Writing

Assorted samples plucked from literally thousands of pieces written and published from over the years, many pulled from the Wayback Machine, since the original sites are no longer online. That means they may not always display properly, so bear with me.

Due to client confidentiality I generally can’t link to the corporate/business blogs I write. If you are a prospective employer in need of samples of corporate blogging, SEO writing, and other business writing, please contact me or drop me a note at ericsanjuan@gmail.com. And obviously, the pieces on the front page of this site are written by me unless listed in the “contributed post” category, as are the entries in my growing list of books.

Most of this content is written on behalf of clients. The work is intended to be coming from them, not me.
