"There are no boring stories, only boring reporters.''
I heard that a lot during my years as a newspaper reporter.
Turns out, that is true.
How are your stories and blog posts doing? Are you happy with them after you hit publish? Do you need a little more confidence? Focus? Technical help?
If you need, or want help, with storytelling, content, focus and editing yourself, let's talk.
When I am not blogging or mailing Spanish t-shirts, I work as a publicist and copy writer, and lately -- much to my newly found joy -- as the Contributions Editor for Tiki Tiki Blog
, I have been helping writers tighten and focus online posts, turning me into a writing coach and copy editor.
Here is what we can do:
You send me six posts you have written -- three you love most, three you think could use some help. I edit them for style, grammar and voice and make note of the good things you do, and the things you consistently do that could be improved.
It is an exercise I went through as a young reporter. It strengthened my work by highlighting my personal writing strengths and weaknesses so I could check myself before I hit the "send'' button.
In addition, we can discuss:
- search engine optimization (SEO)
- niche blogging
- blogging platforms such as Wordpress and Blogger
- corporate sponsorships
- social media
