29, going on 13.
Love these tips from my favorite task-master. :)
I've heard so many times that blocking/chunking your time is a fast track to productivity, but the spastic way in which I work often prevents me from doing that. This is a great reminder to try it again!

@bradmarley This is actually one of my biggest pet peeves — because I know a handful of people who do purposely brag about it on a regular basis (More emails means greater importance!) Managing multiple inboxes is just a fact of life, so it's important to find and execute a strategy that works for you.

Do I get to take the rest of the day off? This is honestly one of the coolest things that's ever happened to me — I love the Spin Sucks community!

@patmrhoads Nothing wrong with being fashionably late! Great to meet you as well, Pat. As long as we're all confessing our guilty pleasures, I guess I should admit that I'll watch anything on Bravo. It's terrible, but oh-so-entertaining.

@JamesonGBrown Thanks, Jameson! I've got mad love for shelter pups.
@bradmarley Awww, shucks. Thanks, Brad.
@dwaynealicie This is the third conversation I've had about Doughnut Plant in the last few weeks. I MUST GO.
@Anthony_Rodriguez It actually warms my heart to hear you say that — send me a photo when they arrive?
@nickcicero Aren't they just the best? Thanks for the comment. :)
@PattiRoseKnight Thank you, Patty — it's great to "meet" you as well. :)
@dwaynealicie Thank you for the kind words, Dwayne! New York is treating me well, though, I sometimes wonder if I'll ever stop feeling like a tourist in this city.
Definitely blasting *NSYNC and One Direction the rest of the day in @ginidietrich's honor!
@Nikki Little I'm blushing. Thanks, love!
@jolynndeal Thank you kindly, Jo Lynn!
@AlexaScordato Never — you're the best.
@ExtremelyAvg Thanks, Brian!
@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes Nice to "meet" you, Joshua!
@belllindsay The adoration is mutual! I'm still in a state of shock, and incredibly humbled and grateful. You guys rock my socks off.
@KenMueller Hi, Ken! Great to "meet" you. :)
@katskrieger Thank you, Kat! I'm still completely overwhelmed that Gini chose me, but it's all kinds of awesome.
@JoeCardillo Nice to meet you, Joe!
@sydcon_mktg Likewise, Jennifer! I'm a recovering boy band addict as well, so I feel like I'm in good company.
@yvettepistorio Hi, Yvette! I just read the list of things you love on your profile, and I think we could be great friends. ;)
@LauraPetrolino Hi, Laura! Happy to chat about the Dog-Up anytime — it was a blast. :)
@biggreenpen Thank you so much! I am unbelievably honored.
@StephanieFlo Stephanie! Let's get a lady date on the calendar. :)
@MikeEttlemyer Nice! I have the Preston in whiskey tortoise.

@MikeEttlemyer Well said, Mike! What pair do you own?
@chloelist You are so right — it does seem too good to be true! But they certainly demonstrate over and over again that they're committed to their product and their customers, which is so refreshing. Thank you for the comment!
@coffeewithjulie @ginidietrich I hear you, Julie. After you purchase your first pair, it's a slippery slope!
@dalicie Many thanks for the book reco, and for checking out my post!
@Anthony_Rodriguez Thanks for the comment, Anthony! That's actually part of the reason WP was founded — to tear down the walls that the eyeglasses companies had built, charging helpless consumers exorbitant prices.
Please keep me posted if you decide to make a purchase (I can make some recos!) and thanks again for the kind words!
@ginidietrich That's a great question! And one I do not have a good answer for. If nothing else, they certainly encourage us to elevate our own efforts, and be creative when it comes to reaching our audiences!
@Nikki Little I wonder how many people in my inner circle want to slap me silly for the number of times I've shared something WP related. ;) But like you said, it's a total testament to them empowering me & the rest of their community over and over again. Can't wait to see Mr. Little in his new pair very soon!
@NancyCawleyJean Thank you, Nancy! I've been thinking a lot lately about what it is exactly that excites me about this brand, and finally, I was able to put together some cohesive thoughts. :) Please keep me posted if you decide to make a purchase!
@AmyMccTobin Thank you so much, Amy! You are so right — the proper formula for breeding brand loyalty includes many moving parts. And almost on cue, shortly after this post was published, WP announced a New Year's Resolution party they're hosting here in NYC. Loving it!
@JohnMillen Ha! I have started getting a few eye rolls when I bring them up. And I may or may not have been accused of loving them more than my current company (which is, of course, not true). But I say there's no such thing as drinking too much Kool-Aid. ;)
@JohnMillen I see your YouTube clip, and raise you one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aw2o-Oc3Gss&list=UUhAPoXp6dREvou4xZPS6ulg ;) Thank you so much for your comment, and I totally agree: a few short video clips = invaluable.
@bradmarley BAM. You always know exactly what to say, Brad, and I appreciate the kind words! And, yes, mimosas. Always mimosas.
You don't look a day over 25. ;) Cheers to you, my dear, and I hope you have a very happy birthday!

@JasMollica Thanks so much for the comment, Jason! Like you said, it's easy to get overwhelmed, but if you break it down into manageable chunks, it becomes easier to digest.

It's difficult to fully articulate how happy my heart is to see my buddy Nikki on Spin Sucks. #bucketlist
While I've usually been the one building a social media presence from scratch, I can see how revamping an existing set-up might become the norm as companies become more savvy and begin to see the error of their ways. I imagine redefining a brand's "voice" is one of the biggest challenges in this clean-up process. This is a great roadmap!

Your assertion about being "whatever we want to be" is spot on. As Millenials, we truly believe that, which is why I think we're so hesitant to commit to one path, and constantly question our decisions. "Am I just suffering from 'grass is greener' syndrome?" "Shouldn't I just be thankful for the job I have?" There's nothing wrong with always striving for the next best thing, but that doesn't mean you won't drive yourself crazy from time to time. :)

I've seen a lot of animal rescue stories, but the blind dog one absolutely takes the cake. It really makes you appreciate what these organizations do for our four-legged friends on a daily basis.

I would geek out for a pair of Warby Parkers! I did the Home Try-On and fell in love with the brand and its mission. Another fave social good campaign? Tweetdrive: http://tweetdrive.org -- toy drive for underprivileged kids!
