About

My name is Ruth.

Welcome to my workspace on the worldwide web, Windmill Words.

I am a freelance writer who specializes in virtually assisting professional bloggers.  Writing, proofreading, photo editing, comment screening, and social media management are just a few of the many tasks I am willing and able to handle.

I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor of Science in English. After those four years of instruction and critiquing from some of the best writers in the Western United States, I framed my diploma and went to work….as a wife and full-time mother. Eventually, the adventures of motherhood inspired me to begin keeping my own blogs,A House in Holland and A Trip to Holland.

Writing, designing, and managing a blog for my own personal enjoyment has led me to opportunities to do so professionally. I am happy to offer my services at this time to other bloggers.

Always one to try the do-it-yourself approach first, my internet publishing and graphic design skills were self-taught as I began to find my way around the world wide web. I’ve polished those skills with online courses (from Alt Channel and The Blog Designer Network) and by attending Altitude Design Summit (a professional conference for design and social media).  As one of the only writers catering specifically to the unique needs of bloggers, I’ve been asked to share my expertise on panels at Altitude Design Summit  and BlogHer Food.  With a combination of well-chosen words and blogging savvy, I’m ready to help you power your blog farther than you ever imagined it could go!
