About

Welcome!

Photo of Susan Wright-BoucherI’m Susan Wright-Boucher. I started this blog in 2009 because I wanted to become more active in the online world. I had worked in recruitment for about fifteen years at that point, and I could see that social media was going to change the way we connected and how we did business.

Today I have three blogs and I do freelance work on other sites. I’m a big fan of mobile-first web design and I enjoy helping companies use social sites to build strong online communities.

Being creative, I spend a good part of my week doing graphics and illustrations. I like to try out all kinds of graphics and photo editing software like Inkscape, GIMP, Canva, and Pixlr—and other times I go right back to the basics and draw with pen and ink on paper. There’s a sample of my art at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this. You’re most welcome to leave a comment. I read every single one and I try my best to respond quickly.

Wishing you a great day ahead!

  1. Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger,
    and I was wondering your situation; we have
    created some nice procedures and we are looking to trade strategies with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for asking. WordPress.com uses Akismet. It’s excellent and it’s free. I don’t even have to moderate comments before they’re posted so my readers can view their contribution immediately instead of waiting for me to notice it and hit the ‘approve’ button. :)

  2. Great blog Susan! I taught social media here locally for a few years and spent years in the social media arena. Retired from it all last year to travel and spend time with family. Blogging is the only thing I do now and really enjoy it.

  5. Susan, in reviewing some of my own blog posts, I discovered that you had made a comment on one that I failed to respond to. Ironically, it was a post about empathy….

    As it is my usual practice to write a response to all the people who take the time to read and then write a comment on my blog, I just wanted to apologize for my oversight.
    Thank you for coming by. I hope you will come again.

  6. Susan, thanks for getting in touch on my blog, motivating me to check yours out. Now I’m going to have to spend my Sunday reading and learning from you!
    Vancouver B.C. holds a special place in my heart – I proposed to my wife there while teaching a workshop at UBC. We always said if we ever relocated, Vancouver was our top choice. What an amazingly beautiful place. Great city nestled between the ocean and mountains. Spectacular!

You are an inspiration. I’m glad that we are still in constant communication. You are one of the benefits of social networking!

    Best wishes,
