About Us



Jimmy Buff of Radio Woodstock WDST 100.1 and Vanessa Ahern of Hudson Valley Good Stuff

In August of 2014 I moved from the Hudson Valley, and I haven’t been able to cover all the events that I once did. If you are interested in buying the Hudson Valley Good Stuff blog, please email me at vanessa@hudsonvalleygoodstuff.com. See my For Sale Announcement here! 

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 write 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.

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, please visit my writing website VanessaGenevaAhern. I have been a full time freelance writer since 2002. I became a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors in 2006.
