This is a site about writing. Some do it for a hobby, others try to make money doing it. Not everyone knows the basics.
Even more don't know how to make it readable and interesting.
I hope to accomplish all these things. I am a retired journalist, working at a weekly newspaper in a small town for 17
years, earning 10 state and 3 national awards during that time. I also spent 6 years in the marketing department of a nursing
home corporation which owned 48 facilities in 5 states.
As for personal information, I do NOT have a college degree. But on-the-job experience is sometimes worth at least as
much and THAT I have in spades! A weekly newspaper is a great learning ground, especially if you work for someone who has
been a senior staff member of a major newspaper chain, as I was.
