A Day In The Life Of Alexia Tsotsis, Startup Scribe Of Silicon Valley

Just a few years ago, Alexia Tsotsis got her dream job — a reporter at TechCrunch, one of the top technology sites in Silicon Valley.

Now she’s running the show with co-editor Eric Eldon, and they’ve staffed it up with a ton of new writers.

The tech reporting scene is cutthroat and takes some of the best talent to stay ahead of the curve. But it’s often pretty easy to forget that there are still personalities behind those dozens of posts that flood the Internet every day.

So we caught up with Tsotsis to find out what it is exactly like in the life of a Silicon Valley blogger at TechCrunch.

My day usually starts at 8:30am, when I wake up and immediately open my laptop to check email, our company Yammer, Skype, Techmeme and of course TechCrunch (I'm actually wearing a commemorative shirt from the TechCrunch Disrupt where we announced the Aol sale in this pic). My Skype lights up like a Christmas tree the moment I log on.
