    1. Hi Jeremiah,
      Thanks for the mention. Although strictly speaking I moved from to running the community marketing effort for a total of 7 websites for Bauer Consumer Media (including, and the number is likely to grow by a couple more shortly!

      I’m really enjoying seeing who, and which companies, are embracing the inevitable rise of social and community work, and the ‘On The Move’ series is great to keep track and see if the numbers are growing!
