Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Ms. Tinu Takes Over as WGB Editor


Ye faithful WGB readers, thank you for sticking with us the last couple of weeks! I know some of you have been scratching your heads, wondering where, oh where, did your content go?

We didn’t fall into a black hole, exactly, but as we were undergoing the editorial transition, we… ok, we fell into a black hole.

I’m sorry! We’ll try to do better the next time!

But we’re back now and I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to tell you that effective immediately, Tinu Abayomi-Paul is the new editor of Women Grow Business.

Tinu really needs no introduction. She’s been a stalwart of the WGB community from Day 1, not just with her terrific blog contributions, but has brought tremendous value to our community via last year’s Women Grow Business bootcamp, her regular participation in our monthly Twitter chats as well as other social properties, and, all in all, is just the bee’s knees.

(Do bees have knees? If they did, and assuming they were fantabulous, them’s Tinu for you.)

Here’s her official bio:

Tinu rescues web sites from obscurity and shows business people how to generate leads and traffic from the web. Founder of Free Traffic Tips and Ask Tinu, she is widely published online as an ever effective, end-to-end website promotion specialist — on Web Pro News, Search Engine Guide, and more. Ready to engage on Twitter as @tinu, she’s known to say: “You can’t knock my hustle.”

But really, Tinu is so much more than that, and I can’t wait to see the new heights she will take Women Grow Business to.

Please do join me in congratulating and welcoming your new editor – Tinu Abayomi-Paul!

Former Women Grow Business editor Shonali Burke is the award-winning principal of Shonali Burke Consulting, where she turns your communication conundrums into community cool. Adjunct faculty for Johns Hopkins’ MA/Communication program, she publishes Waxing UnLyrical under the watchful eyes of Chuck, Suzy Q. and Lola, her three rescue dogs. Her long-suffering husband has accepted that Shonali can most often be found on Twitter.

  1. Thank you so much for the warm welcome, shonali , and everything you and jillfoster have done for our wonderful community. Just about every one of the contributors has sent me a nice hello or congratulatory message, and there are even articles already waiting to be sent through. Plus two new staff submissions today. You two have built something great. And I hope I can do it justice. Don’t think I’m letting either of you wander off, either!

  2. Go @Tinu Go! Congrats ongoing. Thanks again for being such a tremendous business voice and supporter here since the early days. I look forward, heartily, to how all of your strengths will grow WGB as editor.

    • Thank you @Jillfoster – I’m always learning so much from you, so often. That tells me that I’ll be fine. Just have to rise to the level of my mentors and keep the focus on the wonderful community. 🙂

  3. Awesome news. What a group of editors – from jillfoster to shonali and now to @Tinu – That is an awesome group. Congrats to each of you for building such a great resource and site! I look forward to WGBIZ growing even more and growing on the massive success that Jill & Shonali have delivered. Need a wgbiz meetup/party/happy hour soon!

    • A meetup is a great idea. We should talk. @KikScore jillfoster shonali – and you’re right, these ladies have given me an incredibly solid foundation to build on. So much great, on-going advice. Couldn’t have two better mentors for this – trying to be careful not to annoy them with all my newbie questions!
