Amanda Congdon's road show

Amanda Congdon is out to prove that there's life after Rocketboom.

Congdon, you may recall, this summer as its popular host after an acrimonious breakup with its founder. Since then, she's decided to take her career on the road with something called "Amanda Across America."

The sponsored, five-week journey from New York to Los Angeles is designed to promote "green" issues (as well as herself, presumably). Congdon is chronicling her trek, which will include interviews with politicians and environmentalists, on Blip.tv, MySpace, Flickr, Wikia and probably a bunch of other places we don't know about. As of this writing, she's in the nation's capital.

Rocketboom wasted little time in , but the jury is still out on whether it will achieve the popularity it had with its previous host. In the meantime, Congdon's facile use of social networks and grassroots media shows that, more than ever, anyone can be a star.
