That’s not necessarily effectiveness,’ says New York City’s Maegan Carberry, 29, who left her journalism job for a more patchwork path of blogging for sites like the Huffington Post, cohosting a radio program for BlogTalkRadio, founding the microblog Truu Confessions, and writing a book on millennial communication.
“‘We want to do things differently.'”
