Inviting friend after friend to join this "crazy idea" that moms would want to write about parenting experiences in their regional area, Jill has watched Silicon Valley Moms Group blossom to over eleven collaborative blogging communities and 350+ contributors. Jill Asher handles PR, Marketing, Community Development and Outreach for SVMoms Group. Jill Asher also consults with companies on social media strategy, blogger outreach and content creation.
