Wink at the Moon Tonight

Tonight, I remembered the life and accomplishments of Neil Armstrong. In doing so, I captured a blue moon:

Farewell, Neil Armstrong.

Contest Entry – Blissdom 2013 Sponsorship via One2One Network

Are You Listening?

There are two things that make me smile – an upcoming Blissdom Conference and the chance to earn a sponsorship award to attend Blissdom 2013 with One2One Network. 

Why should I be so fortunate to be chosen by One2One Network for sponsorship to 2013 Blissdom Conference?

As a social media influencer who successfully crosswalks photography, running,  lifestyle, and political communities, I enjoy the ability to share information with a broad range of followers. For years I’ve been creating blog posts of product reviews. I have always been careful to provide my readership with an honest and accurate review of the product – including disclosures before disclosures were cool. My goal with product reviews is to provide high quality, useful information for prospective customers. When I discovered the One2One Network  at Blissdom Nashville, I found an organization that works with bloggers and brands to produce the same  high quality content. Hallelujah! It was like peanut butter meeting jelly for the first time – simply magic!

Invest in me.  Blissdom is a content rich conference that provides bloggers technical skills and empowerment to be better in blogging and in life.  I want to build upon what I’ve learned from Blissdom 2012 within social media to help people do better. Better in social media and in life. Sending me to Blissdom will put me in a position to increase my knowledge base and social media influence – making me a better helper and a better One2One member.

Quite frankly, if chosen I’ll be the best One2One network ambassador you’ve ever had :)

RNC 2012 Convention Must See Videos

Continuing my coverage of the 2012 GOP Convention from the wilds of southeastern Pennsylvania.

Hey girl, its Vice President Candidate Paul Ryan addressing the crowd at the 2012 GOP Convention:

 

You go Girl! Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice addresses the crowd at the 2012 GOP Convention

 

Mike Flynn proves me right!  More evidence that the GOP should have canned the MSM and recruited more bloggers to cover the convention:

One parting thought from this convention – Paul Ryan was right.

RNC/GOP Convention 2012

Sadly, I am not attending the 2012 GOP Presidential convention, other bloggers are covering it. I had planned on linking the credentialed bloggers so far I have been unsuccessful in acquiring an official list from the GOP Convention. To date, my tweet has gone unanswered.

To be clear, I did start the process of applying for blogger/media credentials but came up against a curious wall. I was asked to submit a sample of published work on letterhead to the press galleries in D.C.   While I  have published work, it is not political in nature. My online skill set has evolved  focusing within the social media/photojournalism ecosystem. I found it difficult to translate my skills adequately onto fine linen letter head paper, so I abandoned the quest to obtain credentials.

To give you a feel for a behind-the-scenes experience of a national political convention, check out my photos from the 2008 GOP Convention.

This time around, you will have to depend on the likes of Bret Baier along with unnamed bloggers for the type of convention coverage I would have shared with you.

Just because you might have missed it – Governor Chris Christie’s Convention Speech:

The Road to the 2012 Philadelphia Marathon

Marathon training. Oy.

My new part-time job :) #redefinepossible @NikeRunning

Fresh from completing the SheROX sprint triathlon, I’m now focusing my energy and time on training to safely complete the 2012 Philadelphia Marathon. In this endeavor, I’m not alone – I am fortunate to have a great group of runners to share the agony..err..fun of training and the joy of accomplishing running goals. 

Between now and the Marathon, I registered for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon in September. This will be a great training long run and as an added bonus, I get a medal for my effort.

I’d like to thank Nike for supplying a pair of FlyKnit shoes and a Nike+ Sportswatch to track my runs. You can follow updates on my progress here on the blog and also at Nike andDaily Mile.

Farewell Neil Armstrong

American and first human to step foot on the moon, Neil Armstrong, has passed today at the ripe age of 82. While saddened by his sudden passing, it is disheartening to know that there is no generation of moon landing astronauts that followed in his footsteps.  Just imaging where we would be if we continued the mission to the moon..and beyond.

Farewell, Neil, safe flight on your journey home.

Peter Townshend – Let My Love Open The Door

What is becoming a rare event, I was listening to a music station this morning during my commute to Bootcamp. This song came over the radio and it has inhabited my head all day.

Enjoy!
