My guest today is Jory Des Jardins, the co-founder of BlogHer and general social media strategist. Jory got her start at Penguin a traditional print media company, but soon found her voice and passion in blogging. She has since sold BlogHer and focused on working in an advisory capacity.  Although she is still creating content as well.
