Hey there, my name’s Garrett Mickley and I’m a freelance content writer with a focus on technology. I’m working towards the massive goal of donating $1 Billion to causes I believe in over the course of my lifetime. I’d also like to have the financial freedom to not just donate money, but physically volunteer whenever and wherever I’m needed. Right now, I’m working to get there by writing.

I have a passion for writing and a passion for technology, and I love to write about anything technology based, from chatbots, to sustainable farming technology, to programming in general.

I discovered I had a love for reading and writing somewhere around third grade. In college, I rediscovered that love when my first writing professor told me I “have a voice,” and “should seriously consider pursuing a career in writing.”

In 2008, I began learning about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and internet marketing, where I honed my skills in writing content that brought traffic in to websites.

In 2014, I started studying copywriting so I could turn that traffic into conversions.

I’ve also been published in magazines, as well as on Bankrate.com subsidiary company sites.

“I always knew I wanted Garrett to write for my site, it was just a matter of finding the right project. Bringing a writer you hadn’t worked with before onto your site is always a risk, so it’s important to vet them and think about where their voice will fit on your site. Garrett was a consummate professional. He delivered his copy on time, it was well-written, accurate and polished, and he made any edits we asked for quickly and efficiently. It’s always a pleasure to work with writers who listen to feedback and use it to produce a better product.

It helped us launch flagship content for our website that ended up being a success, in part because of Garrett’s efforts. I really liked the research that Garrett did on the subjects we asked him to write about. Because he had done his homework, he was able to write with authority.

We got really good traffic on the pieces Garrett worked on, and the project ended up being a showcase for a redesign that was central to our overall plan for the site. I would definitely recommend Garrett’s services. Garrett’s ability to quickly understand and take ownership of an assignment means you get quality work without the hassle of having to check in constantly, or worse, deal with a blown deadline. Also a plus: Garrett is really skilled at promoting his work on social media and through careful search engine optimization.

I’d say that Garrett is a creative, experienced writer with a can-do attitude who will take a writing assignment from inception to completion with a minimum amount of hassle on your part. He’s always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get the copy you need.” – Claes Bell, Bankrate.com
