A few years ago, I started a blog, and then in the ‘Summer of 2008’ I stopped writing for it. So much in my life was changing and I didn’t really have a personal center to write from. Since then, I have moved to California, lived in both San Francisco, and LA and have worked for two of the world’s most interesting and visited websites, Hi5, and MySpace. I meet a lot of great people along the way, and I am now looking for yet another job in the Social Media space.
I would love it if that job involved getting funding for Socialhelix.com, a social calendar/ event network idea I had with a few friends over 2 years ago. Today we have a business plan that is about 1 year old, and lacking the experience I have gained working at both Hi5, and MySpace. In the next few days, I hope to put some spit polish on the business plan and to update it for the current economy, and with a few tidbits of knowledge that I have gained over the past year.
As of now, I could either see myself taking another job, consulting for awhile, or getting SH funded. I however, don’t know where my preferences lie for living. In SF I have some of the world’s smartest and brightest in the web working to create the web standards of tomorrow, but in LA I have the opportunity to see a different creative class; one that is playful, and just as smart in their own way. In the next few weeks I hope to evaluate my options and make a decision on where I should live.
I do finally plan on bringing my furniture from Milwaukee out to California, or going back to sell it once and for all.
I really feel like the last year was one of transition, and this year will be about personal growth, as today is the 1st day of a new decade for me. Maybe this decade demands that I write my 1st book or screen play. 😉
