About Maggie & Mizz Information
Note: it’s now (as of the time I write this update) January 2023 and I’m pretty sure I wrote this intro at least a decade ago. I’m still the same person but suffice it to say a lot of my “passion” about social media has been eroded as social media has played a pivotal role in eroding democracy, civil discourse, privacy and just life in general. Rather than reinvent the wheel re-writing this I did at least want to add some context. I’ve recently started a new blog, Chic n’ Geek, which is more current, both in terms of content, sentiment and how I grapple with defining myself these days.
Welcome to Mizz Information! It’s a blog about social media, community management and the association sector, with the occasional book/movie/random post thrown in for variety’s sake. I like to say that I know a little bit about a lot of things…that’s pretty much what Mizz Information is about.
The things I express in this blog are my own personal opinions; I do not represent my employer in any way….just so we’re cIear on that.
As for me, here’s the fancy version:
Maggie McGary is passionate about community management and the way social media is changing everything from traditional media to the workplace to the way businesses are structured. She has deep experience in all facets of digital communication including blogging, social media marketing, community management and web content development.
In 2011, Maggie was named the Angerosa Research Foundation’s 2011 Publishing Trendsetter, an award recognizing innovation that advances association publishing. Maggie is an active member of The Community Roundtable, a peer network of community, social media and social business practitioners.
In addition to over 10 years experience in the association world, Maggie is a blogger whose guest posts have been featured on numerous blogs including The Washington Post, SocialFishing and Social Media Today.
Here’s the non-fancy version: I’ve been blogging for over a decade and can’t seem to stop; I’m an obsessive reader and movie-goer; I’m a mom to two teens and live in the burbs of DC; I’m basically an association lifer; I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up even though I’m a middle-aged lady.
Still want to know more? Here’s my LinkedIn profile. Interested in working with me? I’m currently freelancing while trying to figure out whether or not to go back to being an employee so please feel free to check out the ways I can help and contact me if you’d like to chat.
