A respected thought-leader on the Internet's impact on business, media and society, Rebecca Blood is an internationally known speaker and one of the world's most cited authorities on blogging. She is the author of The Weblog Handbook, which has been called "the Strunk & White of blogging books". It was chosen by Amazon as one of the 10 best books on digital culture in 2002, and has been translated into 5 languages. She has been featured in the New York Times, Newsweek, Fast Company, the BBC, and National Public Radio and profiled by Time magazine. Her weblog is Rebecca's Pocket. She lives in San Francisco.
In addition to her book, Ms. Blood has written a number of essays (called "critically important" by Jay Rosen) on the theory and practice of weblogs and the intersection between blogging and journalism. Her work has been used in university courses around the world. She has been invited to write for the prestigious academic journals the Nieman Reports and Communications of the ACM. Ms. Blood has spoken for diverse groups, ranging from digerati and journalists to academics and Fortune 250 executives. In 2003, the UK's Web User named her one of the Web's "Hot Faces" (right between Beck and Bowie), and Sweden's Internet World ranked her as one of the world's Top Ten Bloggers. She was once Goth Babe of the Week.
