One of my favorite things in life is cooking. Taking simple ingredients and putting them together in such a way that my husband and toddler smile after a meal 🙂

To augment the Register tech reporter’s coverage, I wrote two blog posts about the new iPad.
The first was about if someone should buy the new iPad. While discussing the new iPad ahead of the announcement, most people talked about it within the scope of if they didn’t have an iPad or if they already have the 1 or 2. I thought that writing to each person could help make the new iPad features more relevant (rather than just writing to one general audience).
I also collected the best apps for the new iPad – for proud new owners looking to play and show off. Before the new iPad was available I collected apps that should sparkle in retina and make full use of the camera. Then, after my new iPad arrived, I updated with new information from a user’s perspective.
Most tech blogs like to write about every single rumor as it stumbles across the web. As CNet and a few others did, I rounded up the rumors for anxious tech readers.
The round-up was also a good way for potential iPad buyers and sellers to think about what is most likely to be included – in case they wanted to buy or sell ahead of the Apple announcement. Also, the links throughout help readers to find out more about each specific rumor.
My work in managing the Register’s 50+ blogs included: training and supporting existing blog staff, consulting on new blog ideas, consulting with struggling blog staff, overseeing blog technical upgrades and changes, constructed best blogging practices and training guides and managed blog audience growth.
