About Web Search

I am responsible for daily programming/supervision of all content at About Web Search, part of the New York Times company. This includes finding assets, writing headlines/treatments, image treatments, monitoring stats, and much more. I create my own editorial calendar and monitor technology industry developments via RSS and various social networking outlets. I track and monitor statistics with an internal statistics package in order to stay abreast of breaking trends or gain insights on how to further develop one that’s already building. I collaborate with an internal editorial team of writers and editors to develop ideas and new ways to present content. I work with other editors, writers, etc. to share best practices and avoid becoming stagnant, troubleshoot common issues, and launch new projects.

ADDitude 

Community Editor for ADDitude, an online community and magazine dedicated to families and adults living with ADHD and learning disabilities. I interact with users, build community, and connect searchers to resources that can enrich their lives. I also brainstorm and launch contests and other promotions to drive traffic, write and send weekly newsletters designed to build traffic and enhance the community experience, update the homepage, create new resources (groups, guides, etc.) based on user demand, and promote the site via social media outlets.

B5 Media

Created, published, and publicized three of the top blogs in the entire (100+ blogs) network.

Lifehacker

I was the Weekend Editor for Lifehacker, part of the Gawker Media network and quite frankly one of the most kickass blogs on the planet; I also did features off and on (you can see all my features here: http://lifehacker.com/software/technophilia/).
