Mayra Ruiz-McPherson, aka @marketingMisfit, is organizing #socStardom2 in partnership with Robin Ferrier of Johns Hopkins University's Montgomery Campus. The original #socStardom (a hashtag coined by Mayra) was in January 14 and was also done in conjunction with Robin. The January #socStardom was entitled "If You Build It Will They Come?" and featured influential marketing guru Rohit Bhargava and blogger Frank Warren. That event, hosted tby Network Solutions, was a big hit and the room @ JHUMCC was packed. A good time was had by all. If you missed it, you can see view the #socStardom recap on Mayra's blog here:
For #socStardom2, there will be a new fire side chat format and the speaker, Dave Evans (@evansdave) -- a social media marketing columnist for the Network and author of Social Media Marketing: One Hour a Day who's coming to our area from his home state of Texas -- will have center stage and will simply come to engage in fun, interactive discussions with the audience.

As an avid social media enthusiast, Mayra hopes to develop other such free programs for the Washington metro area in the near future. "I am hardly the social media know it all," says Mayra. "Rather, I see myself as a conduit, facilitating the learning for the people by the people ... me included!"
Come hang out with me, Mayra, Jill Foster, Robin Ferrier, Joe Logon and many others next Monday, March 9 from 6-8pm!
The best part, besides all the sharing, learning, fun and networking, is that this is a FREE event! Here are some links to get you on your way:

Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service.
From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
I love this timing but it does cause a disagreement in my house. My wife prefers to fly Eithad due to the timings. My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
