I had the pleasure of speaking at the 2013 Web Conference at Penn State in early June. My presentation, “People are (s)Talking: How to Get Users to Participate and Not Just Spectate” was part of the marketing track.
To put icing on the cake, my session was the one in [...]
I do it. I admit it. But it’s usually a last resort, or for something that needs quick turnaround. I’m talking about email interviews.
When I have ample time, especially when it comes to magazine features and news stories, it’s hands down just better to interview someone in person–or at the very least, over the [...]
After taking two eight-week terms off (for travel purposes — Yellowstone Trip and HighEdWeb), I am happy to be back in the swing of this with the MBA program at Elizabethtown College. This term, it’s Global Business Strategies. While I don’t think I’ll ever be involved in international business, at least at a [...]
(NOTE: This is not a rant. This is truly meant to be an inspirational post with an (unsolicited, of course) idea on how to make a great event better. I am not a fundraising professional so these are just opinions based on my own thoughts, feelings and ideas and they in no way represent any [...]
I attended my first eduWeb conference last week. There, I presented in the marketing track a presentation called “No Such Thing as TMI: How to Create a Culture of (Content) Sharing”.

This post highlighted [...]
I’ve been lax about blogging. I know. But a fun new tool I found (via Twitter of course) inspired me to blog today. Visual.ly allows you to create and customize a variety of different infographics, pulling in data from websites like Twitter and Facebook. Infographics are an incredible way to present information in a fun [...]
I’m am super excited to announce that I will be hosting two social media presentations at Elizabethtown College, where I work as the integrated marketing manager. These events, while hosted on campus, are open to the general public — and are free. Both sessions are the same; there is just a day and evening one [...]
I’ve been bad. I haven’t updated this blog as I said I would a few weeks–er, I mean months–ago, back when I said I’d be back. Truth be told, so many exciting things have been happening lately that blogging had to take a back seat. Heck, it wasn’t even in the back seat; it was [...]
I’ve taken a hiatus from blogging. It’s not that I didn’t want to blog. It’s not that I’ve had nothing to blog about. (Quite the opposite in fact!) It’s just that time slipped away. It happens to the best and worst of us, right? I discourage people form blogging if they can’t keep up with [...]
