Rachel Thompson is the author of A Walk In The Snark, a humorous collection of essays based on her popular blog, RachelintheOC.com. She cofounded and teaches social media to writers at the Indie Book Collective. She’s also the only redhead in a sea of blondes in the OC (Orange County, CA), home of Disneyland (mice, eek). When not chasing after her two kids or reminding her husband to change the toilet paper roll, she likes sarcasm, coffee, and dirty martinis. She hates walks in the rain and pina coladas, if you’re keeping track.

  • WRITE Yes, we are writers. Writing is what we do. So…write! Easy, right? Not so fast. Family, job, bills, social activities, marketing (more on that in a sec) – sometimes it’s hard to find the time. But if you are in it to win it, so to speak, you must set a goal to write every day. Even if it’s just a few hundred words – which by the way is very doable – you need to prioritize your activities so writing is at the top of the list.

    If you want to make that leap from writer (unpublished) to author (published), write your book.

    I worked on my current release, A Walk In The Snark, over the past six months and released it in eBook format this past January. I have two children, a husband, and I’m a WAHM (Write At Home Mom) who writes and teaches social media. I still write at least two pages of my upcoming book The Mancode: A Survivor’s Tale every day in the midst of all my craziness. We all have reasons not to write.

    Ask yourself this simple question: Do you want to be published or not?

When I go past the newstands at the super market, I can’t help but to look the covers touting “lose 5 lbs quick” or “37 tips your man won’t tell you?”

And now I can ad “it’s the end of social media” to the list of articles to avoid.


Truth be told.. I had to look to see what old media pundit was explaining how Pepsi or Old Spice got it wrong.

But no way would a man keep those other tips to himself. Smart one’s will NOT tell their partners how to loose 5 lbs though :)

I need to update this photo, but I lost track of where I put that giant stack of books

Finally, a trailing report on whether suggesting social media for your company will get you fired.

Study shows that INC 500 companies use social media (which could mean anything) and they report that they will keep doing it.

Another chart we can throw on a slide for the next seminar session where someone asks “How can I convince my boss that social media is worthwhile?”

(my standard answer.. If you boss isn’t begging you to do more social media, you need to spend more time on LinkedIn.com.. looking of a new job)
