The Maiden Voyage

Filed under: Uncategorized — dberch @ 9:38 pm

And we’re off!  Not cracking a bottle over the hull just yet, not even quite ready to declare that she’ll float, but hey, a username and a blog’s a start.  Right?

Welcome to my blog.  I suppose introductions are in order.  My name is Dinah, I live outside of DC in Northern Virginia, and I’m obsessed with web and new media.  I’ve worked as a web manager for Tradewinds Imports, a small retail company in Vermont;  I’ve worked with social networking for the Office for the Arts at Harvard; and I’m currently working as a web advocacy assistant for a nonprofit in D.C.  But this new project is entirely my own.  The goal?  To design my own website, throw all my knowledge and skills into it, and see if I can, well, make it float.  Go somewhere.  Take off.  Make me rich?  I doubt it.  But who knows?  For me, the fun is in the journey.  Interested in seeing me off?

As I immerse myself further and further into the world of web 2.0 and social networking, I’ve learned a great deal from fellow bloggers.  Some are experts in their fields – many just tried different things, got luck (or didn’t) and decided to share their successes and their failures.  To all of you out there – any helpful suggestions or comments you may have along the way are greatly encouraged and appreciated.  The greatest thing about the web might be the sense of community – isn’t that what social networking’s supposed to be all about?

So, shall we get our feet wet?  Wish me luck!



  1. Good luck, Dinah!
