Who cares?

Have you ever asked that before posting / sharing something?

After dropping my boys off at school(s) this morning, I climbed back into the car, pulled out my phone, opened my Instagram app (because I recently deleted FB from my phone + the Universe abhors a vacuum ;)) and wondered:

Who actually cares if I post a story to Instagram?

The communication nerd in me is fascinated to study / learn how and why people use these new features of Insta + FB to connect.

So I decided to ask those brave souls who happened to tap + watch my story: (more…)

Looking for me? (Where to find me online right now.)

Hey you. It’s been a while.

I’ve had a ridiculously productive afternoon here in WordPress, updating my site for the first time in a long while, and I’ve gotta say: it feels SO. effing. GOOD.

While I’m in here skipping around from page to page making little tweaks for MEGA energy boosts, I figured I’d go ahead and write a quick WHERE AM I? post to let you know where you can find me online these days (if you’re looking, which, considering you’re checking my blog right now, you very well could be).

Slow Down + Grab the Kleenex, Mama.

A few weeks ago I recorded a podcast episode eloquently titled, “What’s the Rush? Permission to Slow the Eff Down.”

Somehow I’d totally forgotten that I’d get to meet Nichole Nordeman AND watch her perform her beautiful / heartbreaking song “Slow Down” live just a few weeks later.

I’d seen the video when it started making the rounds on Facebook last year, but when I heard it in person – I may have actually cried my face off.

Whether it’s your first or your 100th time listening, IF and when you’re ready, give yourself the gift of a tissue and a few minutes of time to process afterward. This one goes deep. <3 (more…)

The BEST (Personal) Use of Facebook Groups I’ve Seen

A few weeks ago I had a SUPER simple yet game-changing idea on how we can use Facebook in a totally new way — for business AND for personal life.

It’s one of those how-did-we-not-think-of-this-sooner? ideas that led to a whole lot of exclamation points and “this is brilliant!!”s in the comments.

If you’re a digi-hoarder like me (phone’s almost always FULL, laptop’s slower by the day) and you want a safe space for capturing ideas, practicing FB lives, AND storing family videos and pics watch this vid to learn the super quick trick that may forever change how you document things over there: (more…)

What are you working on over there?

And have you read Big Magic yet?

It’s a book by the wildly talented Elizabeth Gilbert (most widely known for her book-turned-movie, Eat Pray Love).

Full title: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.

I first read it on a ridiculously-rare-yet-inspired social media free weekend earlier this year (or was it last year? what is TIME lately?) and man. It is so good. (more…)
