I was one of those kids who loved phonics. Sounding out words was fun for me. (I still like to look at a name and figure out how to pronounce it.) My main interests became reading and writing. Mostly reading up until a few years ago. That’s when I decided to start a home-based business.
I researched it a bit and found that I should ask myself this question: “What to you like to do?” “Well,” I said to myself, “i like to read. And write. And web surf.” “OK,” myself replied. “Can you make money doing that?” “I don’t know”, I said. “Let’s find out!”
Yes. I am hokey. And if you don’t know what that word means, stay tuned. It’ll come up later.
So I started a business doing internet research and computer instruction. Taught a few classes. Had a few customers. But I wasn’t doing very well.
“No motivation,” myself whispers. (“Shut up,” I say.)
So I did some more self-research, and decided that writing was what i enjoyed most. The reports, the class syllabuses, the advertising copy. And “Bazinga!” (Why, yes, I do.) Content writing became my new modus operandi.
Resulting in this new business called EJG Research. EJG is me. I kept the research part because that’s what I do to find what to write. And all the cool names with the word “write” in them seem to be taken. And no, I won’t tell you my middle name unless you buy me dinner.
So here on this blog, I will attempt to show you how much I love words. And some of the other pages will help you hire me as a content writer/researcher. You’ll find lots of information, when I actually write those other pages, like contact details, and mission statement, pricing data, and yada, yada, yada…is there a copyright on that term?
In the meantime….
This blog will be a compilation of words. What they mean. How they are used. The history of the word. Maybe even a definition.
One word per post. Maybe one per day. Maybe two. Maybe three or four a week. But I do promise to keep blogging until you all get sick of me. Or my fingers cramp. Whichever comes first.
