As a freelance writer, I never let anything keep me from completing an assignment — not even a 10 1/2-hour time difference for one source or an unreliable internet connection for another source.

For this piece, I interviewed one person via email, because her training schedule in Pune, India, kept her from making our appointments to talk via Skype. I interviewed a source in Rwanda via Skype text messages because her internet wasn’t fast enough to touch base by Skype.

No matter. I got the story — and my client the International Center at the University of Missouri got the news they wanted for their website.

As a freelance writer, I’m learning all the time. For this article, I needed to study up on art, academic success backlash and dairy cow reproduction. The result is an article that highlights the benefits of scholars going to abroad for the scholars themselves , their students and the University of Missouri.

Looking for a fast, fresh, well-written website?

Using the WordPress.com platform, I create websites with blog capabilities. I make it easy for any person or firm to have a bright, lively website presence without a lot of work — or expense.

Examples of my work includes this website, DiannaOBrien.com, SteveWeinbergAuthor.com and HockmanInteriorDesign.com

Here’s what Sherry Hockman of Hockman Interior Design said about my work:

“I really enjoyed working with Dianna on the development and re-launch of my website and blog for my interior design company. Before we started, my blog was basically dead in the water. Dianna helped me revitalize the website and created a site that people return to again and again. In addition to redesigning the website, she developed and wrote weekly blog posts and in three months, the number of visitors to the website doubled and as a result, I have several new clients. Dianna was professional but also personable, and made the entire process fun. Working with Dianna was a good investment, one which I’m sure will continue to pay off by new clients finding my new, helpful online presence.”
