Resume

Since I work primarily as a ghostblogger and an editor, I'm not at liberty to share much of my actual work, only where I've worked. There are links to my bylined work below, when available, that can be used as writing samples. And, of course, you can get a feel for my writing style from the articles I've written on the LittleZotz Writing blog.

Be a Freelance Blogger - Managing Editor

I was in charge of submission management (potential guest posters sent their article ideas/pitches to me for approval -- and I made sure that their final drafts looked fabulous once they were published!). I also answered reader questions and comments, and frequently contributed articles of my own to the BAFB blog.

The Fashion Circle was an online magazine that featured fashion, beauty, and lifestyle articles. I signed on to help them out for 30 days..

133T - Head Editor & Head Writer

In addition to writing my own articles for the 133T blog, I also kept track of pitches and drafts from guest writers. Once a guest writer's article was accepted, I'd edit it into perfection, format it, add a photo, and make it look fabulous before uploading it to the 133T blog.

Jefferson Media Group - Senior Editor

I was the Senior Editor for a political news site run by Jefferson Media Group. I edited news stories, all day every day. I assigned stories to writers, and kept the writers on task. I also did social media work as necessary. I was let go after the publication decided to go in a new direction and they no longer needed me; but, for those four months, I kept the publication in tip-top shape and helped publish the very BEST material possible on their site, keeping both the readers and the higher-ups happy and coming back for more.
