Do you have a website promoting you as a writer? If so, please share.
I have several pages on my web site (www.howard-marketing.com) which promotes our writing and copy editing services.
If you want to have a look, a couple of these pages are:

Why do you ask?
Hi Steven. I'm in the process of building my own writers website. Wondering if it's worth it. Thanks for responding. I'll check out your sites.
As you think through your forthcoming website Suzie, be sure to PREPLAN your SEO strategy. This is a mistake many small businesses and freelancers make. Having a website is one thing, but driving traffic to it is a different matter (and strategy).
Yes, a personal portfolio is essential for those who work as freelance writers or as freelancers in general. It is a professional way to develop your image and highlight/link to your works all in one place for potential clients. I've written hubs on how and why they are important because I am very passionate about helping genuine writers promote themselves. There are so many sites out there that try to exploit newer writers for slave wages etc. and when you have your own portfolio it gives you an edge in finding legit clients instead of working for scraps at content mills etc.

Really? I guess they'll let me know. I thought it would be great to help each other out in this way.
We're not "allowed to advertise" according to HP. But, I wouldn't consider this Q&A as advertising. The answers fit the question as "examples" and not advertisement.
Oh well we will find out I suppose.
Started a new site: http:infantstotoddlers.com
I don't right now because 1) I'm not actively looking for more of other people's projects and/or already know where to get them, and 2) I've recently begun (finally) to really focus on my own projects (none of which are quite yet at the stage of calling for that kind of site). I do have a basic site set up for the time when those projects do reach that stage. There's little but contact info on it for now, though.
On the other hand, I have "a zillion" sites/blogs that are set up and devoted to my free-time writing. They aren't to promote either me or my writing, however. They're instead more a matter of organizing existing free-time writing in a way a) makes sense for possible future development, b) incorporates my "agenda as a person" and "agendas as a free-time writer" while attempting to explain to anyone who runs into any of it "what the heck is this mess of miscellaneous writing and other material", and c) aims to make some sense of my purpose and reason for spending my non-"real-work"-hours writing material that is entirely unrelated to writing I do for other people
The stuff I do in my free-time is a weird kind of stuff because a) it's not "just a hobby"; I do write "for money", b) I most often write with the idea of somehow "making (the proverbial) difference in the world", c) I write some things for my own selfish purposes, and d) I write SOME things for personal reasons created within a seriously messed up divorce case to the point where getting some facts "out in public" makes some sense to me. Because of that varied mix of purposes for my online writing, and because I think it's important to let anyone who sees it know where it's coming from; I have those sites that both show actual writing and also attempt to explain any purposes for/context within which it has been done.
It would be a lot less complicated, challenging and generally "weird" to just slap up a professional freelance writing site in the aims of finding new for whom to write; but my online stuff is neither part of my professional endeavors nor "just a hobby without regard for income and/or purpose" either. Basically, I'm muddling with the long-term aim of having some of those non-professional efforts fall into place (or not) under one umbrella of "good use of free time by someone who also happens to write professionally as well".
When the back-burner projects are done I'll promote them for what I think they offer - not me as yet one more freelance writer among millions.
I have a dozen websites promoting my writing.
All of them can be found on the websites page of,
I love to write on a wide variety of subjects, from science to spirituality, and from politics to art.
I have a wordpress blog/website, where I've posted info on all my books and stories, published and self-published. Thanks for doing this, and good luck with your writers website - let us know how it goes!
I have a few websites, but only one is totally dedicated to my writing. I recently published my first book, so I felt the need to have my media kit attached to it for book distributors, libraries, media folks, etc. I also have my hub pages attached to it so that they can see my writing style.
When I first created my "writers" website, I did a lot of research on how to best promote it. One of the top things is having videos... something I still have yet to find time for but plan on doing in the future. Another tip included keeping your site clean looking and simple (not too much information). You will also want to make sure it is optimized well so that you are found easily. Currently, my website is within the top 1 percent within the U.S.
One of my greatest book buyers is the public library system nationwide. I had never planned to promote to them as I had read that it's very difficult for first time writers to get into libraries. However, I do believe my website helped me out with them incredibly. You can take a look at my website below for one of your examples:

Thanks for asking!

I wanted to know of a place where I could find clients who needed websites created from scratch. All the freelance sites just have jobs for tweaking current websites. I'm a professional when it comes to creating sites from scratch. I'm creating a sample now for any of you to check out and once its...
