OK. Lou Gramm I’m not.

But neither are you – so leave me alone.

Seriously… the first 2 weeks of work have been jam packed. Things are going well. I jumped in with both feet and hit the ground at a quick jog and haven’t had time to look back yet. I hadn’t even realized that there wasn’t a post about my first week until I started getting reminders from TravelinGirl76 and djcunnin. Sorry folks.

I like my office, the people I work with and the stuff I’m doing A LOT. I’ve had to dust off some of my analytical skills as well tidy up the cobwebs on the math side of my brain. I’ve been working at compiling online ad stats (pageviews, visits, CTR and more) using a variety of different tools for about 50-60 sites that F+W owns. More on that later. Suffice it to say it’s a great way to learn about everything going on here.

I helped prepare the monthly reports the first week I was here, got to send them out to everyone and already got my feet wet answering questions from some of the online marketing managers. I think this is going to be a great match for my skillset… analytical thinking, web experience, some programming and some people-skills. There’s also a good bt of “why isn’t this working” brainstorming going on with my boss, which I highly enjoy. My mom can definitely vouch for that — I started at a very young age by always asking her… “Mom, ask me a hard question.”

Well, these are definitely some difficult ones. But I’m up to the challenge. I started practicing a long time ago.

More later…
