Just wondering how many of the writers and freelancers here have professional websites specifically showcasing their clips and bio (not personal blogs). If so, let's see 'em!

Also, what are your thoughts on using your personal email address for sending queries? Should I get a separate email address for that?

Lol...
Me again
I do have a professional website (see my siggy). Most editors seems to prefer a link to an attachment for stories and I find they often read through more stories than the one or two I sent. When I first started the page was just a bio and a couple of samples - then I expanded to categories. Every writer I know has one - some are great.

The advice I was given was to keep in mind what you are trying to do and make your website simple and streamlined. I'm planning an update - but have been too busy lately

I also have a separate work email. After a few months I was starting to end up on several PR lists and so I tend to get A LOT of mail these days. Also, I travel for work so needed web access. Having a professional sounding email address is also important.

I have a professional website (hosted on its own domain) and an email address @ that domain.

I am in the process of setting up a website. I also have a separate e-mail address just for work. I am not sure if we can actually put our webaddresses up here.

I have one in progress. Check out my siggy "I'm a writer".

I do have a different email for work vs. personal. It keeps me organized!

Thanks for sharing ladies!
