The micro-blogging site that changed the world…

Seven years ago today, a site launched that would change my life. 18 months later I would find out about it and sign up. I learned about Twitter at work. I was reading some article about marketing and the author mentioned this new micro-blogging site that was starting to take off. At first, I didn’t get it. As you can… Read more »

What’s popular isn’t always good.

I’m not misquoting Howard Cosell.  I’m waxing philosophical.  KCRA is running their local A List popularity contest again.

Single People: Have a Hopeful Valentine’s Day

For the first time in my life, I have a Valentine. Oh what a Valentine. He makes me laugh. We seem to be on the same wavelength or page about everything. I am head over heels in love with him. It’s nothing short of a miracle. This time last year, I was lonely, bitter, and pretty much convinced that I’d… Read more »

Random Thoughts on a Job Search

      3 Comments on Random Thoughts on a Job Search

I haven’t searched for a job in about six years. It’s not as bad as dating, but it’s definitely challenging. Part of me wants to find a job in an entirely new industry. Part of me just wants to freelance and do some writing. Part of me wants to do the same thing I’ve been doing because I’ve been doing… Read more »
