Doug Coutts has been freelancing as a writer for many years, and has been paid for some of them.
He is a published author – one of his books (co-authored admittedly) has been described as “very wordy” and is heavier than the LOTR trilogy but will never be made into 25 four-hour-long films.
He has written for television, radio and magazines, as well as corporate events. None of these has been as much fun, and more rewarding, than blogging. All right, most of it has. And it’s paid better too.
