Tweet my status update as I check-in at home to blog

Dear Social Media,

You have unexpectedly become a large part of my life these past few days. They’ve been magical.

Last term Nick and I volunteered to lead an AMA meeting based on social media and how we, as marketers, need to understand utilize these sites in order to capitalize on this cultural phenomenon.

After working at adaptu this summer, I realized that whole new departments are being created based on social media, and that SEO/SEM industries are booming and continuing to grow. Check outSEMPDX for related networking events in Portland.

It’s undoubtedly changing how our society communicates. Even Nick and I both admitted that after taking on this project, both of us have been spending a significant amount of time on EVERY SINGLE SITE.

The advantage? We’ve both become very well-versed in the various types of social media and also how to use each type as a marketing tool. We’re talking Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare, YouTube, WordPress/Blogger and more.

Sounds like a win-win situation to me.


About Kailee Crawford

I'm an Oregon-born travel addict living in New York making the most of my vacation days. I started this travel blog to keep track of my bucket list and it's morphed into a journal of my adventures and recommendations for things to see, do, eat and drink. My hope is that I can help other travelers find their way. I want to try everything once and to live a life without regrets or missed opportunities. I call my philosophy on life the "the death bed philosophy" - I want to be laying in my death bed reflecting on all of the things I've done and seen in this world, not the things I wished I had done. It's not meant to be morbid, just a reminder to take risks, go out of your comfort zone and live life to the fullest. ♫♫♫♫♫ "You were only waiting for this moment to be free" --- "Blackbird" by The Beatles This quote is undoubtedly my favorite quote because it's a reminder of the infinite opportunities available to us. That in each moment there is an opportunity to find true happiness, and a sense of freedom when you're doing what you love. Freedom to explore, to create, to improve oneself, and to find fulfillment even during the 9 to 5 grind. ♫♫♫♫♫ I'm an incredibly pensive person with a wide variety of interests. In addition to traveling, my guilty pleasures include wine, food, music, art, languages and history. I grew up a nerd, watching The History Channel and reading The Lord of the Rings with my Dad. I'm driven by my pursuit of knowledge and growth and most passionate when I'm able to be creative. ♫♫♫♫♫
