Blogger Socialites: Laycock, Lee, Livingston, Magno, Maltoni

OK, so this group of Blogger Social registrants got done out of sequence. But it’s only because we were running short of superlatives, and had to search high and low for new and creative ways to brag about our blogging colleagues (does that sound good, Valeria??). Many thanks to Kristin Gorski for writing up this set!

As Editor of the Search Engine Guide blog, Jennifer Laycock loves to share her knowledge of search engine marketing, viral marketing and social media to help small business owners master their business domains. But did you know that she may also be the “Goddess of All Twitter Knowledge”? After reading her informative ongoing series “From Twits to Tweeple, Why I Embraced Twitter and You Should Too”, both experienced Twitter users and newbies will undoubtedly learn valuable tips.

Do you “retweet”? If you don’t, after reading Jennifer’s post, you will. Your viral marketing efforts will thank you for it.

When Jennifer isn’t clarifying some of the Interweb’s most challenging and vital fine points for the hungry online masses, she is happily explaining the world to her young son and daughter. From seeing how well she educates on Search Engine Guide, it is clear what a gifted teacher these young ones have in their mother!

A PR veteran of agencies like Ogilvy & Mather, Niehaus Ryan Group/Wong, and Blanc & Otus, Cece knows how to get the word out. She writes about blending public relations with marketing to make results for her clients at her personal blog PR Meets Marketing. Cece shares what she is learning along the way; check out her post “Pitching Bloggers”, a resource that all PR folks dealing with Blogville should read thoroughly and refer to regularly. With both feet planted firmly in the tech world, Cece is currently doing in-house PR at ON24, a company which specializes in making rich media applications (like webcasts and podcasts) easy to use and packed with value.

Looking at all her company’s services, I have many questions to ask her about web- and pod-casting. Bast on her extensive work experience, I’d like to get insights from her about blogging and PR, too. From looking in awe at her photo on her blog’s “About” page, I would also like to know this: how long did she stay on that mechanical bull?!?

geoff-living-150.jpgGeoff Livingston

Geoff Livingston is co-author with Brian Solis of Now is Gone: A Primer on New Media for Executives and Entrepreneurs, which just recently won the Silver Medal in the Advertising/Marketing/PR/Event Planning category at the 2008 Axiom Business Book Awards.

As head of Livingston Communications and Editor of The Buzz Bin, this marketing strategist has developed a diverse clientele in the Washington, D.C.-metro area: the Duke Ellington Jazz Festival, the Washington Nationals, Verizon Wireless, and a host of others. Geoff is also a sought-after speaker on marketing, PR and new media. After having given keynote presentations to the Direct Marketing Association of Washington, The New, New Internet Web 2.0 Accelerator and Success in the City’s New Media Nouveaux conference, everyone knows that Livingston really talks his talk.

According to a mysterious item listed on his blog’s “About” page, Geoff also seems to have some space travel on his résumé. If you’d like to know what he forgot to pack on his trip to the moon, just click here!

lori-magno-150.jpgLori Magno

Lori Magno runs the Moda di Magno Blog for Stylish Living. As a Creative Liaison with Digitas Boston, she also posts at The Digital Hive, the Digitas account planning group’s blog.

This multi-faceted creative shares her rich artistic interests online. She recently embarked on an iPhone photo safari around Boston and posted the images to her blog; they are the latest in an ongoing series of “iPhone pix” and capture moments of interesting visual details, fun spontaneity, and how design communicates. Lori is also an accomplished jewelry designer. If you’d like to spend some time gazing at elegant, unique necklaces, earrings and bracelets online (like I did in researching this blurb), do check out her Accessories for Stylish Living webstore.

Lori pens in her Blogger Social bio that she is “an Audi-driving, Mac-using, doppio-drinking (mostly), Red Sox-loving liberal”. From seeing her work online, I suggest she add “Renaissance woman” to her list.

valeria_maltoni-150.jpgValeria Maltoni

Valeria Maltoni is the Conversation Agent. Her client list reads like a “Who’s Who” of the most influential corporate and academic business minds in the world. She is a Fast Company Expert blogger and also posts at The Blog Herald and Marketing Profs Daily Fix.

Originally from Italy, she now resides in Philadelphia. Publishing her writing in both English and Italian, her marketing insights truly reach a global audience.

Thought-leader Valeria lives and breathes inspiring marketing. Her post “Conversations on the Future of Advertising” is one current example of this hallmark trait of hers.

  1. Nice to meet you, Kristin. Thank you for doing the write up. And thank you Steve for sharing her writing here.

    I see that your list of accomplishments is long and varied. Complimenti, as we say in Italian. From a fellow word/writing lover to another – truly looking forward to meeting you at Blogger Social.

    LOL – I actually stayed on it for about 2 minutes – they tend to be kinder to women! Thanks for the write up and look forward to meeting everyone in a few weeks!

  4. Fun! Now I want to know if there will be bull riding at any of the GSM events. 🙂

    Every time I’ve been at a party that had it, I’ve been pregnant. (of course when you spend four straight years pregnant or nursing, you tend to have to skip a lot of the fun stuff.) 😛

    I’m ready for some fun. Someone go rent a mechanical bull!

  5. Valeria — You’re most welcome on the write up. Looking forward to meeting you at Blogger Social, too!

    CeCe — You’re welcome on the write up, too. Two minutes on the mechanical bull? WOW.

    Jennifer — I’m with you. OK, who’s in charge of the mechanical bull at Blogger Social? 😉
