I’ve been keeping a secret for some time now and I guess it is finally time to let it all hang out. I have been invited to be a Blogger At Large for the 53rd GRAMMY Awards! You may remember that I was a GRAMMY Community Blogger At Large earlier this year for the 52nd […]


Just thought I would post my presentation deck from my Bare Bones Blogging session from today’s WordCampNYC. Keep in mind this presentation was intended for beginning bloggers, those new to WordPress or those looking to make the leap from blogging to blogging. There are some links in there I think people may want […]

Throwback Style

July 8, 2010

in Personal

I’ve been going down Internets Memory Lane. Reading my old blog entries from 2003. I miss my old blog. I miss my old blogging style. This here juke joint is weaksauce. Writing in a voice that’s a very sterile version of who I once was online. Writing about some things that have no immediate interest […]


So, dooce (aka Heather Armstrong) told all her haters they can suck it. I guess the haters got a big dose of Haterade this week because Heather was invited to go to the White House for the Workplace Flexibility forum. Me? I thought it was pretty cool that she was invited (i.e. the White House’s […]


I’ve been extra quiet lately, not because I don’t have much to say but because my blog was driving me NUTS for the past 3 months. How Movable Type 5 Made My Blogging Life Miserable I was previously on Movable Type 5, but ever since the upgrade, the system was more taxing than it needed […]

Last Monday I had the honor of sitting on a panel for the Introduction to Online Communities class for the Online Communities program at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. That’s a mouthful. If you’re paying close attention, this is the program where I earned my master’s degree (I was in the 2007 […]


The time has finally come–GRAMMY festivities are in full swing for me and my fellow Community Blogging comrades. My schedule is about to get pretty crazy between now and Sunday night. I just wanted to invite you all to follow me on Twitter as I cover some GRAMMY events (official and unofficial) this weekend. Some […]


I am too busy to keep up with myself, but I thought I would drop a line to tell you all about an exciting opportunity that I have been keeping under wraps: I am a Community Blogger for the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards! For the last few months (while in LA) I have been […]

Does it influence you?Rhimes: I think for a long time we’d really try to stay here in the bubble. … It’s only really lately and with the […]

I’ve been writing for the web as a blogger since before it was called blogging, and yet….I don’t blog regularly. In fact, I stopped blogging regularly before blogging was the new black.  I had a long post written about my thoughts on blogging, and how I came to be the way I am. But then […]


Stop The Startup Madness

November 13, 2009

in #Tech,Startups

It’s not often I read anything said by Robert Scoble and agree with everything he has said 100%. I find I disagree with him more often than not, but usually that’s somewhere in the Twittersphere or Friendfeed-ersphere. Either way, he’s spot on with his post, The worst things startups do. If you don’t know who […]
