Social Media Manager in Salem, Massachusetts
What do you do after having been a journeyman journalist for nearly 40 years (my, my that makes me sound old, luckily I don’t feel it) specializing in covering business & community news in a half dozen states for close to 100 newspapers, magazines, radio stations and internet sites? Don’t know about you, but keep the rocking chair away from me.
Newspapers may or may not be fading away, but the emergence of Social Media has provided a second life for “local” journalism writers, such as myself. I now actively inform/connect people with merchants, attractions and events in their community through client (and personal) websites, blogs, Twitter, Periscope and other Social Media platforms.
