Summer Guru Event With Google

Today I fly to California to visit Google's international headquarters. My company was invited to participate in Google's Agency Summer Guru Series. Here's their fancy Guru logo:

Day one is the Mobile Guru Day and day two is the YouTube Guru Day.

I'm pretty excited because I've been using these tools to manage advertising campaigns for about five years now for many thousands of businesses. I'll post some pictures when I get back.

4 Years Later

I'm back.

I've recently decided that blogging is something that I need, so stay tuned for the occasional thought and be prepared for me to launch a new blog or for me to purchase a real domain for this one. After all, this blog has so much messy, young adult adventure, I'd hate to wipe the slate.

Thanks for reading. See you soon.

A brief history of my blog.

I started blogging in 2002 and was consistent for about six years while the world of social media was quickly evolving.

I originally started blogging so that my long-distance girlfriend could read elaborately formatted letters on Live Journal. My friends started reading too and I decided that blogging was a great way to share my life with people who I knew cared about it. I took a break from blogging after high school and became a missionary in the UK for a couple years and when I got back, I picked up blogging on Blogger, a much more public, user-friendly platform.

My family started reading and then I got a few regular followers around the world... but not too many.

When MySpace gave way to Facebook, my blogging started to feel more like noise in the digital world and I lost my passion.

But now, there's so much to share...
