Meet Brittany Williams of WritefullySoBrittany in Virginia

Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittany Williams.

Brittany, before we jump into specific questions about your work, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started blogging because writing has always been a passion of mine. I wrote poetry all the time when I was younger. As I got older, I started writing about more complex topics and things I was experiencing in detail. I started blogging to take the stigma off of mental health, infertility, and life challenges in general.

So many people are ashamed to talk about how hard things can be or refuse to, I wanted my blog to change people’s perspectives on that. My intention was always to create a safe place and to let people know that we’re all struggling or have experienced hardships and that’s okay. It doesn’t make you weak. I noticed that through my transparency, I was beginning to reach people.

Some were people I knew, some I didn’t, but I would receive messages or comments on my posts from people with similar experiences. Once I saw that my transparency was helping others to share what they had been through, I knew I had to keep writing. In addition to blogging, I also freelance write and cover/review events.

Has it been a smooth road?
Blogging has not been a smooth road at all. I had no clue what I was doing when I first started, I just wanted to write. Some struggles I experienced was knowing how to market myself, learning my target audience, learning SEO to help gain traffic, and literally anything having to do with building a website.

Another struggle was branding. I wanted to write so at first, I didn’t understand the importance of branding myself and letting people into my world outside of what I shared on my blog. But I quickly learned that was another way to bring in readers, followers, and collaboration and event opportunities.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
WritefullySoBrittany is a blog that focuses on mental health, infertility, and anything related to life’s challenges and how to get through them. I have a Masters in Social Work and a Bachelor’s in Psychology and Mass Comm/Journalism. Anything that I write/interviews on, I have experienced professionally, personally, or know that there’s a need for information on it.

What sets me apart is my honest, blunt delivery. Sugarcoating is not my strong suit lol. I tackle the topics no one wants to talk about either. I’m most proud of the fact that WritefullySoBrittany has readers in 46 countries outside of the US. I never imagined that my blog would reach people around the world.
