Whim Online Magazine Editor Portrait Cropped

Hey there! I’m Melanie, a freelance writer and lover of all things creative. I’m also the Founder and Editor of Whim Online Magazine, having begun this little space of the web in late February of 2013. Literally created ‘on a whim’, I started the site as a platform to write about the topics I’m most passionate about – whimsical and dreamy photography, art, fashion, and craft content.

Since beginning Whim, I have also become an established Freelance Writer for multiple other platforms including Cool Crafts, BeFunky, Photo Contest Insider, Wink Book Reviews,  ROCCAPINA, and Arts Melange (just to name a few!).

Writing has been my passion since I was a little girl and I could often be found creating ‘books’ filled with scribbled (and quite unreadable!) stories before I had even started school. This passion led me to study writing at Uni, obtaining a Bachelor of Creative Writing in late 2011 and a Diploma of Journalism in mid-2014.

Some years ago, I also made the conscious decision to inject my daily life with as much creativity as possible, just as I had once done as a child. To be honest, if I’m not crafting, taking photos, writing, arranging spaces, reading, or brainstorming dreamy ideas, then I feel a little empty!

Whim not only allows me to embrace my love of writing and creativity, but it now also allows me to inspire and motivate others to live the creative and beautiful life of their dreams.

  1. Do you sell the images that you accept for your magazine as stock photography or are those from photographers that gave you permission to do so? Please let me know as I am interested in submitting to your beautiful magazine.
    Thank you!

    • Hi Pamela, thanks for your inquiry!

      We definitely don’t (and never will) sell images submitted to us as stock photography :) The images featured on this page (or used in products such as our eBooks) have either been purchased from stock photography websites (we used to use Dollar Photo Club before it sold to Adobe Stock) or have been obtained through our favorite free stock photo websites where photographers upload their images and give people permission to use them – such as Pexels and Stock Snap.

      The photo shoots featured on our website have been submitted for showcase by their photographers, who we then write an article about, we might interview them, include their portfolio links etc.

      I hope that helps!

      Best wishes,
      Melanie
