Social media listening for marketers & my Expo plans
I thought about not writing this issue because I’m so worn out but I’m sure someone would’ve questioned me. Honestly, I’m keeping this newsletter going via my promise to you that it’d be every 2 weeks on [my time zone] Wednesday. This accountability is really what motivates me. So if you’re finding yourself floundering, figure out what keeps you motivated. It could be an accountability partner, a detailed to-do list, or self-imposed deadlines.
Next week, I’ll be in Boston for SCA Expo. On Friday, I’m one of the Design Lab judges. On Saturday, I’m hosting the 3rd annual SCA Game Night at Pavement Coffeehouse. Throughout the weekend, I’ll be in and out of Acaia’s booths (899, M16). So come say hi!

Gender At The Cupping Table: An Exploration (Part Two)
Kiana Cruz, who roasts for Progeny Coffee in Berkeley, CA, says early cupping experiences impacted her confidence for years.
“Sometimes I still feel a little bit intimidated to go into a cupping, especially when I’m outnumbered in terms of gender or identity. I feel like I have to put on a different persona in cupping.
