Susan is an active blogger as well. She began writing for the web in 1998 with her magazine devoted to Catholic musicians, GrapeVine. The magazine began as a downloadable PDF file and eventually became a hard copy published magazine. It then evolved into a very active blog, the one-stop connection for articles, CD and DVD reviews podcasts and videos related to Catholic music. GrapeVine was supported by top Catholic music industry members such as OCP, WLP and the Catholic Marketing Network. In 2009, Susan passed GrapeVine on to its new editor and owner, Jim Logue, Jr. of the Catholic Music Express podcast. A best-of collection of her articles can be found here.
