BY VISITING WWW.BOLTFROMTHEBLUECOPYWRITING.COM, YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THE DISCLAIMER AND CONSENTING TO OURTERMS AND CONDITIONS.
My blog is a resource guide for educational and informational purposes. And of course, the occasional rant against the word utilize, people who don't come to the airport with their documents rigidly in order, and the entire concept of casual Fridays.
To write my articles, I use my experiences, the experiences of others and various other resources including but not limited to stuff I google, Zinsser's On Writing Well and my local library.That said, my advice doesn’t come with any guarantees, and I am not a licensed anything. By visiting this site, you’re essentially signing a contract that says that you understand that I make no guarantees, and you won’t try to sue me or report me to any overlord of any shape or form. Because then I'd probably have to dislike you on principle, and nobody wants that. Or an overlord, for that matter.

AS LOVED BY
Rachel Allen I actually love you! After finally reading the new content for the site, on my new site I am so proud of you and love it ALL!!!
What I love about Rachel is her ability to quickly grasp the copy requirements and create something that really embodies your purpose and also engages the reader. She is a master of her craft and a thoroughly lovely person to work with. Highly recommend her services :)
Many of Rachel's blogs have become some of our most popular in terms of views, and have helped with customer engagement as well as SEO.
Rachel was extremely professional, punctual and organised when working with us, and always produced a very high quality of work.
I would highly recommend Rachel! She seamlessly blended my two about pages into one, in a way that truly sounded like me. I'm already looking at which other pages could use her clever wordsmith skills.
