Yes, that's me using the word "totally" on

Hmm. Now if only I had only used the words "dude" and "awesome", the quotes from me in this article would have hit the Silicon Valley trifecta of over-used words :)

Actually, I'm pretty sure I did use the word "awesome" at least once, so I'm grateful that columnist Romy Ribitzsky spared me.

The article gives advice to budding entrepreneurs...which honestly I had never planned to be. But sometimes you get overtaken by what it turns out you love to do. And that's the best piece of advice I personally give in the article: Better make sure you start a company that does something you love...because it will consumer your life. Uh huh. Sounds totally right.

Last day for earlybird pricing for Newcomm Forum 2010 | Newcomm Forum 2010

Today is the last day to get earlybird pricing for Newcomm Forum 2010, this April in San Mateo. And if you use the code NCF100 you get an extra discount on top of earlybird. NewComm has been around since fact it's where I met Jory Des Jardins!

This year I'm speaking on new media business model in a session entitled "Cutting Out the Media Middle Man: Next Year's Media Model Today". I'm really excited to talk about how BlogHer gets community journalism initiatives, like the Women of Haiti or our health care reform series, paid for. And also about how social media presents the same opportunities to brands, non-profits, organizations of any kind really.

Will I see you there?

Me, on the SocialMediopolis BlogTalkRadio show

This morning I was on the SocialMediopolis BlogTalkRadio show. SocialMediopolis is a pretty huge community of social media marketing folks who confab on LinkedIn (and obviously BlogTalkRadio). Check it out:

Me on SocialMediopolis

I share some of BlogHer's origins, and some thoughts on getting funding, using blogging for marketing purposes and other typical tasty treats...all on SocialMediopolis.

[Yeah, I'm just trying to see how often I can work in the word SocialMediopolis.]
