I do, however, think of Martha often because of a short but impactful conversation I had with her on the way to the Consumer Electronics Show many years ago. I spotted her at JFK airport walking alone down an aisle pulling her wheelie.
I asked her why she was traveling without an entourage. She was surprised by my question. “I am just a ‘working girl’ going to CES to seek out the latest in innovation.” In just the few minutes we spoke, Martha admitted to me she was driven by her “curious” mind.
I instantly became very jealous of her. She was “curious” and was doing something about it. How many of us get “curious” about a topic and never do anything?
Now some 20 years later, Martha is still as “curious” as ever. She is in her late 60s but seems ageless as she keeps reinventing herself over and over. She showed up this weekend to give a keynote speech at Blogher, a 5,000 mom, garden and food blogger conference in New York City.
“I love Twitter,” Martha told the crowd. “It just made sense to me.”
In addition to being a whiz on Twitter, Martha Stewart has amassed a huge following on Pinterest, with more than 80,000 followers. Andrea asked her, “So how does the master of all things domestic also master the digital?” Please watch the video to find out.
