National Readathon Day

As if I needed an excuse to curl up with a good book.

I've been reading voraciously since a young age. On my first trip to the library I came home with 21 books. I couldn't believe they were letting me take home books to read and all I had to do was promise to bring them back when I was done. I knew then that I lived in a great country.

Good Writing

I never really thought of myself as a writer. I've written in diaries all my life, but for no one else but me. I've written papers for all sorts of classes, but just to complete an assignment. What writing for a blog has changed for me is that I now write just for the enjoyment of getting my thoughts down and hopefully find an audience for my musings.

What I'm worried about is while I was a good student, I was never taught how to be a good writer. I know nouns and…

How to Choose Curriculum Writing and Design Service

Writing and carrying out the design of a CV is a challenge that we all, once, have faced with greater or lesser success, but as your career evolves, curriculum development becomes more complex and requires a higher level of professionalization to express the differential value against the competition, the CV requires a much more strategic, differentiating, detailed and objective oriented design and writing. That is why many professionals, aware of the importance of transmitting the impeccable…See More
