I am a content writer. I started out as a cook with a business degree and a hobby of writing short fiction stories and poetry. I finally got the balls to publish a novella after beginning this wonderful site, blogit, in 2008 and writing it piece by piece on here with a captive and vocal audience.While working on the "hobbies," I worked a million hours a week in the restaurant industry and wrote many, many articles and poems about the challenges and fun times, with most of those excerpts making their way here in those early years.

With the publishing of my book, called "World's Away" (available on Amazon) under my belt, I felt a little more confident about peddling my skills a few years later (like 5) and took the offer when a friend asked me to write a content page for her boss. To my surprise, the dry and factual page needed very few edits for the lawyer website it would be published on and a new career was born. A scant few months later I was able to quit my full time job as a restaurant mananger and begin writing full time-from home for just a hair less. Even pay, if ya wanted to count gas and travel time and alla that jazz. Except at tax time.

Anyways, though I love to cook as many needlessly eloquent meals as possible in the non-rushed and nonjudgemental atmosphere of my own kitchen, I would prefer not to go back to the restaurant industry if it means I can keep not setting an alarm and still get praised on how timely and efficient I am. I like working from home, when I feel like it. It's a good fit for me.

I like to come on blogit and do a rant, a poem, and post a song that I'm loving at the time, too. Thanks for reading, thanks for responding :) I love this place.
