Thoughts from the Abyss

About

jam-about-pic

Hi there, and welcome to my blog. If you’ve come here looking for someone to help you on your content project, for a competent writer with a decent sample size, a flexible schedule, open and clear communication and expertise in one of half a dozen fields, including digital marketing, mental health, fitness, nutrition and pain management — then you’ve come to the right place.

What’s this website for?

This isn’t just a portfolio page, though, or a showcase of the writing skills I’ve honed over the course of half a decade writing professionally. This is also a blog about me. And in this blog, I log some of my errant thoughts, my personal progress on important parts of my life, and interests I have here and there. Stay a while if you so please, or head on down to my contact section to get straight to the point and get in touch.

The blog, in general, began as an online log of all things relevant to its purpose — be that a personal journey, or a public project, or a business’ own line between its thoughts and its clients. I specialize in creating content for sites like this, in the form of long-form articles and bite-sized pieces meant to educate people, entice them into the conversation, or suggest a thought.

Who am I?

Alright, well, long story short: born in Germany, I came to the Philippines at a young age with two entrepreneurial parents who left everything behind to start a new life in a place with more opportunity. They failed more times than I could count and succeeded enough to keep going strong, and that’s the tenacity and grit I was taught to grow up with. I’m not sure how tenacious I ended up being, but I did learn to be flexible.

I jumped into the world of freelance writing and slowly made my way up the ladder, making peanuts for clicks and proof-reading business tweets to formulating press releases, articles and blog pages for top businesses.

Writing is who I am — I’ve been writing every day for years, and it comes to me as naturally as breathing or thinking. To boot, I’m quick on my feet.

Born and raised in…

I’m German by blood, but I don’t have a concrete cultural association. My early years were spent in the cold, wintry neighborhoods of Western Europe, with all the joys of a white Christmas, an authentic fireplace, holiday dinners with a large family, and a grade school close enough to walk to and from every single day. My mother took me and a backpack through North […]

Recommendations

People have had nice things to say about my writing. Here are some of these things.   Fiverr “Jam is the best! This is my second press release from him and it’s just great! Probably my favorite writer on Fiverr right now.”   “He totally took the information provided and said exactly what I wanted to say! I highly recommend this gig! 5 stars from […]

Portfolio

Much of the content I’ve written was sold to companies specifically looking for ghost-written native advertising content to post as blog posts on other sites. As per the nature of ghost-writing, I can’t disclose that content — but I can disclose my own published content. Here is a very small sample of some of this content.   These examples notwithstanding, I’ve been writing content on […]

Skills and Services

My primary services revolve around content, and that’s what I’m good at. I love writing — from content writing to short stories — and I love crafting ways to convey and explain, and to excite and entice. I go about my writing process in a very simple and extremely effective manner: STEP ONE: RESEARCH. Research is vital to any kind of content writing. What have […]

Training Without a Gym – The Legs

When it comes to training the legs, there’s an almost infamous air of hesitation. Leg day, as it’s called, is hard. Notoriously hard. Squats are the best way to train your legs, and if you’re doing the right — with flat soles, heels digging into the ground, and a whole bunch of weight on your shoulders — they can easily force your entire body to […]

Training Without a Gym – The Core

If rows and push-ups aren’t enough to satisfy your need for an iron core, or if your name is Mr. Lee or Mr. Balboa and you want a torso made of rough iron rather than mushy muscle, then you need to make sure the core is a heavy focus in your training program. In general movement, the core is indeed incredibly important. Aside from being […]
