Starshine Roshell, award-winning journalist, nationally syndicated columnist and author, was on the Wild Web Women Show for a confession session with Lorrie Thomas.
Be sure to listen to the show to hear Starshine’s Wild Web Women advice and to find out why she loves sending images with emails and why she recommends marrying a Graphic Designer.
1. How do you use the web to help other people?
“I retweet and share FB posts from friends and acquaintances who are doing cool stuff that I think my friends and fans would want to know about, whether it’s free fitness classes or cupcake specials (or free fitness classes BECAUSE of too many cupcake specials).”
2. What is your #1 piece of “wild web woman” advice you want to give?
“Marry a graphic designer. And be very, very good to him.”
3. What’s the most valuable thing you have learned as a web woman?
“That if you can attach a JPG, you can rule the world.”
4. Besides email, what is the one web tool you cannot live without?
“Facebook. I use it to solicit quotes for all of my columns. I “friend” funny people and then beg them for hilarious quips.”
5. What is your favorite Offline activity?
“Eating tablespoons of peanut butter coated in chocolate chips, while standing at the kitchen counter.”
