I have always loved nature and wildlife and I particularly enjoy having the opportunity to encourage others to get outside, take a closer look at the wonders around them and then learn how to Take Care of Their Share of the planet.

My motto: "I don't just hug trees. I fondle flowers, caress critters and play in the dirt!"

Syndicated Green Content

If you need "green", eco-friendly, human interest or gardening content for your website, I can provide articles or blog posts for a very affordable cost.

Social Media

Where is the first place that you look when you want to learn something new or locate a good reliable business? For most people, the answer is "the internet". If you have a business or a message to share, you need to have an internet presence. Whether you need a fully functioning website, a blog or a Facebook presence, I can help you with your social media needs. And I can provide these services for much less than you can get them elsewhere.

Costs and Services

I write for many reasons: to inspire, to encourage, to enlighten, to influence and to earn income. The amount that I charge for my services often depends on how well an assignment will allow me to achieve a combination of those things.

Although I have the experience and skills to cover almost any topic, I prefer to accept assignments that will allow me to make a positive difference in the world.


Prior to dedicating my time to freelance writing and photography, my work background included ten years working at a public library, which provided me invaluable research skills; and ten+ years in the computer support department of a large local electronics firm, which helped improve both my people and problem solving skills.

I have also attended the Master Gardener training and I am a trained National Wildlife Federation Habitat Steward.

Please contact me to discuss how I can help your publication or organization in promoting the appreciation of nature. For your immediate needs, I have photographs and articles on many topics. Or I will be happy to create something for your specific needs.

I look forward to hearing from you! Betsy S. Franz.
