    My Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered Month!

    YOU GUYS! The new book Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered has established a cult following though I think it already had a cult following because it’s based on the popular podcast My Favorite Murder. I’m just now listening to the podcast so I can call myself a Murderino. (We on the inside know what this means 😉 ) I pre-ordered the book back in February because as soon as I saw the title I was HOOKED! What a fabulous title!! I mean, how can you NOT read this!? I read it while on vacation in Carlsbad and it totally inspired me! So during the month of July, I’m coming…

    Podcasts I Love

    About six months ago I decided to join the bandwagon (it seemed everyone was always talking about the podcasts they were listening and I had nothing to add to the conversation) and begin listening to podcasts. I asked around, did some research and have become a faithful follower of these 5. The Five Podcasts I Love The Quote of the Day Show Hosted by Sean Croxton, it’s always uplifting, motivational and I always finish a podcast feeling inspired. Sean shares a quote of the day and a clip of a motivational speaker. After it’s over, I always want to go and do something to better myself or the world. The show is…

    Hanging Out on the SpinWeb Podcast

    A few weeks ago I reached out to the president of digital marketing agency SpinWeb because I had begun listening to their podcast. Michael, the president, also happens to be the co-host. I wanted to learn all about how they structure it, the software and their recording studio. Michael and I had a great conversation and he invited me to come in and watch. Then he changed his mind and said he’d like to have me on with them! YAY! He warned it was nothing elaborate, but I didn’t care. I just wanted to see how it was done. Michael shared his co-host Allison’s husband helped them decide where to…

    My First Dollar Podcast

    I’ve been hemming and hawing around for months now trying to decide if I should do a podcast. My initial mention of the idea to friends wasn’t overly well received. Of course, my idea wasn’t developed yet either. I was going to base it on this blog, but after more discussion with other creative friends, I have landed on my idea. It’s called My First Dollar. No matter what venture I pursue, it all comes back to one idea: I love telling stories. I’m a journalist at heart and I absolutely adore sharing stories. Nothing gets me more invigorated than a great story. I also have a heart for small…

    Podcasting and Ellen’s Views on Success

    Recently I began listening to podcasts because I thought maybe I wanted to do a podcast. I had never listened to one before, so I figured I should check them out. During one episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (a show I watch on the daily), she had Dax Shepard on giving relationship advice and at the end, shared he also had a podcast called Armchair Expert. Intrigued, I checked it out. Now, let me tell you, these episodes are CRAZY long! Like 2 hours! The first episode I listened to, he talked to his Parenthood wife Joy Bryant. I found her fascinating and I was eager to listen to more podcasts…
