Nice Things Clients Say About My Work:
Shannon is an excellent writer and a highly valued member of our team. She follows instruction well and produces articles that are well researched and easy to edit. Her tone is friendly and approachable. She is a great author, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Lucy Easton – Editor, Red Cat Media
Shannon Cutts came to me at Be A Freelance Blogger with one of those pitches every editor dreams of receiving: It was polite, followed the guidelines, stayed on topic, and — most important of all — had a FRESH take on the chosen topic. The written drafts that followed were equally stellar. Shannon never complained about needed edits (we’re very picky at BAFB) and remained positive throughout the publishing process. Her finished article is a polished gem and is currently one of my personal favorites. And she even stuck around to answer comments from readers! If you’ve got a blog in need of good writing from a writer with a positive attitude, give Shannon a try! Lauren Tharp – Editor, Be A Freelance Blogger
Shannon is one of the most reliable writers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Not only is her work comprehensive, but she is also able to successfully discuss a variety of topics in the style we prefer. I don’t have to worry about editing too much with Shannon’s articles, and I’ve consistently trusted her skills in research and writing for special projects. She always accepts feedback with enthusiasm and is able to produce quality pieces quickly. We truly value her perspective and hope to continue working with her! Evelyn F. Romans – Managing Editor, Contributor Network, The Krazy Coupon Lady, LLC
Shannon is an accomplished writer, and her words have the ability to connect easily with all people about important issues, including recovery, learning, personal growth, health, wellness, and more. I enjoy working with Shannon – in addition to her writing skills, she is a kind, creative and insightful person who takes very personal ownership of each project and is not satisfied until I am satisfied. Kimberly Krueger, MSW, LCSW – Owner, Southlake Counseling
I was very impressed with Shannon’s work. She had the assignments in a day or two before they were due and I didn’t have to fix even one article of hers. She has followed all the directions that we requested and it made my job that much easier. Thank you very much! Stephanie Ward – Blog Post Coordinator, 360 Enterprises, Inc.
Shannon is a clear thinker and good writer. She’s written articles we’ve published in our newsletter and is one of our most consistent and popular bloggers at EatingDisordersBlogs.com. Her enthusiasm and great energy come across in her writing and in our collaborations. We love working with her! Lindsey Hall & Leigh Cohn – Editor-in-Chief & Publisher, Gurze Books/Bulimia.com
Shannon has been a pleasure to work with on Psych Central, and has regularly blogged with us for over 2 1/2 years. During that time, she has been reliably writing engaging and often thought-provoking articles about the mentoring process. It’s been an eye-opening experience for me, and I’ve appreciated her excellent writing for our company. John Grohol, PysD – Founder/Editor-in-Chief, Psych Central
Shannon is an amazing writer; conveying heartfelt emotion and humor while keeping her grammar impeccable. A Digital Editor for many years, I always give a little sigh of relief when editing Shannon’s work because I know I will hardly have to do a thing! Jessica DiGiacinto – Editor, Psych Central
