Girl Crush: Heather Walsh

  Heather Walsh and I both began our blog endeavors a little over five years ago, and somehow stumbled across one another on Twitter, where we then became fast friends. Watching her blog baby (cool) progeny grow leaps and bounds has been just as entertaining as watching her three real life babies grow over time. Heather lives in a world of chaos that involves a couple jobs, a few kids, a busy husband, and loads of fun and style. Her caring, patient, honest, no nonsense approach to life is a breath of fresh air in today’s world, and it’s one that this matter-of-fact,…

Key Social Trends from Facebook's Carolyn Everson

  This time last year I had just wrapped up a trip to ADMERICA! 2014 as one of the conference bloggers. Once a year, the American Advertising Federation’s national conference brings together a slew of creative minds to learn, network, and celebrate the winners of the American Advertising Awards. Wednesday kicks off the ADMERICA! 2015 conference in Vegas. And, I’m blogging again! The speakers on tap this week pretty much blow my mind, just like last year, which included AOL’s David Shing (aka @Shingy) and Facebook’s Carolyn Everson (plus many others). And, speaking of Carolyn Everson… Last year as I was…

  Welcome to Girl Crush, our way of spotlighting some of the most amazing women in and around the community. These ladies have something special. They enlighten us, inspire us and (we admit) give us cause for envy.   The first gal we’re crushing on is Michelle Kershner. She’s sassy, spunky and works to promote Frederick in the City of Frederick’s Department of Economic Development. (So fancy!) Okay, girl. Give our readers a snapshot of your life… I am a Frederick County native and grew up in Walkersville. I attended McDaniel College and earned a degree in history. However, all of my practical experience was…
