I have a degree in Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Journalism. I was an award winning columnist for my university paper, and wrote articles for the school's magazine as well. I am creative and love to express that. I have been writing online for the past five years specializing in areas such as crafts, entertainment, beauty and fashion, home decor, DIY, kids' activities and parties, holiday ideas, electronics, jewelry, clothing, and literature. I am also trained in copywriting, opinion articles and public relations writing. I'm a grammar and spelling lover and adore editing as well as writing and have taken copyediting classes. I have a sharp sense of humor, flawless spelling and grammar skills and I tend to work very hard but very fast. I'm experienced with social networking, HTML, Microsoft Word, SEO writing and blogging. I love coming up with ideas and being creative so my articles aren't run of the mill. I'm friendly, social and great with customers and clients as well. I was named one of Yahoo's Top Writers of 2012, and stay busy with projects ranging from social media, product descriptions, blogs, and Buying Guides to page reviews and ratings, article writing, and editing. I love the written word, especially when it's spelled properly! I'm prompt, trustworthy, and strive for excellence every day, and I enjoy becoming a better writer with each project I work on.
