To be open and transparent, I want to offer full disclosure of my online activity, work and relationships. I’ve customized this to work for me. Let me know if it doesn’t work for you.


  • I am the sole author, creator, community manager, and late-night owl who operates this blog unless otherwise communicated in individual blog posts.
  • Currently, I have no relationships with any advertisers for the blog. If this changes, I will let you know.
  • This is my content and my voice based on my experiences, observations and educational training. I work to bring the best journalistic principles to my writing (after all, I did go to J-School).
  • I also admit that I am influenced by my background, my interests, the people I surround myself with, and you, the reader. I look forward to sharing myself with you and getting to know you even more. If you want to have a conversation on ‘objectivity,’ catch me here–> @Socialbttrfly. Who knows, it could be a great blog post.
  • I am not compensated to provide opinions on products, services, websites and various other topics. If I endorse a certain topic, product or service area, it will be because I believe, based on my experience and knowledge at that time, that they are worthy of your time and attention.
  • Course, I’m human, and I change and make mistakes. So, bear with me as we ebb and flow here together.


  • From 2011 to 2012, I was a freelance writer for Razoo’s Inspiring Generosity blog.
  • I’ve worked with BlogCatalog and the Bloggers Unite team for a client project.
  • I was a Sr. Ambassador for LiveEarth 2009. This was a voluntary role.
  • I was on the Program Committee for the Gov 2.0 Expo in 2009. This was a voluntary role.
  • My blog is developed on, and I use BlueHost  as my hosting service.
  • I am a member of Amazon’s Associates program.
