I was 8 months pregnant when my then-husband and I separated.
I had no job, no spouse, and no home on the horizon.
I also had a journalism degree, some solid blogging chops, and a steady supply of fierce determination.
What was a wanna-be stay-at-home mom to do?
Answer: Freelance Writing
Fact: I was correcting the grammar of adults around me by the age of 5.
I’ll never live that down.
Though I’ve improved in the social skills arena, some things never change. I still know how to work with words, and I still want to help others with theirs.
With a bachelor’s degree in journalism from one of the top j-schools in the country (go Heels!) and a blogging resume dating back to 2001 (holla to my LiveJournal), I’ve seen it all… and done most of it.
Now I help businesses and entrepreneurs with writing.
Blogs. E-books. Websites. Even Amazon book descriptions (because nothing gives you cred like “Bestselling Author”).
Good copy has always been important, but now it’s more important than ever. Well-done company blogs generate more leads, a better ROI, and greater credibility.
But producing the kind of content that people want to read isn’t so simple. Anyone can write a blog post, but not everyone can deliver great content that gets results. Doing that requires a style that only seasoned writers have.
Authoritative and relatable. Valuable and engaging.
That’s what your writing needs to be. You need to convey authority without setting yourself up on a mountaintop. Nobody wants to be lectured, after all. Offer value. Be engaging. Equip your audience with the knowledge they need and then point them to a specific action.
Anything less, and you’ll get crickets. And with customers moving in droves toward online research over human interaction, crickets will spell trouble.
I don’t dish out trouble… just results.
As a freelance writer and editor, I do good work, on time, error-free.
Entrepreneurs and small businesses have been hiring me since 2010 to improve their websites, manage and contribute to their blogs, and strengthen their Internet marketing copy. I’ve even been a ghost-writer for some names you might recognize.
Now growing writers come to me to learn how to start their own writing careers, improve their craft, and stay true to their highest calling: taking care of their families.
I couldn’t love my work more than I already do.
