“Mir’s writing is fresh, and she never misses a deadline. Her versatility and dependability are excellent.”
—Rita Arens, Assignment Editor at BlogHer and Editor of “Sleep Is for the Weak“

—Charlie Kondek, Director of New Media Relations, MS&L Digital
“Mir Kamin writes in a way that is elegant without being stuffy, intelligent without being inaccessible. Her thoughtful insights and smart observations are all tied together with a keen wit, reminding all of us, with great relief, that we’re not alone. Plain and simple, Mir is a smart, funny read.”
—Karen Walrond, author of “The Beauty of Different” and the award-winning blog chookooloonks.com
“Miriam is an engaging and down-to-earth speaker who inspired my students with her success and shared generously her knowledge about launching a profitable blog.”

“Mir is a pro through and through. In the blog world when posts are sometimes assigned 5 minutes after they were due, I can always count on her to come through with something clever, creative and crisp. Her headlines make me smile and her copy resonates with personality. Oh, and she gets SEO too. Triple threat.”
—Liz Gumbinner, co-founder and editor, Cool Mom Picks
