Start Here

hey there!

I’m Michelle—but my friends call me Shelly.

I’m a 20-something freelance copyeditor, ghostwriter, and PR specialist who’s been blogging here since 2016 about everything from how to ace your college English class to how to be productive while working from home—and all about my life in small town USA. Thanks for stopping by!

Originally known as Michelle Adams Blog, ShellyRawlings.com began as a pet project while I was an undergraduate student at Shenandoah University, where I majored in English and minored in mass communications before graduating summa cum laude in 2017. Many found my blog in the early days thanks to my popular Due Date Spreadsheet, a (free!) organizational tool that I actually used to stay organized in college.

Nowadays, I use this site to share blogging and writing tips, muse about the state of the media industry, talk about what I’m reading, and share updates on my life. I’d love to have you along for the ride!
