A glimpse into the life and times of Julia. Loving, learning and growing my way through it all.

Starting from scratch.

Let's try this again. My last blog failed pretty badly. Live and learn. I'm not going to dwell on it like I did about eating three chocolates that were left out in the office yesterday. No, I'm over it. Onward and upward as "they" say.

For the past few months I've been trying to figure out what my next career step should be. I love my job but have an overwhelming urge to learn. To be challenged. To do more and excel like nobody's business.

A few weeks back I attended an Association of Fundraising Professionals seminar on social media and was inspired. The key speaker was Claire Kerr from Artez Interactive and the Queen of Social Media, if you ask me. Once I got over my girl-crush on Claire, she is Italian you know, I noticed that she kept throwing around the words "Social Media Manager" when referring to the person in a company who manages social media. And the light went on. That's where I want to go. I want to manage the social media for an amazing non-profit that does great things for the city of Toronto.

And so begins my journey. I am going to take every opportunity to learn about what it all means, how to do it well and love it while I'm doing it.

First stop...Social Media Week Toronto their name says it all!

Wish me luck,
