I have, as you know, been quite happy with my current job – the job I started in July of 2005. For the last year-plus, I have been the Internal Communications Manager for a large (600+ person) dotcom here in the Bay Area. I have enjoyed much (most) about the position...
...except for one thing. I’m not exactly passionate about it. I mean, I enjoy crafting communications (hi) and I have always loved managing meetings and events – even in my social life.
My wedding was a pretty fan-f’ing-tastic event. I relished every minute of planning it, and it was so lovely and fun and warm and enjoyable. I hadn’t realized until then the extent to which I love planning events, especially social.
I bring this up because I got married seven years ago today.
Two years later, I arrived in San Francisco. Happy San-niversary to me!]
But back to my current job.
I do enjoy many aspects of what I do, but you know how it is. Frankly, I’d rather be blogging. (Duh.)
And now, well.
I am pleased to announce that I am leaving my current position, my current company*, and going to work for BlogHer.org.
I can hardly believe it.
But, yes. Starting November 6, I will be part of the incredibly talented BlogHer team, helping to, among other things, manage the BlogHer Events.
Now you’ll HAVE to come to Chicago!
*Which I'll divulge once I've gone. Ahem.
