Bloggers: Why You Should Assume Tech Problems Are Your Fault

Bloggers: Why You Should Assume Tech Problems Are Your Fault

The last time one of your biz or blog tools wasn’t working, what was your first thought? A: Why the freak can’t I figure this out? B: Why the fraggle isn’t this working? Silly curses aside, the answers seem similar. But they can tell you a lot about yourself. And being aware of […]

How to Create Super Stealthy Pinterest Images for Your Blog

How to Create Super Stealthy Pinterest Images for Your Blog

To paraphrase Mugatu, “Pinterest for business. So hot right now.” (That’s right, Hansel’s been bumped out of the spotlight!) As I’m becoming more involved in the whole creative business niche, I’ve seen a passion for Pinterest that I hadn’t felt or seen in years. It inspired me, and I logged back […]

On 25 and a Blog Identity Crisis

On 25 and a Blog Identity Crisis

On October 10, I did two things: I turned 25, and I bingewatched I Love Lucy while redesigning this website. Now, around 25, most people would be talking about a quarter-life crisis. And don’t get me wrong, I am. But I’m more concerned about a blog identity crisis. Take a look […]

Why “MIT” To-Do Lists Don’t Work For Me

Why “MIT” To-Do Lists Don’t Work For Me

I like to conduct little experiments with my workflows, tools, and productivity tips. I decided I was being selfish to keep the results to myself, so I’m sharing some with you! Any productivity enthusiast knows that there’s a lot of bad advice out there. Not because anyone’s trying to dupe […]

My Three Words for 2015

My Three Words for 2015

I’ve been seeing a lot of people do something that’s pretty awesome: my three words. Instead of posting New Year’s resolutions, people I really admire, like Jessica Lawlor, pick three words to define the big picture for the year ahead. Started by Chris Brogan (someone else I mucho admire) in 2006, the […]

My #GetGutsy Story: Small Wins and Book Blogs

My #GetGutsy Story: Small Wins and Book Blogs

Warning: This post is the result of word vomit. It’s my thoughts (mostly) unfiltered. They’re disorganized, ranty, and ridiculous. And I curse sometimes. I’ve never moved (or even traveled) across the country. I haven’t started a business (yet…you never know :P). The only marathoning I do is of the Netflix variety, […]

Your Content Marketing Quarterback

Your Content Marketing Quarterback

Last Sunday, surrounded my purple-clad family, I was watching the Ravens season opener when something clicked. The sportscaster said something that made me yell, “football is just like content marketing!” I needed to leave five minutes ago in order to avoid getting caught in the “game’s over” traffic in Baltimore […]

HelloFlo Gets Periods – And Marketing – Right

HelloFlo Gets Periods – And Marketing – Right

How often does a marketing video make you laugh out loud? How often do you watch it several times in a row because you laughed through some of the jokes the first few times around? For me, who can laugh at almost anything, it’s still not often. But that’s just […]

Vocus Conference Recap: I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome.

Vocus Conference Recap: I Demanded Success. It Was Awesome.

Conference Recap: Part 1 (These were previously 3 separate posts about the conference that I’ve since combined into one) So, where to begin? Maybe with Friday afternoon. Around 6, I crawled into bed for a quick nap to recharge for University of Delaware’s Alumni Weekend. I woke up at 11…a.m. […]
