I spent nearly 20 years as a professional daily newspaper journalist before the Great Newspaper Culling of 2008.
Overnight, I made the transformation from old media to new. I've been featured in articles on The New York Times, Forbes and PRNewswire. I've been published on The Next Web, VentureBeat, Slashdot's Business Intelligence and Spin Sucks.
I've also been a guest or guest host on several well-known podcasts, including Pulse on Marketing, The Drill Down, Blendover, The Urly Show, Social Blade and Beer Diplomacy.
An inaugural inductee of the New Jersey Social Media Hall of Fame, I've spoken at many conferences and events, including SXSW Interactive, CROWDFUNDx, Marketing Profs B2B, Columbia University's Social Media Weekend, SMX, Social Media Week, Internet Week, ROFLCon and Affiliate Summit East.
Not least, I am married to the most supportive husband in the world and have two young sons.
Oh, and I'm also known as the Bacon Queen, running the only bacon news aggregator on the Internet. Take that, Matt Drudge.
Specialties: Social media, social networking, viral marketing, journalism, blogging, basic HTML/CSS/web design. Oh, yeah — also writing and editing.
