At Bolt from the Blue Copywriting, we are inclusive. This means that we don’t discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender identity, nation of origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, mental health status, physical disabilities, or literally anything else you can think of. What’s more, we don’t work with those who do.

This a dealbreaker, so if you can’t get on board with that, then we can’t do business with you.




My blog is a resource guide for educational and informational purposes. And of course, the occasional rant against the word utilize, people who don’t come to the airport with their documents rigidly in order, and the entire concept of casual Fridays.

To write my articles, I use my experiences, the experiences of others and various other resources including but not limited to stuff I google, Zinsser’s On Writing Well and my local library.That said, my advice doesn’t come with any guarantees, and I am not a licensed anything. By visiting this site, you’re essentially signing a contract that says that you understand that I make no guarantees, and you won’t try to sue me or report me to any overlord of any shape or form. Because then I’d probably have to dislike you on principle, and nobody wants that. Or an overlord, for that matter.
