New technologies and some tried-and-true service

So today I’m writing about work — well I’m writing about my perspective on the stuff I write about for work. I’ve been infused, invigorated and inspired with some much-needed creative bursts — likely triggered by my company’s expected launch of a new mobile-banking portal. I’ve actually enjoyed thinking about what this site could be and how I can work to fulfill some personal goals or missions through the site’s story angles and coverage. In my last post, I mentioned Uganda and underserved women there whom a friend was trying to help. (And when I write ‘underserved,’ I mean underserved …

Death, evaporation … and same ole sayings

So, December and January did not treat me so well. I finally understand what pure exhaustion is! After traveling for the better part of six months (save for the month of December, when I was consumed with Holiday goings-on), I finally hit a wall.

Suffering from writer’s block …

Perhaps I will find some inspiration from the agony of PR-speak and canned quotes, even if I feel it …

The day after Derby

Tracy’s log: May 4 — The day after Derby! I don’t have a great deal to report today. It’s a relatively lazy day in the Bluegrass. Personally, this week will be a busy one … for work, life and YPAL. Speaking of YPAL, we have an advisory lunch coming up this Friday. Be sure to check out YPAL’s Web site to register and learn more!
