Author Spotlight: Vanessa H.

Check out our new series, Author Spotlights, which features advice from authors who have shown great enthusiasm and growth since joining Textbroker.

Hello Textbroker Authors!

Today, we bring to you the first in a series of many Author Spotlights. We wanted to take a moment every month and recognize an author who has showed great enthusiasm and growth since first signing up.

We are keeping our eyes peeled for future spotlights, so keep on working hard- you might be next!

Author Spotlight #1: Get to know Vanessa H.

Tell us a bit about yourself. (hobbies, interests, etc.)

I’m a word nerd in the truest sense! I love reading and writing, which is why Textbroker is such an obvious fit for me. I also love to get away from the screens and run outdoors, preferably in the mountains or on a scenic trail.

What is your current star level?

I am currently a 4-star author, although I have passed the proofreading test and aim to become a 5-star author as quickly as possible. I feel fortunate that there are so many great Team, Direct, and Open Orders available for 4-star authors each day.

What is your favorite topic to create content about?

Without a doubt, I most love to write about travel. I have lived everywhere from South Africa to Hong Kong, and I am always on the lookout for potential new destinations. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I get paid to research things like the top attractions in London or the best hotels in Singapore!

What piece of advice would you give to a new Textbroker author?

The one piece of advice I would give to a new Textboker author is this can absolutely be a career, but you have to put in the time and effort to make it happen. I know that many authors are happy to write for just a few hours a week or temporarily between other employment, but it is also entirely possible for Textbroker to become full-time employment. The key for me was getting into the right frame of mind and setting aside eight hours a day to write, to be free from distractions and to put effort into learning protocol, grammar rules and advances in the world of SEO.

We’d like to give a special thank you to Vanessa H. for taking part in this month’s Author Spotlight. Stay tuned for upcoming interviews with exemplary authors! If you have questions you’d like us to include in next month’s Spotlight, send them to [email protected]

This was a good post. It is so easy to use fillers without even realizing it.
