    Going to the Big Apple for Social Media Week!

    Well, I can't believe it, but I'm about to go to New York City for the first time. Thankfully, I'm going with my wife and also my supervisor, who is totally comfortable with the big city. As I've blogged before, I'm not a big fan of traveling. In fact, I've only been out of the U.S. once (just across the border to Niagara Falls, Canada, in 2003) and I've never been west of Oklahoma City. I've never been to a big city other than Philadelphia for New Year's 2011 and Atlanta when I was in college in the '90s. In fact, I've summed up my lifetime travels on this Google Map:

    But when AccuWeather asked me to go to Social Media Week 2013, I looked at the awesome seminars there and knew I couldn't stay away (for any of you who don't know, I've been the Social Media Coordinator for AccuWeather.com for the past three years and Community Manager before that).

    STAY TUNED all week for poignant and important updates from the experts at Social Media Week New York and, of course, my commentary and pics of the big city by following me on Facebook:

    P.S.: Of course, the weather is going to mess with me -- in fact the entire country is going into a stormier pattern for this week, meaning I could be in the middle of some major nor'easters...
