I’m the co-founder, publisher and president of the Jackson Free Press, an award-winning monthly magazine (and daily website) in Jackson, Miss.
In addition, I’m the principal for JFP Digital Services, which offers content marketing services (blogging, newsletters, social media management, video, etc.) to nonprofits, businesses and thought-leadership professionals.
We also offer our JFPSites.com self-service (or done-for-you) websites for local businesses and organizations.
I’m the part-time Digital Specialist for the Association of Alternative Newsmedia (AAN), where I represent the organization with projects such as the Google News Initiative Ad Transformation Lab while helping set up webinars, conference programming and partnerships.
In a previous career, I wrote a lot of consumer technology books. I’m the author or co-author of more than three dozen books on computing and the Internet; an award-winning magazine writer; and a former television and radio host.
A few years ago, I completed a series of eBooks focused on helping readers with Windows experience move to Mac OS. I was also the editor of How I Listed and Sold My House Without an Agent, written by my mom, novelist Liz Stauffer.
I live in Jackson with journalist Donna Ladd, Capp Bob and Gizmo. Some or all of us occasionally participate in “Driving History” videos, driving around Mississippi (so far) talking about what we learn.
