Darlene Elizabet Williams;
Darlene, have been a life-long historical fiction reader since my mother brought home “Little Women” from the library. The story of my heroine, Beth, so touched me the heart-wrenching scene where she passes away was compulsively reread. In Grade 4 at the time, I insisted I be known as Beth (derived from my middle name) in honour of Elizabeth March for a greater part of that school year.
I decided to review historical fiction novels under “Darlene Williams HF Reviews”. This just wasn’t enough for me. I took several writing courses online and through the University of British Columbia and University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The confidence to work on my projects is now within me. Research books have accumulated. Used bookstores are a favorite haunt.
Coming in 2014 is Freelance Writing Express – How to Earn $$$ Within Two Weeks on Constant Content, Elance, and Guru. I am excited to share my career knowledge of freelance writing through both the guidebook and mentoring sessions. I offer mentoring sessions for aspiring freelance writers. Through these sessions, I share how to kick-start a freelance writing career and start earning money within a few weeks. Freelance Writing Express is based solely on my experiences and a system I personally developed to achieve to success.
I am a copy editor and proofreader specializing in fiction and nonfiction manuscripts, web content and articles. Accolades received include:
Today’s episode is “Outsourcing Secrets” where I discuss the ability to grow your small business by hiring works from other countries. I also cover the Facebook hashtags; the end of Google Reader and the start of so much more; how semantic data is helping fight global hunger; hacking news including Galaxy S4 attacks, Windows 8.1 bounty, and Google's scanning for malicious apps in the Chrome Web Store. I also review Paper.li and talk about abusive sales process leading to improved intelligence for businesses.
This week Jonathan covers the MOZ versus DOZ legal battle. Google's launch of a semantic data markup tool. A major vulnerability within PayPal and an exploitive malware within the Android operating system. The main topic is the governments request for Google to hand over user data and Verizon to hand over phone records. The rant of the week centers on freelancers meeting deadlines and the App highlight is grammarly versus copyscape.
Since the advent of such sites as fiverr and elance, the way in which business owners outsource projects has changed for better or worse. Some entrepreneurs rave about low cost freelance sites, while others lament the lack of quality control. If you have or are thinking of using these online resources, tune in as we take you through the good, the bad and the ugly side of outsourcing, offshoring and online microtasking.

If you've been laid off, you've probably quickly realized how expensive and difficult it is to get health insurance for you and/or your family. WalletPop writers Aaron Crowe and Jennie Phipps discuss how freelancers can find health insurance, and how even if you can afford it, insurance is still hard to find. We also discuss a contest by Elance for a freelancer to win a year's worth of health insurance premiums, up to $10,000, by simply describing how they fit into the new way to work in a recession.
