About Amanda

My name is Amanda Cross, and I am a freelance writer who is passionate about providing excellent and informative content. I have been blogging on my own since November 2011, and in 2017 I decided that I wanted to help other bloggers and businesses produce written content.

We all know that content is king! Bloggers and business owners cannot depend on a few tiny pieces of content to carry their brands online anymore. Sites like Pinterest and Google can provide a whirlwind of customers and readers that will help you reach your dreams online. You need a freelancer who can connect with your audience, create content of all shapes/sizes, and provide it all promptly.

I am that freelancer.

I have experience with a wide array of blogging platforms such as WordPress, Squarespace, Blogger, etc. I have experience using different software and sites such as Google Drive, Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Cloud software, and more. I am always learning and growing my skill set.

I currently focus on providing content in the following categories: higher education, human resources, career, digital marketing, and blogging. If you have a topic you think I might be interested in, send it my way, I am always looking to expand my writing portfolio. I am a millennial, so I often write for millennial audiences, but I have also written many pieces aimed at an older audience.

I am a recent graduate school graduate. I got my Master’s In Sociology in August 2017. I also have a Bachelor’s in Sociology with a Criminology concentration and a minor in Anthropology.

I cannot wait to work with you on the content your digital brand desires!
