Yes, It's True, I'm a Freelance Writer

I am, among many other things, a freelance writer. This can be a confusing subject for those who have absolutely no clue what that might mean. Basically, people pay me to write articles, web site descriptions, press releases, marketing pieces and just about anything else they have available.

In the last month or so I've written over 100 pieces on everything from software development to descriptions of dog breeds to the importance of social media marketing to how to hire a contractor. It's amazingly diverse, and thus, perfect for me. I love the opportunity to write about so many different subjects in so many different ways. It keeps me from being overtaken by my ever present nemesis - boredom.

Now the down side to being a freelance writer is that a lot of the time I'm ghost writing. That means that even though I'm writing the article, someone else is getting the byline. It's slightly disappointing, but then I get paid and it's fine again.

So, that's what I've been doing lately. And that was today's blog post.

Agile Software Development as a matter of fact. ;) Ghost written, of course.
