BL congrats! and congrats! to the smart people at Proof Digital Media for their vision to bring you on board.
Managing Director of Intelligent(er) Conversations and Customer-Centric Awesomeness wouldn’t work on a card, but you sure fit the title :-)
Dear amiga, my best wishes to you, and kudos to BM for waking up mid-morning.
Congratulations! They are ridiculously lucky to have such an amazing brain on board. Hmmm. Maybe that could be your title:
BL Ochman, Amazing Brain
I was totally overwhlemed by my first week at my first corporate job, and often felt like I was on a new planet. But the work is challenging, exciting, interesting, and fun. And I’ve been given the opportunity to work with and learn from a lot of smart people.
I was jones-ing to post to my blogs, and to Tweet, but the first week went by in a whoosh. I’m baaaack to blogging and Tweeting and will be keeping my ear to the ground for new and interesting developments both online and off.
I’ll continue writing What’s Next Blog, which is an Ad Age Power 150 blog, writing for AdAge DigitalNext, Digiday Social, Social Media Today and others.
And I’ll continue as co-founder and blogger at the pet lovers’ site Pawfun.com, where you can create and share a free photo e-card featuring your favorite pet photo and design a variety of great products featuring your pet.
Wow…see what happens when you are out of touch! Congrats, BL. I’m surprised and not surprised. Surprised because you are such a standard for anyone wishing to work solo, and effectively, in social media that I never imagined you at a desk somewhere other than home; and not surprised because I knew a smart company somewhere would snap you up – how could they not? Thank God we have someone in Corporate America now who knows what she’s doing. I like the “she” part a lot! Best always, your biggest fan, Yvonne
You’d better keep posting and tweeting! A bit of advice. I had a corporate job once, my first, when I was “of a certain age” (meaning, not easily fooled). One big reason I left was the way my corporate job disregarded the importance of my community and the time I had invested building it. And the great satisfaction I got out of it.
I’m happy for you having this great opportunity, but don’t let them bury you.
great advice francine! because if i don’t stay in the fray, i’ll be useless in six months. trust me, i know that!
