Hello! I’m a journalist, blogger, geek and recovering web entrepreneur. I run Miramus, a digital media company that helps brands to win at the internet. I’ve got two children, and a very nice husband who writes and illustrates children’s books. I’m a weekend hippy and own a woodland in Kent.
My current/recent major clients include Unilever, Fashot, Yahoo! Europe, Pfizer, AOL UK, and Marks & Spencer. I’ve written for all the major newspapers (and some of the not so major ones) and I had a regular column in Look Magazine, Indy on Sunday Mag and (my favourite gig of all time) Custom PC magazine.
For fun, I also edit Dork Adore, a haven for geeks.
Here’s more from my LinkedIn profile:
In 2008, Katie was voted one of London’s 1000 most influential people by the Evening Standard. And in 2009 Revolution magazine voted her one of 50 To Watch in Digital.
Previously, Katie co-founded Shiny Media in 2004, the UK’s biggest and most successful blog network. The company took £1m investment in 2005, launching over 35 blogs in the fashion, technology, games, lifestyle and sport sectors.
She managed a team of 11 in-house writers, and over 50 freelance bloggers producing some of the best British blogs on the web, including Catwalk Queen, Shiny Shiny, Tech Digest, Bridalwave and TV Scoop. She also produced blogs for clients, including Top Shop takeover, River Island’s Graduate Fashion Week blog and AOL’s personal finance blog, WalletPop.
As a journalist, Katie has written for most of the major newspapers, producing a regular column for Look, Woman & Home and the Telegraph blog. She was the founding editor of Shiny Shiny – the first (ever?) gadgets site for women.
When she’s not on the internet, she’s camping or making yet another crochet blanket in front of the TV. And then she blogs about it on her crochet blog, Good Hooking (now here on Katielee.co.uk)
