ABOUT YOLIE DENISE
Hi, I am Yolanda and welcome to my virtual writing nook. It appears we have something in common. You need content, and I write content!
I have been churning out online content for well over 10 years. I cannot believe how fast time flies in the virtual world. I cut my writing teeth at content mills like Demand Studios and Examiner. I was the Content Mill Queen, churning out up to 20 articles a week. It was both exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. But, I loved writing, and I was also trying to earn a decent living from my writing.
But those days are long gone, I now write for reputable companies both large and small.
I am that girl you see sitting at a corner table in Starbucks, eyes intently staring at the screen, typing feverishly; oblivious to anything going on around her. I have tried writing from Dunkin Donuts, but it’s just not the same. I find it to be Hella bright in Dunkin and I like that dimmed lighting effect that you experience at Starbucks.
Good words are hard to come by!
I would describe my writing style as laid back and personal. What I mean by that is, I like for my readers to imagine themselves in whatever topic I am writing about. I like my readers to feel as If I know their situation and I am speaking directly to them.
You should want your readers to feel this way as well. If the people reading your content cannot relate, then, you have no chance of converting them into customers. That’s why it’s important to know your audience, you can’t create content for everyone. That’s impossible!
I used to try to write for everything and everyone when I worked for the content mills. I found myself getting frustrated. For one, and number two, I did not enjoy some of the topics I was writing. The topics needed so much research that I always felt like I was missing something.
Now, I only write about topics in which I have years of experience and that I also enjoy. My favorite topics are Personal Finance, Payroll, and Workplace Issues.
