outtakes from our shoot for Omahype’s 2012 cat calendar

Posing in a cat calendar was never on my bucket list, but maybe it should have been! Omahype, a local website that promotes all the cool stuff going on in the arts scene here in Omaha (their office is in my building!), recently put out their first annual cat calendar with photographer Daniel Muller. The calendar features photos of Omaha artists, business owners and musicians as well as, of course, their cats.

I love the picture that ended up in the calendar–it’s in our bedroom shot through my vintage mirror, and shows my racks of dresses behind me. But here are a few outtakes from the shoot Dave and I did with Daniel Muller along with our cat, Turbo. He’s a four-year-old tabby cat.

The calendar also features tons of other cool people with their cats, like Rachel Jacobson, founder of Film Streams, vegan chef and author Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Nate Welker from Saddle Creek Records, and more. If you want to purchase a calendar, they are available online for $20!

Me: Nanette Lapore dress, Odille blouse, FCUK sweater, Target socks

    DAVE!!! How cool of you to don the tiger/cat costume!
    Love the shot with Dave draped over the chair, in a very cat like pose, looking at Turbo, in a very catlike way, and the very fun shoes, placed just so, in a very Megan like way!

OOTD: Windy, Rainy, Snowy, Sunny.

I'm doing a panel talk tonight (my fourth of the week), then Friday morning I'm leaving at 6am for Ikea in Kansas City, then driving on to Bentonville Arkansas for an event at the Crystal Bridges Museum, then back up north to Chicago for a Bears game on Sunday, then back west through Iowa to Omaha to arrive Monday night and get to work again. Then it's gearing up for Thanksgiving week, which will be the most important week of my online (and beyond...) retail career.

Leaving a Mark: A new mural project in Benson

Omaha artist Watie White is currently creating a series of murals in partnership with Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska where he interviews and creates a linocut portrait of several new immigrants to Omaha. With support of other organizations including the Intercultural Senior Center, Omaha Public Schools, the South Sudan Community Association, and the Anti-Defamation League, he's creating these small-scale carved portraits and then turning the art into giant murals all over town. This is one of two murals Watie is doing currently in the neighborhood of Benson in Omaha--you can see it on the side of the Benson Law Center. The themes in the text are inspiring--the desire for education, the bravery of leaving home in hopes of a better life, and a compulsion to give back to the communities that have welcomed them.

OOTD: Wooly and warm on Election Day. Go vote!

Go vote today! Every midterm election matters. Our local officials are the ones who are both most accessible to us, and who have the most impact on our daily lives. Partisan interest groups thrive on indifference, and sitting out of the vote serves only to continue the status quo of gridlock and fear-based campaigning. Locals, show the big money coming into Nebraska's races that we're smarter than that.

OOTD: Pleats and Posies

This dress gets filed into my personal "business drag" collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person's board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.
