Blogger Socialites: Weinberg, Whittemore, Wilkins, Woodruff
March 26, 2008 3 Comments
I can’t believe it! We finally got through the whole list of attendees for the upcoming Blogger Social in NYC – this is the last batch of profiles!
The “master post” with the entire list of links for these profiles can be found here. Also, Arun Rajagopal (and supporting cast) has put together the “official” set of brief bios and pictures (yes, this set of Blogger Socialites profiles is actually a bootleg version!) here, which is fabulously done. However, since that document can’t possibly contain all the fascinating information for such a stunning-looking group, Jennifer Berk is putting together a print-able version of this bootleg set of profiles, and that will be available for download very shortly as well.
Tamar is a wonderfully smart blogger who writes over at Techipedia. Her blog covers social media, internet marketing, and personal/biz development (all from a tech geek at heart!)
She recently returned from SXSW and plans on posting even more juicy follow-ups like this one. And speaking of juicy goodness – you should definitely check out her post asking, “Is social media the final frontier of marketing?” (The comments section on this one is also a must-see.)
In her own words, Tamar writes, “I love learning how websites work, the social communities that surround them, the news and hype surrounding websites (especially search engines!), and I especially love administering the servers upon which they reside.” You can learn lots more about her here. And of course, you can see what she’s up to at Twitter, Flickr, and LinkedIn. We look forward to meeting you Tamar!
CB is all about flooring the consumer. So much so, that her blog bears that very same name. If you’re not a regular reader, you should certainly stop by and have a look at her plethora of in-depth articles about marketing, retail, and of course – flooring!
Since she says it way better than I ever could, let’s let CB have the floor. Here’s how she describes herself:
As Director, In-Store Innovation for Solutia’s Wear-Dated carpet fiber, I track consumer trends and am fascinated with digital and brick/mortar retailers who are passionate about meeting the needs of their consumers. My educational background includes a BA in Art History from Smith College, an MBA in Marketing from Columbia Business School, and constantly studying the world around me!
Come next Friday at Social, I’m sure you’ll floor us all, CB! ;-)
Kaitlyn’s blog (Catch Up Lady) covers everything from social media to politics to comedy to music to…you guessed it – ketchup. Kaitlyn’s writing is alive, intriguing and fun. She interjects some sarcasm, humor, and a little satire into many of her posts, and it makes for quite a good read.
For a little more background, here’s a blurb from her profile page:
The Catch Up Lady is me, Kaitlyn Wilkins, a 27 year old ketchup aficionado. Raised in Ann Arbor, I have lived on the east coast for the last eight years – which means I both drink pop, and pop my collar.
I am currently a Digital Influence Strategist with Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide in Washington, DC. Prior to that, I was a Project Manager with New Media Strategies, an online brand management and word of mouth marketing firm. I am a graduate of Wellesley College.
By the time we hit Social, I’m sure we’ll all have plenty of catching up to do with Kaitlyn ;-) And hopefully we can reserve a few bottles at the restaurant… (Anybody know if Heinz wants to be a sponsor?)
Last but not least, we’ve arrived at the man, the myth, the legend – Mr. Steve Woodruff. He is the inspiration, sweat, blood and tears behind this entire “Blogger Profiles” operation. And he also happens to blog right here at StickyFigure. His writing is practical, informative, strategic and engaging. And it can even be a little challenging at times (which is a good thing).
If you couldn’t gather from this massive labor of love, Steve is an incredibly generous guy with a passion for helping others. He’s a contributor at the Small Business Branding blog, the author of the Marketing Bloggers Portal (using the PageFlakes tool), a collaborator on The Branding Wire, and the founder and president of Impactivti, a firm that focuses on pharmaceutical sales training.
If you want more in-depth on this mythical figure, Steve has a historical ramble on his rarely-updated personal blog. Steve Twitters (a recent convert), does LinkedIn, and occasionally drops in at Facebook.
It’s only fitting that Steve comes last on this list, as he is the anchor of it all, and he consistently displays a great deal of humility. Need proof? His About section is at the very bottom of the sidebar. Oh, and he also spearheaded this amazing act of kindness so that we could all learn more about one another. Honestly Steve, we can’t thank you enough for putting this together. And we can’t wait to do it in person on April 4th, 2008 :-)
