Hey Y'all.

I'm slowly putting myself back together to head back in to the working world. Part of that has included updating my website with writing samples. Yay.

Website is still very much under construction and I'm always open to feedback (and suggestions of things to write!) so, if you are in need of a little something to read I'd really appreciate the input.

Thank you!

If it is to be a professional page used by professionals looking at your work get rid of the Boy band Connoisseur at the top of the page, unless that is your topic area.

It might just be your topic area.  I would also get a professional photo onto the page so first impressions are so people want to see your writing.  I would change your font color, too.

If you polish the site up a bunch and make it super friendly to professionals looking for a fandom writer, then you might have something there.

Your writing is average.  Could use some polishing.  Your articles are starting to show their age.  Continue to put new articles you have written up onto the site.

If the site is supposed to feature your writing I'd significantly decrease the images before the text.  You want people to focus on your word skills not graphics.  You can use images to complement narrative but they are secondary.

I travel with my wife as a hobby and am on Dialysis, recent trips include Brussels.  We return to South Africa (Cape Town) in November 2016. I've also visited a few other US DaVita centers and have had good experiences.

I still owe a write-up for Montreal for October 2016.
