Hello everyone! It’s been a while, but Latchkey is finally up and running again. I took a hiatus from blogging to focus on my full-time job as well as to plan a wedding. (Aiiii!!!!) So, if you noticed the name change, that’s why. (For those of you who are curious, it’s pronounced “Keen.”)
Although it’s been fun taking off a few years, it’s time to come back. This blog first and foremost is a place where my clients can find my portfolio and contact me. But secondly, it’s where we can kick around some of the standard mid-twenties issues that many of us encounter. Working out while working 8-5. Networking within your industry. Navigating a healthy work/life balance. Eating properly. Budgeting. In other words, the daily grind. But of course, we’ll still look at marketing strategies as well as creative writing once in a while too.
I’m excited to begin this again and re-join the community. I’ll be posting about once a week.
All the best!

(And yes, I squealed with excitement when I typed it in for the first time.) This means I’m starting to get started on getting a logo created, and you may see the entire website layout change. It’s exciting to start this re-branding process, especially the re-vamping of my SEO. (You can read a little more about the title of Latchkey Writing & Editing here.)

1) Use current news in your articles. Not only does referencing other media bolster your credibility, but it also forces you as a blogger to stay informed about what is going on in our world. This can be as easy as downloading a news app or following news sites on Twitter, which is how this writer found out that today is the 30th anniversary of the song “We Are the World.”
