Welcome! My name is Sonia and I’m so grateful you’re here!
Hi there, I’m Sonia – creator and editor of Brewing Writer.
I am a reader, content writer and COFFEE LOVER! ☺️☕️
I hope to share with you everything book related – book reviews, book recommendation lists and life-changing quotes to keep in mind.
I promise I won’t take much of your time! Please keep reading to know WHY I started this blog. 🙂
I knew early on when I was 16 (2013), that I loved reading and writing and like most people, who love to read and write – I wanted to become a writer.
I was one of the top ten young journalists in my home country’s local young adult issue in 2013 and 2014.
However, I proceeded to do my degree in Economics and minored in Psychology because they were subjects I were interested in.
I never really wanted to proceed in those fields career wise but I studied it anyway.
I never thought I could become a writer.. until I started freelance writing and my life completely took a turn.
The Big Leap
As the world went into lockdown in 2020, I graduated and was unemployed for many months.
So what did I do with all my free time?
- Read A Lot Of Books
- Started A Bookstagram To Book Review
- Started Freelance Writing & Social Media Managing
- Upskilled myself on SEO and Digital Marketing
With this I realised, may it be book reviews or a skill in demand – it is important to share the knowledge we know with others.
I know how difficult it was to transform my freelance writing side hustle to become a full-time writer and SEO strategist for Lazada Group, an international e-commerce company.
And that is why I started this blog – Brewing Writer
A safe space to learn more about everything bookish, writing and digital marketing.
Currently, I am a full-time book blogger and freelance writer.
I get to read books whenever I like, write about them and sustain a living from it.
I hope to bring you:
- Thoughtfully written book reviews.
- Freelance writing tips
- Bookstagram & Book Blogging tips
- Other fun related book content!
