Mena

My name's Mena Trott and I've been blogging in various forms since 2001. I co-founded Six Apart (now SAY Media) with my husband around that same time. I've spoken at things like TED, D: All Things Digital Conference, SXSW and Blogher. Media-wise, I shared a cover of Fortune magazine with a few other blogging folks and even had a Wall Street Journal piece written about our company (with a woodcut illustration and all!) While I don't have a day-to-day role at SAY, I'm still active as a member of the board. Nowadays, I'm a stay-at-home mom raising a three-year old named Penelope in San Francisco.
