Why starting some wacky personal finance video was important.
I find & create opportunity to:
- develop content on blogs, microblogs, and provide live blogging services

And there’s more!
In the Washington, DC region, I help nonprofits, small businesses, & community outreach programs on making their online identity more visible, integrated, & conversational with their community.
What type of communities? Those invested in their success, their mission, their advocacy – like their clients, their volunteers, their sponsors, their students.
Regularly I teach basic online video production & other social media to advocacy groups which is a thrill. It’s gratifying to observe that moment when students and clients realize just how accessible (and fun) social media tools can be.
That’s when the creative empowerment begins … to emerge online communities, expand their funds of knowledge, & even their sphere of influence.
It’s a powerful time to be in social media.
