Hello, wonderful She Writers!


I want to thank you for all you've done to make She Writes the strong, supportive community that it is. As She Writes Social Community Manager this past year, I've enjoyed getting to know many of you, reading your engaging posts, brainstorming and discussing with you in groups, and watching your success while learning from our webinars and working with our expert consultants.  She Writes is a truly inspiring place and you make it that way!


Why am I waxing so sappy, you ask? I'm feeling appreciative because today is my last day wearing the Social Community Manager hat. Since last winter, She Writes has been run by 1.5 women -- Founder, Kamy Wicoff, and myself part-time. To continue to make She Writes sustainable, we're paring down to 1 (yikes!), so please be patient in the coming weeks as Kamy fields, well, everything. (Talk about a one-woman show!)


But strike the doom and gloom -- the good news is that I'm actually not going too far! I will be staying on as a She Writes Web and Social Media Consultant in line with my own freelance consulting, and I look forward to working with you individually on websites, social media strategy, media production, or music that you (or anyone you know) ever may need.


I'm thrilled to have She Writers as such inspiring colleagues, and my "door" is always open to you. You can contact me anytime through my She Writes profile, and I'd love to connect in cyberspace on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn.


Until then, a sort of au revoir,



Let's be friends
