy consultation. Please contact me for details.

I offer guest posting and sponsored posting to reputable people with sites in good standing at my discretion. If a post is sponsored/guest, this will always be disclosed in a byline, in accordance with ASA/NUJ rules. Please contact me at littlemisstorrie [at] gmail [dot] com to discuss business opportunities with your company name, your position, the remuneration package and any deadlines, requirements etc. Without this info I won’t be able to reply.

Unfortunately, due to the volume of queries I get, I will usually only reply if your query fits with my blog. You are unlikely to get a response if you don’t tell me who you’re representing as I’ve found people who are cagey about this tend to be selling junk or want me to circumvent ASA rules.
