Archive for December, 2017



December… that time of the year when all of the rosy billing predictions we made in January crawl under the front porch and die quietly. (“Don’t cry son; he’s in a better place now.”)

Anyway, time for one last push for a couple of quick copywriting assignments, and hopefully getting paid for some old ones. And hey, why not take a look back at some 2017 copywriting highlights?

  • Blogging, press releases, and social media management for an international floral chemical company
  • Writing print ads for some gun manufacturers
  • Blogging for a Charleston tax preparer
  • Blogging for a Columbia tax attorney

Finally 2017’s HIT LIST (but it only RHYMES with “Hit”)
