Leaving the New Relic “Aquarium”

My desk at New Relic, Inc. started out 2 years ago in a high traffic area. So to meet new people, I would ask teammates who walked past to draw me a fish.

I explained that I felt like we were in an aquarium swimming to and from on the 10th floor where marketing sat. (My Pre-K teacher side was clearly showing itself.)

After a few months, I was able to collect a variety of fishes that I put on display by my desk. (And then I decided to collect other post-it drawings and then I moved desks…but anyways I finally took out the fishes on my last day.)

And what I saw was that an aquarium is beautiful when we have different fishes swimming in it. :)

Thanks old and new fishes for joining my New Relic journey! Now off to swim in a different aquarium!

Why My Favorite “Session” at a Marketing Conference Was a Visit to its Claw Machine

I had the pleasure to go to my first MozCon, a digital marketing conference, with two other co-workers. There were many great speakers who talked about SEO, content marketing, social media, and much much more. Despite my efforts to take notes, live tweet, or retweet during #MozCon sessions, I found that the most intriguing part of the conference didn’t come from the stage.

Just to the side of where many vendors were set up, there was an area with MozCon-branded video games and claw machines. A few people, myself included, played the free 8-bit video arcade games. There was a smaller claw machine that had a small swag prizes, but it was very obvious that many people, myself included, wanted to play the bigger claw machine.

Highlights from #MKTGnation

I definitely haven’t been to a conference of this size since maybe TFA induction days. It’s also been a while since I was in Vegas, therefore Marketo conference was on a whole ‘nother level.

Despite the overwhelming number of bodies at the conference, these were some of the highlights from the conference trip.

1. Fangirl moment

2. Exactly how I think about marketing.

3. Dinner with the teammates
