Most certainly what I plan to do: http://t.co/crp0vRv Paul McCartney – Dance Tonight #gettingsoexcited #fb


I added myself on Muck Rack. But, let’s face it, I’m not one of the 500 most followed journalists on any social network. ;)  muckrack:
Over two years ago Muck Rack launched the definitive list of journalists on Twitter. Now we’ve assembled a list of journalists on Google+ by going through the 500 most followed journalists we’ve verified on Muck Rack. It so happened 140 (an omen?) of those 500 were on Google+. If you need link bait you could even extrapolate that to mean 28% of journalists on Twitter have joined Google+.  Anyhow, here’s the list. We’ll be updating it, so if you’re a journalist let us know your Google+ profile link. Sign up for the Muck Rack Daily or follow@MuckRack if you want to know when we make updates. Soon we’ll integrate this into the main MuckRack.com site. Update 7/27: We’ve started to add additional journalists on request breaking the 140 limit. +Chris Hardwick, Wired +David Pogue, New York Times +Nicholas Kristof, New York Times +Arianna Huffington, Huffington Post +Jenna Wortham, New York Times +Leo Laporte +Susan Orlean, The New Yorker +Paul Kedrosky, Bloomberg News +Cali Lewis +Alexandra Levit +Jake Tapper, ABC News +Darren Rovell, CNBC +Dave Ramsey +Jim MacMillan +Ezra Klein, Newsweek +Carl Zimmer +Brian Stelter, New York Times +Nick Bilton, New York Times +Alexis Madrigal, The Atlantic +Jemele Hill, ESPN +Cindy Boren, Washington Post +Jim Long, NBC News +Ali Velshi, CNN +Clayton Morris, Fox News +Hiroko Tabuchi, New York Times +Simon Dumenco, Advertising Age +Harry McCracken +Lance Ulanoff, PCMag.com +Alan Sepinwall +Felix Salmon, Reuters +Ben Parr, Mashable +John Markoff, New York Times +Jennifer 8.

Emily & Joel were married on 5.22.11 at their church in Bucktown, followed by an amazingly gorgeous reception at Promontory Point. There were saint candles (yes, saint candles), succulents, billy balls, Mexican banners, s’mores… and more. One of my favorite weddings to date!
