Other places I write:
I am Ann Handley, and this is my personal web log. This is a place to talk about the state of “Annarchy.” Annarchy is my world: a general state of disorder and occasional (yes!) chaos. Here, I talk about the interesting bits of life, the stuff that doesn’t fit into either my business blogging or freelance editorializing.
What I do: I am a veteran of creating and managing digital content to build relationships for organizations and individuals, and I have a demonstrated ability to develop content strategy and to fully execute on it. I have a real passion for building community, particularly in using new media tools to broaden and build value.
Currently, I work as the Chief Content Officer of MarketingProfs, which provides strategic and tactical marketing know-how and training for marketing and business professionals. I write a monthly column for Entrepreneur Magazine as well as contribute regularly to MarketingProfs and its blog, the MarketingProfs Daily Fix,. I am also an occasional contributor to The Huffington Post, American Express OPEN Forum and Mashable. I also speak regularly about content and marketing at conferences and events.
Previously, I was the co-founder of ClickZ, one of the first sources of interactive marketing news and commentary. Prior to that, I spent 12 years as a business editor and writer for both local and national trade and consumer publications.
I live near Boston in a slightly creaky, comfortable house with 2 kids, 2 dogs, good coffee in the kitchen, decent wine in the cellar, a stack of New Yorkers by the bed, and an occasional field mouse in the laundry room.
