Thisgirldoes was born out of a love for blogging, events, a job change and a copious amount of red bull. Who am I? My name is Mairi Beaver and I have worked in the advertising and PR industry for over twelve years for some bloody fantastic clients. In my tiny bit of spare time, I decided to start a blog called aguide2.me and became and Edinburgh blogger! It was basically me blethering about dating, adventures, events and general nonsense. The blog ran for three years but came to an end when I began to tire of simply being on dating profiles for blog-fodder.
What I did discover in the meantime was that I absolutely adore the geekier side of creating content. I managed to teach myself the basics of SEO, got a new job in marketing and have now ventured back into the world of blogging for reasons other than trying to get a laugh. Hiya thisgirldoes !
During the day, I am lucky enough to work for Empteezy and over the years I have also been incredibly lucky to work with some of the biggest and best company names in the UK and internationally. These include STV, the Scottish Government, VisitScotland, DeAgostini, Albert Bartlett, Freixenet, the Royal Highland Show and more.
Personally, I love musical theatre, my boyfriend, my dogs, events and my lovely little house. Living in Edinburgh and being an Edinburgh blogger is a blessing; hosting the world’s biggest arts festival and the fantastic night life are just two things amongst thousands.
Beyond that, Edinburgh is full of talented bloggers and the community is fantastic to be a part of. There is always room for a unique slant or viewpoint on events, restaurants and the goings on of not only our city, but Scotland as a whole. Thisgirldoes is incredibly lucky to have access to some of the best news and events in the country which hopefully you will enjoy hearing about.
I am always looking for great content, so please do get in touch. I am blessed to have relationships with some fantastic clients and bloggers in and around Scotland and delight in sharing content. If you have an event you want to promote, or a topic you simply want covering drop us a line.
Give me a bell why don’t you?
