Karen Wickre Leaves Google After Nine Years of Guiding Corporate Blogs

Karen Wickre moves on after guiding blogs at Google for nine years.

Pamela Parker discusses Wickre's contributions to Google's corporate blogging efforts

"Wickre (along with Googler Nate Tyler) was behind Google's move into blogging, beginning with the Official Google Blog in 2004. Now, the company communicates via more than 70 blogs...Everything published gets read by others — people on the immediate team as well as a PR person — before it’s posted, but Wickre says the team tries not to 'wordsmith [a post] to death.'"

Danny Sullivan interviewed Karen Wickre back in 2007.

Update: And now Ms. Wickre has joined Twitter!
