Hey, Edit This: Happy Anniversary!

Updated: Jul 18, 2019

As I hopped into bed the other night after a day of church and hanging out with family, my wife leaned over, kissed me on the cheek, and said, "Hey! Happy Anniversary!"

Like most guys, I hesitated for just a second to internally think this potentially awkward situation through. Wait? Did I forget our anniversary? No! That was earlier in March. Whew! But if that's the case, what anniversary is she talking about?

"What anniversary, honey?" I finally said out loud.

"For Edit This®," she said with a surprised look on her face. "It's been four years."

She was right. Apparently, I had mentioned the upcoming anniversary of my writing and editing company a day or two earlier, but naturally, I forgot when the day came. And who could blame me? It fell on April 1, the same day as Easter and April Fools' Day.

"Oh yeah," I said. "Thanks! It's been a fun ride so far."

I've been in the writing and editing industry for a little more than 20 years, but when I went off on my own four years ago (April 1, 2014), Edit This was a tiny, niche thing. I wanted it to take off, but I also had no idea if it would catch on. Well, through the grace of God, I'm happy to say my dream company has grown beyond my wildest dreams – and it's only been four years!!

What is Edit This?

For those of you who are new to this blog and our website, Edit This is a writing and editing services company in Denton, TX. I help small-business owners find the right words to communicate with their customers, and I do so in a variety of ways, including:

* Blogs

* Website content & copywriting

* Press Releases

* Newsletters

* Freelance Writing

* Ghostwriting

I talk a lot about the importance of giving your business a clear and authentic voice, and everyone I've met sees the value in that. The only problem is most business owners either love to write but don't have the time, or they are not confident in their writing and editing abilities. They need help, and that is where I swoop in!

A dream job for years to come

When I look back on these past four years, I can say I've loved every bit of this journey. Thank you for the love and support. I can't wait to see what the future brings!

If you have a writing or editing project you've meant to start on or be more consistent with – whether it's business or personal related – give Edit This a call! With a little brainstorming, there's no telling what we can accomplish together.
