With over 6 years of professional writing experience focusing on financial, HR, health/wellness and parenting, I am well-versed in writing compelling content. I use Google's EAT protocol to craft copy that sells while providing value to your reader, avoiding keyword stuffing and boring, dry writing. An informed, amused reader is more likely to come back and convert to a client, especially because I use well-researched authorities to back up my writing.

I live in the Midwest US with my children, a wife, several other small mammals, and Lincoln’s ghost (probably). My body has recently begun experimenting with balding, so I’m excited about that. I write about my exploits with weight loss and humor at

I have years of experience researching and writing copy for a variety of websites, businesses and blogs and I’m interested in working with you!

I’m currently working on a spooky children’s book (a spooky book, not a book for spooky children though that might actually be my target market).

1 - Is Going In And Out Of Ketosis Dangerous?

Sometimes people cheat. Whether you’re unplugging your boyfriend’s controller at Mario Kart or writing your test answers on your water bottle, it happens. Even though anyone following the keto diet knows that it’s healthy for reasons beyond weight loss, sometimes you fall off the wagon.

That’s perfectly fine – a diet that is 80% keto and 20% not is still better than the standard American diet and will result in benefits to health. The very act of having a planned “cheat day” can lead to better overall quality of diet adherence. Mindfulness is a huge part of living effectively, and eating habits are not immune to these benefits.

Keto is far more restrive than most ways of eating, however. Even strictly following calories-in, calories-out allows you to eat whatever you want in smaller portions. The question of cheating specific to keto is therefore a different animal, both physically and psychologically. New research however shows that you either need to plan your “cheats” very carefully or avoid them entirely. Let’s look at why...


2 - Eating Japanese Food While In Ketosis -

Anyone who loves sushi knows that you’re only ever one artfully made tuna roll away from a better mood, and the same can be said for good Japanese food in general. While you might think that a sushi restaurant isn’t the most ideal place to eat when you’re counting carbs…prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Japanese cuisine, while it has a few carby pitfalls, is full of dishes that focus on simply prepared fish and vegetables designed to let the food speak for itself.

If you’re not already familiar with Japanese food culture, then you will almost certainly have some questions about the various fruits, vegetables, sauces, and preparations that you will be experiencing and that’s fine. The goal here is to familiarize yourself somewhat so you can make better informed food choices that are not only delicious, but also allow you to sample some of the best techniques that Japanese cooking offers. Of course all of this was written keeping in mind that you want to maintain ketosis while eating delicious food and not stressing about the type of restaurant that you’re at; Japanese food is more than just sushi, after all!


3 - Money Making Tips For The New Year -

Making money blogging

Blogging isn’t the easiest way to make money – you need to be at least moderately talented at writing or some other creative endeavor. You also need to pick a niche that is interesting and can draw in viewers; you might have a passion for snow crabs, but if nobody else cares, then your blog won’t get traffic.

To generate money using a blog, you need to:

  • Create a blog on or some other intuitive platform that allows you to monetize your posts.
  • Pick a niche that makes money. Topics that are good for this are health, weight loss, IT, web design, financial planning and parenting but there are tons out there. Use Google analytics to find a frequently searched topic you know about and start there.
  • Post. This is the most important part. You need engaging content and it needs to be regularly posted.
  • Once you have a niche, a blog and regular posts that are drawing in views, you can then find a way to monetize your viewership. Ways to do this include:
  • Displaying ads with Google Adsense
  • Doing sponsored posts for businesses in your niche; Intellifluence is a good way to do this.
  • Sell a product you personally create or a service you provide
  • Affiliate marketing by linking to another person’s product or service and getting a percentage of the sale

Simple but not easy

Blogging requires skill and discipline, but if you are able to parlay your interest in a valuable topic into a hobby that pays you money, you’re only one step away from turning it into a full-time business. And of course should you need a blogging mentor, you’re only one step away from connecting (*psst* it’s me – I’m a mentor ;-))

Finally, if you are able to market yourself, you can make good money ghostwriting for other people’s blogs and letting them take the credit. Update your LinkedIn profile to add “freelance blogger” and add some examples of your work. There are dozens of new jobs posted daily in this field on LinkedIn looking for writers to create content for already existing blogs. This is a good way to find work to supplement your own blog’s income.
