I'd argue that you have demonstrated skills in both fields. 0 agree Reply I think you write wonderfully, but why not embrace both? Web entrepreneurs need to demonstrate good writing, too! 0 agree Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply No-drama comment policy Part of what makes the Offbeat Empire different is our commitment to civil, constructive commenting.
