Merrily Kelley (Street Articles Author)

I am currently a freelance writer and student (doing my Master's in Education at Ashford University) I am the owner of Kelley's Emporium that has a subsidiary of Meranda2100's web design but as of yet the company is still in beginning stages.I am going to continue with my Doctorate when I finish my Master's. I hope to someday teach at an online University and be a pro at internet marketing.

My Bachelor's Degree is in English (CSU Stanislaus 2001) has fostered a love of reading and fine-honed my writing skills. I will never stop writing. I love to blog, and read other blogs, articles and books. I especially like to learn how to improve myself, my sleep, my health, my memory, mental health, and my life. I also like to write about self-improvement topics.

I love computers, music of all kinds, movies and great TV. I also love animals (especially dogs) the great outdoors. I enjoy taking photographs, painting landscapes, looking at fine art (Monet is one of my favorites).

I look forward to reading many articles and welcome any suggestions, comments or tips you can give on my writing! Happy Writing to all!
