So I’ve been a bit absent from this blog.

I know some blog­gers say that you’re not sup­posed to rec­og­nize when this hap­pens for a vari­ety of rea­sons — many of which I do agree with nor­mally — but in this case I don’t care.

Because the rea­son I’ve been away is that I have a new job, which also goes with the rea­son for this post.

So start­ing at the end of Octo­ber, I’ve been work­ing as the Louisville com­mu­nity man­ager for Yelp.com, which is a fancy title that means that, among many other things, I’m doing PR, mar­ket­ing and event plan­ning for the uber pop­u­lar web­site in town. 

It also means that you can look for­ward to some fun party DIYs on this blog in the future. One of my fave parts of my new job is that I get to put on soirees at local busi­nesses for peo­ple on the site about once a month. 

And at the begin­ning of Novem­ber, I got to fly out to San Fran­cisco to visit Yelp’s new swanky head­quar­ters and undergo training. 

I and the other new­bies stayed at the Hotel Tri­ton, a bou­tique hotel in down­town San Francisco. 

Love or hate the decor, it’s some­thing to talk about. I thought it would be fun to share some pics.

The focal point is def­i­nitely the large, bright yel­low lac­quered head­board. It pulls you in imme­di­ately when you enter the room. 

Hotel Triton’s hotel rooms also have some other fun finds mixed in.

Like the chalk­board in every room and hang­ing piece of chalk. I left a cheer­ful note for house­keep­ing when I checked out.

And I think I love these weird, retro, indus­trial sconces next to the bed.

Con­sid­er­ing this is San Fran­cisco, it only seems fit­ting to have Jack Ker­ouac and Allen Gins­berg on the bed­side table …

… along with the “On the Road” quotes scrolling up to the ceiling.

All in all, my stay at the Hotel Tri­ton pro­vided a mem­o­rable begin­ning to what I hope will be a very mem­o­rable new chap­ter in my life. (You can read my Yelp review of the Hotel Tri­ton here. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge.)

New year. New job. New things to learn. New oppor­tu­ni­ties for creativity. 

And many more trav­els, projects and fun bits ahead on this blog. Happy times ahead.
