Having an editor and proofreader has been a priceless investment in my business. I started blogging about Real Estate in Tampa in 2006 and while I am a Realtor and know my subject content, I found having someone who is experienced in writing saved me from making huge grammatical errors. My blog is my lifeline and where I get most all of my business. If people are going to take you seriously, you'd better have the eyes of someone else proofreading and making suggestions before you post your first article to the world wide web. My real estate blog reaches reporters, colleagues and business partners, not to mention my real world clients. I can honestly say that what money I have spent has come back to me 100 times over. Thanks, Melina, for your hard work!

I had the pleasure of working with Melina Druga while managing the Healthy Kids Of America website. This blog was brand new and Melina was the first writer to be hired to write for us. Melina is the ultimate professional; she consistently submitted interesting, well thought out articles full of relevant information and parent-friendly tips and tricks. Melina’s passion for writing is evident in every article that she writes and I really enjoyed working with her week after week.
