Lindsay Reed Maines is a writer, mother of three, teacher, consultant, and journalist.
Her work has appeared in The Washington Post and Brain, Child Magazine, and Mamazina, among others. She’s a frequent speaker at social media conferences, a consultant to companies large and small, and a firm believer in the power of digital media. She’s also on the Social Media Advisory Board of Care.com.
Lindsay got involved in social media while working on selling her first non-fiction book, “Rock and Roll Mamas”, about moms keeping their identity post- baby. That’s still in process, but the past two years have been a whirlwind of all that digital engagement brings. From the Oscars to seeing our President speak, social media’s taken Lindsay many places she never imagined- including in meetings with publishers about how to use social media to market books.
Women Create Media is a square knot of digital media and traditional publishing, and the process of creating it made Lindsay profoundly aware of the amazing network she’s privy to in both worlds- and the ways the two influence each other.
She blogs regularly at www.rockandrollmama.com, and is a founding member and “Just For Fun” editor at www.lifetimemoms.com. (A division of Lifetime Digital/A&E Network) She can be reached at lindsaymaines (at) mac(dot)com.
