I have devoted over 10 years to the design of  websites, the cultivation of community, and the craft of blogging.


milkmoney or not…

this is what I do

I am a writer invested in online publications, I design beautiful websites that embody the character and goals of the owners and honour those who use both the back and front ends of the sites, I am a public speaker who has spoken at conferences across North America about creativity, self-doubt, iPhoneography, the crafts of both writing and blogging, and social media, and I consult on various aspects of blogging and social media from complete website reviews to short live courses that introduce organizations to social media and its best practices.

I am a founder of online communities, because when a need arises, why not fill it? I am the founder of the Canadian Weblog Awards, a juried competition based on quality, and Grace in Small Things, a social network for honouring our gratitude for the small things we overlook. I am also a co-founder of GenderAvenger, a community dedicated to ensuring women are always part of the public dialogue, and #BlogNow, a Twitter chat where we talk about the state of blogging, how we blog, and why we do it.
