March 10, 2008 9 Comments
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 Knowledge”? After reading her informative ongoing series “From Twits to Tweeple, Why I Embraced ”, both experienced and You Should Too 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.

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?!?
