Aliza Earnshaw: Bye Bye Portland Business Journal, Hello AboutUs
When you name business publications in the Portland area, the Portland Business Journal is likely right up there at the top. It tends to be the go-to resource for small businesses here in town. And, for the past 8 years, Aliza Earnshaw has been working the local beat, writing about what’s happening in Portland.
Well, you write about enough small tech businesses and startups long enough and suddenly you want to join them.
Which is exactly what happened with Aliza. She’s announced that she is joining AboutUs as the Editor-in-Chief for the burgeoning “Wikipedia of Web sites.”
I’ve had the opportunity to work with Aliza over the years in my various corporate communications roles—like MedicaLogic and ProSight. I’m looking forward to seeing how she leverages her impressive journalistic chops in this new role.
Aliza’s last day at PBJ will be tomorrow. She begins at AboutUs, next month.
Your first writing job at the new gig, Aliza? Building out your AboutUs page, of course.
