Mary Jaksch

A-List Blogging is my brainchild. I’m the blogger behind WritetoDone.com – the leading blog for writers on the Net with over 50,000 subscribers – as well as Goodlife ZEN, a self-development blog with over 30,000 subscribers.

Over the last 5 years, blogging has become my passion. It took a lot of work to figure out how blogging works (as there were no training sites like this when I started), but once I understood the principles and key strategies of blogging, it took me only nine months to create a six-figure business.

Nothing gives me more pleasure than helping other bloggers to succeed!

There are some other sides to my life, apart from blogging. My print book, Learn to Love, has been translated into eight different languages. I’m an authorized  Zen master and psychotherapist. I’m in active karate training and hold a 4th Degree Black Belt. I also love dancing Argentine tango in skimpy dresses.

The Content Team

Sarah O’Leary, Assistant Instructor

I’m a  veteran A-Lister with multiple passions, and have worn many hats:  herbalist, retail store owner, journalist, editor, business consultant, storyteller, blogger, women’s advocate, and life and wellness coach. My blog, Holistic Hot Sauce, is about unleashing the power of women. In addition to my work here at A-List, I volunteer as an Editorial Mentor for World Pulse – an organization that trains women from war-torn and impoverished countries to become citizen journalists.

I can frequently be spotted pedaling my bicycle through the streets of my new hometown, Portland, Oregon.


Vinita Zutshi, Content Editor

I juggle writing, editing, storytelling, recording, and coaching for parents.

As Content Editor, I work with the structure, format and content of each piece of writing to make sure it is balanced, clear and comprehensible. I also copy-edit and proofread. I’m Guest Post Editor at www.writetodone.com, and live (for the moment) in New Delhi. Working with the wonderful A-List team puts a sparkle in my eye and a smile on my face every time!



Miraz Jordan

I love language and words; simplicity. Science and technology intrigue and excite me. I write – a lot: blogs, articles, columns, tutorials. I write the daily Tech Universe column for the NZ Herald Online, books, websites such as Run Spot Run, manuals and training materials.

I often spend a few days every couple of weeks in the country, by the sea and offline. I love living in Aotearoa, New Zealand, where it’s always the future, even if it is just an accident of time zones.


The Technical Team

Webmaster: Lodewijk van den Broek

I’m a founding member of A-List Blogging. My speciality is to create e-learning training courses for large companies. I continue to look after Mary’s blogs because she’s someone who always pushes the envelope.

Developer: Conor Woods

I am an experienced WordPress developer who can help with the more technical aspects of getting your site online and subsequent performance and theme changes. I have years of experience with both single and multisite WordPress installations and pride myself on being trustworthy and efficient.
