C'mon down! Winners | Surprises | Social Media

Today is the day I promised I would announce the first Rural Gone Urban giveaway winner {and make a life-changing announcement}. I'm literally high on life today. I'm at the Ag Chat Foundation Conference 2.0 in Nashville. [also known as NashVegas]. Surrounded by nerds, a plethora of macbooks, ipads, smartphones, dumbphones and a crowd of marketers who understand the importance and significance of using social media platforms in strategic marketing.

To my left and right are individuals who understand connecting through social media and utilizing journalism through these platforms. Jodi (twitter, blog) and I [among many, many others] took nerd to a whole new level.

Winner Whew. Winners. So, I decided to introduce old-school methods into selecting winners of the giveaway. I put each entry into a empty purse and drew a winner.

Really, I did.

The winner?? Kathy Houret!

Send me a DM and we'll get you set up with your new Southerne Indifference necklace!

Same City, New adventure Sometimes life offers you new opportunities.

Opportunities you're not looking for, but opportunities that are so intriguing, you'd be remiss if you didn't allow yourself to explore a new path that will ultimately lead you on a path that more closely aligns with your {20-something-year-old-self's} career goals.

If you're not already picking up what I'm putting on the table. I'll lay it out there. I'm leaving my current position and moving on to a PR firm in Oklahoma City to work as a Travel Blogger and eCommunity manager.

Whew. That was really difficult for me to put out there.

Changes are scary, exciting, and invigorating.

I'll keep you posted! :-)
