Jo-Lynne Shane

In my professional life, I'm a lifestyle blogger, freelance writer and community manager. When I'm not at my computer, which is rare these days, you will most likely find me pounding the pavement training for my first half marathon or on the couch with my nose stuck in a book.

My husband says I have two speeds -- stop and go. I say I'm the most outgoing introvert you'll ever meet. I love a good party but I'm just as happy to stay home with my Kindle and a glass of wine. I talk too fast and over-think everything.

I love to spin a story and spend the better part of my life waxing eloquent on my blog, Musings of a Housewife about all matters of food, fashion and fitness. I also facilitate our vibrant local networking group, Philly Social Media Moms. As if that doesn't keep me busy enough, I'm social media manager for a small gourmet food company, Rose Romano's Italian Toppings.

I was named one of Nielsen’s 50 Most Influential Women in Social Media. I've been interviewed on local radio, and my advertorial for Olay appeared in the September 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine. My writing has appeared on and My recipes have been featured in Redbook, Elle, Woman's Day, Cosmopolitan and Southern Living magazines and on I recently made an appearance on the Dr. Oz Show, and I will be writing a monthly recipe column for I'm a member of the Target Inner Circle, an ambassador for Udi's Gluten Free Foods, a regular to contributor to Smart Beauty Guide, and I’m currently writing a gluten-free breakfast and brunch cookbook for the Everything Series for Adams Media.
