    United Kingdom - Tests: 2

    I have built my own wordpress sites and have been using the internet to market products for more than 10 years - I am excellent at proof reading, and can use HTML in my wordpress sites to enhance the way it looks. I learnt to program in BASIC at school - and have used computers ever since. I did a college course in Excel to also enhance my skills. I believe Kindle will be a major player in the future of e-books and I am willing to proof read any book before converting to Kindle. I also have used powerpoint to make slideshows, and also used camtasia studio to convert into a video and upload to youtube.com
