I'm a best-selling author, long-time technologist, blogger, and freelance writer. I started blogging on a whim in 2004 and quickly became both a professional blogger—Canada's first professional blogger, in fact— and a leading expert in business blogging. I have been a part of several Web 2.0 startups large and small including blogging software, video production, secure email, community management, as well as number social media agencies. A full docket of my experience is on my LinkedIn profile. In addition to giving workshops and speaking at conferences, I also teach at UBC and elsewhere and have published three social media books: Create Your Own Blog (2009), Using WordPress (2010) and Sams Teach Yourself Foursquare in 10 Minutes (2011). If you’d like someone to cover your conference or event in words, pictures, or both let me know. If you’d like to learn more about social media, blogging, and technology, I’m happy to chat with you. Need some content created (even ghost writing) let me know. Ping me via e-mail ... tris AT trishussey DOT com. I'm available for long and short term writing and community management gigs.
