  • We spent the past weekend in Berlin @wceurope! We asked attendees to pin where they’re from and their dream WordCamp destination on our map. So, now we’re asking you—where are you from and what is your dream WordCamp destination? Tell us in the comments! 🗺🌎
  • Amy’s Ice Creams (@amysicecreams) was established in 1984 and has since been known as one of the most quintessential Austin eateries. Know for their quirky interiors, flavors (Buffy the Campfire Slayer, anyone? 🔥🍨) and their delicious Mexican Vanilla flavor — this place embodies Keep Austin Weird, and we like that. 🍨 What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
  • @bygeorgiagrace started her blog almost four years ago. “At the time, I worked in finance, and I knew absolutely nothing about building a website or about how to “do” social media. All I knew was that I had a vision and a goal to build a blog as a creative outlet for myself and as a self-sustaining business that would allow me to have independence in my life.

The process of getting my blog up and running was a walk in the park because of Bluehost, and because of that, I unequivocally recommend them to anyone who is looking to start a website or blog or to anyone who already has one but who is looking to upgrade or switch over to a different platform. Bluehost is one of those brands that has earned my loyalty because their product is the cream of the crop, and their service just puts the user experience over the top.” We are honored that we could be a part of Georgia’s journey to building a successful blog from scratch and helping her find the perfect place to WordPress. 💙 Is it your turn next?

Must Haves in A Writer’s Portfolio

Best WordPress Hosting Providers in 2019 Compared
tfolio to be considered a professional content writer.

Published Writing

As said before, you must have done a lot of writing. However, in your portfolio, you must include published writing as well. Published means that it is recognized by a credible publisher, such as a newspaper, magazine, or well-known website. You’ll need a fair amount of these when you apply to a content writing job, because it reflects that you can write content that is intended for a large audience.

Go for writing competitions and review submissions for an easy publishing. Small newspapers, magazines, and niche websites are usually pretty easy to get through. Make sure you provide a copy inside your portfolio, but not the original piece. Keep the original piece safe for your own memoirs.

Blog Writing

The digital era is here, which means that your writing has got to be there too. A lot of companies are going to ask for samples of your writing via link, which means that you’re gonna have to own a blog. You can easily create a blog using the best WordPress hosting services and customize it to your own liking. Make sure that the blog article that you present in your portfolio has a moderate to high amount of traffic, to show recruiters that your writing gains a lot of attention from the audience. You should also provide the link in addition to the screen capture of your blog post.

Social Media Writing

What we mean by social media writing are simply the captions you use or the copywriting you place on your posts. If it gained a lot of likes and comments, then it’s worth showing. In addition to being able to attract and engage audience through concise writing, you will also show recruiters that your photo content is popular. You can boast that you have photography skills if, for example, one of your Instagram picture posts with your own poem as the caption invites a lot of people to like and comment. You can also screen capture Tweets that became viral or Facebook posts that is shared many times.
