Summary of Experience
Linda has been writing since 1990. She has authored short stories, research papers, narratives, business communications and website content.

From 2005 through 2015, she managed the office of a busy roofing contractor. While there, Linda developed the websites four times as the hosting providers changed and a mobile-friendly site added. Also, she composed or edited the marketing materials and nearly all business communications with customers, partner businesses, the BBB, review sites and government agencies.

For several years in the early 1990s, Linda had the pleasure of reviewing hundreds of manuscripts for a Denver literary agency and proving detailed critiques for the agents and the authors.

At about the same time as she read and reviewed for the literary agency, Linda also wrote and produced the newsletter for a political organization. This work involved not only researching and writing the articles, but also the layout and design of the publication.

From 1995 through 1998, Linda operated a typing and design service where she created professional resumes, designed and ghost-wrote a gardening newsletter and ghost-wrote research papers for non-English speaking university students.

Currently, Linda writes and publishes a blog on small business reputation management and freelances with content and ghost-writing companies while also crafting a novel, short stories and narrative articles.

Projects by Industry
Construction

Linda managed the office for a roofing contractor for 10 years. She was deeply involved in all of the roofing contracts, both commercial and residential. The company completed approximately 300 contracts per year. As the primary administrator and, briefly General Manager, Linda was able to learn about the entire roofing process as well as types of materials used, innovations in industrial standards, the major codes for the region along with all of the general administration of work flow, sub-contractors and company policies. She also designed and re-designed the company website, writing and editing the content, responding to customer inquiries and keeping content as fresh as possible considering the website did not have a blog. She also designed, co-wrote and edited marketing materials.

Publishing

Linda worked for a time with a literary agency in Denver, Colorado, in the early 90s. Her job was to read the new manuscript submissions and provide detailed reviews and opinions on the suitability of any given text. These reviews were included in the agent's responses to the authors.

Linda was assigned the duty of composing business communications with customers, business associates and government agencies as needed. She also edited the few communications the company owner preferred to compose himself.

Projects by SEO Skill
SEO Keyword Requirements

As of January, 2016, Linda has written for many freelance blog post clients and one freelance website design with keyword requirements, although she has created several websites with keywords in a salaried position with a roofing contractor. The freelance website was for a professional parliamentarian team.

Web Page

Linda created the website for a roofing company in Colorado Springs 4 times as host providers changed and a mobile host added. She also created the website for a business development company and for a professional parliamentarian company. She also created her own site, The Letterista (theletterista.com), which offers guidance and advice on reputation management for small businesses.

Blog Post

While managing the office for a roofing contractor, Linda discovered a knack for writing the letters and responses for BBB complaints and bad reviews. Fortunately, the need for this kind of writing was infrequent, never the less, over the course of ten years, Linda was able to hone the skill. Now she writes The Letterista blog to help other businesses deal with similar situations.

Other

Linda won the 1992 short story contest by the National Writers Club, Denver Metro Chapter with her short story "Of Hobos and Rainbows." It was published in an anthology of the same title with the other winners.

Projects By Expertise
Research Writer

Linda is a versatile writer, capable of research and composition according to a client's needs. Her interests are broad, including, but by no means limited to business, blogging, politics, science, alternative health, religion, pets, cooking, scooters (motorized bike-types), product descriptions and reviews, reputation management, creative writing, poker, literature, computers and much more.

Projects by Writing Style
Conversational

Linda is capable of writing in a conversational style as the article in question requires since most commercial blog posts favor that style. Linda's first paid blog post about taking a business from flagging to bragging was in the looser, more easy-going style of speaking with the audience, not at it.

Projects by Company Size
Small Business

Linda has, so far, sold a multitude of blog posts through content marketing firms. While the successfully completed projects touch on a variety of topics, from home maintenance to an in-depth bio for a client's investor package, the example post excerpt below was for a business coaching firm and listed ways to make an existing business more profitable.
