This is a great post! I traveled for six weeks alone last year to get out of my comfort zone. When you're in unfamiliar territory and you have no one to talk to but yourself for six weeks, it's much easier to strike up conversation with that stranger sitting on the bar stool next to you. ;) 

It's so fun connecting with new people on & offline. Thanks for your perspective!

Yes! I love this. Smart move from Pluralsmart, but also an absolutely necessary service. Hope this doesn't go unnoticed. Thanks for writing about it.

Very interesting, and I really enjoyed your reporting! It'll be exciting to see how internet content disrupts traditional TV viewing in the future.

Hahaha...love it. This pretty much sums up my life, too (especially the no property/smoking/vocabulary/wearing the same thing two days in a row/muppet/not making my bed part). And here, I thought I was *actually* grown up at the ripe old age of 28.

 

Anyway, hope you have a good birthday, Sheldon! Long live adult-childhood!

Loved this post, Kirk. I wrote on a similar topic earlier this summer after encountering many students who simply didn't understand what daily life in PR was like: http://mollyborchers.com/2012/06/22/what-working-in-pr-is-really-like/.

I loved this post. It inspired me to think of new ideas for my clients! A few comments:

 

I think being "creative" is getting more and more tricky with each passing year. Because there is SO much information overload, I think it's becoming increasingly more difficult to grab people's attention. Plus, there have been so many great ideas already that it can be daunting to think of the next big thing.

 

Like one of the previous commenters, I too have worked for organizations/people who became uncomfortable every time creative ideas were suggested. I think the difference between 'good' and 'great' is being unafraid to take risks. Even if that means there will be failures along the way.

 

Thanks for the great read, Gini!

Over the next year, I'll be interested to see if Twitter and Pinterest usage begins to rival Facebook usage... Anyway, thanks for sharing these interesting stats! Love reading all your content, Sarah!

Great post, Heather. I agree with your thinking on this and I bet team Geben will be even better (if that's even possible!) for it! I believe that switching up your environment can be inspiring and stimulating.
