Last week marked a milestone in Spend Matters' five-year history: We hired our first full-time editorial and marketing resource, Sheena Moore. Sheena, who has a background in advertising and copyediting, will be contributing her skills in a variety of ways to both Spend Matters and our sister publication, MetalMiner, as we continue to scale and grow our business models. Having survived (and sometimes even thrived!) in a large advertising agency earlier in her career, we have no doubt she'll be right at home in the chaos that often is procurement (and most certainly the environment of two fast-growing blogs and research sites covering the subject). After a few days on the job, I asked Sheena to share a few thoughts on her maiden experience with our content corner of the enterprise universe. Here’s what she had to say:
"Stop beginning your sentences with prepositions!" Sheena suggested. "I'm also extremely excited to be the grammar police around here, and more importantly, an integral part of this growing venture. Both Spend Matters and MetalMiner are completely new arenas for me, content-wise, and I can't wait to work with the best, dive in, and learn something new."
Please join me in welcoming Sheena Moore to Spend Matters. I'll sleep easier at night knowing the blog is in the able hands of someone whose job it is to care about it as much as I do. This may sound like a small thing, but for someone who has already written over a million words so far on these virtual pages, it's quite important indeed.
