Cynthia Wheeler: @NapWarden
With two design degrees, and an unhealthy obsession with all things Adobe, Cynthia started her one stop shop for everything from blog design to custom illustration and logo creation 3 years ago. Over 100 blog designs later, and many late night dates with her Macbook Pro, NW Designs has become her full time job. As if that wasn’t enough, she also adds wife and mom of two to her list. You can find her chronicling the entire journey at her personal blog Nap Warden.com.
Danielle Smith: @DanielleSmithTV
Once upon a time, Danielle was an award-winning television news anchor. Today, Danielle has turned the page on her Traditional Media tale, and now balances her blog, Extraordinary Mommy, with hosting and producing Bliss TV, creating Vlogging Tips for people looking to jump on camera, and traveling around the country to speak on a wide variety of topics ranging from video and vlogging to blogger/brand relationships, the use of social media, and the benefits of cause marketing.
Holly from Where We Can Live Like Jack & Sally is a local St. Louis blogger who has been thinking of her next meal since 1985. She enjoys helping others grow their blogs and develop their brand. Holly firmly believes that everyone has a story to tell and looks better with a little makeup. She has successfully worked with major brands such a Target, Green Giant, and Dr. V (Bravolebrity), while working a blog design business with her husband. She shoots to be a pinterest worthy party planner and fails miserably every time. In her spare time, you can find her hiding in the bathroom checking her Instagram.
Tiffany Romero: @TiffanyRom
Tiffany is a mom, wife, business owner, and entrepreneur who began blogging in March 2008. Just a few months after starting her personal blog, she recognized the need for a blogger-based community and created www.thesitsgirls.com. Now 75,000 members strong and growing, The SITS Girls is a cornerstone in the blogging world offering everything from articles on education, recipes, and interviews with women influencers. Tiffany was also the driving force behind launching Bloggy Boot Camp, Sway Group’s official blogging conference. In 2009, Tiffany saw the need for an affordable one day event for women in social media, and created a educational/networking “boot camp” tour that quickly caught attention from Fast Company, The NY Times, The Huffington Post and ABC News. When not on-line, Tiffany keeps busy running a private summer camp with her husband in Los Angeles and shuttling her tween son to and from baseball practice. Want to know more?
