The company incorporated in 2010 and sent its first post to a customer in August, 2011. We work from downtown Boulder, but we are technically a Delaware corporation. We have customers around the world, but our writers must live in the US and pay taxes here. We have hundreds of writers now from all 50 US states.
About our philosophy
"We work like a dog to fill up your blog!" It's our tagline, and it's the heart of who we are.
About our team
Scott attends to the business side of BlogMutt, and has done so at two other companies. The first time was with MyTrafficNews, a company that sold to Traffic.com in 2006. He then worked on LegislativeDatabase and returned a positive investment to the initial investors. Before starting his startup life, Scott was an award-winning writer in New York and Colorado, so he has a special connection with the needs and peculiarities of writers.
Wade, the tech leader at BlogMutt, has been a fixture in the tech scene in Boulder for years. He started out as a tech puppy working for Accenture, and moved on to various technical consulting roles in telecom before joining a startup in 2000. Wade later worked with Scott on MyTrafficNews and LegislativeDatabase, with a stint at Abacus/Epsilon in between.
For things to work well in any organization, you need one person who can get everything done that doesn't fit neatly in a job description. That's Courtney, the one who Gets It Done. She interacts with customers, writers, and passers-by, all with lightning speed, striking professionalism and a disarming smile. And if you are in need of some conversation about Sophocles, a king-side gambit, or tricks for home-made pasta, stop by.
Patrick is our Director of Marketing. He comes to BlogMutt with a wealth of agency experience, but he has a desire to build up a brand that he can truly own, and he's doing that now. He spends his time outside BlogMutt running the Front Range, following Arsenal Football Club, volunteering, and staying connected to his Midwestern roots by watching Wisconsin sports.
Grace is our Editorial Specialist. She works with writers to ensure that all customers get the posts they need every week. She impressed us with her Ninja-like facility with compound modifiers and knowledge of Cuban literature. She came to Boulder from New England not just for BlogMutt, but to live in a town with lots of mountain climbing opportunities.
Rachel is part of our development team, helping add new features to make the BlogMutt site even better for writers and customers. She's a graduate of the Galvanize code school, and before that she was a Polysomnography Tech, which she could tell you about but it might put you to sleep. She was born in Canada, but she's a Coloradan now.
Kali Greff is our Sales and Marketing Specialist. If you are thinking about becoming a BlogMutt customer, chances are Kali will be the one answering your questions (sometimes before you know they are questions). While she's in sales, she's a real BlogMutt personality having been an excellent student journalist in Ohio before she returned to her home state of Colorado. She can also wow you with her Henry the Eighth trivia.
BlogMutt closed a seed funding round in 2012 from a suite of sweet investors, nearly all of them operating CEOs who understand the tremendous opportunity that exists in the world of helping busy businesses. Investors include Jim Franklin, CEO of SendGrid, Jon Nordmark, of Iterate Studio and formerly of eBags, Tom Phillips, CEO of Dstillery, and others with expertise in finance, accounting, small business and more. We are not currently fundraising, and have been cash flow positive since the spring of 2013.
