I'm LJ Sinclair, and I'm a writer
Sounds like the opening spiel to an addiction confession, doesn't it? And in my case, there's some truth to that. I get quite twitchy if I go too long between arranging words in a pleasing order. And there's no twelve-step programme for this kind of addiction, let me tell you.
The right word, in the right place, at the right time
That's the one-line summary for marketing purposes, which will allegedly make people's eyes light up and their wallets open.
Now, anyone can choose their words and type them in a word processor or in an email or on Twitter or Facebook. And I'd say this is the reason the world is in such a mess right now.
A qualified and experienced writer can help you avoid the pitfalls of communication, so you can clearly communicate in a respectful and engaging manner (and by engaging I don't mean ALL CAPS, FLASHING IMAGES or impossible to avoid popups).
But why isn't it pretty?
Simple really: I've decided to host the whole thing with GitHub.
But deeper than that, I'm a writer not a designer.
I've built sites with straight HTML/CSS, PHP, Wordpress, Jekyll and Zola. And in the majority of cases, I spend more time trying to hack the themes to do something useful than doing what I'm good at.
I'd rather leave design to the professionals.
But if you want a designer, I can definitely recommend Manita Johnson
