Hi, I'm Rohan, a Freelance Writer, Digital Nomad, and Travel Blogger with a WordPress site called 50firststeps.com. I'm an extremely skilled writer and editor with a BA in Literature. I can write Travel Articles, Blog Posts, Press Release, Newsletters, SEO Articles, Magazine Articles, Website Content, etc. I'm also highly adept at Wordpress and SEO practices. As far as editing is concerned, I've worked as a commissioning editor for reputed publishing houses, and as such I'm a trained veteran of the editing industry. I've had various articles, both fiction and non fiction, published in reputed journals, newspapers and online publications. I have a bachelors degree in English Literature. I also have experience working in Magazines, Newspapers, and Corporate organizations, all of which has given me a very rounded and versatile idea of creating content specifically catered to shifting and varying needs.

    “Communication was great and everything was delivered to time and budget, however there was disparity between my expectations of the work and what was actually delivered. This is as much my responsibility as the freelancer - expertise in the fields I needed content on was limited, and not always something that desk research can provide.”
