Blog posts

From Friends of the Mississippi River

I am often in charge of editing and polishing other staff’s blog posts, but I also get to write a variety of my own: insights into local ecology and phenology, how-tos, celebrations of place, and more. Our website consistently draws more than 15,000 viewers each month, largely because of our valuable blog content.

From Strada Communication

I initiated and managed a weekly blog for Strada Communication, a disability communication access company which has now closed. (Regrettably, the blog has disappeared along with the company’s domain.) Blog posts spotlighted staff, advocated for disability rights, and explored disability access services, resources, technologies, and best practices.

From Strada Communication

I initiated a monthly e-newsletter for clients called Access Matters, which showcased our online content about disability access and rights.
