Wednesday: Happy Pinning!

29 Aug

My boyfriend and my anniversary is in less than a month. Recently, he asked me what I wanted. Naturally, I pointed him to my Pinterest board entitled “Wish List.” Pinterest once again proves to be practical! Instead of trying to keep a list throughout the year, I just use my Pinterest board. With the “Pin It” button on my web browser, I can instantly pin anything I see on other websites. Thus, I have a running wish list and my boyfriend always knows what to get me to keep me happy! ūüėČ

Here are some of my top pins:

Can you tell I love all things preppy? Feel free to check out my entire board. I hope it inspires your wish list!

Monday: Headlines

30 Jul

Hello all! I am back after a wonderful vacation in North Carolina. It will be a busy week as I am starting my new job. As such, I am going to share only one article with you this Monday. My boss forwarded me this article, and I thought it was particularly timely. Several Olympic athletes have come under fire (just this weekend Hope Solo became caught in a Twitter controversy) or have been dismissed for improper social media use.

Social-Media Olympics: Are Officials Restricting Free Speech?

While I do believe in free speech, I understand the various Olympic Committees’ decisions to dismiss athletes. These athletes are ambassadors and representatives of their home countries. They should act as such. You may say this is a high standard, but we hold our government officials and leaders to the same expectations. And over the course of these 2 weeks, these athletes will receive more attention and hold more power than many of those same government officials. Thus, I respect the decision to dismiss athletes for improper social media conduct. However, it is a slippery slope. We must continue to protect our freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Without it, there would be no social media, no marketing or communications jobs, and, of course, no democracy.

Do you agree with the Olympic Committees’ decisions? Why or why not?

To the Beach

Starting today I am at my favorite place on earth, Emerald Isle, North Carolina. While in my little piece of paradise, I won’t be posting. However, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram for all your social media news and updates from my family beach vacation.

Enjoy your week!

According to Wired, “you can synchronize files stored on your Chrome OS and iOS devices with GDrive.” The news is great for Google users who also own an iPhone. For people like me, this means simplification! Read the full article to get more details about this exciting news.¬†

How do you think Apple will react? Does this give Google an edge?

Culture, Branding & Marketing

16 Jun

I normally don’t share items on Saturdays, but I am making an exception. I recently watched the webinar, “Let Your Culture Inspire Your Brand,” from the Columbus Chamber of Commerce. Marketing, whether it’s social media marketing or not, is based off branding. It’s so important to understand the brand and believe in the brand that you are marketing. The webinar helps companies learn how to create a strong culture and how to reflect culture in their external branding. I think the latter is¬†particularly¬†notably for anyone in the marketing industry. As marketers and creators of brands, we need to assist in establishing a strong internal culture and of course assist in communicating the internal culture to the outside world. I am a big believer in company culture. Company culture is definitely something that I consider when looking at jobs. Plus, a positive and strong company culture is more fun to market ;). Have a great Saturday and enjoy the webinar!
