Service Description

Rebecca Blanton is an award-winning writer and photojournalist. She was a speaker at TED Global 2009 in Oxford, England.

She has traveled extensively across the United States and worked for a variety of publications - both as an editor, reporter, freelancer and photographer. She currently writes for Airstream Life Magazine and Change.org. She has written for American Profile, Woman's World, Trailer Life, MotivatedOnline.com, Creative Loafing, Road King, Chattanooga Life & Leisure, Appalachian Trailway News, PI (A magazine for Private Investigators) and other publications.

She also ghostwrites for two best selling business speakers and for a best selling business and marketing author.

Her essay about fathers and forgiveness is on page 141 of Tim Russert's book - "Wisdom of Our Fathers." She's also started, run and sold her own successful newspaper. In 2002, seven months after launch, it became the first newspaper in the State of Washington to become a legal paper of record in the state in 20 years. It was the first to do so in 40 years with less than $1 million in investment. She started it with $230 raised by local citizens in a yard sale for her.

She's been a forest fire fighter, police officer and massage therapist, but continues to fall back on her first loves - writing and photography.

Skill sets: Quark, Adobe Photoshop, the standard office software, NetObjects 8, Soundslides, Audacity, PagePlus, FileMaker Pro, Pages and other Mac Applications as well as...
