Announcing the Newest Social Media Prince

Many of you have asked where I’ve been over the past few months.   I recently wrapped up writing a book on social media marketing for individuals to large businesses entitled The New Community Rules (Amazon link) and the book is slated for a late June/early July release.

But in even bigger news, two weeks ago today, I gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Announcing… David Jacob Weinberg!

Little David (who is named after my beloved Grandpa David) has been a bundle of joy so far (and a handful as well, but when are newborns not?!).

Thank you to all my internet friends for your outpouring of support (especially in light of the tweet I sent less than an hour after my son was born); I did so while the doctor was yelling at me NOT to use the phone … but who am I to listen when I was so excited to share such news? And in case you are wondering, my good friend Sam has set up a gift drive, a totally unexpected but appreciated gesture. Thanks Sam — and thanks to those who have contributed!

Hopefully we’ll see little David on social media sites in the upcoming months. :)

Tamar Weinberg is a hustler and juggler. She is the VP of Marketing at Ruxly Creative, a creative marketing agency. She's the Director of Sales at Internet Marketing Ninjas, a 100+ employee search engine marketing agency located in upstate New York. She also rocks global sales at financial media publication Wall St. Cheat Sheet. Finally, she is the Chief Strategy Officer of Small Business Trends. Oh wait, and she's also the community manager at Namecheap. Yeah, like a boss.

    Mazal Tov, mom! He’s beautiful. Wow, a baby and a book. You’ve had a busy year. I look forward to getting a copy.

    I am so pleased. Congrats and you both you look lovely. It’s never an easy gig, but I hope you have a delightful time of it where you can.

    Everyone’s advice is suspect. Just do what feels right. Don’t let yourself suffer too long (should suffering happen).

    You’re good people.

    Mazal Tov. David looks like such a mench already ;)
    Don’t worry about all the mishegass going on. It’s only until you get used to the routine. There is nothing better then the having your baby in your arms as we can tell by the smile in the picture.
    The name you choose for your son is also very nice. Just read the post on your grandfather and I can see why you choose such a nice name to honor such a great man.
    All the best to you and your family.
    Enjoy every minute :)
