I do design, 3dmax and some internet horse trading + have a couple domains I work. Not too bad at social media things I guess. I'm always trying to learn new skills.

I'm a new freelancer, interested in writing articles and blog posts. I have opened up to the idea of writing professional resumes as well.

Hey all.

Currently, I'm guest blogging for an educational video platform. My contributions there are in two main areas, General Language Education and English as a Second Language Teaching.

In the past, I've done the 400-words-for-pennies-per-word type of writing, which means picking a client, using their key words and hoping they like what you produce. That was fine for getting a handle on adapting my learned writing skills to what was, back then, a new medium for me. Haven't done that kind of writing for a couple of years now, hardly pays well and there always seem to be "editors" who spend most of their time looking at comma use, despite client satisfaction. You spend more time worrying if the "editor" of the copy writing platform will ruin your status (and thus your pay!) by marking you down for a misplaced comma.

I did have a peculiar client thanks to Freelancer, an autobiography I edited in Spanish, translated to English, then condensed for web use. Also didn't pay all that well considering the time spent upon it, but didn't have anything better to do that summer, so took the job.

Though I am sure I could freelance on just about any researchable topic, I prefer language and writing topics, as even though I do have to research, I more quickly recognized valuable information and much of what I find reminds me of something I already knew.

peace,
revel.

I really like what I do. It gives me the opportunity to grow as a personality, to improve and to constantly grow up. I work with 2D and 3D animation and visualization programs. This area never goes away. You are always surrounded by interestin people and endless possibilities. These knowledges completely changed the quality of my life. But most importantly Ican travel and work anywhere I like. This is my experience.

I would say I'm marketing specialist, I specialize on creating brand identity online, including advertising, logo and visual content creation, managing social media platforms, etc. I'm happy that my field is wider and I didn't settle only, for example, in graphic design and logo creation. In this way my work is always dynamic and different.

I used to be a blogger for a company in Canada that worked remotely. I wrote about fitness, health, and healthy recipes and such. I also did have a brief job writing resumes - but unfortunately was not able to keep that due to time constraints. I'm currently looking for any and all freelance work, though, and am a quick learner so I can effectively have a great turn around time.
