Engineering the Future for Entrepreneurs

Next week, I will have the honor of visiting Penn State as a Bishoff Entrepreneur-in-Residence and participating in several of the courses they provide for students who are studying engineering entrepreneurship as a minor. It’s an impressive program and these students will undoubtedly come out of it much better prepared than I was leaving college. I look forward to […]

Talking About Raising the Next Generation of Digital Citizens

This week, I’ll be joining my friend and colleague, Veronica Arreola, in a discussion at the 2015 BlogHer conference in New York, #BlogHer15: Experts Among Us. Veronica’s built her career around studying diversity in STEM. I’ve built mine around the intersections between digital media and society, having grown up online before most people knew what […]

For Today’s Books, it’s an Expedition, Not a Tour

As I embarked on another trip since the launch of my book six months ago, I ran into friends and was asked the question, yet again, “how’s the book tour going?” For some reason, this confounds me because I don’t feel like it’s a tour. I think of tours as detailed itineraries with a tight schedule, traveling […]

Transitions in the Modern World

Twice a year I experience a feeling of intrinsic transition: January, the new year, and September, the new school year. This year, September came early with my book’s release just before my daughter started back at school in late August, and suddenly I was thrust into another set of transitions at work and at home.

Amazon and the Wild World of Bestseller Lists

My book, The Digital Mystique, has now been out for a month and it has been fascinating to watch the online sales through Amazon as an author as well as a digital media strategist, techie and data geek. Now I can say legitimately that my book is a bestseller – even though it was published […]

On Becoming an Author

On the eve of my book’s publication and introduction to the world, I thought I should write down my thoughts about the whole experience of becoming an author so I will remember them, and share them for others who seek to follow a similar path. Like many, I romanticized the idea of becoming an author […]

Tips for Writing Quality Content

While writing my book, I decided that although I had been writing professionally for many years now that I hadn’t really read much about nonfiction writing as a craft, so I searched Amazon and found On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction, by William Zinsser, revised for its 30th anniversary edition. I gradually […]

Leadership in the Digital Age – Video

I’ve done a lot of thinking, writing and speaking about leadership and empowerment in the digital age. I plan to do more in the future, but you can now click here to view a video from the Cardea Center where I speak to this topic – with women in particular in mind.  

Some Musings, After 10 Years of Blogging

I’ve missed blogging. Writing my first book has been taking most of my writing time and energy the past year and now that I’m almost done, I can truly say it’s been an amazing experience, but I miss blogging. Real blogging. Not microblogging like what we do on Facebook or Twitter. Not long feature articles, […]
