October 5, 2010

What are you thankful for this week leading up to Thanksgiving?

I’m thankful for a lot — as there are a lot of big moves and changes in the world of smichm… so I figure I’ll fill you in with one blog post!

New Career

I will be starting a new career with Strategic Objectives, a Toronto PR agency, next week. I am very excited to join their amazing team and to work on some challenging projects with some of the world’s leading consumer and lifestyle brands. It will be a learning curve, but I am up for the challenge and know I will have a wonderful support system within the agency. Read the rest of this entry »

August 12, 2010

I know SXSW Interactive is a ways away, but it has taken its pitched sessions into Panel Picker stage. What does this mean? It means your votes are needed!

1. Naked Dating: What started as an intoxicated invitation, soon became “the funniest” session of last year’s festival and rated one of the top panels on love and self-improvement. Now with a successful blog and much more to come, Jeremy and I are back at it with our session called Naked Dating: How To Find Love in 140-characters or less. Maybe this year we’ll even present while naked:

2. We Love In Public: Social media has made exhibitionists and voyeurs of all of us – how has this changed the dynamics of dating in a socially connected world? Love and Over Exposure. Vote Here:

A Day In The Life?

June 9, 2010

Today was an amazing day. Better than yesterday, so much to share!

The iPod touch my friends and followers helped me win from #SXSWyearbook (prom queen) was delivered! See how happy it made me

My partner in crime, Jeremy Wright, gave me a sweet shout out in his interview with TechVibes and they so kindly included the SXSW interview of mine with Jeremy!

My video guru, Guy Gal, gave me an awesome shout out (after my cameo) on after his amazing event last week featuring #UNmarketing. Wicked event and Im very excited for the UNmarketing book.

His company, The Biz Media, puts together some amazing videos and they just produced a seriously amazing one for> I am so excited to show it to you! Final edits are being done and I’ll post it once its done!

I also had a lot of fun in the office with the whole marketing team. Between the impromptu dance breaks and funny video ideas, all the laughing gave my stomach quite the work out.

Good thing too, because I’ll be missing my belly dancing class today for a surprise date night with Dave Coleman?!? pinching myself.

How was your day? anything spectacular happen?

Naked Question #2: How Long to Wait After a Date?

May 19, 2010

In our second installment of answering your questions (ask yours here!), we cover whether changes in technology mean changes in approaches to the “waiting game”! And if you want to yell at us on Twitter, just hashtag your tweet #nakeddating or send it to @smichm or @jeremywright.

Today’s question is from Bernie:

I think the ‘wait x amount of days before calling’ rules of Swingers no longer apply due to social media/networking. Twitter allows you to contact/converse with dates minutes after parting. Are there new rules/ideas/guidelines to follow for our changing times?

“She’s Out Of My League”

May 18, 2010

Naked Dating: First Question and Answers Are up!

Every week (at least once), we’ll answer a question from our Naked Public. Format is Jer and Iwill each write a “blind” response (without knowing what the other is saying). We’ll then go back and forth arguing, debating or poking fun at each other.

Given this is our first one, be gentle! To get your questions answered, go here! And if you want to yell at us on Twitter, just hashtag your tweet #nakeddating or send it to @smichm or @jeremywright.

Our first question is from Randy:

What do you think of the concept ‘out of my league’? Usually I tend to not go for girls I think are in that category.

Let’s Get Naked

May 11, 2010

The spawn of Twating (Twitter+Dating) has now launched on Tumbler and requires your questions, love and support in order to survive.

Naked Dating

Ask Us Anything About Online Dating

Remember Dear X, those dating columns in newspapers? Weren’t they fun? For girls, probably all kinds of “learning”. For guys, probably all kinds of entertainment. Okay it was probably entertaining for girls too.

Well, dating has changed, and so too must those boring old question and answer style columns.

sxsw wrap up

March 30, 2010

As you know, I was on this thing they call a “vacation” après my trip to Austin Texas. Without roaming on my phone or a computer on hand, it was the equivalent of a modern torture technique mixed with a social experiment, all in one.

Any-hooo, I know its a little late but here are my wrap ups. You can find my sxsw highlights and tech trends on the blog and my personal/professional sxsw wrap up on Techvibes.

Also, don’t forget to check out the interviews and vids on the YouTube Channel – Better Blogging with Jeremy Wright, Optimizing Site Design with Clement Yeung, Web Design Best Practices with Calvin Lee, and Online Marketing with Saul Colt.

As for my real personal thoughts? Well, those were saved for you, my pretties. Here’s a little segment I like to call #lessonslearnedsxsw
