 The Buzz about The Blogger Connection:


“I recently had the opportunity to work with Rachel and The Blogger Connection on a social media program for my work as a criminologist and media analyst, and to promote my book Mass Deception: Moral Panic and the US War on Iraq.  TBC designed and implemented a unique, highly entertaining “who-dunit” mystery game and an exciting Twitter party to celebrate the winners of the two-week promotional event.  The entire program ran flawlessly, resulting in significantly increased traffic to my website and generating an immediate spike in book sales. I give TBC my highest recommendation.”

“TV/Social Media Producer Deborah ‘Debbie’ Mitchell was a big help to us for the 4th Annual Shorty Awards. Her experience in both social media and entertainment helped us think about how we could grow the show. She was able to connect us with Bravo TV executive, personality and Twitter expert Andy Cohen who provided us with an amazing video message that we used to promote the date of the ceremony and ticket sales. I look forward to working with Debbie in the future and there is no doubt that her future projects will be a success.”
