A Fond Farewell

Ironically, I'm writing this blog post to inform you that in the foreseeable future you should not expect any further blog posts here. If you are looking for social media resources, I highly recommend you subscribe to Jive Talks  and Thoroughly Modern Marketing. Both of which I regularly contribute content to.

That being said, I'd like to explain this decision. Time has really flown by since the start of 2012. I looked at my blog about a week ago and realized how few posts I've made this year, which brought me to the conclusion that it is time face the music and admit that I don't have the time to keep this blog going.

Thus far, 2012 has turned out to be the busiest and best year of my life. Back in March, I joined the Board of Directors for the Portland Female Executives (PDXfX) as the Communications Director.  In May, I became the Associate Social Media Editor for Thoroughly Modern Marketing. I also had the opportunity to speak at InnoTech Oregon. In June, I did my first keynote at the June PDXfX event. In July, I left my job at Integra Telecom to be the Enterprise Community Manager at Jive Software, which has been nothing short of an amazing experience. Throughout, I've been teaching courses in social media marketing for Spokane Falls Community College.

Outside of work, I've been doing a lot of traveling, camping, hiking, and socializing. I've also managed to collect a fair amount of photos. I thought I'd share a few of the photos of things I was doing this past summer instead of writing my blog ;)


May...

I moved out of my apartment into a lovely Villa with my boyfriend, David.



June...

Camped at Kalaloch with my favorite men, David and Jesse. Climbed trees and overcame my fear of heights.




Visited my hometown Spokane to attend a wedding, see my parents, and teach my friend Meicha to skip rocks at Bowl and Pitcher.


July...

Watched my first Timbers game. Said goodbye to a great coworker and friend as we both changed jobs.




Camped at Hoh River with the newly weds, Chae and Tony. Camped at Cougar Rock (Mt. Rainier) for David's birthday. Visited the Chinese Gardens in Portland with my amazing mother.



August...

A time of festivals and tours in Portland. Fremont Festival, Bite of Oregon, and Brewvana.





Hiked at Ellowa falls with our wonderful neighbors, Daena and Oliver.



Traveled to Palo Alto, CA for work. Got to see the beautiful office there and watch my manager deliver a fantastic keynote.


All in all, it has been an exciting summer. I look forward to many more adventures. Unfortunately, that means a trade off with my blogging here.
