Re: What's Your Favorite Topic to Write About?

Ha! Seems like we may have worked for the same person. Mine was quartz countertops, day in and day out. Very tedious, but I'm pretty good at describing bathrooms, myself.

Y'all have ALL my apologies

I'm afraid that the summer's just been so very busy - with travel, kids out of school and trying to find a work-life balance, I've neglected this forum. I popped on here to say hey, and discovered that somehow a few spammers had gotten through. I deeply apologize on behalf of the fool who inundated ...

Re: Roll Call!--Where in the World Are You?

Hello! I'm in North Carolina, been here since 1997. I remember being hesitant to move here; there's quite a stigma attached to the South. But since I've been here it's become my home. I like having the Appalachian mountains to the left of me a couple hours and the Atlantic coast to the right, also j...

Re: INTRODUCE YOURSELF

Hi, Jessica! It's so good to have you!

The Monterey Bay sounds nice - always wanted to visit that side of the country, but haven't made it past Denver so far.

What kind of writing do you do?

Re: What are you working on right now?

Oh how fun!!
I've been scrambling around pretty busy too. Currently working on a few websites for a client and have another article that was initially supposed to be for one local publication but they want to expand it to include more syndicates. Good stuff!

Re: Hacks--Work Smarter Not Harder--Share Your Tips!

I guess I'm just blessed with the power of a superhuman memory. I have two bookmarks bars. I have several sites which I'm working on with one client, and he's got his own dedicated toolbar.

Fiverr Pro

Just a FYI - Fiverr has recently introduced a "Pro" program. They sent emails to individuals, inviting them to apply to the program. And apparently, not all of these individuals were already Fiverr sellers. It would seem that the Fiverr team has been doing some active headhunting over the past few m...

Re: What Do You Struggle With?

Confidence in writing is a good one. I'm the type of person who always has a bit of doubt hanging out there, but it really didn't take me long to overcome that. All I had to do was surf the internet for a few months, and briefly examine the writing of others. I think it's fair to say that everyone w...
