Summary of Experience
Deborah specializes in writing product and website reviews. She started writing these in 1998 and has since broadened her platform to include blogs and websites. Her favorite topics are books and software, but she will write a review on anything that interests her.

Deborah's goal is to help readers make educated choices when trying to decide on what product or service they would like to buy. Because of this, she has developed a strong proficiency in research skills and a good proficiency in SEO.

Another writing specialty she has is writing how-to guides. While working at an off-site job in 2002, she wrote a training guide for a state-mandated test that helped her team pass their tests so that they could continue their employment at this agency. She has since written step-by-step instructions on how to perform office procedures and how to use database software.

When she started blogging in 2004, she had very little knowledge about how to use WordPress. After some trial and error, she began to learn how to do various things, such as how to insert headers and how to upgrade the platform without breaking her blog. Once she learned how to use WordPress, she began posting step-by-step directions so that her readers could learn how to do the same things that she was doing.

Her blogging experience landed her a blogging gig in 2006. She wrote for two blogs in her client's network, a cooking blog and a paranormal blog. The cooking blog gave her the opportunity to write reviews on kitchen gadgets and post kitchen tips. With the paranormal blog, she wrote a variety of articles, reviews, and entertainment announcements.

Today, she writes articles and reviews for a variety of sites, as well as her personal blog. In her spare time, she work on her novels.
