Ghostwriting for the month

I’ve started doing some things a little different this month as I do not have a lot of published article under my name. If an article is published I will put it up under published articles, however most of my work seems to be ghostwriting blogs.

When a customer order blog entries on a particular topic, I will write twice as many as they require. I will then let them pick which articles they want and the remainder will be put under my portfolio. This way I can show my experience in various topics without violating my ghostwriting contracts.

All of my portfolio entries are here http://killerteacup.wordpress.com/category/portfolio/

Categories for the month  of August were:

Computers

Dentistry

Wine

Hopefully this works out for me as too many people are looking for ‘proof’ and references. Unfortunately I cannot provide those

Another day, another dollar…

..well not exactly.

Just more job hunting, my customers have slowed down considerably. I have a few jobs to ghostwrite, one blog, and some video editing, but not enough to pay the bills.

The last few weeks have been spent trying to teach myself how to design a WordPress website and I am quite impressed with myself. http://dracmor.com  is the website for a Scottish clan that my husband and I run. It is primarily based at the Bristol Wisconsin rennaisance faire.

We are not a hardcore clan, we are more a large group of friends with a tying interest. We are extremely diverse in careers, age, sex and race and just like to have fun. We are also a support network that attempts to help each other when there are problems, unfortunately more and more of us are having financial difficulties. So if you ever get out to the Bristol ren faire look for those of us with the black tartan (many simply have a pin of it with a loop of pearls) and say hi or ask them to direct you to Lady Dracmor or Kattosha.

The last time I had developed this page was almost ten years ago and then I wrote it in painstaking HTML, but it was a valuable lesson. This was much easier as I used a WordPress base and I love how adaptable it is and how many addons I can find out there for it. The site is not yet complete as I have plans to add a message board, marketplace, and blog to it. Once those pages are complete I will grant limited access to my members so they can post their own photos and sales information. There will also be two subsites eventually added; one will be for Pirates and the other for Steampunk.

If you get a chance pop over to dracmor.com and give me your opinions. I would love to hear how outsiders view this and see if you have any suggestions to add to it. Unfortunately being on the inside I may be missing some key points.
