My focus is on marketing automation and email marketing. I typically am knee-deep in data and triggers rather than copy. But I have been trying to focus on improving my copy skills recently. My goal is not to be a copywriter but rather to provide more value by having that skill.

Over the past year (year 4/5 for me) I wrote tons of scripts for brands (top agency work) that never ended getting bought by the client.

Is it weird or in good practice to have an area in my site for these scripts?
