The online world is a wonderful and exciting place but …

Social media networks change constantly and so do blogging platforms. About the time you figure out one area, another one (or two or ten) change and leave you flustered and frustrated. Or what my family calls,


You need someone who can keep up with the changes, translate the techie jargon, and then show you what to do.

Or do it FOR you!

Good news — you’ve found her!

I’m Susan Stilwell and I can help

“un-flustrate” you.

I work with writers, entrepreneurs and ministry leaders to identify needs and create manageable action steps so they can move ahead with their projects.

The things that exasperate you energize me!


I have a degree in Computer Science from way back in the stone age when Java was coffee and we used punch cards to program on bare metal. I worked several years in applications programming and systems support. In recent years I’ve helped friends start blogs and navigate the social media jungle.

Now I help influencers like you navigate the changes in social media and keep their online presence relevant and fresh.

So I’m kind of a nerd.

I subscribe to a variety of technology and social media management sites. Each month I read dozens of posts and articles, and listen to I-don’t-know-how-many hours of industry podcasts. I also work with the uh-MAY-zing Dan King at Fistbump Media who’s way nerdier than me, and I mean that as the highest possible compliment.

I love helping people get excited about their projects again.

Collaborating works.

Besides my expertise, working with me connects you to my expanding network of resources, which includes some amazing REAL LIVE PEOPLE. In addition, and this is one of the best things IMO, your name goes into my prayer journal.

First, join my mailing list.

Subscribers are the first to get the news!

I post an inspirational message on the blog at the beginning of each month. My newsletter will be delivered hot and fresh to your inbox around the 15th. Please know how much I value my subscribers’ privacy and will never share your information with anyone.

Next, connect with me on social media and join the conversations.

I write articles and share informative links for writers and leaders of all levels. I also work for Fistbump Media, and we have lots of services tailored specifically for writers.

When you’re ready to move ahead

with your project or website changes, contact me to schedule a FREE 15 minute consultation. Once we agree on a time, I’ll send you a questionnaire so I can do a little research to make the best use of those 15 minutes.

I’d love to hear about your journey and where you’d like to go next.

In case you’re interested…

I have the world’s best family.

I’ve been married for 28 years to a wonderfully patient man and we have two fine grown children. We recently welcomed a talented son-in-love into the family. He’s an Army officer, which means we don’t get to see them as much as we’d like.

I’m passionate about God’s Word.

I teach in the adult discipleship ministry of First Roanoke and speak at women’s events. I’m a trained Precept Ministries leader and a voracious scripture memorizer. (I’m seriously hoping it will prevent dementia.)

Seven random things I might tell you

  1. I’m an associate hospital chaplain. Nothing gets me out of the dumps quicker than visiting and praying with sick people.
  2. I love country music and wish Vince Gill would record an EP with Allison Krauss or Emmylou Harris.
  3. I’ve been to Israel five times and love it almost as much as I love Virginia.
  4. My dad is a bi-vocational Baptist minister. He’s also my hero.
  5. My favorite (non-biblical) person in history: Robert E. Lee
  6. If I could choose my last supper, it’d be nachos.
  7. My favorite chant: LETS GO … HOKIES!

My life verse and benediction

May the God of hope
fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust Him
so you may abound with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
~Romans 15:13
