Nielsen and Twitter: New Ratings Based on “Social TV”

Dec 18, 2012 No Comments by

Ohhh, two of my very favorite things: Television (home of 30 Rock and Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live (and Tina Fey), and the Animaniacs) and Twitter (home of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, and every 12 to 18 year old’s duck-face Instagram photos) are starting to play nice. It’s not as if they haven’t been playing [...]

The Best Comedians on Twitter

Nov 19, 2012 No Comments by

I follow over 200 comedians on Twitter (conveniently corralled into my “Comedians” list, which occupies the 3rd most important column in my Hootsuite dashboard, right after “bacon” and “kittens”*). I follow them because a) they’re funny (duh) b) I was fascinated to see how some have built their fan base through Twitter and c) They [...]

Content Marketing, MTV, Music, and the Death of the Music Video

Nov 13, 2012 No Comments by

Oh, how I wish this video WAS actually sanctioned by MTV…because it’s not as if it’s wrong about MTV, music, and the death of the music video. It actually DOESN’T make sense for MTV to still play music videos, at least, not in the same way they did before with MTV hits, MTV unplugged (good [...]

Now This is Creative Social: Bodyform Responds to Facebook Page Rant

Oct 16, 2012 No Comments by

You get a weird post on your Facebook page, it gets more likes than your actual fan base, and essentially goes viral without any help from you. What do you do? You: a) Ignore it. It was silly and not that “relevant” to our brand or latest promotion. b) Give it a Like, but not [...]

Feb 23, 2012 2 Comments

Well! I was actually asked this very question for OSU’s student paper The Lantern recently. You can read the full article here. And here is a bit of our original interview: 1.

Pinterest for Business

Feb 22, 2012 No Comments

I found this GREAT Slideshare presentation on Pinterest (via this guy), and thought I’d share here. I’m definitely interested in Pinterest (one of my friends calls it “porn for women”), but still am figuring it out for myself and how it might work for a client. This deck is pretty comprehensive and gives great ideas [...]

#SocialFresh Day 1 Recap

Feb 06, 2012 No Comments

Getting off a plane late Sunday evening into the warm and wet Florida air was kinda awesome. As an Ohio girl who has suffered through a winter or two, getting off the plane into this weather was an invitation to basically run around nude for the next four days. But, of course, as a very [...]

Blogging 101 Presentation for OSU PRSSA

Jan 27, 2012 No Comments

The other night I gave a presentation to the Ohio State University PRSSA group. I always love speaking to students in this group because they are eager to learn and see beyond the constraints that business owners have to–by necessity–abide by. I approach blogging in a little more “touchy-feely” way (though don’t worry, I’ll be [...]

Either an intentionally hilarious rant on Social Media and Twitter, or an unintentional commentary on how mobile/social has narrowed our ability to enjoy experiences holistically. Either way, worth a watch. Photo source

I feel as though I am a “blog connoisseur”.  I love blogs, I love to read them, comment on them, meet the people who write them. But in my blog consuming quest, I’ve noticed a few things that some bloggers don’t do that that could help them be better. And these things are soooooo stupidly [...]

The Dawn of the “New Professional”: How Social Media is Blasting through the Notion of the Suit and Tie

Aug 23, 2011 1 Comment

We all know that Social Media is making the world smaller. Ten years ago, we would never have had rapid fire, real-time conversations with people in the next city over, let alone in other countries and continents. (Well, maybe you were a fan of AOL chat back in the day and met people that way, [...]

I originally wrote this post for the original Social Business Strategies guy, Nate Riggs, but thought I’d re-post here. I hope you enjoy! I have a confession to make: I am a former Twitter skeptic. I mean, I’d signed up in the beginning just like everyone else. But USING it? No. I didn’t get it. [...]

Welcome to Sarah J., my “professional” (barf)* website. I’m tempted to say, “These are not the Droids you’re looking for,” but I’m afraid you’ll think I’m too nerdy. Because originally, I had written a super boring “Summary of Qualifications” here, but then I realized, “No one wants to read this because you sound like [...]
