    Travel related topics - I have been writing city descriptions for the past two years for several websites.

    Casino related articles- this is my newest enterprise. I have been hired by a Casino website and I´m working with them on reagular basis writing casino descriptions.

    Books and literature- I am simply and plainly a literature fanatic :)

    Well, I have been writing on several topics for the last five years, so the list is going to be long. :)

    Health and Wellness
    Mood Disorders
    Disease and Cures
    Alternative Medicine
    Insurance
    Lending
    Travel
    Real Estate
    Astrology
    Paranormal
    Ufo's
    History
    Strange Occurrences
    Education
    Weight loss
    Pregnancy
    Children
    Dating
    Wedding
    Honeymoons
    Gardening
    Animals
    Pet Care
    Recipes

    I enjoy researching and writing on new and different topics. It is very hard to say which one is really my best. However, there are many more subjects I have probably left out. I enjoy research, so the topic is not as important to me as writing articles about what I have learned.

    I wouldn't consider myself a travel writer just yet - but I am working on it.

    Blogging regularly means I can learn from the professional travel writers, and I love writing about my travel plans, ideas and experiences.

    While I write in many fields, you asked for the best, so here is mine.

    Casino Related (reviews, how-to, deep understand of issues and so forth)

    I have lived in Las Vegas for 26 years. I was a professional handicapper and gambler for years. I was a casino deal and industry person. I was a gambling instructor and also helped people learn how to deal various games. Former systems creator, tester and even helped test games in casinos here.

    I tend to write better the more I get paid.

    I learned several years ago that specializing in a single topic or even a set of topics isn't a viable way to make a living as a freelance writer, so I learned to write copy ... any copy, and to research quickly any subject.

    There are topics I enjoy, but I don't believe I write them better than the topics I don't enjoy.

    Working as a Google Researcher for the last 5 years I've learned how to find just about anything on the Internet, or in a library, but I also discovered that writing Internet copy has very little to do with subject matter and a great deal to do with human relations.

    Pop culture and entertainment topics in general.

    Unlike many people here, however, I hate writing. It's horrible tedious and headache-inducing.

    My guess is it's the only thing Heinlein99 can do to survive. Most people get stuck doing something they hate, because they have few options. Sometimes the only thing that works for you is what you hate the most.

    Who knows.

    Writing makes the world go around. :D

    Perhaps you are correct, market. I on the other hand would do everything in my power not to become stuck in a job I despise... I've been there, done that. Of course, I've never been in a situation where I didn't have any other options so who knows?!

    I hear you. I stopped doing things I hate when I was a very young adult—always learning and opening doors. Never know when you will get bored of something.

    BTW, your blog says, "More importantly, you may want to consider revising and editing after a day or so has gone by, so you can look at the manuscript with fresh eyes."

    You should bold that and put it in flashing neon. I just finished a project that was a document for a medical company. Millions are being spent on the document for worldwide distribution. The document was revised dozens of times over the past 12 months. What sounds great one day can sound poor the next. The more important the work, the more one needs to spend extra time massaging it.

    Haha, I agree. I won't pretend I haven't been guilty of lazy editing in the past, but since then I have continously strived to revise, edit and revise again if necessary. It's my job after all to show a client what I can do, and turning in a poorly drafted article doesn't speak well of my talent. Besides which, after working on a tedious piece for several hours, it's a refreshing break to put it aside and return to it the next day.

    I like to think I can write for any market, but my particular expertise is:

    Online Marketing
    SEO
    Marketing
    Small business
    Advertising
    Web Design

    But I have written excellent articles on Cancer and many other sectors.
