Writer Bio and Portfolio

Steve ChittendenMy love of writing is accompanied by first hand experience running businesses since 1986 when I started my first company doing signs and graphics. Having spent the years since that time in some form of promotions has yielded an understanding of both operating and promoting a business.

I actually didn’t begin practicing professional writing until starting this company in 2002. Until then, I only focused on graphic design, learned selling and people skills, and took an interest in web design in the 1990’s not too long after it was birthed. I was told I was a good writer, it just wasn’t something I pursued professionally.

While taking university classes beginning in 2001 to sharpen my skills, the confirmation came in taking writing courses at the university level. I not only found the classes naturally enjoyable, the fact that I found the classes easy, combined with the feedback I had from instructors, revealed that my writing skill was better than I thought. The classes gave me the opportunity to enhance that skill even further.

Although my interests are diverse and I can write on a wide variety of topics and purposes, the one I’ve found the most useful is helping small business owners communicate with their customers and potential customers to strengthen their business. I enjoy the accomplishment gathering information from clients and translating that into an effective presentation.

Writing Examples:

As you review samples of my writing, I trust you will sense the enthusiasm I have for writing. I’ve chosen older samples that span several years and topics so you can see the difference between earlier and more recent skill levels, as well as variation in style and purpose. I enjoy challenges that spur constant improvement and variety to avoid falling into a rut.

I was honored to be invited as an author for the Evan Carmichael business web site. Below are few selected examples of my writing published on Evan Carmichael.

If you’ve already been to our main Writing Services page, you would have noticed the featured sites that demonstrate my writing and content creation. Beyond that, there’s not too much need for me to list an extensive examples because this site and blog offer a self contained portfolio of my writing style, skill, and even a bit of my personality since the boss told me it was okay to not be stuffy or overly formal with this site.
