 Special ALERT from WritingFor Money:

I just wanted to let you know that we're still offering a FREE one-month trial subscription to Writing for Money, the online journal for freelance writers. You've been receiving our Heads-Up Alerts for some time now and we thought you might be ready to take advantage of the FREE offer.

If you're interested, go to www.writingformoney.com/freesub1 on the Internet and follow the simple directions.

Here's how the offer works: You go to the site I mentioned above and fill out a brief informational form. Then hit "continue." This will take you to the second page, which will ask you to choose a user name and password (so that you can access WfM 7 days a week, 24 hours a day).

You'll also be asked to leave a credit card number. We won't charge your number. If, at the end of the free one-month trial subscription, you decide to become a paid subscriber...simply do nothing. We'll charge your card $7.95 per month for your subscription. If you decide not to become a paid subscriber, just send me an email (any time during the free-trial-subscription period) and let me know. We'll cancel your subscription at the end of the one-month free trial period and that will be the end of it. We will continue to send you the Heads-Up Alerts whether you decide to subscribe or not...just as a courtesy to a fellow writer. I hope you'll decide to join us.

Best regards,

Personal Biography

If you've never used one in your portfoilo, or included one along with your resume and application, you might consider trying it!  A Bio is a wonderful supplement to the more "traditional standards only please" resume piece, and gives potential clients or employers a "different" view of you and your professioinal history.

 You have a lot of "conversational" freedom within a Bio, and it's OKAY to show a little personality, too.  Why not include one with your next presentation and see how it affects your response quotient??  Even in the "driest" of fields, employers are looking for real people with a tasteful amount of "verve" to STAND OUT.

If you'd like more info about this specialized promotion item, or to see some examples of good ones, just E-Mail me through the link provided above, and dog-gone it, go ahead--ASK ME!
