30 Days Of Thanks: Marie's Response

Pin It
Thank you. thanks you for your letter. I got to read the blog post before the real thing arrived, and it was very touching to see the handwritten thing, along with cards and all.
I remember fondly my time with you and your family, nearly 18 years ago....it was indeed an adventure, where i found myself in what could literally have been the bizarro version of the life i had just left in France. Huge house to tiny one, a small estranged family to a large caring one. It was an extremely enriching experience, and even if didnt get into politics, language skills became indeed my competitive advantage for a long time.
I’m glad you kept good memories, such as rpg gaming and movies from me. These two items are important elements in our generation’s culture and it flatters me to think I played some role in shaping the person you became today.
I’m happy you lead a fulfilling life, and hope that one day, our paths cross again.
In the meanwhile, you can definitely count me as a regular reader of yours!

10 Questions With an Internet PR Girl

Pin It

Adam: What is Your name and what do you do (Professionally)
Jennifer Nixon. My title is Online PR and Social Media strategist… but I figure that sound far too pretentious for a girl who blogs about burlesque dancing, vajazzle’s and getting drunk at the office Christmas party in her spare time, so let’s just say “Online PR girl”. To put it simply I make websites get noticed.

Adam: How many hours a day do you spend online?
On an average week day, if I’m not going out or doing anything special, I spend up to seven hours staring at the screen in work… then it can be anything up to 3 hours of a night – especially if I’m behind on blogging! (God, that makes me sound like a total geek doesn’t it?)

Internet Fads

It may come as a surprise to most of you that, despite my blog, I don't have internet at home. I am able to access the internet with my phone, but that limits what I can do. For no real reason, I have been slow to adapt or accept many things technological. I really don’t understand why this is the case. When I was a teenager, every bedroom in my house had a computer. As well as in the computer room. And in the kitchen. This was before AOL had become the internet provider for most of the country and before the web had become commonplace. Instead, my dad ran a local bulletin board where people would call our computer directly and play trivia games or talk on message boards.
