Web Design & Writing

Web design and writing seem to go hand in hand, don’t they? This year since I’m stepping back into the freelance world, I have decided after careful consideration to add my web design services to my writing services. I’ll be updating my website later in the week (more like this coming Saturday or Sunday), to show some of my web design gigs I’ve completed for clients in the past.

I enjoy creating informational websites for new and rising businesses. With this enjoyment comes frustration sometimes so you can probably see why I was hesitant to combine both of my services. The reason for the frustration is the client doesn’t always give me enough information about their business, service, or product to accurately write up a page for them. Google it, they say, (more…)

Back in the Saddle

I feel as if I’ve written this post before and maybe I have, but either way, here it is again. Today is two days before 2017 begins, well maybe more like a day and a half, but I am starting up my freelance writing biz again. As you know if you read the “about me” section, I worked as a freelance writer from 2001 to 2011. I only quit because trying to balance a college workload and a full-time freelancing career was a bit much. I have to sleep at some point. (more…)

Brainstorming Day

Well, it’s the end of the week and year for that matter and I’ve been slacking on my brainstorming sessions. With a full-time job Monday – Friday and extra activities after work, this week has been a bit chaotic. Being the end of the year and holiday time makes it rough too. So today since I have a bit of downtime here at work I’m going to brainstorm some new blog ideas, article ideas, and expand on my e-book a bit. There is so much I want to get finished before December 31st (tomorrow), but it’s almost like every obstacle that can get in my way does. Don’t you just hate that? (more…)

It’s Good to be Back!

Hello! Long time no writing it would seem. It’s good to be back. As some of you know I took a long break back in 2011 to go back to college and take on a part-time job working in a Pipe Organ Shop. Yes, I said pipe organ shop. No, I don’t build them, but the rest of the crew does. I work as the office manager and push papers, answer phones, and take care of my assistant manager ChowXur (photo coming soon).

Question for all Mothers, Fathers, Nannies Out There!

I’m currently working on an article about “timeout for kids”. In the beginning I’m trying to compare the newer generations (timeout) to the older generations (mine with spanking). How much better are the two? Which one works better in order to make children behave.

For the last seven days I’ve been taking care of my niece. She’s three and is an out of control child (at least with her mother). I’ve placed her in timeout a few times and it worked like a charm. She sat there for 3 minutes (as many minutes as her age – learned that from Jo on Super Nanny).
