"Spend less time being interesting and more time being interested in people and the world" - Shira

From "On The Scene" to "What's Trending"

Posted on May 15th

I've been blogging and vlogging at CBSNews.com since September 2009.

Most of the time it was just me and my flipcam. My blog, On The Scene, gave me the opportunity to bring you on the scene quite literally with news makers and online influencers.

I got to interview everyone from Jamie Oliver, Demi Moore to Twitter founder Biz Stone and viral stars like Antoine Dodson and the infamous "Double Rainbow" man.

In the midst of it all, I began developing more of a show around the blog content I was doing called "What's Trending".

The idea was that it would be a live interactive show and blog that allowed me to take on everything from Internet memes to politics and pop culture.

A year and a half later, you can see the result of that HERE. The product doesn't just include me either. I have an amazing team who keep the blog and show running 24/7.

Of course, there's always you who inspire our stories, and us to push boundaries, listen and share. So thank you! I couldn't be more excited about this new adventure- I hope you are too.

Here are some great recent press clips about the show- enjoy!
