Sunday Shout Out! Laurie Ruettimann

Sunday Shout Out Laurie Ruettimann - The Anti-Social MediaAs a blogger, I take my inspiration from a lot of people in many different backgrounds. One of my inspirations is Laurie Ruettimann.

Laurie is a self-described “failed Human Resources professional and crazy cat lady.” Laurie blogs at The Cynical Girl. I don’t know how to describe her blog, except that it is awesome and you need to read it. She writes about business, HR, her cats, and whatever she feels is important. She takes on big issues, like why we need resumes, to the smaller things, like why Facebook questions suck so hard.

In every blog post Laurie’s either giving practical advice, making you laugh, or making you think. It takes one hell of a blogger to be able to do all of that successfully, and she sets the bar pretty damn high for the rest of us.

Thanks Laurie for being an inspiration, and making me want to get more cats to replace my Facebook friends.

Whose blog is rocking your world this week? I want some new, quirky things to read.

    Jay, that is so nice. Thank you. I’m really honored and I love that new cat picture. You have the best mash-up of talents (singing, writing, cartoon drawing, critical thinking skills, social media savvy) in the entire universe.

      Thanks Laurie! I aim to be singing writer who thinks critically about social media savvy.

    I love Laurie cause she tells it like it is! Plus she’s a great person to know and talk to!

      I love Laurie because if I was a chump, she’d tell me. What more can I ask of anyone?

    I think this is the tallest anyone has ever drawn Laurie. She looks at least twice as tall as Scrubby.

      Clearly, this is an idealized form of Laurie.
