—I was the founding editor of Budget Travel's travel blog, This Just In. Within three years, it drew 25,000 comments and became the top-ten most read travel blog in the U.S., according to Technorati in summer 2010.
—I boosted awareness of the brand through interviews on U.S. TV networks, such as on NBC (Nightly News), ABC (World News This Morning), CNN (Live Saturday), FOX News (America's News), and MSNBC (Live!, 16 times in 2009 alone).
—I launched our then-pioneering @budgettravel Twitter feed.
—Commissioned and edited features.
—In two years, the website’s traffic volume doubled to 4 million page-views a month on average.
—Managed the homepage. "Surfaced" the best of the user-generated content from the 10,000 members of the My Budget Travel social community (similar to Panoramio.com, the photo-sharing site).
