June 20th, 2019

Hi y’all, my name is Rea and I’m The Sunny Millennial! I am a 23-year-old woman living in Colorado. I love to write and create, and I’m excited to engage with all of you through this blog! I want to talk about millennial life as I love reading and thinking about it myself. I’m a generally positive person, so I plan to gear these articles to be upbeat, but also real and relatable; articles that talk about life situations we commonly deal with as millennials, as well as articles that give tips and tricks to millennial living. I know we’ve all been (or still are—like me heh) in a place... Read More

Social Media Influences Mental Health

September 20th, 2017

Mindlessly scrolling through our social media feeds when we have a few spare minutes is not the best habit when it comes to our collective psychology. The American Academy of Pediatrics has evaluated the potential for negative effects of social media in young kids and teens, including cyber-bullying and “Facebook depression,” but the issue impacts adults as well. There’s some good evidence that internet addiction may exist. A recent review of earlier research on the psychological characteristics, personality and social media use and found that it is plausible to speak about “Facebook... Read More

Boulder’s Going Topless This Weekend 9/5

September 2nd, 2015

This Saturday a peaceful rally of topless women and bare chested male supporters will gather on Pearl street for a demonstration. But is it legal for a woman to go topless in  Boulder? Yeah, it’s totally legal. Boulder city law does prevent nudity. So you must keep your “downtown” areas to yourself. Anyone over the age of 10 must adhere to this regulation. You cannot intentionally reveal your genitals in public. However, the torso is legal to show–female or male. This weekend, a group will gather on Pearl Street in recognition of the law. There will be topless women and... Read More

Social Media Digest: Why a Boulder Business should love Instagram

January 13th, 2015

We live in a beautiful town. Boulder is filled with smiling faces, gorgeous surrounding sceneries, and a facade that makes us reminisce of a small mountain town. There are parks, trails, historical points, and far too often are there sun rises and sets that shake the word beautiful to the core. It’s a instagramer’s dream. There are pictures that can captivate waiting around every corner and why that matters is because Instagram is becoming more embedded in marketing strategies for businesses both big, and small. There are over 150 million users per month and if there isn’t a... Read More

FestPix: Your New (Free) Event Photographers

December 11th, 2014

Co-founders Colton Chorpenning, Alex Goodwin, Adam Cardenas and Mark Fleming created FestPix in early 2014 as a means of providing free (yep, you read it right, free) photos to event goers of all kinds. As an event promoter and frequent patron, Chorpenning, a grad fresh out of CU Boulder, was noticing a lack of accessibility to all of those images you always see photographers running around snapping at concerts, festivals, marathons and the like. “I would have tons of people asking me to post or send them photos from the event. A real hassle if you have ever done it. I also experienced... Read More

A Social Media Policy Change for Small Businesses: Facebook will change the way you promote in 2015

December 2nd, 2014

Facebook has changed policies for the 2015 year and it’s going to adjust how your business promotes, advertises, and produces content for your page. On my own business pages, I’ve noticed that my engagement has really taken a turn downwards from recently having some of my heaviest engagement, via efficient organic strategies, in a long while. And it’s not because my strategies have been failing, but that Facebook is allowing way, way less promotional posts to reach consumer users. Here is what Facebook had to say:  “As part of an ongoing survey, we asked hundreds of thousands of... Read More

Why The Weatherman Can Be Your Business’ BFF: 3 Tips to making weather-relevant content

November 18th, 2014

When the weather turns cold and people find themselves inside more it’s a great opportunity to put those cozy, hot chocolate drinking web surfers to work! What do I mean: the cold – especially very harsh and snowy days that come out of no where, like last week in Boulder – gets people on their computers. They chat, watch videos, share and read; they get on Facebook, they tweet, and scroll through all the content they missed from earlier in the week. Essentially, snow makes for a lazy day attitude and this is a great, if not best time for businesses to push some unscheduled content into your,... Read More
