Working 9-5: Why I’m Live-Tweeting my Wednesdays
For the first time last week, I shared my virtual workspace via Twitter. An open invitation for my friends and followers to experience A Day in the Life of a Graphic Designer was released on social media, along with a 9am-5pm schedule.

A Day in the Life
Have you been wondering how a graphic designer like me spends their day? Are you tired of working from home all alone? Did you ever think a regular workday would be exciting?
I invite you to join me for A Day in the Life of a Graphic Designer. I’ll be sharing my workday with you via Twitter tomorrow (August 12) in a “productivity crawl” from 9am to 5pm (PST).
You don’t have to be a graphic designer to participate, but you will get a glimpse of my workspace, pick up a few tips and tricks on productivity, and hopefully get some much-needed social out of social media. Use this time to get stuff done in your own way.

I asked my friends on social media to get me started, so let’s dive right in!

Listen to the Phoenix Fiction Writers Podcast Episode 25: The Ins and Outs of Author Branding
Being a guest on the Phoenix Fiction Writers podcast was a whole new experience, but branding is a topic I’m always happy to talk at length about. I hope you’ll give it a listen!
Establishing Your Visual Brand
I had the opportunity to write a guest blog post for Phoenix Fiction Writers. I don’t get to nerd out about graphic design very often, so I really cut loose and had fun with a topic that combines two of my passions: writing and good design!
