#FollowFriday: Lindsay Bell

Alright. I know Lindsay Bell got a #FollowFriday last October, but there is a very good reason for the repeat.

She is joining our team!

For a couple of years now, we’ve been trying to find a way to work together. You see, not only do I think she’s hilarious, I find her writing extremely compelling and very engaging.

Sadly, the reason we have finally been able to make it work is because Lisa Gerber is leaving us. Lindsay is stepping into her spot to manage the guest bloggers here, create content we can sell (like the webinar we’re having next Thursday about Google analytics), and (finally) launch Spin Sucks Pro.

Lindsay spent most of her career with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and most recently was in charge of content at Radian6 and then Jugnoo. When she started at Jugnoo, I figured if we couldn’t hire Lindsay directly, the next best thing was to have her as a client!

But now she’s working with us and that means you’ll have LOTS of interaction with her.

Some things you need to know about her:

  • She pretends she’s a tough maritimer, but really is one of the kindest and most considerate people I know
  • She has a 13-year-old son
  • She has super bad allergies, which makes her fit in really well with the rest of us here
  • She loves beer like I love wine
  • She is very smart and extremely witty
  • She doesn’t “do” office politics (it’s a good thing; I dont either) and she doesn’t do windows
  • She lives in Toronto so we really are doing this whole global, virtual thing
  • She has a great sense of humor
  • She smokes and the only reason I’m saying this is because I’ve been trying to guilt her into quitting for years so now you can help me with that goal!

So if you don’t already know Lindsay, please welcome her into the Spin Sucks fray. And, if you do know her, please comment below on what you love about her so others get to know her a little bit better.

  • Bad. Ass. 
     
    Lindsay is a dear friend and I’m thrilled about this news! Ok, well, sad about lisagerber  leaving the A&D ranks, but I love, love, love Lindsay. 

    •  @jasonkonopinski  I know. It’s been a little rough because I’m both sad and very excited.

      •  @ginidietrich Indeed. You know what’s next? Ahem. 

        •  @jasonkonopinski Girl talk? Podcast? 

        •  @ginidietrich All those things. 

        • belllindsay

           @jasonkonopinski  @ginidietrich PAR-TAY!!!!

    • belllindsay

       @jasonkonopinski  lisagerber Squeeeeeee!!!! Love you Jason, it’s been *killing* me keeping this a secret! 

      •  @belllindsay  So, so very excited for you! 

      •  @belllindsay  @ginidietrich Oh boy, am I going to keep you busy with GP submissions. 🙂 
         
        I’ve got some real doozies simmering. #threat

        • belllindsay

           @jasonkonopinski  @ginidietrich Yay! Can’t wait!

  • Nice t meet you Lindsay.

    • belllindsay

       @Sally Falkow Thanks Sally! I’m so excited to finally be joining the gang at SpinSucks – but I’m nowhere *near* as nice and considerate as @ginidietrich makes me out to be. 😉 

      •  @belllindsay  @Sally Falkow See. She pretends she’s tough.

        •  @ginidietrich  @belllindsay Then we should get on like a house on fire!  The iron fist in the velvet glove.

        • belllindsay

           @Sally Falkow  @ginidietrich Just call me Gorbachev. 😉 

  • rdopping

    Yay @belllindsay Lindsay. So sad to see lisagerber go.
     
    Great addition. Met her. She’s a feisty little pixie and she’s from TORONTO! Only the BEST place in the world (next to whatever place you live in….reader).

    •  @rdopping  I know. I’m sad, too. But you’re right about Lindsay…she is a feisty little pixie!

    • belllindsay

       @rdopping  lisagerber “Reader” – ha! You always make me laugh Ralph! 🙂 

  • belllindsay

    Man, following in the footsteps of Lisa Gerber….? Dem are HUGE shoes to fill, and it is bittersweet because I adore her so. But I’ll do my best!! 😀 

    •  @belllindsay You’ll be great!

      •  @ginidietrich  @belllindsay Lisa has big feet?

        • belllindsay

           @KenMueller  @ginidietrich Massive. 😉 

        •  @belllindsay  @KenMueller  @ginidietrich Like bread loaves. 

        •  @jasonkonopinski  @belllindsay  @KenMueller  @ginidietrich Haven’t you ever noticed I don’t post photos of my feet? I have feet for social media. 

        •  @jasonkonopinski  @belllindsay  @KenMueller  @ginidietrich Maybe she’s Hawaiian, always walking around barefoot. That’ll do it. 

    • geoffliving

       @belllindsay Congratulations, Lindsay!!!

      • belllindsay

         @geoffliving Thanks Geoff, been a rocky month but alllll worth it for this opportunity! 😀 

  • margieclayman

    Dear Lindsay,
     
    I am SO happy for you!!
     
    However, please be prepared for me to send you 7-10 completely bogus post ideas a week that you will HAVE to sift through because at least one of them will be legitimate, I just won’t tell you which one or even give you a clue 🙂
     
    Congratulations to all!!!

    •  @margieclayman Do you really send that many?? I don’t believe you.

      • belllindsay

         @ginidietrich  @margieclayman Bring. It. ON!  🙂 

      • margieclayman

         @ginidietrich I haven’t been, but I will now 😀 

  • rustyspeidel

    GREAT snag.

      • cc_chapman

        @belllindsay *hugs*

  • This is awesome. Really bummed to see Lisa go, but…this whole social media thing means we can stay connected. And now I can expect an email from Lindsay telling me I’m almost at my deadline for my next post….

    • belllindsay

       @KenMueller HA! Don’t make me, Mueller! 

      •  @belllindsay I think I have one like…next week.

        • belllindsay

           @KenMueller You expect me to work today!!?? Pfffffttt. 

        •  @belllindsay Pfffffttt is really the best way to respond to @KenMueller to about everything. 🙂

        •  @katskrieger  @belllindsay et tu, Kat?? 

        • belllindsay

           @katskrieger  @KenMueller Right????? lol

  • Yay for you @belllindsay !!! Couldn’t be happier for you, my fellow Canuck. When we met in Toronto, it felt like we’d already met. Sorry to hear that Lisa is leaving (best wishes to you Lisa), but “dem huge shoes” will be more than aptly filled by you Lindsay:) BIG congrats! PAR-TAY! Cheers! Kaarina

    • belllindsay

       @KDillabough Awwwww yeah! Looking forward to learning TONS from this talented team, that’s for sure!

       @TaraGeissinger From your mouth to God’s ears! Lol – and thanks! 😀 

  • Congrats @belllindsay ! Very excited for you! Sad to see @lisagerber go, but I know you will be awesome. I’ve enjoyed the few convos we have had so far. Here’s to a great new job with some awesome folks (wink wink @ginidietrich ) . Hopefully you will get some sleep tonight. 🙂

    • belllindsay

       @katskrieger  @lisagerber  @ginidietrich HA! Yes, me on the front porch from 1 to 3 am this morning was not fun! LOL Thanks for the kind words, and the “getting to know you” feelings are definitely mutual! 🙂

  • yvettepistorio

    I. am. excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is all…
     
    And @lisagerber  I’ll miss you but I’ll be stalking you on Facebook and might even send you some emoticons randomly on Skype 🙂 

    • belllindsay

       @yvettepistorio  @lisagerber HAHAHAHA! A fellow exclamation point abuser!!! We should start our own 12 Step program!!!!! 😀 

      •  @belllindsay  @yvettepistorio  Oh. Dear.

      •  @belllindsay  @yvettepistorio  @lisagerber See? I thought you both were exclamation mark abusers!!!! @yvettepistorio , that would make my day. Especially if you can find me new ones to upload. 

        • yvettepistorio

           @Lisa Gerber  @belllindsay  @lisagerber I’ll work on it cause you totally need the face palm and ninja!

        • belllindsay

           @yvettepistorio  @Lisa Gerber  This convo is seriously cracking me up!! 

  • Congratulations, Lindsay! I know you’ll take it from great to greater. 🙂
     
    Also, new rule: No one can have too much fun without me. Actually, I’ll still be here –  just under a different domain, so you’re not getting rid of me that easily. 

    •  @Lisa Gerber Now you can REALLY do guest posts for SS

    • belllindsay

       @Lisa Gerber *hugs* I’ll be calling you every other day, for sure. 😉 

    •  @Lisa Gerber You’d better still be here! We don’t want to have fun without you.

    • margieclayman

       @Lisa Gerber I’ll miss ya lady. Stay in touch!

    •  @Lisa Gerber We’ll miss you Lisa!!! All the best!

    •  @Lisa Gerber All the best to you Lisa! Okay, so we’ll only half miss you, right? It’s a sad half, however. 🙁 

      •  @Carmelo  @Lisa Gerber @margieclayman @hessiej @ginidietrich Oh you guys aren’t getting ridding of me. Nothing to miss! I’ll be on all the internetworks having fun. And for a while, I’ll be on them more than usual, since I’ll have a bit of spare time. 🙂 

  • wilbore

    @belllindsay sounds awesome! Congrats again!

    • belllindsay

      @wilbore CHeers Sarah, how’s your new gig going??

  • cloverdew

    @belllindsay YAY!!! For reals. I knew you had a new gig, but this is awesome. Congrats

    • belllindsay

      @cloverdew Thanks lady! It’s been *brutal* keeping this a secret. Onwards and upwards, right!? Very happy. 🙂

      • cloverdew

        @belllindsay Very excited for you. Also, let’s e-mail or Skype or something soon. Would love to catch up and hear all about the new gig.

      @hessiejones Thanks Hessie!! “Sisters….are doin’ it for themselves!” lol I know you like the ’80’s tunes! @ginidietrich @SpinSucks

  • Make us proud Lindsay!!! And remember, you’re partially American now so don’t forget to succumb to their inane “ways” of spelling! Inject ‘chesterfield” and “pop” now and then just to educate on our colloquialism… and most of all HAVE Friggin’ FUN working with @ginidietrich 

    •  @hessiej  @ginidietrich I want poutine. You can keep that awful Rickards, though. 

    • belllindsay

       @hessiej  @ginidietrich LMAO! I’ve already been in a panic about adding U everywhere where it’s not needed! I’ll be sure and toss in an “oot and aboot” once or twice also! LOL Cheers Hessie, miss you!! xoxox

  • Congrats all the way around! Big changes ahead for many kick ass ladies!!! I’m sure @belllindsay  will be an amazing addition to the team (fellow allergy sufferers unite!) and I’m confident @Lisa Gerber will rock her business like no one else!! Best to all of you!
     

    • belllindsay

       @EricaAllison  @Lisa Gerber I can’t imagine venturing out and launching a business. Lisa is much braver than I am, I’ll tell you *that*!! 🙂 It’s good times all around, thanks for the congrats Erica. 🙂 

  • Congratulations, @belllindsay ! And best of luck to @Lisa Gerber ! Okay, I’m done. Two exclamations points in a row is plenty. Right? Right?

    • belllindsay

       @Erin F.  @Lisa Gerber HA! All the exclamation points!!!! 

    •  @Erin F.  Yes, congrats @belllindsay  ! And best of luck @Lisa Gerber  So, Lindsay will incite plenty of witty banter in the large Spin Sucks pond, I take it?

      • belllindsay

         @Craig McBreen  @Erin F.  @Lisa Gerber Does a bear….oh never mind. 😉 

  • C_Pappas

    @ginidietrich You hired @bellindsay !! Woohoo! Congrats Lindsay!!

    • belllindsay

       @C_Pappas Thanks so much! I will be learning lots from these guys, that’s for sure! 🙂 

      •  @belllindsay  @C_Pappas Thanks, Christina! It is indeed bittersweet!

  • Congrats to everyone! Most excellent news. 🙂

    • belllindsay

       @AmyVernon Cheers Amy, big day, onwards and upwards for all! 😀 

  • Congratulations on the move, @belllindsay . And to @Lisa Gerber , best of luck in the future!

    • belllindsay

       @bradmarley  @Lisa Gerber Thanks Brad! Have to learn how to talk like an American now! LOL 

      •  @belllindsay  @Lisa Gerber I think you just add a “u” to everything.

        • belllindsay

           @bradmarley  @Lisa Gerber And “que” – lol 

        •  @belllindsay  @bradmarley Thank you, Brad! We’ll stay in touch! 

  • josiecino

    Congrats to Lindsay and the Spin Sucks team! Lindsay is one of my favourite people both in the online world of social media and in real life too! Best of luck to Lisa Gerber as well 🙂 

    • belllindsay

       @josiecino Awww, you are the best, Josie!! I’m so glad we met – both online and at Social Mix!! T’was great to get a real life hug from you! Rock on, sistah! xo 😀 

  • belllindsay

    @ericamallison Thanks for the share, Erica! 🙂 @SpinSucks

  • belllindsay

    @AmyVernon Thanks for the share Amy, so glad the secret’s now out! LOL Cheers! @SpinSucks

  • MattAndaloro

    Congratulations Lindsay, this is just the best news for a Friday. Spin Sucks is super lucky to have snagged someone as talented as you. I hope that your management of guest bloggers also includes blogging, because the internet would suffer if you were to stop writing! Best o’ luck!

    • belllindsay

       @MattAndaloro Thanks Matt! And I’ll be writing, just let them try and stop me!! LOL Hessie wants me to insert “Canadian’isms” into some content – hahaha! Sabotage!!! xox, LB 

      • MattAndaloro

         @belllindsay Good! I wouldn’t want to see the people who tried to stop you from writing ;). You definitely should, sneak in “cheques”, “toques”, cheese curds (which is what every American poutine lacks), and the infamous “u” wherever you can! 😀 😀

      •  @belllindsay  I fully support the sabotage. I even would participate. I’m sure I could use some Canadian spelling when I write a guest post. 😉

        • belllindsay

           @Erin F. It’s ON! 😉 

        •  @Erin F.  @belllindsay did Lindsay pay @MattAndaloro to write what he did? 

        • belllindsay

           @HowieG  @Erin F.  @MattAndaloro Matt would never tell. Would you Matt. 

        • MattAndaloro

           @belllindsay  @HowieG  @Erin F. Never tell. Mum is the word. #fearisapowerfulmotivator 😉

        • belllindsay

           @MattAndaloro  @HowieG  @Erin F. Also, I’m not your Mum. 

        • MattAndaloro

           @belllindsay  @HowieG  @Erin F. This is also true.

        • belllindsay

           @MattAndaloro  @HowieG  @Erin F. But I can instill the fear of God in young’un’s. #itsamumsjob

      •  @belllindsay  @MattAndaloro I will participate in that! Did someone say honour…and colour…and favourite…and 😉

    •  @MattAndaloro Oh she doesn’t have the option of not writing!

  • JohnRWeathersby

    @kmueller62 Oh my gosh! It’s Friday – geez man, where DOES the time go?

  • You left out you get to pay her in Canadian Puffin Trinkets which saves you a lot of money. Grats @belllindsay  on the move…I think….notice that @Lisa Gerber really isn’t leaving. She was knocked off by Godfather Bauer when she didn’t pay her protection money on time. Oh you weren’t told about the protection money Godfather Bauer demands? Well you might be paid in Canadian Puffin Trinkets but GB demands payment in Gold Bullion or Kilo’s of Opium. So you had better find a source or you will be at the bottom of Lake Tahoe like @Lisa Gerber is after that ahem….skiing accident.
     
     @ginidietrich we all know @belllindsay got her ruffian ways working hard on the T-Town docks helping the Whaling Ships get their sails up and bringing in their catch when they returned. T-Town is a huge whaling port as we all know.

    • belllindsay

       @HowieG  @Lisa Gerber  @ginidietrich Sigh. I heart Howie. 
       
      Remember back when the American dollar was so strong that our dollar pretty much WAS Canadian Puffin Trinkets…!? LOL And yes, blame the whales and their damn peer pressure for me smoking – 10 years old!? Those damn whales. 

      •  @belllindsay  @HowieG  @ginidietrich HAHAHAHA, the Godfather Bauer payment is all your food. now. Or you die a long slow death. And don’t forget, he will actively seek his payment if he has to open refrigerators, tupperware, and get trash cans off of high counter tops – because he can. 

        • belllindsay

           @Lisa Gerber  @HowieG  @ginidietrich Thought you were talking about Pete there for a minute! LOL 

      •  @belllindsay  @HowieG  @Lisa Gerber  @ginidietrich 
         
        Canadian Puffin Trinkets? Is that code for Monopoly Money?  😉

        • belllindsay

           @thejoshuawilner  @HowieG  @Lisa Gerber  @ginidietrich Exactly. 

  • lisagerber

    @john_trader1 Yes, yes they did, but she has MASSIVE um, shoes to fill, so the joke goes. 🙂 @belllindsay

    • John_Trader1

      @lisagerber We are talking battleship sized shoes LG.

      • lisagerber

        @john_trader1 For real, why do you think any photos of me online cut off at the ankles? It’s really really weird looking.

        • John_Trader1

          @lisagerber Ha ha ha! Oh my, that is so so funny. I am sitting here at my desk snickering while others stare.

  • matthixson

    Sweet!

    • belllindsay

       @matthixson Hi Matt!! Isn’t it great!? 😀 

  • John_Trader1

    Sad to hear about @Lisa Gerber stepping down but snaking @belllindsay is quite the coup. Is it me or does the Spins Sucks team just keep getting smarter and deeper with their new hires? Wooing someone like Lindsay must have involved some sort of bribery. 
     
    Looking forward to consuming your content Lindsay, got my fork and knife ready to go. Congrats!

    •  @John_Trader1  It’s all part of my master plan!

    • belllindsay

       @John_Trader1  @Lisa Gerber Wait, what? I could have demanded bribes…?? I’m just hoping for a trip to Chi’town. LOL Thanks for that John, and wow, no pressure on me AT ALL! 😉 

  • Hey Lindsay! Okay, so I’m a little too “new” to know you … yet! And Gini didn’t formally introduce us .. yet, but it’s great to unofficially meet you! Or maybe this IS official, is it?
     
    Anyway, looking forward to getting to know you. You have to be great if you’re a part of planet Gini and from the echos reverberating off the walls of SS I have no doubts. Will be talking to you soon! Happy Friday! 🙂

    • belllindsay

       @Carmelo Hi Carmelo and yes, I consider this an official ‘meet’! 😉 I’m honoured to be a part of SS, and hope to do everyone on the team proud. Cheers, LB 

  • lulugrimm

    @ginidietrich How are you lady? Been a while. Hope you are fabulous!!!

  • pilariglesias

    @belllindsay Congrats Lindsay!!! via @ginidietrich https://t.co/FKwT07af

    • belllindsay

      @pilariglesias Thanks so much Pilar!! Glad the ‘secret’s’ finally out – I’ve been wanting to tell the world! 🙂 @ginidietrich

  • Congratulations @belllindsay . It will be great to see you here much more often than you already are. And I’m sure I speak for all of us when we wish @Lisa Gerber well in her next endeavor.

    • belllindsay

       @Anthony_Rodriguez  @Lisa Gerber Cheers Anthony, appreciate that! 😀 

      •  Thank you,  @Anthony_Rodriguez ! I won’t be far. 🙂 

    •  @Anthony_Rodriguez  @belllindsay  @Lisa Gerber Seconding Anthony here in best wishes to Lisa 🙂 

  • belllindsay

    @howiegoldfarb Thank GOD it wasn’t the Tour D’France!! 🙂 @ginidietrich

  • patmrhoads

    I LOVE it when @ginidietrich tells me to follow someone I’m already following, because it makes me feel a lot smarter, like I already knew how cool @belllindsay was. Truth is, I think Lindsay followed me first, but that’s neither here nor there, right?  As for @Lisa Gerber, I wish you the absolute best of luck in whatever it is you’ll be doing next! To me, change is always a mix of excitement and fear, and I hope for you a huge dose of the former and very little of the latter.

    • belllindsay

       @patmrhoads  @ginidietrich  @Lisa Gerber HA! Too funny. And don’t tell anyone, but I’m the world’s biggest dork. Truth. 😉 

      • patmrhoads

         @belllindsay  Well, maybe I LIKE dorks! 🙂
         

        • belllindsay

           @patmrhoads Phew! 🙂 

  • It’s all about the fanplatitude! Right, @MattAndaloro ?

  • Congratulations Lindsay! What a great opportunity. Here’s wishing you and the whole gang much luck and success!

  • I’m gonna add another already-been-said comment to this stream ‘cuz I know for both of you gals it’s gonna be the best fit evah…and, so sorry to see Ms. Gerber go and grow!? 
     
    So happy you found someone across the border, too; she has always wanted to be American, I can tell. Besides those Canadians just don’t know a good woman when they get their hands on one. (Uhmm, is @Craig McBreen or Ralph Dopping listening, eh?)
     
    Hey, Lindsay…cheers, Girl!

    • belllindsay

       @Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing  @Craig McBreen  Ralph Dopping HAHA! My mom’s American – so I’m what……1/2 American already!? 

    • rdopping

       @Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing  @Craig McBreen  Ralph Dopping McBreen is an American and i find out LBW is 50% too. Good stuff but we still have her. Red rover, red rover…..

  • Keena Lykins

    Congratulations, Lindsay! You’ve joined an agency that walks its talk.
     
    @Gini, if I ever send you my resume I’m going to redo do it just for you. My synopsis will be: Likes beer AND wine, sucks at office politics and has a personal motto: “have laptop, will travel.” LOL!

    •  @Keena Lykins Don’t forget the shoes. If I send my resume, I’ll include “I LOVE shoes!” in my summary of qualifications.

      • Keena Lykins

         @Erin F. Yikes! How could I have forgotten the shoes! Should we include photos of our shoes?
         

        •  @Keena Lykins Oooo, good idea!

        • belllindsay

           @Erin F.  @Keena Lykins I’m a size 7! 😉 Wide. 

        •  @belllindsay  @Keena Lykins Aw, boo. I wear a size 8.
           
          Maybe I’ll just apply to be the illustrator of badges. 😀

    • belllindsay

       @Keena Lykins HA! That’s hilarious. I like wine too – but only red. White gives me a hangover! ;D

  • LiveRob

    @belllindsay Congrats Lindsay! Good things come… and are best celebrated with a #FF beer!

    • belllindsay

      @LiveRob Cheers Rob, having a vodka (or two) tonight! LOL Beer tomorrow! 😀 Everything happens for a reason, right? 🙂

      • LiveRob

        @belllindsay As a guy who is also currently “shaking the snow-globe of life” as I like to call it, I couldn’t agree more!

        • ebonysager

          @belllindsay Congratulations! @LiveRob Booooo…stop shaking my snow globe! @EbonyCox is also against this change.

        • belllindsay

          @LiveRob Really?? You’re shaking the snowglobe? More deets please! 🙂

        • belllindsay

          @ebonysager I love people who shake the snowglobe! @LiveRob @EbonyCox

        • LiveRob

          @belllindsay Leaving a city I love and a job I could keep for 30 years to try something new in Barrie. #SnowGlobeShaker #MightBeCrazy

        • LiveRob

          @ebonysager You know @ebonycox is welcome in Barrie anytime! #PBBinB

        • ebonysager

          @LiveRob @ebonycox she is alway up for an adventure. You better stock up on the V&T. Do they have that in Barrie? #PBBinB

        • LiveRob

          @ebonysager oh stop it. You might have to bring the tonic, but I’m sure they have plenty of vodka in Barrie.

        • ebonysager

          @LiveRob Gimme a break. I’m moving out of my comfort zone. Before now drinks outside of Leslieville or the Beaches was a big deal. ~_^

        • belllindsay

          @LiveRob That is HUGE! But hey, I left the CBC after 20 years to jump into the great unknown, and it was the best thing I ever did. 🙂 #doit

  • macoup63

    @belllindsay Congratulations on your job!!

    • belllindsay

       @sydcon_mktg Thanks Jennifer! I’m thrilled to be a part of it – mondo brain power on that team, needless to say! I hope my general dorky nature doesn’t drive everyone crazy! LMAO!! Cheers! 🙂 

  • belllindsay

    @sydcon_mktg Cheers, and thanks for the share! 🙂 It’s been a wild week!

    • sydcon_mktg

      @belllindsay My pleasure! I was a bit late to see the announcement due to my insane day! Does this mean you might come visit us in Chicago?

      • belllindsay

        @sydcon_mktg I’m hoping too, one day! Have never been there, would love to visit! We *must* meet IRL if I ever do!

        • sydcon_mktg

          @belllindsay Yes we must! Or if the kiddo makes it to canada for hockey!

        • belllindsay

          @sydcon_mktg Yes! 🙂

        • kmueller62

        • belllindsay

          @kmueller62 Morning! How are you doing this fine Saturday!?

        • kmueller62

          @belllindsay just lovely. Thinking it might be a great day to spend some time writing on the porch. Though I do have to mow the lawn.

        • belllindsay

          @kmueller62 I want to just chill today. Wanted to read my paper but it never arrived. GRRR. Might relax and read my Kobo!

        • kmueller62

          @belllindsay well, you could mow my lawn for me…

        • belllindsay

          @kmueller62 Yeah. No thanks.

        • kmueller62

          @belllindsay i’ll remember that…

  • belllindsay

    @Frank_Strong Ha! Thanks Frank, appreciate you sharing my fab news! 🙂 @SpinSucks

    • Frank_Strong

      @belllindsay cheers and congrats!

  • JohnMcCauley

    @belllindsay congrats on the new gig!

    • belllindsay

      @JohnMcCauley Thanks John, it’s my dream to work with Gini and her team. I’m really happy. 😉

  • Office politics? Can you really have ‘office politics’ with a virtual office? Social can be snarky, so I suppose so, huh?
     
    I’m certainly sorry to hear that Lisa is leaving but Lindsay will be a great addition and fit in very well. I know her just enough to have picked up on her sense of humor; I look forward to seeing her around. 
     
    So if you do another #FF for @HowieG are you going to hire him too?
     
    Congrats Lindsay, cool beans indeed. 

    • belllindsay

       @bdorman264  @HowieG Thanks Bill!  And trust me, some of the worst office politics I’ve ever experienced has been virtual. 😉 

  • Congrats and welcome, Lindsay! 
     
    Lisa, best of luck on your future endeavors! It was great working with you on guest posts. 

    • belllindsay

       @Nikki Little Cheers Nikki! 🙂

    •  @Nikki Little It was always great to work with you, Nikki. and I won’t be far. 🙂 I’ll still bump into you ’round here!

  • Wahoo, congratulations Lindsay!! Well deserved, and what an amazing team you guys will be. ROCK!! 🙂

    • belllindsay

       @JulieTyios Thanks Julie!! I’ll be learning lots from this group of smarty-pants, that’s for sure! 😀 xox

  • Congrats and nice to meet you, Lindsay! I look forward to getting to know you. 🙂
     
    But, I am sad to see lisagerber go! I wish you the best, Lisa! 

    • belllindsay

       @lauraclick  lisagerber Cheers Laura, and likewise! 🙂 

    •  @lauraclick  lisagerber Thanks, Laura!! Change is good. 🙂 Lindsay will do some great things here, and I’m excited for the next adventure. 

      •  @Lisa Gerber  lisagerber Can I ask what’s on the horizon for you, Lisa? I’m excited to hear about your next adventure!

        •  @lauraclick  You can ask! 🙂 I am re-launching my business which I put into sleep mode for the past few years. I’ll have more news in October. 

        •  @Lisa Gerber Awesome! Do keep us posted. 🙂

  • Just catching up on my weekend blogs, so I am just seeing this now!  Woohoo HUGE congrats to Lindsay! What a great addition to the Arment-Dietrich team! I can’t wait to see what sort of amazeballs mischief you two will concoct together. Exciting day for you both!

    • belllindsay

       @RebeccaTodd  I will leave all the mischief making to ‘da boss! LOL Couldn’t be happier Rebecca, feel very lucky. 😀 xox

      •  @belllindsay Ahh I don’t believe in luck! I believe in people being rewarded for their hard work and thoughtful soul. So I find this to be very deserved rather than in any way tied to chance. Don’t be so humble- you kick ass lady! xxoo

        • belllindsay

           @RebeccaTodd And YOU just made my DAY!!!! *hugs* 🙂 

  • Gini,
    Welcome to international! Everything happens for a reason, enjoy the blessing of getting to work with Lindsay. Welcome to Gini’s team, Lindsay! Have fun!
    Lisa, I’m sure you will be missed. I just know, you are going on to great blessings for you too! 
     

    • belllindsay

       @janbeery Thanks Jan! 🙂 

    •  @janbeery There are some interesting things I’m learning. Things you don’t even think about in the U.S. But it’s all in the name of growth. 

      •  @ginidietrich Oh Yeah! I know what you mean! 

      • belllindsay

         @ginidietrich  @janbeery It’s Canada’s goal to take over Spin Sucks. Stealth! 😀 

  • CatNickery

    @belllindsay Loved the announcement! That’s how every new hire should be announced 🙂 Didn’t realize you already started! 😀 how’s it going?

    • belllindsay

      @CatNickery Yeah, pretty cool, I must say! Things are going great, just getting comfy with different platforms, etc.. Thanks!
