Hi, I'm Rohan, a Freelance Writer, Digital Nomad, and Travel Blogger with a WordPress site called 50firststeps.com. I'm an extremely skilled writer and editor with a degree in English Literature. I specialize in writing Travel Articles, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Articles, Blog Posts, Press Release, Newsletters, Website Content, etc. I'm also highly adept at Wordpress and SEO practices. As far as editing is concerned, I've worked as a commissioning editor for reputed publishing houses, and as such I'm a trained veteran of the editing industry. I've had various articles, both fiction and non fiction, published in reputed journals, newspapers and online publications. I also have experience working in Magazines, Newspapers, and Corporate organizations, all of which has given me a very rounded and versatile idea of creating content specifically catered to shifting and varying needs.
