Paul Suggett

Experienced journalist, copywriter, and blogger (pen name - Paul Michael)

United States of America

I've been writing professionally for over 20 years, with thousands of articles to show for it. As an advertising copywriter, I write on a wide variety of topics, in a way that both informs and entertains.
My articles have appeared in magazines including Reader's Digest and Money, featured on major sites like Time, Business Insider, and LifeHacker, and have even been picked up by TV and radio.

For online content I write with an SEO sensibility, knowing how to get to the front page of the internet without sacrificing the readability or essence of the article.
My work has gone viral many times over, and I can write in multiple styles, from humorous and laid-back, to serious financial advice and hard-hitting news.
Let me help you reach more people than you ever thought possible.
