This is officially our official blog. you'll find all official 29 blog stuffs here. Delicious.

Today started with a bang:

6:00 a.m. – Phone call with the folks in Qatar to present some mood boards (I was in the mood!)
7:00 a.m. – check in with the office (still there)
8:00 a.m. – create site charter for new client (and what a site!)
9:00 a.m. – Skype meeting with Breast Cancer Foundation and our friends at BuzzShift (wait a minute, I don’t know how to Skype!)

This was to be my first Skype meeting with a client and I was a little nervous about it. Would my personality come through okay? Would I be able to read the client through a digital window? Would I be able to project strategy via a tiny web cam? And most importantly, would I know where to look? 

And then I realized, I had to get out of my pajamas… well at least the bottoms!

The meeting was great – I felt like I was in the room. I could read people’s body language and see their reactions. It was amazing. I highly recommend it for anyone that is out of the office and needs to conduct a meeting. Much better than a conference call. I’m not sure if I would say it is the same as an in-person meeting, but I’ll have another chance to compare next week when I have my second Skypefest with the same client. 

And if you’re wondering how the day ended… well, it hasn’t yet. I’m packing to head for the airport for a 7:30 pm flight to San Diego to meet with clients tomorrow… No rest for the remote!
