Hi - I'm Maria, nice to meet you! I've been a Contributing Editor here at BlogHer.com since 2006. I joined BlogHer as a full-time staff member after running my own consulting firm called ConsumerPop for five years. I am now working as Director of
Project Management, Product Marketing, Client Services. I've written about a wide variety of topics from business to politics to pop culture for BlogHer and occasionally do the same at my personal blog PopConsumer. You can also find me and links to my various online homes at MariaNiles.com.
