I didn’t go to marketing school. My undergraduate degree had me deconstructing modern Canadian literature, and writing thousands of words on the appearance of alliteration in Sylvia Plath poems. Critical theory, I owned it. Web design? I had a bit to learn.
But university conditioned me for the road ahead: put your head down and learn. Scour your resources for the best available information. Inform others, and in doing so, instruct yourself.
I’ve blogged with Navigator Multimedia since 2010, and have in this time contributed to Smashing Magazine, and cultivated a diverse range of web writing contracts.
I can say that I’ve honed the passion needed to deliver web marketing news and tips with in-depth understanding. I manage my resources to find shareable, valuable information. And now I’d like to share some of my resources with you.
