[This rather long blog post originally appeared at my work-life balance project All the Stuff Done, but I thought this was a better home for it, so I moved it here and recapped it there. Thanks for letting me talk that through.]
I found ‘my space’ in higher ed social media in 2006; [...]
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 [...]

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 [...]
