That did not go to plan and I pulled out due to breaches in the contract by the developer and agent. It took a year of visits to offices, contacting Trading Standards and a court case to eventually get my money back. I started my writing career back in 2006 when I published an eBook about my experiences of buying in Bulgaria. This eBook has gone on to sell quite a lot of copies and has been featured in prominent magazines and newspapers such as the New York Times blog and the Financial Times magazine. I have also written for my own blogs and websites (Bulgaria and property related and farming related) as well as others such as Overseas Cafe and International Property Investment blogs.
Over the next few years I bought and sold many rural Bulgarian properties, renovating some. I had a new home built in Bulgaria and survived various court cases with builders. I run a success website called TheTravelBug.org as well asTheSkiBug.co.uk.
I have been writing content for my own websites (property investment, travel, ski-ing) as well as writing for other blogs for many years. My aim is to be a travel writer, reviewing different places on my own travel blog. My partner is a photographer (amateur) and so this is something we can do together.
I have good contacts in Bulgaria after living and working there for close to 10 years and can advice on any aspect of property selling and buying. I can also provide translations of documents from Bulgarian to English and vice versa (not done by me but by a good friend). Although I can read Bulgarian to some extent so am happy to peruse documents for you.
I have a good working knowledge of html and designed and update all my own websites. I can work with wordpress or blogger platforms (word press preferred). I have numerous articles for submission to article directories to help publicise and link back to my own websites as well as articles on a freelance basis for other website and blog owners. I have written website content for other companies and proof read websites for people.
In the last few years I have heavily marketed my own websites through forums, blog posting, articles and directories and social bookmarking and have achieved high rankings for keywords. But now prefer to concentrate on writing than marketing, but still continue to market my own websites.
English is my native language and I have good written and grammar skills. Quality of work is assured and good communication. I can communicate by email, through PPH or skype.
I am happy to carry out research into most fields but have a background in medical biocehmistry, law and property investment. My areas of interest are travel, real estate and animal welfare. My main interest is in Bulgarian property investment.
I also completed a proof reading course several years ago and am happy to proof read articles and ebooks.
I am available for one off jobs or longer term commitments.
