I’ve been writing for a site called The Sweethome. It’s all about good stuff you should get for the home. I was one of the writers hired for launch, and I’m really proud of the work I’ve got up there. I’ve completed two guides so far: The Best Salt for the Home Kitchen and The Best Toaster Oven. They’re both super long reads with details about the research and testing process.
I really love the editorial process. The editor-in-chief is Brian Lam; he used to run Gizmodo. He also helms a gadget site, The Wirecutter, which is now the first (and sometimes only) place I look when I need to buy electronics.
As a writer, I really value the editorial process. It takes time for us to come to a conclusion, with rigorous back and forth with the editors. Because I know what the other writers have to go through in order to pick a winner, I know I can trust their picks. I also learn so much in the process of researching and calling experts. It’s fun to dive deep.
I’m working on a few more doozies that should be coming out soon. The next one has been in the works for several months. Stay tuned!
