Joined 7 years ago from Charleston, SC




I am a freelance writer, author and book publicist who lives in Charleston, South Carolina. I once had a very successful website but in recent years I limit my online activity to twitter, and I sometimes write a blog or two at http://authorfriendly.wordpress.com. I have several web pages including a site at http://psychologyknowledge.com and http://diabetesmellitus2.org.

If you would like to have a hubpage of your own, sign up.

While I am also a psychologist by trade, the articles on this hub reflect for the most part my personal and not my professional beliefs and perspectives. When I do write on psychology topics I am not in any way intending or offering help, or a balanced scholarly analysis, and would expect that your answers would be addressed by your own clinician who would be familiar with your situation more specifically and acting in a professional capacity.

        Is there any good reason why the program can't be modified to add at leat one H1 header per article? I know it can be unwieldy, but you could build into the programing a character limitation. H1 may well be weighed...
