Brian used to joke that I dragged him into the world of social media but the truth is, Brian and I had a shared love of communications and the strange new world of "web logs" in 2006 intrigued us both. We embarked on the journey together - navigating through the uncertainties, endless questions and ultimately selling through the idea of "Nuts About Southwest". On April 21, 2006, Brian hit "post" on the first blog and we both sat anxiously at my computer waiting for the first comment. It came and, when we opened it, it was a sequence of four letter words...that started with the letter "f". Brian and I's mouths dropped open and then we looked at each other and started hugging and jumping up and down...we had officially entered the blogosphere.
I left PR for Marketing shortly after the blog launched but I knew it was in the best possible hands....the hands of a man that loved communication, our industry and our airline like no other. Rest in Peace Blog Boy. I love you.
