I’ve been working on a personal website for some time now. A site that I can be proud of and that, hopefully, reflects my professional life in a cohesive and polished way. This blog has long been my place to write, share and process all sorts of information but it’s time for a change.
Starting this week, my #GSD (Get Shit Done) series and the Weekend Reads will be published from my new site. If you receive my posts via RSS feed or email, you’ll need to update or resubscribe quickly! Everything you need can be found on the blog page of my site. Just scroll down a bit and you’ll see I set up RSS feeds and email subscriptions for each set of posts for you to make it super easy. And if you don’t already subscribe to my posts, can I ask you to consider doing so? Plug me into your Feedly or invite me into your inbox – I promise not to disappoint you. (And if I do, dude, let me know!)

Six years ago, I interviewed at AARP with Tammy and Cecelia. Aside from being just desperate for a new job, there are two things I remember about that interview. First, I think I actually admitted to barely knowing what a … Continue reading →
A couple weeks ago I was presenting to a group of AARP field staff about the AARP Social Communications team. After sharing our structure, roles and some tips for rocking at social communications, I was asked, “How did you guys … Continue reading →
This blog, and every blog I’ve ever worked on, is run on WordPress. That said, I like to attend the local DC WordPress meetups when I can. Usually, I learn a nugget here or there for my personal blog. Sometimes … Continue reading →
Me: *Checks personal email* 140 emails with way too many unread. Me: *Checks work email* 200 emails that all require some sort of response or action. Me: *Goes to get coffee.* That happens to me at least a couple times … Continue reading →
You know that song? That song that makes you swing your hips a little extra or makes you walk a little taller, head up high? You probably only listen to it when you’re getting ready to go out on the … Continue reading →
