    Article/Content Writer

    Philippines - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 4

    Article/Content Writing Hello, I have not included my full resume as it really has no relevance whatsoever to what I am looking for now which is article/content writing. Should you so wish I would be happy to submit to you a full resume. Basic background. Born in England and immigrated to South Africa with my parents. Studied at the University of Cape Town in South Africa qualifying with an MBChB but never practiced. I have always been in business on my own so am therefore a highly motivated, disciplined and a self starter type of person. Moved from South Africa to Mozambique Africa where I ran my own businesses for 25 years. Due to health reasons left Mozambique for the Philippines and have been here for the last 5 years. I have now fully recovered from my health problems. The only company that I have written for, for payment and was paid was The company in India that submitted the work to unfortunately had to hand back their contract due to having numerous problems with IT staff. You may contact Sankar one of the owners of the Indian company for a reference Some of the articles I wrote for them were: The Short Red Prom Dress 4,148 words How to Improve Body Posture 2,293 words Body Shapes 4,743 words How to Groom your schnauzer They then broke down these articles into 4 and 5 Blogs. Should you require these articles for your perusal I will be more than happy to send them to you. Ebook for Amazon Kindle. I wrote an eBook jointly with Sara Pritchard but we have since decided to go our separate ways however we do share the profits from the sale of our book. I have written another 2 eBooks and will sometime soon be publishing them on Amazon Kindle. This URL will show you that the book is actually on Amazon. If you would like a template of the book for your perusal I will be happy to send it to you. Hub Pages. Over the years I have written on various Blog sites but am including rather than all just Hub Pages as their standards are extremely high and strict so in my opinion they are a good reference. I have just started rewriting all my Blogs on Hub Pages and am very pleased to say that 4 of my rewrites that I have submitted so far have now become featured articles. Once I have rewritten all to the featured level I will continue writing new blogs for them. The Featured Blog’s are SEO I am very rusty at SEO but if you require it maybe you have basic pointers for me or I can take a short refresher course. I am good at researching and can write short articles when required. I am not sure of exactly how your company operates or what you require. I am happy to write on any subject. I am capable of writing in English, English and American English. I would prefer to be paid per article as against per hour. Until as such time as I have proven myself I would be prepared to accept a lower payment per article. I hope to be writing articles soon for your company. Regards Diana Harvey

    Kaitlin Cranor

    Writer and Editor

    United States - Tests: 5

    I started writing early on, long before I learned the subtle art of joining lines on paper to create words, stories, and new worlds. I quickly fell in love with spelling, grammar, and punctuation, and writing has remained my passion, more often my obsession, that haunts and enthralls me to this very day. I received my BA in English for Creative Writing at the University of Colorado at Denver, as well as serving briefly on the student-run newspaper, the UCD Advocate, as a copyeditor and staff writer. My strengths lie in editing and proofreading, as well as article and content writing. Decent writing is the vital and delicate thread that holds stories together. More than that, good writing will keep a reader interested, while bad and even mediocre writing is a death sentence, especially in a society riddled with short attention spans and easy access to greener pastures. I do not accept anything less than good, quality, feel-it-in-your-gut-that-those-are-the-perfect-words writing, in regard to my own writing, or otherwise.
