EngageOKC started with a simple idea: What if we got all of our favorite Oklahoma City bloggers, the ones we’re always talking to on Twitter, together for dinner? Wouldn’t that be fun? (We did it. It was super fun.)
That small dinner grew into a larger meetup that included both local bloggers and local businesses, and we realized we were on to something. There has to be a way, we thought, to keep the momentum going and get all these Oklahoma City bloggers and businesses working together.
And EngageOKC was born.
EngageOKC is a collaborative, hyperlocal network of bloggers and businesses. Our goal is to help you connect with your community, through events and social media campaigns. We hope you’ll join us.
Susan has lived in Oklahoma City since 2000, and has been blogging since 2005. In a previous life, she taught genre studies and literary theory at the University of Washington, Tacoma, and at the University of Puget Sound. These days, she’s a freelance writer and editor, and full-time mom to her two crazy sons. Susan has worked for AOL, BlogHer and Discovery Channel; her writing has been included in the anthologies “Sleep is For the Week: The Best of the Mommybloggers” and “Kirtsy Takes a Bow.” She has been a speaker at a variety of blogging and social media conferences, including the Mom. 2.0 Summit, Altitude Summit, BlogHer and M2Moms.
When she’s not editing copy or shuttling her boys to karate and baseball, Susan is an avid runner. She’s also a little bit obsessed with curating the perfect wardrobe, and would love to come help you clean out your closet. No, seriously.
