You probably know me or someone like me. Married, suburban stepmom, drives a fuel-efficient car, claims to be pro-environment while she throws the pop can in the garbage.
It's the 21st century and social networking, blogs and wiki's have turned every day people like me into media pop stars. Don't get me wrong, I'm not doing this for notoriety or to land a spot on Bill Maher as the picture of the 21st middle-American mom. Although if you're reading this Bill, I love your show.
If anything comes of this blog I would hope it might be a promotion or maybe a consulting engagement. The company I work for is heavy into transforming its print models into online gold.
Maybe its my youth or my online media connections; maybe it has to do with the fact that I've helped a few friends, including my husband, with search engine optimization and search engine marketing. Whatever the case, I love the online form of media. It's quick, it's easy to hop from page to page and there's a logic to it.
My current job as a print managing editor hasn't opened up a lot of opportunities for me yet to take advantage of my online gifts, so I'm going to take matters into my own hands.
So, my experiment begins.
