    2015 marks my fourth year as a professional writer. In retrospect, I do admit I've come a long way - from a raw, eager green-horn keen on pleasing to a more laid-back writer with an unrestricted prose oozing personality. Back then I could do all manners of writings: from web content to creative writing to data entry. As the years wore on, however, I've found myself leaning more towards the blogging side of things. Not only has it made me a better writer (I love to think) but also I've come to appreciate the whole aspect of writing. I love wordplay, it's amazing what you can accomplish with it - it can earn you a jail-term even. I've blogged on multiple niches over the years including the following that immediately spring to mind: Technology Business & Finance Real Estate SEO Forex trading Bitcoin Fashion Celebrity news Movies Music - Hip Hop in particular Alternative Health I've written for clients the world over: Australia, US of A, Canada, England, Denmark, Poland, Morocco, and South Africa. I have learned a lot, true, and with each passing sunset, honed my skills as it's only with time that even the sharpest talent achieves class, and the experience that only time brings forth. Just like any professional sportsperson will admit unequivocally. What can I do you for?  less
