Overview

I have a very distinct vision of what I want to be as a writer. My vision of what I don't want to be as a writer is just as clear. For that reason I'm selective of the jobs for which I will submit a proposal.

I don't want to churn out a dozen void-of-life, click-magnet articles every day. I want my work to have voice, meaning and a point. I believe it is my job to reach the audience or bring in traffic through lively writing that is natural, efficient, SEO-friendly, and interesting.

Before I begin, I try to understand your goals and then...

Service Description

I have a love of language and a strong understanding of the importance of word selection, tone, and flow of a written piece. I'm not one of those writers who will sit down at the keyboard and hammer out ten stories that don't exhibit style and an easy-to-read flow. I'm creative, quick-to-understand complicated subjects, and I also understand my work is not only a reflection of me, but a reflection of you as well.

What I do:

- News Article/Press Release Writing: I worked for a decade as a journalist and I've also written sales material for the likes of IT Companies, car dealerships, web-development companies, and more. I know how to promote a product through the use of news-worthy hooks to grab as much publicity as possible.

- SEO Web Content: So long as your idea of SEO isn't using two keywords to achieve 30% keyword density, I'm the SEO writer for you. With SEO content, I strive to produce pieces that flow naturally from one potentially searched phrase on the topic to the next potentially searched phrase on the topic. The goal is to achieve this while still providing valuable information to readers. There is nothing worse than searching for information online, only to find a half-dozen search results that are nothing more than SEO gimmicks that deliver nothing. The fattest spiders are the ones who weave the most creative webs. I want to help you weave a web that can't miss every fly in the online community.

- Editing: I served for three years as the Regional Editor...
