Blogs are an excellent way for someone with a hobby or interest to put their ideas out into cyberspace for others to learn and connect.

Web Page

A web presence is now essential for a business to reach out to customers. A boring web page will cause potential customers to ignore your business or not try what you are offering.

Projects by Writing Style
Authoritative

Writing with an authoritative voice sometimes sounds clipped and rather blunt. However, this tone does lend a certain amount of professionalism to a blog post or an article that a passive voice does not. Micki has written several blog posts and articles using an authoritative voice to get the message of the post or article clearly across to the reader.

Conversational

Micki believes that every writing should contain some form of a conversational tone. It is the backbone of solid writing that makes the reader feel as if they are talking to the author face to face. Dry, dull writing is not enjoyable for most people but writing that is witty and shows a bit of character draws readers in and makes the reading experience interesting. Micki has found that the right balance of informative and conversational within a written article or post gives readers the information they seek while making them want to come back and read more.

Promotional

Writing promotional pieces is not as easy as it sounds. Micki has written several promotional blog posts and articles with this concept in mind. She has learned the art of promoting ones product, person or idea without being overbearing or simply annoying. She draws from her experiences as a teacher and as a dog enthusiast to write orginal content that grabs the attention of the reader.
