freelance writer with 20 years of experience working in the commercial insurance industry as an Account Manger. Early in my career, I handled smaller to mid-ranged sized accounts. As I became a more seasoned professional, I handled Fortune 100 companies.
Tiring of insurance, I was presented with an opportunity to become a requirements writer for a large research and development company. I wrote many requirements documents for the development of a blood analyzer machine.
My requirements career was a great segue to becoming a technical writer in which I wrote software manuals, documents and release notes.
Technical writing is far from exciting in my opinion. After a while of writing about the less than stimulating subject of computer software intricacies, I decided it was time for me to go out on my own and find more interesting topics. I was able to combine my many years of business experience along with my writing skills to become a freelance writer.
I began my freelance writing as a ghostwriter, writing several SEO (Search Engine Optimized) articles on the subject of insurance. I have since written articles on many different topics, both on line and in printed publications. Recently I’ve ventured into the self-publishing, ebook arena.
My first book (which is outdated, but still contains useful information), So You Want to be a Freelance Writer is free to download. The second book, NJFM’s Blogging for Beginners is
not free too. If you’re interested in becoming an online freelance writer or blogger, these books provide valuable information to help you on your journey.
