Today in my favorite class, writing for the media, my professor Rick invited local professionals to come speak to us about their careers writing for the media. There was definitely a common theme... "You ALL should be writing on a public interface EVER SINGLE DAY." Literally every single person.. From directors of communications to editors in chief, they all said having a blog is incredibly important, and maintaining it is even more important. Even if you have no followers ;) So I'm going out on that limb! These were the other points made that inspired me.

1.Start writing EVERYDAY
2.Learn how to write for the web
3.Embrace and welcome feedback – even harsh feedback
4.Learn grammar, style guides and use them daily
5.Embrace unexpected opportunities
6.Build your network
7.Build your social media profile
8.Take on meaningful work—for free or pay
9.Think about what you’re experiencing in your job
10.Be willing to accept jobs outside your “ideal” plan

11.Have a positive attitude and give back

On a completely different note, last nights crock pot dinner was a success! Anyone who wants a seriously piece of cake, delicious dinner MUST try this! 
I call it: Fiesta Chicken


       4 chicken breasts, frozen or thawed
1 (15 1/2 oz) can black beans, drained & rinse
1 (15 oz) jar of your favorite salsa
1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese 

Take 4 frozen, yes, frozen boneless chicken breasts and put into crock pot. Add 1 can of black beans, drained, 1 jar of salsa, and 1 can of corn drained. Keep in crock pot on low for about 4-5 hours or until the chicken is cooked. Once it's cooked, take it out and shred it. Return shredded chicken to the crock pot.  Add 1 package of cream cheese (just throw it on top!) and let sit for about 1/2 hour. Stir in the cream cheese. Serve over rice or lettuce or in warm flour tortillas.
