When it comes to blogging, The VAR Guy knows there's strength in numbers. That's why each of Nine Lives Media's IT channel communities -- The VAR Guy, Talkin' Cloud and MSPmentor -- continues to evolve with new voices. Readers ask all the time: Who are the most ideal editorial contacts for each site? Here are the answers -- including a few new names on our websites.

As Nine Lives Media has grown from its launch in 2008, The VAR Guy gradually blended experienced editors with up-and-coming bloggers who are social media experts. The lineup now includes:
  • The VAR Guy: Charlene O'Hanlon continues to oversee day-t0-day editorial content while contributing blogger David Courbanou remains on the leading edge of hot channel trends -- from mobility to security. And Christopher Tozzi continues to track open source and other disruptive technologies in the channel. Somewhere, hidden in the shadows, The VAR Guy also continues to pen his anonymous blog.
  • MSPmentor: Channel Insider veteran Jessica Davis joined us March 1, and she now oversees day-to-day editorial content. Dan Berthiaume covers SMB issues, John Moore covers vertical market opportunities, and Nicholas Mukhar continues his analysis from the heart of Silicon Valley.'
  • Talkin' Cloud: The expanding blogger lineup includes new voices such as Brian Taylor, Charles Costa and Christopher Arlotta. Check out Talkin' Cloud on March 7 for the debut of those new voices. Also, today was former contributing blogger Matt Weinberger's final day blogging on Talkin' Cloud and The VAR Guy wishes Matt well as he moves onto a new opportunity in Silicon Valley.
Each of our websites contains a contact page for our editorial and sales team members, including:
The VAR Guy's web managers will be updating those pages with some new bios in the days ahead. In the meantime, our resident blogger thanks you for your readership and continued feedback.
