I have a bachelor's degree in creative writing with a minor in English. The intent was to refine my skills to write novels, though all I really wrote in college was short stories (which to this day I hate writing). There was some training with professional writing, yet for some reason those classes focused more on print design software (like adobe indesign) rather than the content of each article. So, for that reason, I had a lot to learn when I started writing for the internet. My biggest struggle is that I was trained to be a writer, but success on the internet is less about writing skill and more about self advertising. The phrase 'search engine optimization' still makes me shudder.
