Melissa Behrend

I'm a writer, editor, proofreader, and creative thinker. I'm also a voracious reader--which is what got me started on my path to writing and editing. 
I design excellent content for excellent clients.


I am a ghostwriter, in-app writer, UX writer, SEO content writer, feature article writer, e-book writer, curriculum writer, microcopy writer, B2B and B2C content creator, blogger...


I am Google AdWords certified, too. 

I love helping clients get their messages across: You tell me what you want to say, and we will say it in the best way, or ways, possible.

I am well-versed in many areas and am not afraid to do research; as an English major and former English teacher, research is second nature to me.
My areas of expertise are IT (anything tech, Internet of Things, UX), health, fitness (especially yoga), education and pets (I love my dogs!).

I have thousands of SEO client pieces that I can share with you.

Prosecco Prices on the Rise

The climate is taking its toll on wine prices. Wine Enthusiast recently talked to a number of prosecco wine producers who say they are planning to increase prices as much as 15% next year, noting Italy’s poor harvest this year is to blame. The Guardian says that price increase could be as much as 30%, depending on what share of the costs retailers plan to pass on to shoppers. So why the steep price hike? It’s the weather. Frost ravaged the prosecco harvest last year so production will suffer an

The last few weeks of the year are the perfect time to look back and reflect on our most memorable work, so we asked a few bloggers to tell us about one blog post they put together in 2015 that they especially liked. Here are their responses.
