Creating_Media_Kit

Disclosure: I am an Office Champion, an ambassador for Microsoft. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I’ve often struggled with putting together my media kit.

Holiday Gift Guide 2014

Holiday_Gift_Guide

I’m trying a little something new from Microsoft. It’s called Sway and it’s making me giddy with excitement. What’s Sway? Sway is an app for expressing your ideas in a new way and across devices. If the Office 365 apps were college students, Sway would be their sorority house. If you ever want to get a techy girl hot and bothered, ...
