+Lori Widmer shares hilarious ad that I guess was serious. All those no-talent professional writers can get annoying. ☺

He's not looking for a "professional" writer BUT he wants someone with "strong writing skills". Huh? Say what?? I would hope people have enough common sense to flush his request down the toilet.

Think Upwork picked the wrong blogger to mess with? The funny thing is, they probably don't even know they sent +Jennifer Mattern one of their CANNED marketing emails. 
It's days like these I wish I hadn't retired Naked PR. If you don't already know, I used to own a small PR firm, where I was an early specialist in online public relations and social media consulting (before everyone under the sun started thinking they were qualified to call themselves that). Naked PR was my blog where I had …

Seriously. It would have taken them how long to know I despise their company and warn freelancers to avoid them like the plague? 10 seconds with a simple Google site search? I hate lazy marketers.

Introduction

Standing out in a sea of business writers is no small task. Try distinguishing yourself with a name like Cathy Miller.

But I like simple – both in my name and my business writing. I believe simple is better.

Check out my business communication site, Simply stated business, for tips and downloads for better business communication. I also have a health care blog, Simply stated health care, which helps keep health care simple and informative. Visit my blogs and share your thoughts.

I have been writing professionally for over 30 years. Variety seems to be the key to my experience. I simply love to learn new things and share the knowledge.


Bragging rights
Another passion of mine is participating in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure-60 miles in 3 days. I have been participating since 2003. I simply cannot walk away. http://Why 60 Miles.com shares my journey.
