About Jared

I'm founder over at BlurtAbout - the topic-based social network that makes thoughts count. Blurting is the fastest way to share image, text, and rating about a topic. Users make a lasting impact by influencing the topic's overall score. You can now follow topics that interest you and get top blurts on your home feed. Instead of having to search for content you care about, we deliver it to you in one aggregated feed.

I bring a strong network of entrepreneurs and individuals with experience in the startup world. In terms of my role, I am currently wearing all the hats at BlurtAbout. I'm doing the UX and working with a contracted designer on the new version as well. Although I take on more of a biz dev role along with doing the UX, I'm also taking on our social media presence and marketing campaigns (including Facebook ads and Google Adwords).

Bottomline: I'm a solo founder doing whatever it takes to get the job done. I've funded this project with my own savings, and I believe in the project. Looking to take this BIG idea, and turn it into an awesome reality.

I'm looking for a developer to jump on the project and help me take BlurtAbout to the next level. I have contacts at many of the west coast based accelerators, including TechStars and LaunchpadLA. It's been reiterated to me that once the right technical member jumps on board, the company would be ready to join one of these excellent programs. To be honest, I've put a ton of money, sweat, and energy into this project, and I (as well as SoftLayer) believe that this company has the potential to be successful in a major way. Looking to do big things, and do it the right way.
