Move to Spain is a relatively new site, built to provide information for British residents thinking of moving to Spain. My brief for content creation for Move to Spain was to write dozens of useful articles for Spain generally and for the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca specifically.
Using my local knowledge and long-term expat status, I created articles for six main areas: Getting a Job; Starting a Business, Lifestyle; Legal; Schooling; and Property. The fundamental aim of all the content was to provide information that is both correct and useful for the new expat in Spain.
The Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol feature are two main areas within the site since they’re the most popular places for relocation in Spain. I have created content on the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca property markets, about international schools on the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca, and other key areas of interest to new expats.
I also wrote the lead-generation brochure: Moving to Spain in the Time of Brexit. Designed to offer up-to-date information on the situation for British expats in Spain in the light of Brexit.
I write regularly for the blog on the Rio Real Golf & Hotel in Marbella website. Weekly posts cover a range of topics that seek both to interest the reader and signal new, relevant content to Google. My blog post writing for Rio Real Golf includes the following:
Golfing matters – tips for play, equipment and golfing news. For example, 1o tips to play good golf and Sergio García crowns a glorious Andalucia Masters and
Rio Real golf course – information about the course and tips for playing it. News about green fee deals and promotions. For example, 6 jaw-dropping views at Rio Real
Rio Real hotel – news about the boutique hotel. For example, Why you should choose a golf course with a boutique hotel
Marbella tourist information – what to do and see in the resort. For example, 10 unusual facts about Marbella

This year I have continued with my travel guide update work.
Between March and July this year I have updated several sections of Fodor’s Spain 2015. For the print version, I updated Chapter 1: Experience Spain (general information about travelling in Spain); Chapter 10: Andalusia; Chapter 11: Costa del Sol & Costa de Almería; Travel Smart Spain. For the online version, I updated these chapters plus a short chapter on Murcia and the section dedicated to the Canary Islands (Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife).
The work involved meticulous research and attention to detail plus writing up new listings for tourist attractions, hotels and restaurants. Fodor’s Spain 2015 is published in print and online in late 2015.
