Hi! We are both part-time freelance workers who bring considerable skills and experience to all our endeavors. We have lived in big cities, small towns and rural areas in the US and abroad. Our references will provide confirmation of our reliability and expertise.
As animal lovers, we still miss our golden retriever, Buddy, after 10 years. Being on the road doesn't allow us to have pets, so we enjoy those of others. We have cared for dogs, cats, goats, chickens, roosters and even had a visiting pig once. We are open to learning new things and about different animals.
Our business and travel sites represent our careers; and our skill sets include editing and writing, advanced computer skills, blog and work, as well as business development and management.
Being longtime homeowners has given us core maintenance and landscaping skills. We even spent a summer as caretakers at a summer camp in Vermont doing handyman, kitchen, mowing and weed whacking, gardening, splitting wood, driving and administrative work, demonstrating our flexibility.
Betsy has spent most of her career as a writer/editor and more recently as a publisher. Mark works in the technology field with enterprise-class storage systems. In 2006 he started his company, Datawise Storage.
For fun you might enjoy reading about our American adventure in which our entire family traveled the U.S for almost a year: Blondins Assignment America.
How do you know you can trust us? We have shared our background and our current activities and have great personal references. We've enjoyed several successful house and pet sits and we are confident we can navigate any situation gracefully.
Betsy & Mark Blondin
