- Afton Jones: she’s the Moxie Writer
- a person who can be hired to write blog posts
I write stuff for people.
There’s a craving for words in my soul. So instead of mooning over it, I’m following my passion with 7 years blogging and 2 years freelance writing experience.
If the pen is mightier than the sword, than I’ve got the powah!
You can start singing that Jem and the Holograms song now.
I got my start writing a blog about my dog.
No, I’m not going to link you to it. It’s old history, man.
But it did give me a head start in WordPress and dealing with all that comes with running a WordPress blog. It also sent me down the road of handling social media with a blog (hey, who doesn’t want to follow an adorable dog on Twitter?).
I wanted to write fiction, but turns out I’m a lot better at researching than making up stuff.
I still like fiction, but I love my facts too. Putting together a reality-based and educational article is a thrill in it’s own right.
My interest in fiction writing pulls me towards storytelling of all forms and weaving a relatable image of what I want to say. Why write something as dry as moldy bread if you can write it with the flavor of a fresh cupcake?
I really like cupcakes.
I have more interests than is probably healthy.
We’d be here a long time if I listed everything that I’ve tried my hand at over the years. Or even worse, has sent me down a rabbit hole and eaten up more of my free time than I’d care to admit. What can I say? The world is just too cool to stop learning about it.
The upside is I have a lot of topics I like to write about. The downside is I have to make sure not to mix my jargon when I talk to people.
“Woah, that grassfed heifer must have leveled up this season! She’s as slick as the parallax effect!”
If this all sounds cool to you, hire me!
