Introduction
G+ said I'm supposed to write something here to let you know that you've found the right Lara. Considering I know there's no other Lara Kulpa on the planet, unless you did what many do and misspelled my name (as "Laura"), you pretty much got the right girl. :)

Alright fine, here it goes:

I'm a community manager, social media junkie, and web consultant. This is the stuff that consumes most of my day, and what I love doing for a living. I truly enjoy helping people find their footing online, plant roots, grow and connect. It's awesome.

I'm also one of those artsy-craftsy people. I paint, draw, sculpt, and make jewelry. I sell almost all my stuff (with the exception of pieces I truly can't part with because I love them so). You can learn more about my artsy side at Art By Lara for now, until I get my other sites and shops set up. (I'm coming to the realization that I truly can't do it all, but it's painful for me to accept that, dammit. Be patient with me!)

Some other things I love: Retired racing greyhounds (and working with rescue groups), photography, chocolate, coffee, avocados, sugar snap peas, sushi and Riesling.

I love lots of things, so I could make that list a mile long, but you'd wind up bored and then I'd cry. So I'll stop there.

I currently live in Upstate NY with my boyfriend, his two cats (my greyhounds stayed with my dad), and in the house that my grandmother raised my dad in, where we're now raising our daughter!

So I've got this open-door policy. Email me, tweet me, facebook me, G+ me, any time. I love meeting new people and helping out any way I can!

I used to think poorly of elance. The competition with people who are willing to work for pennies was so stressful. However I've now secured a number of projects, all for a very fair rate, and I'm actually correcting some of the low priced people's mistakes on some.

If you haven't been there for a while - check it out again.

Everyone has their own methods, their own madness, and their own resources. Do a search for “blogging plugins I can’t live without” is going to net you nearly 48 million results. So why am I even going to bother adding to the cacophony? Because I’ve been…

Do you even know the answer to that second question? Hey, it happens. I can’t tell you how many times a new client comes to me with an utter disaster of a website. Or they hire me for business consulting, and we spend the entire first hour going over…
