What's Cynthia Doing in November 2019?
When I was working for the big saltwater aquarium site, Reef2Reef, I was writing a lot of long, complicated articles, mostly on topics of my choice. So, I curated a short list of close personal friends and family that specifically asked to be notified of new articles that I had written.
I'm no longer working for Reef2Reef. We went our separate ways after about a year. There are no hard feelings. They did a major "upgrade" to their website recently which had the unintended effect of pretty much making my articles section unworkable.
Their website is built on a platform and has lots of plugins and layers and patches. It's not a custom website. So, to make a long story short, it just wasn't possible to continue doing what I was doing unless they spent a lot of time and money fixing my section. Easy come, easy go.
Since I stopped working for them in September, my small list of article readers has been clamoring for articles. "Where are my articles?" I hear again and again.
So, this little blog post will update everyone.
I have worked for a web design agency based in Florida for over two years. Accelerank. I recently gave them notice that I would be leaving them. The agency owner is a supreme gentleman, and I have no complaints.
But recently I've been doing more work for someone local to me, and I like working for someone local. So, that's what I'm concentrating on now. I'm now the Senior Content Writer for Cityline Websites. I write website copy and business blogs. Period. And I find it easier to work for just this one person. I just wanted to make my work life less complicated.
At Cityline, the boss and the two SEO (Search Engine Optimization) guys I work with are great. Really fun. And that's important to me.
I'm not going to link to all the companies I write for here right this second, but I'm now writing blogs for these businesses:
1. a clinical psychologist
2. a company that does fire safey manuals for big manufacturing companies
3. 2 companies that do building envelope restoration
4. 4 security/alarm companies
5. a wedding planner
6. a company that does concrete and masonry restoration
7. a dentist
8. 2 cleaning businesses
9. An accounting firm
10. 2 notaries
11. 2 roofing companies
12. a stucco company
13. 2 builders
14. a furniture store
15. 2 CBD extraction companies
16. a sheet metal business
And that's all I can think of off the top of my head. I'm writing about 40 blogs per month right this minute, but these are shorter articles. Some are interesting, and some less so. I mean I try to make them all engaging, but I'm not picking the topics. These are shorter articles--about 300 words--for the purposes of search engine optimization, or helping a website to rank better with Google.
I'm also writing the website copy for maybe 2 new websites per month. This keeps me pretty busy, and I have one long article per month for one company.
This is the most recent one of those: https://www.davincivirtual.com/blog/4671/tools-you-need-to-start-your-own-business
New blog articles are published typically mid-month.
So, when my next batch gets published, I'll start up my little email and send some links to my most enthusiastic readers.
One friend, Dr. Faye Briggs, I know has been waiting for a link to my article on Impressed Current Cathodic Protectioin. Sadly, the client rewrote much of that article, and I wouldn't want to show it to anyone now. Ugh. But, you know, the client is always right. I still get paid for what I write even if the client turfs it.
What many clients don't understand is that writing for SEO purposes is a finely honed skill, which they can't recreate. So, he may have liked his finished product better than mine, but his won't perform as well as mine for SEO. Nah nah nah nah nah.
If you want to be on my short list, contact me, and I'll be happy to add you.
