In September 2010, I became Vice President Sales Marketing for BlogHer Inc.,  however, Marketing Roadmaps is entirely my opinion, based on my experience. It does not represent the policies and positions of any employer – past, present or future.

Code of Ethics

Marketing Roadmaps is my opinion, based on my experience. Your mileage may vary. I will be respectful of my readers’ views, and expect the same courtesy.

  • When I have an opinion, I will be completely clear about it. You won’t have to guess.
  • I won’t delete posts unless the content proves to be completely off base, in which case I will leave a placeholder that explains what happened so search engines won’t perpetuate any mistakes I have made. Typically I will annotate the original post with new material rather than delete the post.
  • I will not blog information learned offline or in private conversations unless I am absolutely certain that it is public information or I have obtained permission from the person who shared the information. When in doubt I will err on the side of caution.
  • I will not delete comments unless they are spam or off-topic. Ditto trackbacks.
  • I will link and trackback to other blogs appropriately, and always endeavor to add to the conversation.
  • I will say thank you, replying to emails and comments promptly and pleasantly, even when I disagree with you.
  • I will be honest about my clients and relationships so my readers will understand my loyalties.
