Elkton: Visions of Pham Chopra | Carol J. Alexander

I supervised Carol in her position as Editor for Shenandoah Living magazine.  She is a phenomenal Editor and leader. Her character is unquestionable and she strives for perfection. Carol met all deadlines and genuinely cared about the quality of Shenandoah Living. Her passion for writing a story properly and without mistakes is legendary among our staff.  She was the glue that held the magazine together and we all miss her. –Greg Shields, Publisher, Shenandoah Living Magazine, July 13, 2017

Roanoker Magazine | Carol J Alexander

Carol Alexander is a wonderful writer who showcases unique angles and heartfelt stories in every article she composes. And it’s not only about the stories but about finding them; the research is only the first step of many that she tackles without issue. Carol is a great listener, both in interviews and with me as one of her editors. She is dependable, hard-working and a true gem to work with as she always has a positive attitude and great ideas to share. I am proud to have her on my writer team at The Roanoker magazine! —Liz Long, Editor, The Roanoker, June 25, 2018

 

 

AcreageLife Magazine | Carol J Alexander

I reached out to Carol to see if she would be interested in authoring a monthly department in AcreageLife. To date, she has delivered on everything an editor wants:  she submits interesting, easy-to-read copy in a form I requested, offers to make any changes—none needed, by the way—and often beats deadlines by a considerable margin. I’d feel bad to ask more, but if I needed to, there is no doubt Carol would rise to the challenge.—Jonathan Reed, Editor, AcreageLife Magazine, June 27, 2018

Carol pitches great ideas because she bothers to understand our products. She takes direction and assignments very well and delivers completed packages — that require very little editing — on time, every time. Carol is also a wonk in our subject matter and understands how to write an effective lead that draws readers into the story. First-hand accounts, how-to, conventional reporting — Carol does it all. Carol is also a marvelously low maintenance freelancer — no hand holding required!–Hank Will, Editor in Chief at Grit, Capper’s, and Capper’s Farmer Magazines, August 28, 2014

Carol has written several articles about homeschooling for Piedmont Family Magazine. She is articulate, interesting, meets deadlines, and is easy to work with. She is very knowledgeable about homeschooling resources and does an excellent job tailoring her message to my audience and editorial guidelines. She takes feedback well and also offers suggestions for content that would be relevant and well received.— Danielle Rice, Editor, Piedmont Family Magazine, March 17, 2012

I pride myself on good grammar and spelling, but I’m not always perfect. Carol found mistakes in my web pages that may have taken me months to find. She did it quickly and didn’t make me feel dumb! Thanks, Carol! – Patrick Blair of SurvivalAtHome.com, May 8, 2014

 

 

Spelling and grammar are important to me as a writer, but mistakes in writing are inevitable. When Carol looked over some pages on my website, I was impressed with both her quick turnaround and keen eye to detail. She was able to find errors that I’d missed for months! — Krystyna Thomas of SpringMountainLiving.com, October 30, 2014

Byler Barns & Backyards | Carol J AlexanderWe needed a freelance blog writer and Carol was the perfect choice. She tackles quarterly assignments with ease and meets deadlines very well. Her creative style, coupled with sourcing industry authorities, make her writing a joy to read.

Carol is the definition of professionalism. She is always cheerful and upbeat. Her feedback and ideas are consistently positive, with the aim of improving the topic at hand. She offers novel ideas to improve the current project. Carol took the concept of a manufacturer’s blog site and single-handedly turned it into reality with minimum input from me. She orchestrated writers to join the effort and guides them toward relevant topics. She edits their work to deliver articles that fit the blog site perfectly. Then she creates Pinterest-ready graphics, categorized in a coherent manner and search friendly. I would put my blog site, her handiwork, against any other manufacturer’s blog site on the web. — Matt Gross, January 4, 2016

 

Carol delivers fresh, engaging content on a regular basis at ChristianPF.com. She does a fantastic job writing on a variety of topics and produces content in a timely manner. Hire her for your publication. You won’t regret it! – John Frainee, Co-editor of ChristianPF.com, October 11th, 2012

 

 

Carol has done a great job as a freelance writer for me at NaturalHealthEzine.com. Of the dozens of writers I have worked with over the years she has been one of the most dependable and thorough. She consistently creates helpful and well-researched content. I highly recommend her. — Bob Lotich, November 28, 2011
