My Guest Lecture At The University of Arizona On Social Media

My Guest Lecture At The University of Arizona On Social Media

Last week, I drove to the University of Arizona to speak to the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Department students about Blogging, Social Media, and being a Social Media Influencer. The school offers several different options of Majors and Minors focusing on a variety of topics surrounding the innovation and technological advancements of computer technology including the ever-changing landscape of Social Media. I wish they had these options when I was in school. The students were a bit hesitant at first but opened up pretty quickly. The professor had them prepare questions prior to my arrival, which was a… Continue Reading

Happy Monday people! I am one step away from falling on my face but thought I would check in here first before I fall…down for a bit. The last few weeks have been insane but awesome nonetheless.

I think one is enough and even then, I never use it. 2) Cute shoes on the floor. They should stay there and if they are not comfy at home – why… Continue Reading
