Freelance Writer, Virtual Assistant, Proofreader, Transcriber
Thank you for viewing my profile. I am a diligent, dedicated, dependable, and motivated individual seeking creative outlets in the fields of writing, proofreading, PDF conversion, data entry, transcribing and other typing. I prefer to communicate through Upwork messaging and check Upwork messages frequently during my regular business hours Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. U.S. eastern time. Due to family commitments, I am unable to work on holidays. Client satisfaction has earned me the Top Rated Upwork freelancer award. I have room to only list work I do for my three most recurring Upwork clients, but all of my clients are great to work with. A complete list of my clients and feedback ratings are visible upon signing in.
I worked as a virtual assistant for a successful pattern website from July 2007 to December 2015. My duties included email support for customers and site sellers, blog updates, and weekly newsletter updates.
I have been transcribing for a Tennessee based DVD production company on Upwork since November 2014. I use Transcriber Pro software to transcribe audio and video files. I can usually transcribe and proofread one hour of clear audio of one to three speakers in about six to ten hours. Audios with obscene language will be declined.
Many people do not realize that transcribed material of your YouTube, GodTube, PetTube and other videos are likely to improve SEO results. I would like to help you with that.
WRITING and PROOFREADING
I have been writing blog posts and web content for a Canadian multimedia marketing firm since March of 2015. I earned my Freelance Writer career diploma from Penn Foster in January 2015.
From July 2008 through December 2012, I wrote articles for an online craft magazine and proofread articles for that same magazine from July 2007 through January 2013. Other duties for the magazine included organizing advertisements, writers’ deadlines and other miscellaneous submissions, then emailing the compiled information to the layout designer. Before the newest issue was published for instant download, I was responsible for proofreading the final draft.
I understand how to use track changes and comments in MS Word, and I also know how to use the editing and comments features in Google Docs.
Studying the different proofreading styles has honed my skills as a proofreader and as a writer. Research further strengthens my writing abilities. My writing interests include, but are not limited to, the following: how-to articles, women’s interests, crafts, current events, children, housekeeping, aging, organization, charities, and Christian themed articles. I also write books for Kindle publication.
I am most interested in making your website content, blog posts, newsletters, emails, and magazine publications look professional before the rest of the world views them. Upwork freelancers, I can proofread, edit and/or polish your profile as well.
PDF CONVERSION, DATA ENTRY and TYPING
With basic knowledge of Adobe Acrobat XI Pro and Microsoft Word 2010, I am able to convert PDF to Word and Word to PDF. Ask me about PDF editing as well. If you need a typist for data entry projects, I can accurately type an average of fifty-four words a minute. I will also re-type scanned documents but prefer to type no more than ten pages a day.
I am skilled at listing on Ebay and Etsy. I am very happy to learn how to list on other selling platforms as well.
I firmly believe that personal life can speak volumes as far as an individual’s dedication and hope you do not mind my elaborating on the important aspects of my personal life that I have been successful at. I have been married to my husband since 1989. I assisted our younger son through his home-based education from Kindergarten through twelfth grade. We have lived in the same house since 1995 which provides a stable environment allowing me to conduct smooth day-to-day operations. With that being said, short term obligations are treated with the same degree of importance and respect as long term obligations.
