It’s been a while since I’ve provided an update here, but I guess contributing to a couple of my dream companies is worth writing a blog post about!
In April, I took on a part-time position as a member of the #SFG Digital Team for my most favorite sports team, the San Francisco Giants. I help create pre-game and in-game content to engage fans on the @CafeSFG Twitter and Instagram handles, as well as manage the fan social media hub at AT&T Park. It feels incredible to do the things I love most as a small job—watching my Giants, Tweeting about it, and interacting with my fellow Giants fans on and offline! Hopefully the Giants will make the playoffs once again and I will get to stick with the gig till October! You can see a sample of my work in the Social Media section of my portfolio.
A few months ago, I also started contributing a few articles to POPSUGAR as part of their Voices team. I’ve wanted to work for POPSUGAR since forever, so being part of it as a contributing writer has been a true privilege. You can view a couple of the articles I’ve written in the Miscellaneous Publications/Works section of my portfolio. Still holding out for a full-time role with them one day!
Also in the Miscellaneous Publications/Works, you can view a couple of other pieces I’ve written in the last several months for SheKnows and Fandom (Another site I hope to work for full-time in the near future).
Finally, after a bit of a blogging hiatus, I think I’m finally ready to really start taking Shower Sweat Repeat to the next level. Stay tuned!
Thanks for reading!
Hello friends and followers!
I’ve been meaning to post a few site updates, but have been really busy these days—in good ways! For starters, I started freelancing for two websites—Bay Area HQ and Super Sunday HQ—back in October. For Bay Area HQ, I seek out celebrity and athlete events and appearances around the Bay Area and write short posts about them, just to let readers know that they’re happening. For Super Sunday HQ, I write about VIP parties, events, and concerts going on in Arizona during Super Bowl 49 week/weekend. Due to the more informative and straight-forward nature of these posts, I have decided not to include them on my portfolio on this site. However, you can check out my author pages here and here! I have also contributed a few seasonal lifestyle pieces to the fast-growing women’s news and features site Bustle.
Also in recent days, I made a huge stride in my professional life by landing my first “big girl” job! I am now a Community Manager for the Likes social network at MyLikes.com. My role is focused on monitoring user content and maintaining a safe and clean network for all, and I’m really excited about the opportunity to take on a bigger role in the tech space!
I’m really thankful for the incredible opportunities I had with these outlets and companies in 2014 and I look forward to working with them more in the next year and to see what else is in store. In turn, expect a few updates around the site (Also, please note that links to U Blush articles are currently broken as the site is no longer in existence, at least for now). Additionally, my blog Karen On recently established a couple of exciting partnerships with other brands, so I’ll be back to blogging real, real soon!
It’s been an excellent year for me in all aspects and I hope it was for you too. Thank you to everyone who helped me along the way so I can write this post to you today. Have an amazing 2015 and I will see you all there!

August is here! Hope everyone is enjoying this last month of summer!
I’m excited to announce that I have been chosen to be the fall 2012 Entertainment Editor of Pink and Black Magazine, an online magazine for young women! I’m stoked that I will be able to take on a prominent role (Pretty much the kind I aspire to) and be able to tackle on the topics I love for such a cool and interesting (And very aesthetically pleasing!) publication. I will be brainstorming ideas for the section every month, assign stories, work closely with staff writers and our amazing Editor-in-Chief, Anna, and pitch in my own weekly column. I can’t wait to finally see it all take off!
Please check out the website at pinkandblack-magazine.com, and follow our social networks on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest. The Editor’s Blog is a pretty fun read too, and to my understanding, Pink and Black is still looking for Staff Writers. So if you’re a female between the ages of 18-25 and are looking to get some writing experience, this is a great opportunity!
Life’s been pretty crazy. Always lots of writing to do, and more opportunities are still presenting themselves! We’ll talk again soon!
