Limestone Living is about showcasing one of South Australia’s most amazing regions. It’s about helping to put the Limestone Coast on the map and highlighting what makes this region (arguably) one of the most exciting in Australia. My vision for Limestone Living is to create an online magazine of feature articles based on the creative, the inventive, the innovative, the historical, the delicious and well, the down-right incredible. Limestone Living is about bringing new and old stories to life, helping those already living in this wonderful region to feel even more inspired and motivated and giving those outside the borders yet another excuse to visit. Fast becoming a popular destination for international, interstate and local visitors, the Limestone Coast has it all! As the previous journalist for the local Robe/Kingston newspaper, I have had the pleasure of meeting a lot of interesting and talented people on the coast. However, Limestone Living is about the whole region, from Naracoorte to Beachport, Millicent to Port MacDonnell and everywhere in between. I’m hoping to build a following, make contacts and bring you interesting stories. After deciding to pursue my freelance writing dreams, I realised it’s hard in the country to find already established jobs in fields such as journalism. Actually, journalism in general, is a hard industry; jobs are few and far between, and in the country it is even harder to find positions. In the country women, more so than in the city, have to create jobs for themselves and that is why you will find so many female business owners, leaders in their field in rural and regional settings. They’ve had the motivation, drive and determination to get the job done! I knew that by leaving the security of a full-time journalism position, one which taught me so much, it would take some time to build up my own writing business. It is steadily growing and so are my ideas and dreams for Limestone Living. So I hope my motivation and drive will put me in the mix with the other fearless females on the Limestone Coast. It is about taking one step at a time; it is slow, but it is… me. I am able to write about the things I love to read about and if I can make it into a career, then that’s even more amazing.
