Heidi Gollub

2015 Speaker

HEIDI GOLLUB started Free Fun in Austin in 2010 as a way to get out of doing housework. Her theory was that running five kids all over town on adventures for material to write about was a pretty awesome excuse for not doing laundry. Since then, the website has been voted Best Hyperlocal Blog, Best Local Blog in The Austin Chronicle’s Best of Austin readers’ poll, was honored at The Statesman Social Media Awards, and has repeatedly been named Best Website by Austin Family magazine. Gollub’s work on Free Fun in Austin has also led to other fun gigs, like partnering with two local news stations and working as a True Local expert for the Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau. @freefuninaustin
