It’s been a busy and juicy week for me. My focus has been on women in social media. Monday night was fantastic because I hosted Sisterhood the Blog Radio’s Talkshoe.com show on how women marry their social justice, social entrepreneurial, and/or nonprofit work with social media. I was joined by a powerful group of nonprofit and social justice digital divas. They included:
-July 5 @9pm EST – Women who attended Blogging While Brown conference on June 18 and 19 in DC
-July 6 @8pm EST – Najeema Thompson
-July 8 @8pm EST – Amanda Jones
-July 12 @8pm EST – Shon Bacon
-July 20 @8pm EST – Michele McGraw
-July 26 @8pm EST – Devra Renner
-July 29 @8pm EST – April Davis
5) Listen to Ananda host Sisterhood the Blog Radio’s July 31st episode at 1:00 pm EST featuring a discussion with Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. members about their use of social media during Boule 2010 (national convention) held from July 14 to July 22 in Palm Springs, California. FYI – Ananda is a member of Sigma! The show will also include a discussion on how Ananda’s Sigma sorority sisters use social media in their businesses. www.talkshoe.com/tc/42015.
In late May, I launched the Women in Social Media series on Sisterhood the Blog Radio with Lynne D. Johnson, Senior Vice President of Social Media for the Advertising Research Foundation. I have admired Lynne for many years (loved her blog when she was at Fast Company, one of the first tech magazines I started reading in the late 90s) and read her blog like it is a religion! She is truly one of my digital diva sheroes! Check out Lynne’s interview with another one of my fav social media sheroes Lena West.
On June 1, I spoke with Sonya Steele, a lawyer turned LA-based screenwriter, about her new web TV show “Celeste Bright.” See video trailer below. It is INCROYABLE (incredible as the French say!). It launches later this month.
I spoke with my new favorite social media author Deanna Zandt, a media technologist, about her new book Share This! How You Will Change the World with Social Networking on June 6. Deanna and I had a chance to meet in person at Open City on June 7 while she was in DC for a book reading and conference. She is amazing. See our photo below. I will be writing a book review about Share This! later this month on my DC Social Media Examiner column.
FYI – You can listen to my interviews with Lynne, Sonya, and Deanna, by clicking here and looking for their audio recordings in the section called “Past Episodes.”
NOTE: I am using my Sisterhood the Blog Radio and BAP Living Radio interviews as research for my next book Sisterhood the Blog: Soundbytes from the 21st Century Women’s Online Revolution (December 2011).
