It took a little over a month to get everything in place but I’m very excited to finally announce that I have just accepted the amazing opportunity to head social media strategy at ChicagoNow! In case you’re wondering what we’re all about, our editorial director Tracy describes it succinctly as “Huffington Post meets Facebook for Chicago”.
We’re blessed with fantastic leadership and a well-rounded team of community managers and bloggers who are passionate about Chicago and everything it has to offer. So please stop by, register on the site, and don’t forget to tell us how we’re doing and how we can improve.
ChicagoNow is a new place for Chicagoans to connect and share their interests with each other.
We think of it as an online town square for the Chicago of right now–the city that gave the world a president and may host the world for an Olympics.
We’ve quickly grown from a handful of blogs to almost 70 blogs and are looking forward to welcoming many more into the ChicagoNow family (if you think you could be one of our future superstars, or would like to partner/collaborate with us, don’t hesitate to get in touch). Finally, we’re less than a week away from taking the beta sticker off the site so please drop by and take a look, we’re confident that you’ll fall in love.
