My name is Vanessa Ahern. In January 2009, I created HudsonValleyGoodStuff.com, to share “good stuff” discoveries I have made since moving here from Manhattan in 2003. I only blog about "Good Stuff" I find in the Hudson Valley. If I'm not happy with a restaurant or entertainment experience, I don't write about it. All the opinions on this blog are my own.
Due to the site's growing popularity, local businesses have started asking if HVGS offers advertising opportunities, and the answer is YES! Check out Hudson Valley Good Stuff's Advertising section and read our testimonials too. Thanks to HVGS I have met lots of cool people who call the Hudson Valley their home or weekend escape.
In December of 2012 the Chronogram invited me to blog for their Daily Dose blog. You can visit Hudson Valley Good Stuff's Chronogram archives here.
If you want to learn more about me, or have a writing project you think I could help you with, please visit my writing website GirlGumption.com. I have been a full time freelance writer since 2002. I became a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors in 2006. In 2012 Hudson Valley Good Stuff joined the Woodstock Chamber of Arts and Commerce.
If you find out about a great restaurant, store, business through HVGS, please let them know how you found out about it, and spread the word about Hudson Valley Good Stuff.
