Ananda’s Kickstarter.com Fundraising Update – Raised $106 towards $500 goal!

Ananda hosts Sisterhood the Blog Radio’s Women in Social Media Series in June

Logo by Ananda Leeke

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.”

Be sure to tune into the Women in Social Media interview series on  June 10 at 8 pm EST (Pam Perry), June 14  at 9 pm EST (Johanna Vondeling), June 15 at 8:30 pm EST (Katherine Lewis), June 17 at 8 pm EST (Kety Esquivel), and June 22 at 8 pm EST (Shonali Burke). These are powerful ladies with passion and positive energy!!!! They rock!

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).
