Why I feed my addiction to Facebook and how it made me better at my job.

Okay, I don’t have an addictive personality BUT I am totally easy prey when it comes to social networking. I don’t know why. I never got addicted to smoking or drinking or anything… except social networking. I mean to the point where I check it on my phone at night in bed and tweet “Good morning, Tweeps” in the morning. On the surface, you may think that seems sick but it gets worse. I manage accounts all over the social networking world for various groups that I represent. That means that more......

Just when I thought it was safe…

So I posted yesterday about so-called “new media experts” and I stand by what I said but my butt was totally saved today but an SEO expert and I am feeling some remorse. His website is http://www.ronmedlin.com and his name is (oddly enough ;-)) Ron. He walked me through optimizing our school website. All because I sent a twitter SOS! So, yes, the glut of “new media experts” still disturbs me but Ron Medlin gave me hope that there are really people out there with more knowledge than I on these subjects.......

Have you noticed that everyone is now an expert?

Maybe not… if you don’t live in the social networking/new media world, like I do. I noticed the glut of “new media experts” on twitter. Nearly all of my nearly 600 following/followers has some connection with social media/new media/etc. And everyone is an expert or offering workshops or chances to maximize my networking ability. Cool. I want to do that. I want to learn how to use Facebook and Twitter and Yelp and blogs to it’s highest capacity to do my job and promote my company… So I go to workshops… I’ve......

Broomfield Chamber Business After Hours and what I learned

It is HARD to get food donated in a recession but people are really nice and want to help. Restaurants change GMs like I change purses… In fact, one time, I called on a monday and got one guy and called the next day and got a new GM… grrreat! Beer is harder to get donated in a recession! (Come on people, keep drinking, the microbrews need your support!) Eldorado Water, Red Robin at Flatirons, California Pizza Kitchen at Flatirons mall, El Jimador on 84th and Huron, Old Chicago’s in Broomfield, and......

Ben and Jerry’s

Okay, I don’t want to post a ton of “funny things you get on email” here but this one is just too cool. I don’t know if it actually happened but these names are hilarious! Some of these are really creative! Ben & Jerry created “Yes Pecan!” ice cream flavor for Obama. For George W. they asked for suggestions from the public. Here are some of their favorite responses:– Grape Depression– The Housing Crunch– Abu Grape– Cluster Fudge– Nut’n Accomplished– Good Riddance You Lousy Motherfucker… Swirl– Iraqi Road– Chock ‘n Awe– WireTapioca–......

Sherlock Holmes ala Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce

Okay, so a stated previously, I LOVE Sherlock Holmes. My dad even got an autographed copy of the complete works… which I thought was totally cool until I realized two things – A. #1. It was signed, “To Talia…. Sincerely, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle” and he has been dead for oh, I don’t know… 50 years? B. #2. It was totally my dad’s handwriting. But that did make it kinda more cool, that my dad would do that for me. Anywho, so I was watching a little late night TV the other......

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......
