Reading Michael Hyatt’s take on writing, the discipline to just sit down and do it, I thought: I must blog. Today!
About what I had no idea, but then it hit me. Last week I let folks put a voice to my Twitter picture via a video. Except that video was all about my business so in a way, it was less personal and less social.
Work: I am a bad businesswoman, or at least there are times it feels that way. It’s the admin (accounting, billing, etc.) stuff I don’t like to do, as it takes away from the real marketing and PR work: writing, reading, pitching, designing.
Life: I don’t like putting away the laundry. Wash, dry, hang in the closet is fine, but fold and put in drawers seems to be an issue. And the fitted sheet gets rolled into a ball.
Mixology: I say “no” to mixing the personal and professional too much. Keeping Facebook for personal play and LinkedIn for professional networking helps me strike that balance. Twitter is where they sometimes collide.
Technology: I am a MAC user, but don’t consider myself a fangirl or geek, though family and friends do. When AT&T says I’m upgrade eligible, I’ll jettison my dumbphone for an iPhone.
Play: I don’t live to work, I work to live and play.
Entertainment: TV > Movies. Not sure why but each year, fewer movies seem worthy of $10 and a trip to the theater. Maybe it’s because I have overpriced cable, but I have bought fewer DVDs as most movies aren’t rewatch worthy.
Even with the DVR losing regulars like 24 and LOST, on TV I still can find plenty to really entertain. I still like vampires with True Blood and The Vampire Diaries — not that horrendous Twilight shit — replacing Buffy and Angel. Mad Men is on the Someday DVD marathon list.
Music: The strummy alt-rock noise that kinda all sounds the same dominates my iPod but it’s mixed with everything else: R&B, classic rock, soundtracks, cross-over country, hip-hop, oldies, classical, even showtunes like Wicked.
Hobbies: Time and money permitting, my go-to distractions are travel and food & wine.
Sports: Watching not playing. The Atlanta Braves, the Cotton Bowl bound LSU Tigers and by birth, the New Orleans Saints are my teams.
Dream Vacation: Paris. The one in France. Never been but it’s on the SOMEDAY Damnit! List.
That was a little attempt at walking the social talk. Do you know me better? Does reading about my human side make me seem more approachable, more hireable?
