Meet Cecily Kellogg of Uppercase Woman.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’ve been blogging at Uppercase Woman since March of 2004. I’ve always been a writer, and writing the first person narrative that is blogging – what I fondly like to call “narcissistic navel gazing” but most prefer to call it memoir – is where the words really starting to sing for me.
Since then, the world of social media has gone crazy, and I’m up to my neck in it – personally and professionally. I’m well known for my raw tone and humor on Twitter as @CecilyK, and my posts about social media and moms on MomCrunch for Babble and I have my own column called The Uppercase Lowdown on Babble Voices (I also enjoy contributing to Babble Pets as well).
I live in the Philadelphia area, am happily married, am mom to a fierce and amazing daughter, and have occasionally been called a bad ass. I currently work with AboutOne doing Social Media and Content Strategy. I was named by Babble as one of the Top 100 Mom Bloggers in 2011 (and Top 50 Twitter Moms in 2010).
Is there a story behind your blog name?
Yes: the reason letters are called “upper” and “lower” case is because in the old days of printing presses capital letters were stored in the upper bin, and the others were kept in the lower bin. So Uppercase Woman means I’m always reaching upward – toward being better, toward goals, toward God even.
But it also means I have a high tendency to TYPE IN UPPERCASE A LOT.
What is your favorite social network and why?
Twitter. Cause it’s fun.
When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A veterinarian. Then I got drunk instead.
What would be your dream brand to work with?
What is your favorite blog or blogger that is not your own, and why?
Too many to list! OMG.
What is your favorite indulgence?
Technology, for sure.
