I am a DC Social Media Examiner on Examiner.com, so you must be a resident of Washington, DC, to have your profile included in my DC column.

If you are not a resident of DC, then your profile will live here on the Ms. Social Media blog and/or be included on my other blogs, like the My Question of the Day blog. On each profile of a DC blogger in my Examiner.com column, there will be a link back to my site(s) for people to see other blog profiles, so you will get exposure, even if you don't appear in my DC Social Media Examiner column.

ALL FIELDS ARE REQUIRED.

If anything does not apply, type N/A in that field.
