Hey Smart Girls! As you make your way onto Google+, let me know you're here. I have a Smart Girls circle set up (of course) and want to make sure I get you all in it. (it would be fantastic to have 50k+... is that possible??)

I am going to go off the reservation here and start a "Mom" circle and a "Relationship" circle. +1 if you want to be part of one, and let me know which one. These should be fun.

On July 12, 1862, the Army’s Medal of Honor was signed into law. Today, an Army Ranger who lost his right hand while tossing an enemy grenade away from fellow soldiers in Afghanistan will be awarded the Medal of Honor. What makes this more amazing is he is STAYING a Ranger. What a hero.
Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry, who will have the Medal of Honor placed around his neck July 12, 2011, by the president of the United States, recounted the moment after his hand was taken from him by a gr...

This, I love. Sage advice.

Being good with social media isn't tough. You don't need to spend money on some guru's video course. You only really need to stick with two pretty simple rules:

1) Be useful.
2) Don't be a jerk.

You can throw other parts in there as you want ("hustle your tail off", "lift up people under you", "focus on your own game"), depending on where you want to end up in the food chain, but I'm convinced lasting success boils down to those two things.

Agreed, but that's not how I meant it. Definitely could have worded it better. Quality over quantity has no requisites or limits in either direction.

I am utterly horrified right now at our legal system. That is all.

Story
Tagline
I'm a marathoner. I run a lot. I am communications and media consultant. I am a Conservative. I am mom and wife. I am a Smart Girl. All in a day's work.
Introduction

Hi! I'm Rebecca!

  • I run. A lot. I'm a marathoner. I'm a trail runner. I'm an ultra runner-to be.
    Smart Girl Politics
     Board Member and ex-Spokesperson and Communications Director 
  • becs09 on Twitter
  • Public Relations and Strategic Communications Executive
  • Happy wife to the love of my life, Matthew, and mommy to three amazing young girls
  • Conservative
  • Snarky at times… Apologizing up front.

What you will find me posting about and commenting on:

  • Politics – Policy, Legislation, Advocacy, Campaigns, Grassroots… everything you could possibly think of under this
  • U.S. Military - Defense appropriations/spending, big ass guns, Veterans, everything.  I am about as pro-U.S. military as you can be.  FYI.  (and I am the Proud sister of a Sailor.)
  • Parenting and Mommyhood
  • New Media and Outreach Technology
  • Public Relations, Public Affairs, and Advocacy
  • Sports (especially Red Sox, Patriots, and Mountaineers, but I am pretty much a sports junkie).
  • Fitness and healthy living
  • Food and Wine
  • The Arts – Dance, architecture, and classical art
  • Science, Health and Technology

I am passionate about my passions.  I really never mean to be rude – ever.  And I don’t like it when others are rude either.  Just an FYI.

I love shoes.  And running. And fitness and healthy eating. And chocolate.  And coffee.  And ice cream.  And wine.  My kids, my husband, and the Lord are in this mix. I swear.  But if you asked me to rank them, it would be crazy hard for me.

  • George Washington University
