I write for some of the most popular websites on the planet. Here’s what they have to say about my work:

  • What separates Randy from most is his strength of character, consistent work ethic, wide skill set, and obvious love for writing. It is rare to work with someone that consistently delivers valuable content on various topics without skipping a beat. I’m pretty sure he has figured out a way to create content in his sleep. How else could he deliver so much high quality content every single week? The truth is he would be a linchpin for any content team and if you get the chance to hire him as a writer in any capacity, you won’t be disappointed.


  • Not only is Randy a great writer, he's an excellent communicator as well. Working with him is effortless! He writes great posts, adapts to different post formats easily, and makes sure the work gets done on time. This, in addition to his profound knowledge of WordPress makes him a priceless writer you'll love working with!


  • Randy contributed to our blog from 2016-2022. During that time his performance was consistently excellent. He always went out of his way to communicate with me and our other editors to make sure he was on task and understanding the articles assigned to him. Many of his articles have gone on to rack up hundreds of thousands of views for our website. Additionally, his work ethic and capacity are among the best we've ever had on the team. I highly recommend Randy for work on any publication or on any team in which his services are needed.


  • Randy was fantastic to work with! He delivered exactly what we were looking for, and his attention to detail and quality was obvious throughout the project. We'll definitely turn to him again for top-notch content from a very knowledgeable source.


  • Randy is kind and capable, two things I've learned not to take for granted. He was the first person I thought of when I had a tight deadline for a Bible Study Magazine article on technology and Bible study.


  • Randy is one of my favorite writers. He presents content in an enjoyable, easy to read format. The thing that really makes him stand out to me, though, is that you realize that Randy not only writes well, he goes above and beyond the “industry standard” to thoroughly research the topic or product of which he is blogging about. He becomes a reliable resource on what he is writing about.

    For example, Randy wrote a product review for one of Superfly’s plugins. He not only described what the plugin does, but came up with original and crazy good examples of how to actually use the plugin. Due to that, our sales for that product for that month were up somewhere between 350 to 400 percent. It was amazing.

    I have never heard anything negative about Randy’s blogs. He comes highly recommended by anyone and everyone who has worked with him.

  • I have always believed in the power of quality content and the importance of choosing the right content writer. Randy fit both of those needs and has played a key role in the development of our blog. I would not hesitate to recommend him, and only wish there were more writers like him. A few traits and qualities Randy has displayed are reliability, excellent communication, and willingness to learn about the subject he is writing on. It has been a pleasure working with Randy, and I'm proud to have him with us.


  • Randy is our go-to review writer along with general WordPress and web related content- I have not found better!


  • I love Randy’s work. He puts a lot of research and detail into each article. I really appreciate his communication regarding expectations, schedules, word counts, and topics he intends to cover. With many of the bloggers on my team, we provide a list of suggested topics but I have to come to trust Randy to choose his own topics and they are always spot on. We are grateful to have Randy on our team.


  • Randy is a reliable and professional writer who provides us with well-researched articles. He is proactive and has an excellent work ethic which makes it easy to depend on him for important tasks.
