Who I Am

Welcome to mariawriter.com. I’m Maria. I'm Irish, but I left Ireland 23 years ago. I now live in Lucknow, India, with my masala family.  That means a family with a subcontinental and western mix.  When I'm in India, I miss Ireland. When I'm in Ireland, I miss India. I'm equally happy in both countries, so it's probably a good thing that I also love travelling.

What I Do

I'm an Internet content writer, passionate about writing and blogging. I've been published as a fiction writer, in print and digital media.  I had stories in Ireland's Own in Ireland and Woman's Era in India. I even have a Goodreads page, because of the two digital anthologies which have featured my short stories. I also ghostwrite Internet content. And I write reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, writing.ie and Flipkart.

As the world evolves and changes daily with the many new innovations coming about, one thing is perfectly clear. For many of us, the ‘job for life’ is gone.

Instead of being the ‘girl Friday’ who makes it all happen, your secretary is likely to be a businesswoman who is engaged to perform several tasks for you under contract. So the business person doesn’t have to take on a full-time employee and pay them a living wage or salary. They simply outsource tasks and pay accordingly. The Virtual Assistant (VA) is free to do the same work for other business people. She simply has to organise her time in order to accommodate tasks for various clients.

Evolving Trends Of The Internet

The Evolving Trend of Internet Revolution
Just over two decades ago, who could have imagined how life would have turned around in 2017? Who’d have thought that today, it would be possible to send emails around the globe in an instant? Or that it would be possible for a businessman in London to call a meeting of several associates – one in Hong Kong, one in Sydney and one in New York? And that each one could speak to another as clearly as if they were all in the same room? Did we ever imagine that it would be possible for friends living on opposite sides of the planet to speak every day at minimal cost? And that people who’ve never met could befriend each other?
Internet History – Facts Versus Fantasy
The World Wide Web as we know it was born on the 6th August 1991. It’s difficult to remember how things were before.  As a kid, I imagined how the future would be. I’d visions of being woken in the morning by robots bringing tea and eating meals composed of vitamin pills. I imagined communi…
