I am a market editor, which is not the same as being in marketing (some people mix these up), though many skills overlap. It means I have a specific area of coverage that is my expertise. The bulk of my work has revolved around home decor products, accessories, furnishings, gifts, and decoration & design, which are the areas I'm most passionate about. In the past, I have also written travel and relationship stories.
I am available for freelance projects on a national and local (Syracuse, NY) level.
Please note, I am located in Syracuse, NY, but I have successfully produced market pages for a major national (New York, NY-based) magazine via telecommuting.

I've always wanted to be a spy or an investigator. And in a way, I am. But if I weren't doing this, I'd like to solve crimes.
I dance nearly everywhere I go.
Also, because it often confuses people: My full, legal, and much misspelled last name is Bleier Long (Bleier: two Es, one I, rhymes with flier). It is not Long, or even Bieber Long, as I once received on a Fashion Week invitation that I definitely saved and immediately shared on Twitter. (Addressing me correctly goes a long way!)
I'm a busybody (certified Miss Busybody 1986, Magic Kingdom nursery school), so I like to know about everything: If you've got something going on, let me know!
