Last year I did an “Editing Report for 2014 and a Preview of 2015” post over on my other blog, Rhymes with Croatia. But it makes sense to move that here now. I’m happy to say I had another solid year of editing. Here’s a quick look at what I did in 2015, as well as a glimpse into 2015.
Editing in 2015
It was a slow year for fiction, which makes me sad. I edited “Turmoil (Episode One of the Caregiver series)” for Astrid “Artistikem” Cruz and a novel later in the year that I’m not sure what the author plans to do with in terms of publishing routes.
My brand and campaign management clients took up the bulk of my efforts.
Allvoices saw major changes, including a shift in focus and a name change – they’re now PulsePoint Create. My role is essentially the same. Without spending a lot of time, I’m counting at least 14 campaigns I managed for them last year.
I also added another major client – EmpowHER. They’re a women’s health website and provide information from health professionals as well as peers about issues important to women’s health and wellness. I’ve been working with them to manage a sponsored campaign from Noven promoting menopause education. It’s been a great experience working with this group of talented, driven women.
I’ve also done some smaller projects for other clients, including resumes, reworking a blog that was a unique mix of personal/professional/comedy, a site for a home-based jewelry business, and upkeep for existing clients.
PulsePoint has started off strong and I’m currently working six campaigns for them. EmpowHER is about to wrap the contract we started last July but I’ve received word that there’s been an extension through March.
I’m still working on my annual portfolio update, which includes all of my other online presences. My goal is to finish that by the end of January.
I really enjoy editing fiction and I missed it last year so I’m going to look for an opportunity to do more of that this year. Keep me in mind if you know of anyone looking for an editor or help with their online presence (social media, basic website). I love helping the small guys get started because so often they don’t know where to begin and then either people can’t find them or judge them for doing it poorly.
