Online Marketing Summing June 6th-8th 2011

Online Marketing Summit (OMS) is coming to Minneapolis for a three-day Super-Regional event from June 6th – 8th.

Are you going? I am!  

I attended last years Summit and let me tell you if you have never been I would highly recommend it. At OMS is where all the Cool Online Marketing Peeps hang out and by peeps I just don't mean all your Twitter friends but most likely you will find one or five of your tweeps there.   

This year the Summit is 3 days long.  Day one is the “Online Marketing Boot Camp” and includes three tracks: Digital Marketing EssentialsTactics & Execution and Social Media Marketing.   I highly recommend the Digital Marketing Essentials.  The NordicClick team over at NordicClick is teaching this track, so stop by and say "Hi" because I will be hanging out with them. 

NordicClick’s team is excited to be leading this track that features a total of four workshops covering the absolute essentials of online marketing.  Members of our team as well as some guest speakers/panelists will teach these sessions and attendees will walk away with practical marketing advice on web strategy, usability, keyword research, SEO, email marketing, mobile marketing, tools, social media monitoring, and web analytics.

Changes......One Girls Month at a Glance!

I know, I know its been quit sometime sence my last "Real" blog post.  I have been very, very busy.

First "The Plumber" decided to outsource my job to save money, so I was scrambling to find a new gig that pays the bills.  Even though I can technically file for unemployment, I'm not one to sit on my ass and do that, but it is a back up plan.  And with the Hubs just switching jobs, money has been tight so this blow really hit home.

At the same time my Mother-In-Law was diagonesed with Breast Cancer. I'm sure you know from previous posts that I am not that close to her but she is my husbands mom and technically she is family and I do have a heart even though she has riped it out several times and stomped on it, I do care about her and was very worried. Anyways during the surgery her sister told the Hospital Staff that her (my husband and his brothers) were all morons and incapable of taken care of my mother in law while she recovered.  Us sister-in-laws did not take very kindly to that comment and even though my husband and his 5 brothers do not show their emotion or feelings very well they still love their mom and would do anything to help her.  So they banded together, confronted the Aunt and told her to get down from her High Horse and that they would be taken care of their mother and father from this point forward.  By-the-way my father-in-law was so stressed out over this mess that the Aunt caused that he broke out in shingles and was not able to even see my mother-in-law after her surgery and it also postponed her from coming home.

While all this was happening, I got an offer to Freelance for NordicClick  Interactive.  Starting out with just a few project doing Social Media, Blogging, Project Coordination and such.  Besides that go back three week before all this happened and I picked up an other Freelance gig helping Bonnie over at Wax Marketing .  You might rember me posting about a "Mom Traders" event, well Bonnie and I clicked and I have been helping her out with some really cool Web Ads, Marketing Ideas, Social Media and all the other fun stuff that goes along with a marketing adgency.  On top of that, I got a call from an other Marketing Agency to come in for an interview.   

Then the Kid decided that he wanted a car, ya I agree he's only 15 and has 6 months before he can drive but my husband got his first vehicle when he was 14 and you know you can't fight with a man about a car and really I'm surprised that I made them hold out this long.  Anyways so that consumed an entire week.

And if all the above stuff ain't enough, I found out why our dogs have been at each others throats.  The neighbor has two dogs that he lets run free and they have been invading Moose's garage, so it explains why Moose growls at Diesel every time I try and take her for a ride, and it also explains where the baby kittens went!  I'm glad I found out that it wasn't Moose.  We were really starting to think she was going mad, when all along she was just trying to protect her Territory's.

So needless to say, I am running with my head cut off, pulling my hair out and just trying to figure out how to make it threw my days.

Once I figure all this out, I will get back on the Blogging track and catch you all up on everything that goes on in this Crazy Girls Life more frequently.  And you all thought I was fooling you when I said I was "One Girl With Some Big Ideas!"

Till Then!
