I'd like to create a series of blog posts a non-technical reader will enjoy. I need my work edited, and at the same time would like feedback on what part of my original writing worked, and which didn't.

Job description:
I plan to produce 2-4 blog posts a month. These will be fiction, and the first one is here: (  [obscured]  /2013/01/saas-recruiter-does-not-think-youre-hot.html)

I'd like to work with an editor to re-write each of these posts be excellent, exciting writing, something that is gripping for a non-technical reader.

I expect the editor to be able to
1) Provide a version of the piece that is better
2) Answer my questions on why it is better, and help me look at alternatives.

Depending on the value the editor can provide, I'm willing to be a premium price.
Total word count:
400

Type of review:
Proofreading (a simple grammar and punctuation review), Editing (deep line editing for syntax), Subject Verb Agreement, Voice or Tone, All of the Above
