New Role In Life: Editor-in-Chief of a Tech Blog Called Bub.blicio.us
Many of you know that for the past couple of years, I’ve been posting a lot of my photos from tech events onto Flickr and occasionally doing some writing on this social tech blog called Bub.blicio.us. It’s been a great time for me especially since I’d love to provide more of an outlet for the events that I really enjoyed going to and being invited to attend–thank you for all the invite and care. I never thought it would be appropriate to mix my marketing insights with tech party photos here–apples and oranges, you might say.
One of the big things I love about being here in the Silicon Valley is the opportunity I have to learn about amazing tech products and be aware of the news surrounding it. Sure, you’ll get hit with the news via Twitter pretty quickly, but things just kind of move a bit faster outside of the Twitterverse and the online ecosystem. And I’d love to write about startups and emerging technology more and more, but never really had the major space to compose my message–until now.
Some of you already know (or at least guessed it by now), but a month or so ago, I was approached by Brian Solis (@briansolis) to take over the Bub.blicio.us blog and run it as the Editor-in-Chief. I have since accepted it and helped move it forward. Along with help from Krystyl Baldwin (@krystyl), Bub.blicio.us is going to usher in a fresh direction as being a blog dedicated to parties, tech, and the mysterious “bubble” –we’re going to keep writing about parties, conferences, events, tweetups, and whatever social gatherings you got because we think that the tech industry is alive and kicking. But we’re also going to be writing about technology, startups, and other companies that are living this “Bubblicious” lifestyle. If you got a great product and you think that it’s going to be a rockstar in the tech scene, then Bub.blicio.us wants to know all about it.
And no, I have not left my full-time job with my current employer, Kane & Finkel Healthcare Communications. It’s too good of an opportunity to pass up so I’m going to be balancing writing posts every day (if I can manage) versus my very demanding and interesting job. But I’m always looking for great people to help contribute to the site–if you got some interesting posts and ideas you’d like to share on Bub.blicio.us, please feel free to reach out, either in the comments or by using this comment form and I’ll get back to you right away!
Lots of great things are in the works and I’m really stoked about all that has happened. Make sure you check out the posts on Bub.blicio.us, add it to your RSS feed, and follow @bubblicious on Twitter–I love getting new followers! Oh, you got something you want me to take a look at, I’m open to that as well. Just drop me a line.
