Check out Jamie’s interview on CabCo Collective as she shares what it’s like to be the CW’s Head Blogger.
CabCo Collective is a new podcast created by friends Amanda Wortman and Caitlin Fontaine who are both active in the community. They recently launched their new endeavor and interviewed our Head Blogger, Jamie Richardson, for their third episode.
- “I wasn’t a blogger or writer prior to this,” said Richardson in her interview. “It was great to realize that I have this skill. I’ve done social media content, but not full articles.”
Jamie considers herself an introverted extrovert, but that hasn’t stopped her from telling some great stories behind our CabCo businesses. “I haven’t been to one place where I haven’t been fascinated by the story behind the business.”
