Social Media Roundup: The #STEMPrincess Kickstarter Project

Monday, October 14th, 2013

AmazingAdventuresPrincessesPlanetSTEMWell, my fab 13, we’re almost half way through this Kickstarter shin dig – WOOT!  Forgive me for a moment with this post, but I must do a little herding of all the info on social media around this #STEMPrincess project, to have it nicely and neatly fit into one blog post – ready?  Here. We. Go!

The Kickstarter Site – where the magic happens, and where you can become an amazing Superstar STEM backer!

The Campaign within and behind the campaign – here’s where I post all the updates, and a few backer-only updates, like our campaign button program – for backers only.

PR on the Kickstarter program – at the launch.

All about the Princess Manifesto – both at the blog and prettied up at Slideshare – both as a slide set and as a one pager.

Inside Indiana Business Studio (i) video – on girls, Indiana and STEM.

Two infographics:
1. Indiana, Girls and STEM and
2. Girls and STEM – by the numbers.

Video 1 – Best part about the entire campaign
Video 2  - Why not STEAMED instead of STEM?

Pete the Planner’s radio show - original airdate – October 13, 2013 – 2nd hour.

The Local Lady of Richmond’s blog post on our project.

A piece I wrote for Drug Topics on why I’m doing this project, and why it is important.

The primary Twitter page @ErinLAlbert, and our extra special hashtag at Twitter, Vine, Instagram, etc – #STEMPrincess.

This may be a little bit of overkill, and of course, the haters are already coming out.  Haters gonna hate, but I don’t really give a damn.  Why?  Because girls aren’t winning in STEM in Indiana, and as a STEM professional and native Hoosier girl myself, I can’t let this problem go until we get more girls in Indiana fired up about STEM, and create a better future not only for local and national economies, but for my entire gender.

There you have it! More goodies will be coming, but I wanted to get them in one nice neat little package for you and me to keep track of.  If you’re one of our current almost 60 backers on this project, btw, THANK YOU for helping Hoosier girls.  If you’re not–we’re running out of time!

Committed

Monday, January 9th, 2012

This may very well be the hardest post in my life that I’ve ever written, so please bear with me.  Here goes.

First off–where did it come from?  Well, it was provoked by a trifeca of events, and usually the universe presents stuff to me in 3s, so I saw it as a sign to let ‘er rip:

1.  Reading Jeff Jarvis’s book, Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age Improves the Way We Work and Live.  He’s basically a writer that feels his blog is a little too “TMI.”  But, brotha’s doing something right if he made almost half a million in book royalties.

2.  Talking to a fellow writer about #1, (Pete The Planner) he too shared with me that sometimes the “TMI” posts are his best work.  He also was kind enough to warn me that they can also be epic failures too.  (That’s why I promised him I’d keep this post in the draft box for a couple of days to think through it before posting…I am grateful for his advice.)

3.  Over the holidaze, I’ve been reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s follow up book Eat, Pray, Love: Committed: A Love Story.  And frankly, of the 3 items – her book inspired me the most to lay down this blog and put it out there.

Enough avoidance.

OK, what I’m about to share is something I don’t parade around shouting from the rooftops–because it happened when I was young (and stupid).  But, back (long ago) in my (way too young) twenties….

I got married.

I also two years later got divorced.

Typically, when I share this with people I trust, their first reaction is, “Wow, I had no idea you were married!” Well, good.  It’s really not something I’m super proud of.  (Which honestly strikes at the heart of WHY I don’t tell this story often–namely, because I was a tool for getting married so young.)  In fact, I think getting married might just have been one of the dumbest things I ever did in my life.  But, it in other ways was one of the smartest things I ever did too.

Let me explain.

First, if you’ve already read Gilbert’s book, you probably already get where I’m coming from, right?  If you didn’t read the book, I encourage you to do so.  Pay extra attention to the red coat story, and Elizabeth’s own mother’s Planned Parenthood story and you’ll get where I’m coming from.  I don’t want to steal too much of Liz’s thunder, but suffice it to say, she spent a LOT of time thinking about marriage and what it means to a wife…and a proper husband, for that matter.  She also in full frontal fashion comes out and says that men benefit more from marriage than women.  Generally, I agree with this–with (very) rare exception.

In my own debacle of a marriage, I lived the red coat story, in a different way.  Although we never had children (which really was a phenomenal blessing) I did feel like I got sucked into the vortex that was my husband, and lost myself a bit along the way.  I changed my name to his (which in retrospect truly WAS the dumbest thing I ever did).  We moved for HIS job.  When I relocated with him, I couldn’t easily find a job overnight–but I did it–without much help from him.  It was also about HIS schedule a lot of the time too when we planned things.  He also hated my college debt (which wasn’t terribly much, but I continued to pay it and paid it off, despite his whining).  My career and my life at times felt like it was on the back burner during those two years, and I began to resent it.

Now, don’t get me wrong – it definitely takes two to destroy a marriage, and I was as guilty as anyone else, and I’m sure his side of the story is different from mine, but, it was in response to losing myself in HIM and HIS life that really became the final nail in the coffin for me during those two years.  I lost my “e,” and gained…nothing but more headaches.  In my own personal experience, he benefited a hell of a lot more than I did from the marriage.

On the other hand, getting married was one of the smartest things I ever did too.  I learned who I was and am.  I learned what I needed from a relationship with a significant other, and what I didn’t need, and what I wasn’t willing to put up with as a member of a two-party organization.  I also learned that it was important for me to NEVER lose my own identity to another person.  This was and remains a non-negotiable.

These were really rich lessons for me to learn as someone under age 30, and we all must learn these lessons sooner or later to truly develop into the best versions of ourselves.  Last but certainly not least, relocating with Mr. e led me to some of the best friends a mentors of my life to this day, and for that, I’m extremely grateful.  I also got away from Indiana, and saw that there truly is a bigger and wider world out there.  (Which, frankly, I think should be required for any native Hoosier. That’s subject of another entire post.)

Why am I sharing this with you?  Well, 1. I don’t want my friends to make the dumb mistakes I did. When I give the advice that no one should get married under age 30, I speak from experience.  2.  I also think that there are benefits to being married–definitely for dudes, but also potentially for women, maybe.  If the parties are smart about it.  Like, for the almost-marrieds: 1. Get a prenup ALWAYS; 2. DO NOT change your name, ever – you are ALREADY born complete and you are NOT chattel; 3. DO NOT lose yourself in another–EVER.  You are uniquely you for a reason – so find someone who makes you a better version of you, and who celebrates your awesomeness already for whom you already are – don’t compromise who you are for the sake of being a “pair.”  Ladies and gentlemen–if you can find that in a significant other – then GO FOR IT!

Let me be clear: I’m not anti-marriage.  I am pro-YOU.

I know.  TMI, right?  Well, maybe.  I tweeted before a quote said by a wise man, and said to me by a wise woman mentor, which goes something like the following: A smart young man can do the best thing for his life by marrying a great woman as soon as possible; a smart young woman can do the best thing for her life by delaying marriage, or never getting married at all.  I would guess that Gilbert would also say this is sage advice.

Women AND men need to focus in their twenties (and sometimes even longer) on becoming the best version of themselves…and that doesn’t take a plus one mucking up the waters.  It takes introspection, independence, and self-sustainability.

So, in conclusion–don’t be me and stupid.  Be smart.  Really think through committing to another before you do it.  And don’t lose yourself in the process if you do get married.

And read Gilbert’s book.  Frankly, I think it ought to be a token gift to every couple announcing their engagement.

Thanks for listening.  And don’t worry, it is a safe bet that I’m not going to talk any more about this post again. Ever. Once was hard enough.

Book Tribes

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Instead of spending my time making sure my cites are Bluebooked for my law review note (not my fave, can ya tell?) I thought I’d talk instead about something important around being a writer/author of a book, and here it is.  Have. A. Tribe. For. Your. Book.

Seth Godin talks about this all the time, but I thought it was worth mentioning again, with a local (Indy) flavor.  You should be building in a tribe or already have a tribe for your book.  If you self publish, you already know this is critical.  But, even if you’re going the traditional publishing route…?  The publisher still wants to know if you’ve got a built in tribe to buy your book before they’ll sign you up.

I’m still building my tribe for my new book (but this is a cool cadre of awesome women to get into my own network and a genuine pleasure!)  But I thought I’d shut up about me tonight, and share with you some of my writer friends who also have awesome tribes around their books, and in which I argue you should consider joining their tribes, if the issues are of interest to you.  Here goes!

Dr. Elaine Voci -she, hands down, is my writing book mentor!  She’s written several books, but my favorite of hers is: Bridge Builders: Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things – her tribe is awesome people doing awesome things, hidden in the every day experience.  LOVE it and love her!

Peter Dunn AKA Pete The Planner – author of 60 Days to Change: A Daily How-To Guide With Actionable Tips for Improving Your Financial Life, Pete’s got a tribe he’s building around smart money management. You should consider following him if you hate to part with your money (and who doesn’t?) He also has a radio show called The Skeptical Economist.  Check him out if money is your thing.

Lori Leroy – author of the new book, The Inadequate Conception: From Barry White to Blastocytes: What Your Mom Didn’t Tell You About Getting Pregnant. Infertility is a huge issue these days, and Lori isn’t afraid to share her challenges with getting pregnant, in order to help others.  There’s a big tribe out there on this, and congrats to Lori for daring to write this book!

Nancy Ahlrichs – author of several books, but her most recent is: Igniting Gen B & V: The New Rules of Engagement for Boomers, Veterans, and Other Long-Termers on the Job.  Nancy is great at best understanding how different generations can work best together…and I love that she’s taking the time to make sure that others take advantage of understanding each other in the workplace!

Ingrid Cummings - The Vigorous Mind: Cross-train Your Brain to Break Through Mental, Emotional, and Professional Boundaries – Ingrid’s tribe wants to do better, period.  Who doesn’t want that?  EVERYONE wants that!  Read her book to better understand HOW.

Mickey Maurer – Mr. Maurer (although he hates it when I call him that, but I do out of respect!) has a new book out called: 19 Stars of Indiana.  If you know Indy, you already know Mr. Maurer; however, his new book is the counterpart to his first book on 19 Women Stars of Indiana! He, no doubt, has a super sonic tribe that maybe one day I’ll get close to approaching…

I have a LOT of other book writing friends, but I wanted to share with you some of my local friends who dare to share their thoughts via writing…and their tribes!  So, if you’ve been on that fence, thinking about writing a book, you’d better stop and ask: do I have a tribe for this?

If not, get to building!
