Twitter Spotlight: Chris Illuminati

For starters, yes, that’s his real name.

I'm a glasses half full kind of guy

Chris Illuminati is an author (books here!), editor, comedian, Post It abuser, ‘permanent roommate’ and dad. However you decide to consume his work, Chris will leave you laughing. He cracks me up and that’s a damn good reason to feature him in this week’s Twitter Spotlight.

Twitter Spotlight: Nikki Rappaport

I’m excited to feature Nikki Rappaport of Cupcakes for Breakfast in this week’s Twitter Spotlight. Nikki is friends with many of my DC favorites including @Tammy so it seems inevitable that we’ll meet someday. Hopefully soon!

While a lot of Nikki’s blog posts and tweets are about food, I also really like her home decor aesthetic. Don’t miss a peek at her cheerful apartment (tour here).

Twitter Spotlight: Joanne Ross

Joanne is one of the nicest people I’ve never met. If you’re on Twitter, you know what I mean. Twitter friends are real.

Joanne, a lover of corgis and the Detroit Pistons, and I first connected thanks to NBA Twitter, but now she feels like a real life buddy.

One day soon, I hope, we’ll get to meet. For now, we’ll make do with a Twitter Spotlight.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@JoannePistonFan: Dog lover, sports fan, and I love when people are able to laugh at themselves when something goes wrong.

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@JoannePistonFan: Pragmatic.

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@JoannePistonFan: My friends allow me to feel okay being myself–my weird, WEIRD self–, and will listen to anything from a serious rant to me giggling like a fool over an episode of Archer.

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@JoannePistonFan: I love the thought of an evening with my husband and dog, good food, and watching a Detroit sports team win.

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@JoannePistonFan: Being stuck in traffic.

OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character

@JoannePistonFan: Arya Stark from Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire series.

OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink

@JoannePistonFan: Fajitas and coffee, but not together. I would prefer a margarita with fajitas.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without

@JoannePistonFan: My iPhone, lip balm, DVR, coffeemaker, and does my dog count as a thing? It feels bizarre calling my dog a thing, so I will add my Pistons hat.

ShannonShannon has lots of updates for us:

I switched up my career path a little bit! Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Dave Stroup

Even though I left DC a few years ago, I love featuring Capital-area dwellers in the Twitter Spotlight. They’re smart and informed and passionate. Am I generalizing? Sure, a bit. But it’s my blog so I get to do that.

Today you’ll meet digital strategist, writer and photographer Dave Stroup. His web site bio calls out his experiences and accomplishments plus some good basic rules for living. When I read “when in doubt, Google it,” I wanted to send it to every intern in the world.

Here’s Dave.

Twitter Spotlight: Jesse Berney

It’s not unusual for me to start a Twitter Spotlight by saying that I love the person’s tweets. That’s how this process starts, after all.

With Jesse Berney, I like that his tweets are a great mix of funny and smart. Sometimes I even learn something!
