I am a Freelance Writer and these are the services that I am offering:
Do you have an article that you need written for your website or blog? Do you need a Facebook post that advertises a sale you are having? Or are you just looking for someone to straighten out that jumbled mess of ideas you wrote on a piece of scrap paper? Well, I’m here to offer you my services. I’m also pretty darn good at writing step-by-step instructions for general office procedures or straightforward computer software.
Editing and Proofreading
Are you looking for someone to proofread an article you have written? Look no further! I can help you. I have spent many years writing creatively for myself as a hobby, but don’t let that mislead you. As I reread my stories, I find myself constantly checking both grammar and spelling, not because my writing is horrible, but because editing my own words is difficult. They are my own words and I am blind to them as a mother is blind to the imperfections of her child. However, I do find them and I am quick to correct my mistakes.
As I read other people’s writings, I understand that often the author is blind to their own work as they write passionately so I do not judge their mistakes as others do. Readers are so quick to judge the author as less than worthy because of a typographical, spelling, or grammatical error, leading them to oppose to the viewpoint of the author. They look for reasons to scoff at what has been written. They forget that we are human and humans make many mistakes.
In an attempt to keep myself well-rounded, I have decided to add Web Design to my list of offered services. This seems to go hand-in-hand with writing as many websites need informative text as well as pretty pictures with cool transitions. I’ve also found that I enjoy working with HTML5 and CSS3 to create web pages that are more than just black letters on an otherwise white page.
Other Considerations About My Work
I may be just starting out in this business, but I am willing to learn. Whether it be how many bones are in a human foot or how to format a webpage to show off your latest cake recipe, I soak up knowledge like the proverbial sponge. I take pride in being thorough, but if I am missing something, please let me know. Constructive criticism is appreciated.
As I begin this endeavor, please bear with me as I will not be able to accept large projects, though long term work will be considered.
Do you have a specific deadline? Please let me know so that we can avoid any confusion or hard feelings. I want you to be happy with the work that I do. I would feel horrible if I let you down. If for some reason I can not meet your deadline, I would rather let you know sooner rather than later.
Some of My Work
As well as the various posts I have written on this blog, here is a list of projects I am especially proud of:
