You may have noticed the blog looks
147 times better a little different; we made the move from Tumblr to WordPress as part of our reorganized content strategy to bring you more relevant news and tips about JouleBug and living a sustainable lifestyle. Here, we have comment, better social sharing options, and an actual post archive. Hooray!
We also added a new member to our team: me.
Hi! I’m Matt Morain and I’m in charge of minding the shop here at WordPress and across our other social platforms. I come to JouleBug from a PhD in Communication, Rhetoric & Digital Media at NC State, where I’ve been finishing my dissertation on rhetoric and internet memes.
You read that right. I’ve been studying memes, internet culture, and rhetoric for 5 years now and I nerd out over what motivates people to share stuff online. Obviously, this intersects with our mission at JouleBug of figuring out how to make sustainability fun in a mobile, social way.
We’ve got a lot of exciting irons in a lot of exciting fires, so y’all come back and see us soon to learn more!
