Home is Wherever I’m with You

*This is NOT an April Fools joke. It is, however, one of my worst kept secrets ever, so I can’t wait any longer to share…* “Living in the same place as the people you love matters.” I was sitting on the floor of the DFW airport last December when I read those words in the …

Pura Vida in Costa Rica

I recently had the incredible opportunity to visit Costa Rica as a work trip with priceline.com. I had never been to Costa Rica before, so I was excited to see the lush scenery and enjoy this beautiful country. My trip started in San Jose, where most of my time was spent working, but I did get a …

Tips to Use Social Listening to Drive Business Goals, Plus 11 Free (or nearly free) Listening Tools

Last week I had the opportunity to present at SMX Social Media Marketing Conference in Las Vegas.

I had …

After more than 3 years, last Friday was my last day working at IPG Mediabrands. I planned to post this last week, but technology had a “hate on Karianne” day and my computer died. Which made for a more stressful last day than I would’ve liked, but it will make for a funny story some …

Keywords and Data and Content! Oh My! My Top Takeaways From SMX East 2014

I had the opportunity to speak at SMX East in New York City a couple weeks ago. It was actually my first time at SMX East, but I had heard many great things about the conference so I was excited to be part of it. I was impressed with the quality of speakers and breadth …

A Case of the Mondays – Grammar Laughs

Captain Kirk comma

As a past 3rd grade teacher and public relations professional, I’m a bit of a stickler for grammar. I still have an AP Stylebook next to my desk and my co-workers come to me with their grammar questions. It’s not that I’ve never made a mistake. However, when I do make a mistake I notice …

Keep Your iPhone, I’ll Stick With My HTC One

My HTC One M8

    I’ve tried pretty much every cell phone operating system. My first smartphone was a Blackberry. Then I got an iPhone. After that I tried out Windows Phone. Finally I moved to Android. I really didn’t expect to like Android, let alone love it. All my friends had iPhones, so I figured I’d stick …

I Heart NYC: A Year to Make a New City Your Home

New York City

A year ago today I packed up everything that was left in my apartment, took an Uber to SeaTac airport and flew to New York. I arrived at my new apartment in Manhattan exhausted, but ready to start my new life. Today is my first New York-aversary! It was my birthday a few weeks ago …

5 Reasons I Like Atlantic City Better Than Las Vegas

Still being pretty new to New York, I’m still adventuring around and getting to know the East Coast. I had the chance to spend a very brief, but welcome, 24 hours in Atlantic City, New Jersey last week thanks to Crowdtap. I wasn’t really sure what to expect of AC. Some of my friends told …
