​Hi, I’m Alyson

I'm a writer, digital marketer, and business owner.

By day I run Starling Social, a digital marketing agency which specializes in content marketing strategy, copywriting, and social media management. If any of that stuff interests you, drop us a line!

By night I blog here.

I've been writing for as long as I can remember, and have been publishing content online for more than 16 years. I've blogged consistently throughout the years on a variety of blog platforms; from LiveJournal, DeadJournal, Xanga, MySpace, Blogger, Wordpress, and now here, on my own little corner of the internet.

Blogging, as you may have guessed, is a big part of who I am.

My blog is where I record my life. Where I make sense of my thoughts.

It's how I share myself with the world.

So, welcome! I hope you enjoy your time here.

Some things I'm proud of

Testimonials

"Restaurants are hard to work with. We are at our busiest when most are ready to relax with friends and family, the smallest glitch can mess with best of plans. Most of all they are very personal. Working someone who can not only hear our unique voice, but is able to project it confidently, we have been able to reach a much larger and more diverse audience than I ever believed possible.

Working with Alyson has been an amazing experience, she has handled all the craziness will style and grace."

- Jennifer Strom, Owner, Trails North Grill
