It’s my first time, be gentle…

Okay so here’s the deal. I blog for work, I tweet for work, I tweet for me, I facebook, I myspace, I link-in… but I have never blogged personally.

I thought it would be an interesting experiment to try to blog. I do well with the 140 characters of Twitter… how will I do with a full blog?

We will see. I have promised myself I won’t resort to blogs full of quotes (okay, sometimes… I love quotes) or links or “I am brushing my teeth.”

So here’s some back story and expectations.

I am a 27 (nearly 28) year old Public Relations professional in Denver. I work in the non-profit arts sector and love my work. [So look for blogs about PR, social media, marketing, networking, arts, dance, theatre, film… etc.]

I am in grad school, working on my masters in PR & Marketing. [More PR & marketing stuff, plus school trials and tribs.]

My father is a rabbi (seriously, follow his blog – Rocky Mountain Hai. It rocks.) and so I do a lot of work in the Jewish community. [Yes folks, that means Judaism, Jewish holidays, Israel, and Israeli politics, etc.]

I volunteer for Goodwill in Denver and my sorority, Gamma Phi Beta. [You’ll hear about that I am sure. GPhi, volunteering, working with needy kids.]

I love yoga and am a bit of an addict. [Yup, you will hear when I master hurdler and if I fall out of my flying crow. Did I mention that birds of paradise is one of my favs? I’ll get ya a picture.]

Lastly, I think, I am obsessed with a few things.
A. Angela Lansbury is my hero (hence Talia, She Wrote).
B. Fred Astaire, Ginger Rodgers, Gene Kelly… most films made between 1930 and 1955.
C. Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (that means Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes, people)
D. Old radio shows. I love the old commercials… Petri Wine, Clipper Craft Clothing…
E. Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me (on NPR)
[All of the above, free game for blogs.]

Okay, one more thing… I am going to try to not delve too deeply into my personal like (aka dating) because, well, it’s personal and frankly, I know some people who would love to use that against me. But I have no doubt a few details will slip in. 🙂

Alright, enough level setting. Nice comments appreciated.

I hope this blog works out. It’s fun already!
