Great topic Alex! This is the EDC that we don't see.
We do try to present profession as a key complement to the gear posted on this site! After all, without knowing what the gear is used for, it's hard to appreciate it to its fullest. Do you feel that component of the site's content could be improved upon? Because that leads into my full-time job as og founder and editor-in-chief of this site!
I wear a lot of hats here — but almost everything you see content-wise goes through my hands in one way or another. I provide a general creative direction for the site. Within the site itself that involves brainstorming and planning new articles (most recently, revamping the Carry Smarters series of posts for more informational/how-to type content), curating the best submissions, and scoping out cool new products to cover. So to produce that content I need to write, edit, shoot photos, do graphic design stuff, some html… It's tough and I can't do it alone, I have a small but growing number of contributors helping me out, so that means I also have to manage, direct, edit, and provide feedback for those guys so we can keep pumping out fire content.
But the work doesn't end there, as co-founder I also play community manager, managing/planning/producing all social media content on twitter, instagram, tumblr, vine, etc., as well as doing email newsletters throughout the week. On top of that, I communicate with brands and other important people for research purposes, creating opportunities for new content and reviews for the site, or new interviews too.
There's plenty more but aside from all that I also play that little voice in the corner that can relay information about what our readers are responding to back to Dan and his tech development team, or to our other cofounder about how to market and spread EDC to more and more people. It's challenging, but that's how a startup is — and I thank all of you for helping us get this far. I'm grateful every day to see what a little tumblr blog has turned into!
