About this Blog
I wanted to dedicate a page to talk a little about this blog and its intent. For years, I’ve blogged about various things and tried to start a few separate blogging projects dedicated to different areas of interest. I found out that was not very efficient. I’ve decided to move my previous blog, Social Media for Writers to this blog, for example. That blog was all about social media for writers, so why not consolidate those here?
As I focus on one endeavor, I’ve decided to blog about a few main topics as they pertain to the areas in which I am passionate. Let’s take a look:
I will blog about higher education, specifically marketing and website related issues. I’ll probably sprinkle in what it means to be part of a great campus community. I am active in my alumni association at Wilkes and now work for another liberal arts college, so I have a few angles to go here. (view posts)
I will blog about social media in general, but also more specifically uses of social media in publishing and higher ed. My areas of interest include Twitter, blogging, Facebook, mobile apps. (view posts)
I spent several years working in the eCommerce field and will, from time to time, share my thoughts, ideas and advice on eCommerce. (view posts)
There is nothing better than being part of a great community of writers. Nowhere to no one else can you talk about the craft and the writer’s life – I live for conversation with my MFA friends and other active writers. I plan to share my thoughts on the publishing industry, the creative process, creative nonfiction and the writer’s life. Also, I am founder and publisher of the online creative nonfiction literary magazine, Hippocampus. (view posts)
What else will this blog be about?
I plan to also blog about the events in which I participate, such as social media workshops. I’ll report when I am published in various publications. I also have, in addition to blog posts, static pages which cover:
- About Donna – who I am and where I come from and where I am going
- In the News – highlights of articles for which I was interviewed or featured
- Contact and Connect – a contact form to reach out to me
- Speaking – list of prior, upcoming and available speaking engagements
- Publications – a list of publications in which I’ve been published
What is this blog NOT about?
I will keep this blog professional about the industries and strategies in which I have some expertise or interest. Posts about friends, family, events I’ve gone to and random observations about life can be found at my personal blog, Daily Dose ‘o Donna. (Daily Dose ‘o Donna is more of an archive site as I have tried to commit to this blog; to help me focus, I chose not to post at DDD indefinitely, but hope you will read some of my posts!)
Hello! I’m Donna…
