About our Moderator

About the Panelists:
Holly Homer is a blogger. Of the mom variety. Three years ago, she founded Business 2 Blogger with two other local bloggers as a protest to the "cold email" pitch in a desperate attempt to empty her inbox. This lead to designing, managing and participating in many blogger-lead communities, online influencer programs, brand ambassadorships and blogger events. She remains the stay at home mom of three boys living in the Dallas suburbs. In spite of all that June Cleaver bliss, you are much more likely to find her at a poker table than in the kitchen.
Rachel Pinn is an ad agency copywriter and associate creative director by day and a freelance food writer and blogger at mealtimes. She has written for local sites like in-this-economy.com and ILiveinDallas.com, and currently contributes to the Dallas Observer City of Ate blog. Her recipe for good eating and good reading? Take a large passion for all things culinary, add a pinch of food snobbery and combine with a witty writing style. She serves it straight up.
A mom of two from Dallas, Texas, Amy publishes Living Locurto, a top lifestyle blog focused on crafts and entertaining. She designs a line of whimsical party collections and stationery at Printables by Amy. Amy is also co-founder of I Heart Faces, an award-winning photography website with photo challenges, free photography tutorials and a photography forum with over 15,000 members. She collaborates with companies on creative content for magazines, websites, TV spots, webisodes, and new product lines and works as a spokesperson and freelance creative contributor for brands.
