Writer, blogger, problem solver.
I'm a lean, mean, writing machine. I've been writing on the internet since 2007 (and if you count teenage Livejournal posts, since at least 2004) and officially blogging since 2008. I've been a freelance writer since 2012, after interning at several large and small publications. Writing is the most important part of my life. It's also the most important part of any business.
I'm also someone who believes in solving problems in the absolute easiest way possible. I'm amazing at developing strategies and researching methods to improve blog posts, email marketing campaigns, Twitter profiles, Facebook posts, and everything else the Internet throws at us. I like finding solutions to problems that have been bugging other people for ages--and if my solution doesn't work, I keep trying.
Here's what I can offer you:
- Great writing. I even have a degree in Creative Writing! You could say I'm pretty accomplished. I was accepted to the National Undergraduate Literary Conference in 2010 for Creative Nonfiction and in 2011 for Poetry. I edited and wrote for the College of Idaho's literary magazine Naked Street and was a hilarious/annoying fashion writer for the Coyote. I also interned with CollegeFashon.net, CollegeCandy.com, and Lovelyish at Xanga.com. I currently work in content marketing and writing, assisting mainly in email marketing campaigns and social media.
- Experience in the following areas: blogs; email marketing strategy, writing, and implementation; social media strategy, writing, and implementation; various email marketing platforms; and research and development of blogs, social media, and email marketing. I'm also experienced in basic graphic design (nothing fancy), HTML, and other elements of design.
- Excellent attention to detail. One time, I won a contest for finding the most errors in a piece of writing. If I make a mistake, trust me, I'll find it--and I'll fix it, free of charge.
- Fast turnaround. I don't let emails languish in my inbox and I don't procrastinate when it comes to Getting Things Done.
- Relaxed personality. While I might panic about a deadline, I'll never send you 20 crazed emails about it. (I'll send them to my friends instead.)
- A great sense of humor. It's great to work with people who don't take things too seriously... but also take their work very seriously. In between serious problem solving and writing, I might share my vast collection of animal gifs with you (if that's cool).
