Meet Grandma Mary
I originally started my blog as Grandma Mary – Social Media Edutainer in 2009.
When I was trying to learn about Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn (back in my day there were only 4 social media channels) to market my in-home wine tasting business, I noticed that there were a lot of BORING tutorials out there. Not to mention incomplete information with too-cool dudes trying to use as many acronyms as possible.
So I decided to create the type of content I wanted to see. Fun entertaining videos that were very useful. I decided to blog as one of my Improv Comedy characters, Grandma Mary.
Grandma Mary’s inspirational phrase was “If Grandma Mary can do it, you can do it, too.”
I had a ton of fun making videos and doing interviews but eventually decided that Grandma Mary was going to retire because it got a little overwhelming to keep up two channels of information. And I also joked that I started to need her glasses.
Now I use Standup comedy as one of my main creative and fun outlets. But I still like to dress up and wear wigs from time to time 😄
