So last week I was knee-deep in lobbying in Sacramento against CA AB 178 and then spent the rest of the week in San Francisco at the Web 2.0 Expo. So I didn’t have a lot of time to read my RSS feed. So some of this stuff is a bit old, but don’t shoot the messenger. If you were on top of your game you wouldn’t rely on this, so just remember that beggars can’t be choosers!
- Another guest post by me at Marketing Pilgrim on a new Social Media masters program being offered in the UK.
- You can save 5% when flying JetBlue to Affiliate Summit East in August. I took them up on this discount for ASE last year in Boston and it totally turned JetBlue into my favorite airline!

- Speaking of NEM, I’m no longer of their employ. Wanna hire me? Of course you do… Email me!
I’m officially on the market.
That’s right, it’s with a sadness that I report that I am no longer the Director of Affiliate Marketing with New Edge Media. Their clients decided to go a different way with regards to Affiliate Marketing and through no fault of my own, I’m now without gainful employment. That’s all I’m really going to say on the subject.
I have to give huge props to my coworkers and boss who jumped right onto LinkedIn and gave me great recommendations. Thanks, ladies.
In the meantime, are you looking for an affiliate program manager to telecommute? Or if you’re based in the San Francisco Bay Area, work in-house? I’m your woman. I’m also open to any copywriting, blogging, web design, or other freelance or contract work until I secure a permanent position. My resume is available in PDF and on LinkedIn. A small portfolio of my graphic design work can also be found at Blinkstar Media.
I’m going back to job hunting, now…
This makes me a very sad panda.Read More

Yes, normally this would have come last week on Friday, but like many I was out shopping for my precious GPS unit that was on super sale. I hope everyone had a lovely Turkey Day! Did you know that until 1863, Thanksgiving was celebrated on different days? The president would announce when it would be celebrated until that year, when President Abraham Lincoln decreed it would be on the fourth Thursday in November. It actually took until 1941 for Congress to pass an official proclamation declaring it a legal holiday on the fourth Thursday in November.
So be thankful for your health and the good information you can find online!
